During her stay in Sudan, Camilla Ferrari chose to visually narrate the enchanted beauty of this country, suspended between reality and dream, between presence and absence.
The videos and photographs on display interpret the variety of the territory and provide atmospheres in which to immerse: the lush green and deep blue of the Nile, the vast deserts, the infinite stretch of sand and sky that seem to melt into a single oniric vision, but also places of passage, truck restaurants, petrol stations, chai houses and markets, all of which become meeting points, places to listen and meditate along the way. The exhibition invites the public to discover the beauty and complexity of Sudan through the eyes of the artist, whose images move between poetry and reality, creating an exciting journey through fascinating places and an extraordinary history.
However, looking at these images in the light of today’s events draws attention to an entire country with a dramatically uncertain future. After the coup d’état of 2019, the hope for a democracy began to falter until the civil war began in April 2023. These events do not just affect one population, but every human being with rights. Even today, conflicts annihilate and wipe out entire cultures.
During the exhibition, you can buy a print from a selection of the displayed artworks, and all proceeds will go to Friends of Sudan, an association at the forefront of aiding conflict victims since 2012, supporting the Sudanese people in healthcare, education, culture, and the environment.
