The first edition of Transhumance, an exhibition series for the public space curated by Izabela Anna Moren, opens with the double project People of Tamba and Senegal/Sicily. The photographic project People of Tamba by Giovanni Hänninen, comprised of 200 pictures, creates a typological catalogue of the society of Tambacounda, the largest city in the Senegal’s most internal and rural region and the point of departure for the majority of Senegalese migration. The documentary series Senegal/Sicily created by Alberto Amoretti and Giovanni Hänninen speaks sincerely about the risks of travel and the lives of those who have arrived in Europe. Together, the two projects create a dialogue between the life before and after migration.
Transhumance is an exhibition series hosting four art projects within a year. Installed outdoors in the historic center and peripheries of Palermo, Transhumance promotes meetings between city, inhabitants and art outside of the protected walls of museums or galleries. The project is co-developed with Scuola Politica Gibel and its first edition produced in collaboration with Transeuropa Festival.
On Saturday, 9 November 2019, Giovanni Hänninen and Alberto Amoretti will present People of Tamba during a guided walk through the historic center of Palermo, followed by a screening of Senegal/Sicily at sunset.
