Mimi Mollica presents, 'Terra Nostra' at theprintspace Gallery
Thu 13 October 2016, 19:30 – 22:00 BST
We are very happy to be exhibiting Mimi Mollica's captivating new project, Terra Nostra at theprintspace Gallery between 13th-18th October. Terra Nostra is a long-term personal project on Sicily's unresolved co-existence with Mafia. A Sicilian himself, Mimi looked at the complexities of a region pervaded by lawlessness and scarred by illegitimate urban speculation. Cosa nostra infiltrated local administrations and served itself and the underworld by managing local politics, fix public tenders, and more often than not, ruled undisturbed. The resulting numbness of a large portion of civil society has contributed to Sicily’s characterising stillness, despite the heroic efforts of judges, journalists activists and even some politicians, fighting against the Mafia phenomenon. Between 2009 and 2016, Mimi made several trips to the island, looking at the architecture, people, routines and landscapes and captured the signs of the problematic entanglement with the mob and the legacy of Mafia imprint in Sicily.
Join us on Thursday 13th October for the Private View of Mimi's Terra Nostra exhibition and experience these awesome images yourself, have a drink, and have the chance to speak to Mimi about the project!
