“Today the Atelier is a wonderful traveling zoo of linguistic inventions and creatures of Justice.” La Repubblica
Piccola Liturgia Errante is a challenging project, the first autonomous and “urgently authentic” production created by Atelier dell’Errore. Established in 2002 by artist Luca Santiago Mora, Atelier dell’Errore is a visual arts workshop created for the Children’s Neuropsychiatric department of AUSL, Reggio Emilia and since 2013 also for the A.O. Papa Giovanni XXIII, Bergamo. During its sixteen years of activity, has become not only a precious addition to the clinical activity but also a true “relational artwork”.
A performative video-reading in liturgical guise in which the extraordinary protagonists give life to a truly unique experience through readings, performance, prophesies and dramatizations of the Gospel of Atelier dell’Errore.
Atelier dell’Errore is a project established in 2002 by artist Luca Santiago Mora. It is a visual arts workshop created for the Children’s Neuropsychiatric department of AUSL of Reggio Emilia. In 2011 the official non-profit organization Atelier dell’Errore was founded, its mission being to nationally promote and the experience of the project. Since January 2013, thanks to private funding, they created Atelier dell’Errore in Museo for the Children’s Neuropsychiatric department of A.O. Papa Giovanni XXIII in Bergamo in collaboration with the Department of Culture and the E. Caffi Museum of Natural Sciences. In 2014 Giulia Zini (Atelier dell’Errore BIG) won the Euward 6 – Art in Disability, qudriennial international award organized by the Augustinum Stiftung and the Buchheim Museum (Munich). Since 2014 visual artist Giovanni De Francesco has been collaborating with Atelier dell’Errore on the artistic direction. In 2015 Atelier dell’Errore BIG was created, a school for the artistic specialization and professionalization of the children who, having grown up, would not be able to attend the artistic activities of Atelier dell’Errore in the Children’s Neuropsychiatric department. Since its creation Atelier dell’Errore BIG has been part of the Maramotti Collection of Reggio Emilia, one of the most important private contemporary art collections. The collaboration with the Maramotti Collection and Max Mara led to the creation of some important projects: Uomini come Cibo (2015), a site-specific installation that occupied the five floors of a historical building in the center of Milan during the 2015 EXPO reversing the theme with an extended archive of animals that chase and exclusively eat humans; The Guardian Animals + other invisible beings (2016), a site-specific installation for the Moretti Gallery in London which was part of the Frieze Art Fair London 2016; Atlante di Zoologia Profetica (2016), a volume published by Corraini Editions, edited by Marco Belpoliti; Open Studio (2017 e 2018), public opening of the space of Atelier dell’Errore BIG on the occasion of the Fotografia Europea festival.
Following the performance, a meeting will be held curated by Valeria Cantoni, member of the Artistic Committee of Triennale Teatro dell’Arte with Luca Santiago Mora, founder of Atelier dell’Errore, Gabi Scardi (curator, author and professor whose research is mainly focused on the latest contemporary artistic practices) and Leonardo Caffo (philosopher and essayist, mostly known for his theories on Animal Studies, the contemporary post-human and anti-speciesism).
A dialogue in the middle: prophetic animals, artistic talents immersed in a new light where the society of the “normaloids” only sees darkness, the extraordinary adventure of a man and his family who have decided to endorse life as a work of art.
