In collaboration with
For the summer of 2019 Simon Bart Gallery presents Poltu Quatu – Porto di Cultura, an annual event of art for selected sites in the beautiful village of Poltu Quatu, hidden treasure of the Costa Smeralda. From this year the village hosts artworks by internationally renowned artists among its avenues, in the main passages and close to the elegant fjord that distinguishes it, thus combining art and landscape in a mix of wonder and authenticity.
Beatriz Gerenstein sculpts her anthropomorphic figures following the line of emotions. Gerenstein’s sculptures are a journey into the feelings of the human being, through her works she describe, in fact, the founding values of humanity and of a possible civil society. In a world full of violence, selfishness and greed, the Argentine artist chooses to illustrate the best aspect of humanity, where positive energies can contribute to a real change.
The Third Partner, installed in the main square of Poltu Quatu, already presented at the 16th Venice Biennale of Architecture, is the sculpture that best expresses the socio-anthropological reflections of the artist who in this work reconstructs the idea of harmony, balance to rediscover through feelings like altruism, sense of cohesion, respect for nature and for each other.
Poltu Quatu – Porto di Cultura is based on the idea of an art without borders, a free and universal art, a project that aims at diffuse and give value to contemporary artistic culture.
