Vessel is glad to announce the arrival in Puglia of the artist Elena Cologni for the project Radio Materiality.

The intervention of the artist in the context of Puglia will be articulated in a series of conversation facilitated by the dimension of traditional game (la trottola) between herself and a group of mothers from Bari in order to share with them the emotional and psycho-geographical condition of motherhood.

The meetings will instigate a reflection on the sociological concept of trust ad on the social and urban dimension that being mother implies.


Radio Materiality is part of Materiality. Materiality is a two-years European project that is being developed in collaboration between Wyspa in Gdańsk, Vessel in Bari, Instituto Politécnico de Tomar and Kibla in Maribor. It explores the visual, sensual, transformative, political and scientific aspects of materials.
