Zootropio :: An Exhibition/Event in Temporary Spaces, November 5-6, 2011


A week-end in temporary spaces

Cadriano (BO) – ITALY

zoetrope [zoh-ee-trohp]. Invented in 1834 by William George Horner, a rotating drum that induced an illusion of movement from drawn or painted pictures. From the Greek words ζωή – zoo, “life” and τρόπος – tropos, “turn”, it may be taken to mean wheel of life. [Definition from Encyclopædia Britannica.]

Zootropio takes place during the weekend of 5-6 November 2011. Besides installations and projections, that will be shown for the entire time of the event, the weekend schedule includes a series of performances on Saturday night and artist/curator talks on Sunday evening, and a series of local wine and food tastings.

Zootropio is born from an urgency towards a spontaneous creativity, that goes beyond the suffocating frame of the market and the social void. The space doesn’t belong to a commissioner. It is a recently built warehouse and will host the event being temporarily vacant as a consequence of bad economy.

Vênus et Milö get themselves involved in art, publishing and design, and have a taste for challenging projects.
