A tribute to both the power and the fragility of the sea, to the beauty of its constant change, to the grace and delicacy of its current equilibrium, Ephemeral Sea dedicates to the contemporary art scene a poetic exhibition of works that have drawn inspiration from the magnificence and the magic of the sea.

A contemporary exhibition with a mythological narrative punctuated by the works of Andrea Collesano, an artist who made known to the world his vision of the sea, characterized by the representation of large cetaceans, seahorses, crabs and jellyfish in a symbolic dialogue between them and the surrounding environment. A marine panorama of grace and harmony emerges from the ceramics of Edi Magi, where the artist recreates the richness and delicacy of its varieties of corals and shells. With the photographs of Kacper Kowalski Ephemeral Sea is also a warning about the consequences of the superficiality with which the logic of contemporary society matches with this primordial deity.

An exhortation to care about the marine environment to preserve its nuances which have seduced humanity for millennia, this exhibition also speaks a message of positive indifference from the Sea’s side, which seems to suggest to us that, despite the action of man, a new balance will, in any case, be re-established.

The project is curated by Vitalità Cultural Association with the partnership of Marina di Scarlino, the Barbara Paci Art Gallery Pietrasanta and the Velathri Art Gallery San Gimignano.
