Ceramic Installation Argentina

Collective work in Argentina 2009.

Participation in the event « Tiles of Artists – Ceramics – Art Public and Participative ».

A project of valorization and diffusion of ceramic art born in 2004, conceived by the plastic artist Cristina del Castillo.

The municipality of Paso de los Libres greatly appreciated the project and consequently supported the initiative for several years.

To clarify the idea, each artist was invited to create a handmade tile, measuring 25x25 cm.

And then send it to Argentina for the realization of the public installation.

The theme of decoration was free, but with two unique prerogatives: to express one's creativity and to use two ranges of colours, blue and green.

The project was certainly a success, because it has been the subject of several editions.

Above all because the participation of ceramists from all over the world was important.

To better understand this project, and to see the artists' tiles...

The collective work saw the participation of ceramists from 37 countries, and above all 630 tiles produced.

Thus was born the "Sirena Partenope", a majolica work dedicated to my hometown, Naples, in the south of Italy.

The "Sirena Partenope" is inspired by the legend of the birth of Naples.

The use of turquoise color for the realization is in the same line of the colors of the sea and the sky of my city.

The 2009 edition saw the creation of two public spaces in the city of Paso de los Libres: Plaza Solís and Plazoleta Solís.
