Residency and public return event Oppy de Bernardo
During his residency at Casa degli Artisti, De Bernardo will create a mosaic made of chocolate tiles of different shades of color that reproduces the wedding photo of his parents, Neapolitan immigrants in Switzerland. The work wants to be a “contamination” and an “integration” of Italian immigrants, in this case the artist’s parents, in Switzerland, where the clichés have always been chocolate, watches and precision. To underline the exchange between the two countries, the 3500 pieces of chocolate will be produced by the pastry shop Sandro Pinotti of Ascona.
Once completed, the work “Souvenir” will be made available to the public, from children to adults who can take the chocolate pieces of the mosaic and eat them.
Residence May 27 – 28, 9:30 a.m. – 9:30 p.m.
“Souvenir” Public Return Event May 29, 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
