description

Gardentopia is the Matera2019 project on green culture and active citizenship bred by contemporary art: a green utopia that transforms gardens into community places that are accessible to all citizens, with the involvement of 18 artists coordinated by the curator Pelin Tan who will work on 32 community gardens spread throughout the region.

The artist Leone Contini will work alongside the citizens in the community garden of San Costantino Albanese.

 

Leone Contini studied Philosophy and Cultural Anthropology at Siena University. His research, on the edge between ethnography and art, is focused on intercultural frictions, conflict and power relations, displacement, migration and diasporas. His mediums include installations,
