Opening: 6 Septembre at 6.00pm – Contemporary Cluster | Via Merulana 248, Rome, Palazzo Brancaccio.

The exhibition was created with the intention of investigating the possible forms of rituality that emerge from the use of technological devices as well as from the pervasive use of the Web. Straddling social critique, emancipation and imagination, the works on display, whether installations or multimedia performances, will thus engage the public by directly interacting with the diverse subjectivities of visitors while returning new visions about possible futures.
Through a multidisciplinary perspective that brings together spirituality, esotericism and science, the artists in the exhibition investigate the idea of rituality from its origins to the present day, in a context where technology has become an integral part of the collective ritual experience. The uncritical gaze, blind trust, and sometimes unchecked fear of techno-scientific progress can be read today as a modern form of belief; on the other hand, the very languages of the irrational and ritual can shed light on new perspectives for reading the complexity of the present.

Angolo Vivo by Andrea Cecconi, Martino Cassanelli and Olimpia Zamò, is an interactive installation that allows the audience to experience the modern assumptions of Quantum Theory that the indeterminacy and fluctuation of matter confront us with a plural reality in which events exist in multiple possibilities of states.
There is no shortage of reflections on the impact of human presence on the environment: the immersive sound installation Broken Balance by Giulia Vietti transports the audience on an initiatory journey of discovery of the marine world. Through this sound and meditative experience, the user is invited to reflect on the impacts of ocean noise pollution by developing empathy beyond the observable.
Dedicated instead to the relationship between religion and spirituality is the installation Light Stream di Martino Cassanelli and Daniele Imani Nobar which compares Buddhist meditative experience with Islamic collective prayer and identifies a link between these practices and modern video surveillance technologies.
Jeno by Martina Carbone explores the ancient ritual of tarantism, typical of areas in southern Italy, highlighting the social aspects related to the genre but also the decisive role of sound in relation to body movements.
Finally, Hic est Ignes by the collective Blivet (Alessandro Battaglia, Benedetta Marino, Beatrice Resta, Marco Valera, Micol Gelsi, Riccardo Tartaglia, Paolo Rucci) stimulates deep reflection on nature and the relationship between humans and the primordial element of fire, a collective reverie that opens up new perspectives on human transformation and imagination.
These two works also include a performance moment that will be held at the opening.
