I-DEA, together with Open Design School, is one of the two main projects of Matera Capitale Europea della Cultura 2019, which is based on the artistic revisiting of the archive material and collections of the Basilicata region. In this way, the meaning of archive is totally reversed, from a place where to store sources and testimonies to a place where to take elements and transform them, making them lose their initial nature.
Visione Unica consists of an installation made up of 5 projections, 10 screens and a series of vernacular objects, which tell the story of the place where they were born and lived. Every single object and screen can be seen as a unique work or as a small part of the whole, the type of reading you want to give depends solely on the viewer.
The more you look at the elements in the exhibition, the more you can see a common thread that unites them all, as if the central theme was the relationship between man and territory and how the latter changes because of or simply in relation to the first one.
