Rosa Mundi.

è lo pseudonimo di un’artista  dietro il quale si cela l’anima autentica di una complessa filosofia dell’arte, mista di ricerca antropologica e storica all’estetica. Rosa Mundi nel corso della sua attività ha sperimentato diverse forme d’arte, da quella plastica e pittorica, sino a quella fotografica, performativa e cinematografica in un viaggio, quasi inarrestabile, verso la conoscenza di sé e del mondo attraverso la sua lente ed il suo cono ottico. Poco importa il suo essere uomo o donna, d’origine europea o medio orientale, il colore della sua pelle o l’origine della sua nazionalità, né l’immagine del suo viso  nel retro delle sue opere, ciò che conta per Rosa Mundi è l’introspezione ed  il rielaborato artistico umano del suo sguardo sul mondo. 

Sin dal 1993 l’artista decide di operare con un nome di fantasia capace di racchiudere  e veicolare la sua principale essenza di artista che guarda al mondo ed agli eventi che si susseguono come il continuo sbocciare di una rosa. Uno pseudonimo capace di contenere al suo interno sia l’estetica che il profumo dell’arte, il suo essere immanente ed elemento essenziale delle civiltà di tutti tempi e di tutti i popoli. Consapevole della difficoltà di svincolarsi dal relativismo culturale di cui ciascun individuo, anche inconsapevolmente risulta essere colpito, l’artista sceglie oltre che per denominarsi ma anche per operare, la lingua latina come anche l’aramaico ed il greco antico, meglio definite lingue morte. Rosa Mundi quasi a volergli ridare nuova linfa vitale, colloca le lingue morte, sprovviste di una civiltà vivente che le pratichi, al centro del suo operare, restituendogli un ruolo universalmente a temporale che racchiude al suo interno un’idea di concetto spaziale linguistico. All’interno delle opere di Rosa Mundi, spesso attraverso l’uso di antiche tecniche naturali fluorescenti l’artista lascia traccia del sapere custodito nell’opera. Indizio e chiave della conoscenza lasciata solo al custode, collezionista delle sue opere, diviene legame indissolubile nel tempo tra la creazione artistica e il detentore nel tempo dell’opera stessa.

La rarefazione dei limiti di una visione nazionalistica dell’arte, promossa dall’artista, portata poi all’estremo, diviene negli ultimi 15 anni uno dei principali banchi di prova di Rosa Mundi, spingendo l’artista nel 2009 a a sviluppare un concetto nuovo di Biennale di Arte Contemporanea, figlio del suo tempo  a cavallo tra la fine del 1900 e il 2000 e del padre dell’astrattismo di Kandinsky , in cui l’arte non è francese, tedesca, americana, cinese, siriana, iraniana ma è dall’artista coniata come arte now.

della ideatrice della transnazionale Biennale Internazionale di Arte Contemporanea Sacra delle Religione dell’Umanità, altresì denominata con l’acronimo BIAS (www.biasinstitute.it).

Rosa Mundi infatti nel suo personalissimo percorso laboratoriale di artista  dimorando in diverse città europee, dell’area mediterranea e del medio-oriente, oltre a sentire l’esigenza di esistere in  creata nel 2009, ogni due anni apre agli artisti di  in Sicilia e a margherita in altri luoghi d’Italia, Europa Asia, Africa, Oriente e Medio Oriente. Rosa Mundi vive tra due città d’acqua, elemento naturale che, tra i quattro empedoclei, ne rappresenta appieno la capacità di rimodellarsi e vivificare. Artista poliedrica, instancabile viaggiatrice, attraverso scritti, fotografie, video, installazioni in tecnica mista, crea forme sempre in bilico tra il mondo fenomenico, reale, e quello immaginifico, metafisico.

La sua creatività è una costante dialettica tra indagine sociale e tensione trascendente, immersa in una luce ora malinconica ora trionfale, alla ricerca dell’infinito e del non limite del limite.

Ha frequentato l’Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, l’Accademia di Belle Arti Strasburgo, si è affinata all’Ecole Martenot di Parigi, e ha esposto in Italia e all’Estero (Europa, Egitto, Israele, Siria) dal 1992 ad oggi.

Rosa Mundi

Is the pseudonym of an artist behind whom lies the authentic soul of a complex philosophy of art, a mixture of anthropological and historical research with aesthetics. During her career Rosa Mundi has experimented with different forms of art, from the plastic and pictorial one, up to the photographic, performative and cinematographic one in an almost unstoppable journey towards the knowledge of herself and the world through her lens and its optical cone. It matters little whether he is a man or woman, of European or Middle Eastern origin, the color of his skin or the origin of his nationality, nor the image of his face reflected in the back of his works, what matters for Rosa Mundi it is the introspection and the human artistic reworking of his gaze on the world.

