PLEXUS INTERNATIONAL METR'ART GLOBAL DIGITAL ART OPEN CALL: BRING YOUR WINGS TO FLY FREELY TOGETHER
A change of perception and awareness about oneself, our living in this world, and the unsustainable state of our planet Earth
304 Artists, from all 5 continents, gave life to the Plexus Metr’ART with 719 digital works, reproduced in a photocopy format A3, for a total length of 287.60 meters, to December 10, 2017.
The construction of the Metr’ART began in 2004 in Dakar, on the occasion of the DakOff of the Biennial of Contemporary African Art, with the initial contribution of 93 digital works of 71 artists, from various parts of the world, to the traveling project of Plexus International "Erosions and Renaissance shows".
Plexus Metr'ART is a historical witness of digital works that reproduced in photocopies have become original artfacts in their travelling between Dakar-Ballarat (Australia)–Lecce (Italy)–Rome-New York-Barcelona-Dakar-Rio de Jainero, Jerusalem, Cairns (Australia)-Cagliari (Sardinia) and Rome. Original works, which in their historical journey, 2004-2016, aboard the Plexus Metr'Art, have transformed an assemblage of “poor photocopies” into a work of art.
Plexus Metr' ART is a multi-prospective compression of visual contributions of disparate nature and provenance, to measure symbolically all forms of growing erosion in the planet, starting from the sea erosion of Door of the No Return of the House of the slaves of Goree, Dakar, as a symbol of the erosion of the historical memory of Humankind and of our natural and cultural heritage. Plexus International is an adventure of artists in the first person. It born in New York in 1982 and, for more than 30 years, has played a seminal role in numerous experimental events of arts & science and technology around the world, with the participation of thousands of artists. All digital contributions will be exhibited in the Plexus Virtual Gallery http://www.plexusinternational.org and united together in the Metr’ART as a collective immaginary work of art.
