A Dream In StonE on Sedition Art is live!

Updated: Sep 25, 2022



Francesca Fini: "In this digital art collection, you’ll be visiting an alien planet. In this planet all the dreams, all the paintings, all the statues, all the poems of humanity have been collected and stored by an alien intelligence, turning this planet into a sort of museum of humanity.

We could be in a time where our planet is not there anymore, where humanity is not there anymore or even in a time before humanity, before our planet. And these relics, these dreams, these paintings, these statues, these artworks from humanity have been wondering in deep space for a long time. When this alien intelligence found them floating among stars, among planets, among galaxies, they collected them and they stored them into this planet: the museum of humanity."


THE DROP


This digital art collection created by Francesca Fini consists of 8 video works inspired by a dystopian theme: the Earth after the disappearance of humanity.

Rocca Sinibalda Castle stands out as an intact and silent survivor still there to witness what we were and to open a chasm towards a future. Perhaps. Muziano's frescoes become a relic, carefully guarded within the womb of futuristic, self-sufficient and self-powered devices, which continue to function unaware of the surrounding emptiness and the disappearance of their creators.

The castle as an ark, with only fragments of past forms floating in the void: chaotic evidence of a disconnected past reality.

Shapeless but living fragments. Constantly absorbed in their search for new forms. Always unsuccessful and always in progress. They randomly assemble and disaggregate, producing nameless transitory entities and meaningless signs. To strive to last and somehow live, in search of previous identities nested in confused and unreliable memories. Transforming new identities for the dictionaries to come.


ARTISTIC PHILANTHROPY AND PATRONAGE

The proceeds from the sale of the works of the collection will contribute to the long-awaited restoration of the 1553 frescoes by Girolamo Muziano. A fraction of the proceeds will be used to remunerate the artist for his production residence at the Rocca Sinibalda Castle, which took place in July 2022.

AWARD FOR COLLECTORS

Collectors deserve a reward. The collection of the complete collection of 8 video art works entitles you to a two-day and one night stay in the Castle. A stimulating experience and not to be forgotten.

THE SEDITION PLATFORM

Founded in 2011 by gallery owner Harry Blain, founder of Blain | Southern, and Robert L. Norton, former CEO of Saatchi Online, Sedition is a platform created to collect, exchange, share and exhibit digital art created by the most significant contemporary artists. A pioneer in the dissemination and marketing of digital arts, the platform relies on its own internal marketplace and has recently also opened up to the NFT world.
