Mécènes du Sud Aix-Marseille

Created in 2003 on the initiative of eight business leaders from Marseille and Aix, Mécènes du Sud brings together two groups of economic actors who share a cultural vision for their territories (Aix-Marseille and Montpellier-Sète-Béziers). For its members, culture is a wealth that is shared and nourishes a collective feeling. They wish to encourage, through their patronage, the emergence of artistic projects in the field of contemporary art. Mécènes du Sud therefore develops actions in the direction of the artists and its territories of establishment, where it defines itself as an interface of dialogue between artistic scene and economic world.

Giuliana Zefferi, guest of Mécènes du Sud, Art-O-Rama

Venue: Salon Art-O-Rama, Friche la Belle de Mai, 41 rue Jobin 13003 Marseille

Giuliana Zefferi is intrigued by the notion of uchronia, the proposition that history is actually histories because each historical episode could potentially have turned out differently. In the wake of speculative realism, she thus hypothesises that reality could be different from what we understand it to be and that what clearly did not happen nevertheless still exists.
Using an exploratory approach, she bases her work on research that touches on anthropology, prehistory, philosophy, literature, and musicology. She has developed a transdisciplinary practice that takes on graphic, sculptural, and video-graphic forms while striving to maintain the possibility of uniting her different works to generate and multiply new narratives. She imagines environments conceived as spaces of latency, that’s to say, spaces that are non-productive and favour observation and introspection. She combines tangible sculptural forms, furniture, texts, and videos to create hybrids.
