Patria Interiore / Inner Homeland

Patria Interiore / Inner Homeland was published on the occasion of the exhibition Patria Interiore curated by Manuela Pacella in March 2012. It was conceived for the project space of the Golden Thread Gallery in Belfast where 8 Italian artists – Alessandro Cannistrà, Ilaria Loquenzi, Emiliano Maggi, Stefano Minzi, Luana Perilli, Moira Ricci, Alessandro Rosa e Beatrice Scaccia – tackled the theme of memory, using Marcel Proust’s work and the film Un’ora sola ti vorrei (For One More Hour With You) by Alina Marazzi as reference points. This publication contains the photographic documentation of Patria Interiore / Inner Homeland, articles by Giuseppe Di Giacomo and Manuela Pacella and a section comprised of 10 artist projects conceived for the book and inspired by the reading of Les Intermittences du cœur, from Proust’s Recherche du temps perdu, in the volume Sodome et Gomorrhe. What’s more, the catalogue’s visual presentation renders it precious like the artworks on display, because it reflects the diversity of the artists chosen, united by the Proustian common denominator, thanks to a multi-subject cover – different, that is, for every artist – with an out-of-focus detail taken from the work on display and the embossed, tone on tone printing of the opening and closing phrases of Proust’s novel: “Longtemps, je me suis couché” on the front and “dans le temps” on the back cover.