Since 1993 the artist has decided to operate with a fictional name, capable of enclosing and conveying his main essence as an artist, which looks at the world and at the events that follow one another with the constant amazement that precedes the blossoming of a rose.

A pseudonym capable of containing both the aesthetics and the scent of art, its immanent being and an essential element of the civilizations of all times and of all peoples. Aware of the difficulty of freeing oneself from the cultural relativism of which each individual, even unwittingly is a bearer, the artist chooses not only to name himself but also to operate, the Latin language as well as Aramaic and ancient Greek, better defined dead languages.

Rosa Mundi, in the main attempt to give it new vital lymph, places dead languages, devoid of a living civilization that practices them, at the center of her work, giving them a universally temporal role that contains within it an idea of ​​linguistic spatial concept .

Within Rosa Mundi’s works, through the use of ancient natural fluorescent techniques, traces of the knowledge preserved in the work can often be seen. His reflections are in fact hidden among the meshes of his works, within them. The verb kept in the womb of his art, in addition to giving a strongly spiritual connotation to the meaning of the same, has the dual function of repositioning the work in the heart of human thought, i.e. the word and the infinite possibilities of being interpreted and / or associated. . Rosa Mundi creates art and verb at the same time, leaving inside it a clue and the key to knowledge only to the keeper, collector of her works, creating an indissoluble and temporal link between the artistic creation and the holder of the work itself over time .

The rarefaction of the limits of a nationalistic vision of art, promoted by the artist, then taken to the extreme, became in the last 15 years one of Rosa Mundi’s main proving grounds, prompting the artist in 2009 to develop a new concept of Biennial of Contemporary Art or BIAS (www.biasinstitute.it), the first transnational biennial of contemporary art in which artists are called to participate, freeing themselves from nationalistic cataloging preferring, among the possible, the association with spiritual paradigms linked to essence of the artist in his relationship to the world. The BIAS, as a sort of call to “arms”, a sort of great collective performance (as some artists have defined it) was conceived by the artist as a large abstract platform, a sort of non-place philosophically speaking, in which everyone the artists of the world can take the opportunity to dig in their own artistic experience the inspiring canons of their own creation and their place in the universe in the era of globalization, of Cyber ​​space, of the opening of borders.

The BIAS is, as already coined by the artist in 2010, art now despite the awareness of being the daughter of a cycle that has now ended, magnificently represented by the Venice Biennale, the strong point of the historicization of contemporary art, a fixed point of the apparent end of “municipal” wars that have afflicted humanity from the first millennia BC to the Second World War.

Rosa Mundi has lived in various European cities, in the Mediterranean area and in the Middle East, and constantly feels the need to experiment and experiment, but she has lived in particular between two cities of water, a natural element that, among the four empedoclei , fully represents its ability to remodel and revitalize. Multifaceted artist, tireless traveler, through writings, photographs, videos, mixed media installations, she creates forms always poised between the phenomenal, real, and the imaginative, metaphysical world.

His creativity is a constant dialectic between social investigation and transcendent tension, immersed in a light that is now melancholic, now triumphal, in search of the infinite and the non-limit of the limit.

He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, the Academy of Fine Arts in Strasbourg, he was

She was born at the intersection of the coordinates 5 ° 26’23 ” Noth and 12 ° 19 ’55” East. Is an artist’s pseudonym. She lives between two European Islands, the location of which the artist wants to keep as a secret. A tireless traveler, dedicated to art and photography, and later video art, over twenty years, she transposes into art and artistic phenomena real events of everyday life and environmental phenomena. She uses different media, from photography, by reinterpreting it in an imaginative constant dialogue between reality and imagination, including complex installations made of textiles, plexiglass, iron, steel, wooden structures. She attended Painting, Sculpture, Choreography and Art History classes at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, the Academy of Fine Arts in Strasburg, the Ecole Martenot in Paris. Over the past 20 years she has exhibited in Strasbourg, in Venice, in Paris, in Deauville, in Vimoutiers, in Canapville, in Neuilly sur Seine, in Palerme, in Salemi (Trapani), in Castelporrona (Grosseto), in Montecarlo (Lucca), in Siena.

