Kinship of Rivers going to the Po River, Bologna, with 3000 river flags…then the Everest. Thank you all for your help. I’ll keep you updated with blogs and pictures.

Kinship, curated by Patti Campani debuts Saturday May5 2016 at the DuePuntiLab exhibition space in Bologna.

Kinship is a term that has no parallel in Italian: it indicates a complex network of relations which range from common bloodlines, to an extended social belonging, to the sense of one’s own roots, even to a deep and personal affinity with other beings, cultures.


For this reason it does not have a collective character, but rather that of a single project realized by various artists, by a plurality of voices united in a single body.


Kinship is dedicated to the River, to its flow, its incessant becoming, which, throughout the mutations and the complexity of its course, remains nothing other than itself. We all belong to this phenomenon: to a unique and vital source which draws us together, while allowing us to differentiate ourselves in a thousand different rivulets, and to flow while appropriating diverse experiences, even to lose ourselves and re-forge ourselves throughout the single surge towards the headwaters, which guide us towards a vaster totality to which we all ultimately belong.


The artists in Kinship who narrate this epic experience belong to different artistic contexts and territories: poetry, sculpture, architecture, photography, and video, all of which combine throughout the exhibition’s narrative course, to form a single current of intertwining creativity.
Guy Lydster, sculptor, Paolo Quartapelle, photographer, Simone Garagnani Alessandro Menegoli e Lucia Trebbi cofounders of DuePuntiLab, Wang Ping, poet.


For the occasion the sonnets of Wang Ping have been translated for the first time in to Italian. The printing of the booklet was a donation from the Department of Modern Languages, University of Bologna- Prof.ssa.Lilla Maria Crisafulli; the translations of the texts are edited by Vanessa Montesi and Margherita Orsi.


The evening of the opening will also be enhanced by the gracious presence of the poetess herself, Wang Ping. She will honour listeners and spectators with a reading from her Crown Sonnets, and she will willingly engage visitors to participate in her worldwide project “The Kinship Of Rivers” . The public will also be able to send out a prayer/thought in the form of a tiny flag towards the next leg of her voyage: Mount Everest.

Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Wang Ping at TAAC Gallery

‘International Flare’ best describes the activities at the Gallery Main/Trinidad Area Arts Counsel. Along with a budding art community, the literary scene within this historic community has grown exponentially and nothing could emphasis this more than a visit by the ever popular award winning laureate Wang Ping.

 

Through the concerted efforts of the literary community and the Trinidad State Junior College, most notably, educator John Casuqarelli Wang Ping chose to grace this community with both a book signing of her epic piece ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ and do some readings from her book. On a side bar, her masterpiece earned acclaim as a feature film of historic significance in addressing the atrocious treatment of Chinese immigrants in the land of freedom, milk and honey, (USA).

Open, warm and vivacious yet accented with subtle Asian mystery and timeless allure, that is ‘The Wang Ping Experience’. Whisked away to a place far removed from time and space, sometimes with joy and sometimes with poignancy and pain. In a culinary sense Wang Ping titillates and deliciates the literary palate of all who are graced with the sound of this enchantress’ voice. Mesmerizing would be an understatement and thought provoking would only skim the surface…

 

Was the audience whisked to a place of joy or dark forebode in a repartee of stark reality? Well, I was pretty frigging happy since Wang Ping was on the other side of my camera lens and I was in Downtown Trinidad Colorado. No rush hour traffic on the Hollywood Freeway for me eh. It was a two day adventure with a world class poet and humanitarian, Wang Ping. With the splendor of the majestic Rocky Mountains as her backdrop it does not get any better than that.

If you are aware of Wang Ping you are also aware she is never idle and everything has purpose and direction. In coming to Trinidad she also made the community aware of her on going *’Kinship of Rivers’ project uniting communities in kinship and harmony along the Mississippi & Yangtze Rivers. From what I observed it’s an extension of an olive branch in uniting people, not governments or politics. Just unity among the children of planet earth

Within this Kinship of Rivers project are these colorful flags molded after Tibetanwang5 Prayer Flags. For the most part they hold the same significance but with a dash of kinship for those who live along these powerful earth bound arteries of life and their tributaries. The flags where written with the hopes and dreams of the people then the thoughts symbolically released. All with the expressed blessing from His Holiness the Dali Lama.

Throughout the pomp and circumstance of Wang Ping’s whirlwind visit to Trinidad,

Beauty and the Beast

Colorado there was a theme that resonated during her entire stay and it was simply a message of love, tolerance and good will. What I saw through my camera lens was poetry in motion as this award winning woman blended and interacted with fans as if they were the oldest of friends and it was genuine. You could feel the magic as she made everyone she met feel uniquely special. You should have been there, oh well.

idle no more

 

Fostered Hope

In times of old when we were free, and travelled with a subtle breeze.

This land of birth had no disease, and all we felt was life at ease.

Bison roamed a million fold, and in our way, that was our gold.

He served us well, both young and old, his all of wealth, from stories told.

Our wine of choice was of a spring, we shared our life with everything.

 

Oh Mother Earth and Father Sky, please save us from this white man’s Lie.

His ways of hate and words of quick have left our people sad and sick.

He’s killed the beasts that ruled the plains, and gave us booze that rot our brains.

Those words of quick have hurt our sight, and pushed us to this time of plight.

Our children walk in endless night, fore they have lost the path of light.

 

Make well of us and land gone strange, and bring back life to the barren range.

Return the water that we may drink, and clear our minds so we may think.

Return the spark of life’s sweet fire, and give new hope for those we sire.

Make good this land that has gone strange, and foster forth this Time of Change.
