METAmorphosis movement, launched by visual artists and educators G. Priola and Elisa Sassera in June of 2018, Istanbul, is an international network of like-minded European and International artists and people in between, that share the same aspirations to transform and redefine art in the aftermath of our disconnected Society.
The notion of the term “METAmorphosis” indicates a zone of shelter, re-birth/ development and pure possibilities.
The members embarked on a new beginning in the historical and artistic context on the principles of art in Istanbul, they are striving to “banish any trace of personal style” and instead are wishing to bring to light elements of the “non-art world” into the artwork.
Their undertaking is concentrating on “METAmorphosis” as first Artist Call/ practice-led Project for the international artist community, in collaboration with musicians, film producers, food lovers, university researchers from the Umanities, Architecture and Sciences and people in between.
Their approach is guided and driven by the essence of “universal powers and connection” that in turn would become the alternative for the freedom and free expression of the individual.
METAmorphosis strives to be pro-active in instigating dialogue, connection and critical thinking through a series of Art projects and Art Residencies and hopes to raise awareness of and support for the activities of Art in our society.
