logo we love science e immagini artisti

On the occasion of the celebration of the Day of Italian Research in the World, the traveling exhibition "WE LOVE SCIENCE" was inaugurated at the Italian Cultural Institute in Krakow. This is a project of interaction between art and science by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation aimed specifically at promoting and enhancing the dialogue between artistic and technological research. The traveling exhibition brings together eight original artworks and audiovisual content created by eight Italian artists inspired by the activities of as many Italian research laboratories including Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste.

The artist Irene Fenara, following an artistic residency at our research center displays 'Supervision' which represents a close-up and abstracted view of a light source, in which the subject of the image is observed from the inside, which thus becomes invisible.

In this way, the subject is no longer just a filmed object, but is transformed into the light itself. In addition to Elettra, the other research centers involved are: Astronomical Observatory of the National Institute of Astrophysics in the Canary Islands, National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology at Vesuvius, National Institute for the Study of Experimental Naval Architecture in Rome, Sos Enattos Mine in Sardinia, Gran Sasso National Laboratories, National Institute of Astrophysics in Cagliari, and the Italian Space Agency (Matera headquarters).

The exhibition opened in Krakow, but will then be in Warsaw, Pristina and then it will continue its international tour with the support of the Italian Embassies, Consulates and Italian Cultural Institutes network.
