Sim Chi Yin at Fondazione Imago Mundi (05/04/2023)
From April 5 to September 17, 2023, Fondazione Imago Mundi presents the exhibition War is over! Peace has not yet begun at Gallerie delle Prigioni in Treviso. The exhibition, through the selection of artists’ works, invites us to look at the apparently concluded conflicts of our time and the past and to reflect on the profound difference between the mere closing or deadlock of the armed phase of a conflict and the establishment of a true condition of peace. When a war ends, a long period of time begins, which is usually far from media attention and which does not always results in real and lasting peace. Wars therefore end, but when does peace begin? Fondazione Imago Mundi proposes to the visitors of the Treviso exhibition to seek possible answers. In all the works, the drama of a time of peace that has begun, but has not been accomplished, fully resonates.
