A narrative trilogy of the words

The show allows the viewer to reconsider the mundane and imagine the infinite possibilities of association between words and images. The work becomes a process to follow instead of a series of intuitive decisions that need to be made. We organize and categorize information, meticulously noting everyday situations, interactions among other people, and my relationship to the world around us. We consider art a form of mapmaking, a depiction of space illustrating relationships between different components. We exist because we tell us. Through the interpretation of some words on alphabetic order (look list down) we ask artists to represent them by images as postcard. As a dadaist game and from the creativity of each artist, will came out a fantastic visual dictionary of the human condition of the XXI century. Alls medium are welcome.

ARTICLE 7. SUGGESTIONS SHIPPING PROCEDURE AND CUSTOMS
FOR ARTISTS OUTSIDE EUROPE COMMUNITY
SHAPE CONDITION WORKS AND SIZES . We advise the artists to send the artworks without glass.
To save on costs of transport, the gallery suggests that you send any material or artworks in the simplest
way. Taking into account the different regulations and administrations of the various countries, we
recommend that you send the packaging in the simplest way possible.
ITALIAN CUSTOMS – Please ensure that you write clearly the destination and the origin of the package,
and write in capital letters on the label “definitive importation in Italy”. When you’re ready to send
package, please advice us on weight and measure of package by email. We have to fill paperworks for
Italian customs.
DECLARATION – In addition, please do not attach to the parcel and written document which will
compromise customs and excise (exposition, sales, technical data, prices, artwork, pictures, cheques
etc). This will avoid any importation of the artwork in the country of destination, and will avoid any
expenses with customs and excise. The gallery advises the artist on this matter for an easier transition,
however, there is no obligation for the artist to follow this advice, therefore leaving the artist to make the
decisions independently.
INSURANCE OR TAX CUSTOMS – Sending the artwork via private delivery service or mail services,
and provide it with insurance, will imply additional fees that the artist must take full responsibility of.
xxxxx xxxxxx xxxxxGallery will not take charge for any instance of these extra costs. Please, provide to
pay tax customs (bill and duty) on shipping go/return.
VALUE FOR CUSTOMS – The costs on tax customs change from country to country. So, we
raccomande to put a small value so tax custom will be not expansive. Example as price 200 $ USD max.
This is not the value of work, but just the customs value.
SHIPPING BACK – If the work result not sold until the end of the show, it will be sent back (together
catalogs)by own courier. The gallery will ask a estimate price to courier and will inform you on costs for
back shipping at the end of exhibition. Bearing in mind the diversities of cases, the gallery will arrange an agreement for each case which will include quotations for charges with own couriers. The Organisation
will take due care of the works presented but cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss during
shipping.
SHIPPING BY FEDEX EXPRESS: If you use Fedex write your
code_______________________________________________________________________________
If you doesn’t use Fedex, on return of the artworks, or promotional materials, can be contracted to the
