From 2014 to today the Pianoterra Onlus project, now in its fifth edition, has counted the participation of more than 200 artists, all united by the same desire to support pregnant women, new mothers and young children born in contexts of marginality and discomfort.
The new edition of The Milky Way, which will be held on February 6 from 12 to 21 and Friday 7 from 10 to 16 at Galleria Franco Noero in Turin, will revolve around the theme Interno/Inner, as the curator Damiana Leoni tells us.
“Is it convenient? Comfortable? Protective? Perhaps it recalls the first “interior” known, the mother’s womb. Soft and reassuring sounds, first of all the regular beating of a heart, that of the body that contains us. A soft, muffled interior, no changes in temperature, no trauma, no deprivation of food or water. The right space, neither too big nor too small, perfect for a human being to grow inside it. Or is it narrow? Compressed? Contract? What happens in a space like this? What happens in an interior that does not protect but compress, that does not cradle but contracts? If that interior is not enough to breathe, to open and dissolve, but on the contrary it stiffens, hinders, turns off… what happens?”
The mission of The Milky Way, with the help of artists such as Isabel Barber, Claudia Comte, Yves Scherer, Enrico Tealdi, Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys and many others, is to help the most vulnerable families in Naples, Rome and the provinces with the proceeds from the sale of the works on display, thus supporting the mission of Pianoterra Onlus.
