CCA Kitakyushu presents a new work by Sara Benaglia as CCA 20+ Project.

“Pink Rust re-crosses some names of the female gender, elements of a language essential to the (re)production of the “same story”. We are not different, so. And that “not” separates us to measure ourselves. Disjointed. Similar, if you like. Pink Rust abstracts by staging bodies already coded. “

“The words with which we would define these bodies are figurative expressions that defend habits, in which linguistic manifestations act in a sort of second nature; but who knows if nature is not only the first of habits? And is it not a habit, the one for which we distinguish nature from culture? Body systems inherit a collective memory from all predecessors of the same species. A potential memory, which does not disappear and has no filter.”

“Pink Rust highlights a certain resonance that crosses bodies – that do not refuse motherhood, exercising a consensus, scientifically guaranteed by the invention of maternal instinct. The fact acts for the production of human capital. Closed and open, without excluding themselves, in order to produce an exact word, they should keep their distance. Clearly move away from each other. Distant. It’s not good to be equal, to mimic what you approach. Because by assimilating one model after another, you change face, form, language according to who dominates you. ” – Sara Benaglia

CCA Kitakyushu started 20+ project last year.

20+ presents emerging artists with the opportunity to experiment with new ideas connected to significant challenges in their career.

 Since its foundation in 1997, CCA has been working closely with artists and practitioners from various fields including architecture and science. One of the main activities has always been the program for young artists, such as Fellowship Program started in 2015.

 20+ stands for the fact that the program’s first year 2018 is the 21st year of CCA.

20+ indicates an exploration of a new perspective to be continued in the ever-changing art world.
