First Cultureland Project presented: Sunday 19 March
You are cordially invited to see and listen to the work of Claudio Beorchia:
i Guardiani del Polder, Frammenti di una mitologia affiorata
"During my time here in the polder I did an astonishing discovery: I found an old document written in an unknown ancient ideographic alphabet. In these last days I deciphered it. The document is short, just some lines for every character, written in some kind of poetry. It tells the legends of mythological figures that inhabit and protect the polder".

In the polder, reporting for the southern gods
"The project wants to be a reflection about the water landscape of polders, a landscape extremely different from the one from which I come. The reflection is developed through a fiction: I imagine to be a hypothetical reporter sent by the Southern gods to discover this territory created by man."
