- Novembre 24, 2015
25 November is the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Milan Municipality along with the Giorgio Pardi Foundation and the association CRAMUM decided to face this problematic subject, supporting the VÌOLA Project. This project is a solo exhibition of Andi Kacziba, curated by Sabino Maria Frassà with the Patronage of the Hungarian Balassi Academy, Rome.
The exhibition is taking place in the Studio Museum Francesco Messina, at 4/a Via San Sisto, Milan (Via Torino) from 10th to 20th December. It is about the reaction and the survival of women subjected to psycho-physical violence. For Andi Kacziba – ex model and ex photographer of Hungarian origins who has been living in Italy for years – our society is violent also in the way it represent itself and women. Mankind has evolved, men think they are forever young, but the biological and reproductive time is still the same as before. A woman who suffers violence often submits, modifies and nearly annihilates herself. “Nearly is the key word and the turning point for VÌOLA” – as Sabino Maria Frassà, the curator of the exhibition underlines – “Man can rise and develop from the inevitable violence and the unalienable sorrow”.
For Andi Kacziba the generative element of human existence is never Violence, on the contrary it is the strength not to bend, the strength to react and be different.”
