Rosa Mundi.

è lo pseudonimo d’artista dietro il quale si cela l’anima autentica ideatrice della BIAS – Biennale Internazionale Arte Contemporanea Sacra delle Religione dell’Umanità www.biasinstitute.it che ogni due anni apre 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.

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. In 2016, she was selected by the Politecnico of Torino to exhibit at Thetis Art Space at the International Architecture Biennale in Venice; furthermore, she exhibited her work “Lupara to Borotalco” at the Venice Arsenale (from May to November 2016) in the exhibition Gang City. 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

Trip Fragment to Palmyra

Tracks: Officium 1 DVA – Officium 3

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
