Digital Comp(h)ost, curated by Marianna Vecellio, is the virtual library of the Castello di Rivoli which hosts philosophical reflections, conversations, debates and lessons on the theme of coexistence and metamorphosis offering new perspectives for analyzing today’s world.
With its references to the concepts of soil, waste and fertility, Digital Comp(h)ost is the place of continuous mixing and transformation between the states of matter, the place of new alliances between living forms, in which similar and different are present in a condition of vitality and growth.
Digital Comphost is a digital iteration of the project COMP(H)OST is a project produced by a.titolo, NERO and the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, in collaboration with the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam, and is supported by Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo as part of the call “ORA! Produzioni di Cultura Contemporanea”, with the contribution of Regione Piemonte, the hospitality of Duparc Contemporary Suites and the collaboration of Film Commission Torino Piemonte. Comp(h)ost is based on an idea from Marianna Vecellio and Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, and it is curated by Francesca Comisso and Luisa Perlo for a.titolo, Marianna Vecellio for the Castello di Rivoli, Lorenzo Gigotti, Valerio Mannucci and Valerio Mattioli for NERO.
Artists, musicians, composers, scholars and writers will alternate on the Castello di Rivoli Youtube Channel, every Tuesday until 14 July. This will create an opportunity to experiment with innovative formats and address the issues of hybridization and mixture from a technological, biological and social point of view, exploring new forms of public interaction and exchange.