She also participated in the Contemporary Art Biennale in Venice in 2011. Moreover, in 2016 Rosa Mundi completed a large project written in 2009, consisting in a huge interdisciplinary performance named BIAS – in both Venice and Palermo – involving more than 77 artists from all over the world in an ‘innovative concept of transnational Biennale focused on the artist’s spirituality, instead of on the nationality or language they speak’. She also exhibited at the Museum RISO – Palazzo Belmonte, in the Palermo Cathedral, the Palace of the Eagles and the Theatiner Church. In November 2016, at the Morsasco Castle, she held a solo exhibition of photos entitled “The Stone”, sponsored by Ace Castles and the Piedmont Region. In September 2016, she attended the international exhibition in Helsinki Finnish called Piexelache, with a video installation titled Virtual Mapping ADMID Animals Morph Empathic Phisiognomy, on the theme of empathy, reworking the principles of the darkroom by Gian Battista La Porta. Since February 2016, she has been co-working with Dimora Oz. In 2015, she exhibited at Palazzo Monte di Pieta in Palermo, at the exhibition entitled ‘Sicily – The Face of Humanity’, sponsored by ABI, an exhibition which travelled around the headquarters of some Italian banks. In 2015, she co-directed and started writing the screenplay of the film ‘The Other Side of Corleone’. In 2009, she wrote the historical philosophical novel ‘The Bestiary in the Rose Garden’, based on the Neoplatonism of Pico della Mirandola. In 2014, she exhibited in the group exhibition ‘The Power of Diversity’ – for UNESCO DESS, inside the Church of the Three Kings, at Serpotta, in Palermo, a city under nomination for inscription on the World Heritage List

You thanks the Regina Zenobia that it dared to rebel to the Empire Romano, to Cleopatra, to Didone and Semiramide, St. Simeone Stilita the Old one and to the Archaeologist Khaled Asaad.

You thanks the humanity of Palmyra She Marries some desert, to the waters of the river Euphrates, the long Palms that encircled his/her course, the humanity of the Krak des Chevaliers, Qalʿat Ṣalāḥ al-Dīn , the ruins of the Fortress of Simeone Qal.at Sim.an, to the humanity of the temple of Baalshamin, to the humanity of the temple of Baal.

Palmyra, the city of palms, was the name of an ancient city of Syria, destroyed by the Arabs in the 6th century. It was an important caravan center on the Euphrates River, in the Syrian desert, where welfare and wealth were at everyone’s reach. The kingdom of Palmyra dates back to 267 BC. It was a place of tolerance, a crossroad of religions that lived together freely. Bet – Zabbai, the Aramaic name of Zenobia, means Zabbai’s daughter. In the Historia Augusta, she was represented as a chaste, charismatic, attentive and generous Queen who did not hesitate to take part in battles with his soldiers, either on horseback or on a chariot. Zenobia was very educated, she spoke Aramaic, Egyptian, Greek and Latin and nourished her court of intellectuals and philosophers. She wanted autonomy from the Roman Empire and wanted to gather under her kingdom Asia Minor and Egypt. She succeeded in stealing Arabia from the Romans with the help of the Parties. But in 272 a.c. she had to surrender to Rome Caput Mundi.

Today the city of Palmira, Syria, is the symbol of a conflict that has lasted since March of 2011, gives of an apparent revolt against the President Bashar Assad, actually to that moment praised representative of a sure and secular State, a sort of safety pad of the doors of the heat middle East.

A camouflaged civil war, disclosed then him in the scientific fury Jihadista and in the destroying violence of the men than to the Al Qaeda, that today reveals him and it is delineated without more border than doubt, a war on the field among two different aces: the monarchies of the Gulf, Turkey and the same United States to which the intervention of Iran and the militias is contrasted Lebanese sciite of Hezbollah beside Assad. The war doesn’t save anybody, it strikes above all the civilians daily causing slaughters and the massacres.

The media and the international politics seemed definite to dismiss the President Assad when September 30 th 2015 Russia has intervened supporting the troops of Damask. The scenery is complicated.

Today in Syria a war is fought for proxy where the principal involved powers. regional and world – the people use – the humanity of Palmira of the XXI symbol – as of the pedines, unintentional fighters.The victims’ number, according to the  sirian observatory , is in continuous increase: 312.000 corpses 149.000 civilians 16.000 children and thousand of fugitive. Numbers destined to increase every day that passes.

The fugitive ones of passage, the humanity in transit – The Passengers – they are stolen of their daily life, unaware keepers of the testimonies of a glorious past, people is used as shield of archaeological sites that make to shiver the international community, are forced to escape and to cross the Door. The Door – to abandon everything, to slip in the dark of an unknown future and to jump in the void. The Jump – of the Mare Internum Nostrum
