Juana Gómez is an artist who turns her gaze towards the inside, towards her inner part, towards everything that is not visible to the naked eye.
She embroiders her bones, muscles, veins and synapses that lie under her skin and she does it on beautiful self-portraits. She traces her biological structure making it visible, just like that of many elements found in nature. Her goal is to connect the interior and exterior, connect the microcosmos with the macro cosmos in order to bring them closer together.
“There is fundamental law that can be seen in the veins of a leaf, the course of rivers and their tributaries, the circuits of the central nervous system, the currents of the sea, and the routes of traffic on the Internet. Deciphering this common language, which connects the micro cosmos with the macro cosmos, the external and the interior world, allows us to distinguish a pattern that influences inert, biological, social and cultural systems.”

Zosen, an Argentinean street artist, has decided to paint a wall for peace, for a future without borders, without prejudice, without paranoia, only with freedom and love. The work was made in Jerusalem, in Israel, precisely in a public market in the industrial district of Talpiot. Despite their colorful and playful aesthetics, Zosen’s works are known to speak out against social injustice in the world and beyond. The multicolored, two-dimensional characters, though meaningless at first glance, criticize the corruption of today’s society.
It was a great challenge for him and an enormous responsibility to paint his first mural in Jerusalem with all the ideas and prejudices existing in Israel. Before he started talking to the locals, he discovered that the younger generation is tired of these problems. For example, in Jerusalem they have their own stone to build their houses, by law they can only use this white/cream stone and it is not possible to paint on it, so he decided to paint only on concrete. During the time he was there, the government was organizing the third election for prime minister in a year because nobody on the political scene seems to represent the interests of all the citizens living in Israel today.
With a few lines on his social media, Zosen explained why he decided to take this very job. “It’s time to think global, our home is the earth and we must share with others, not be selfish, remember history so as not to repeat the same mistakes. One world, one love!

The French designer and artist Arnauld Lapierre has delivered his latest installation “AZIMUT” to the magical city of Venice. It consists of 16 batteries and motors recycled in steel and repainted in black, in which 16 mirrors have been mounted, which gently rotate in order to offer a fragmented view of the architecture of the city.
The Gothic of the city from another point of view, sitting on the shore of the slavers it will be possible to admire the architectural details that fragment and enlarge, offering a captivating new view. Motorized and synchronized, the discs of the mirror slowly direct the viewer’s gaze towards the Doge’s Palace to the bell tower of San Marco, to the church of San Giorgio Maggiore which is facing the water.
The French architect is known for his work with mirrors, this project by Lapierre aims to offer the viewer a “dislocated immersion of reality and abstract contemplation“. By abstracting and fragmenting the existing architecture, he recomposes it into a sort of network. A dynamic art installation that offers an alternative perspective of Venice.
AZIMUT offers a glimpse of the architectural elements and the sky above it, offering “the possibility of an escape both detailed and fractioned from our environment“.
