Abstract


A Nation of Migrants
2016, 8 mins

The video investigates conceptual and methodological aspects of the artwork The Bank of the Migrating Germplasm (2016) developed for the second edition of the program Connective Residency at Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto (curated by Cecilia Guida and Juan Sandoval). The ‘bank’ is built on the relations, the stories and the moments of conviviality and dialogue with local actors, including the temporary guests of the asylum seekers centers near Biella. It’s a paradoxical device, able to record social interactions in
the form of foreign seeds from displaced gardens, created by migrants for migrants, and scattered around Biella and beyond its territory, in many other Italian regions.
