THE NEW CIVILISATION
In a state of emergency By Marco Nereo Rotelli
Creating a network of the small islands of the world is the work launched by Fondazione Mare Nostrum, who promoted the "Poetry Island" project at the 2005 Biennale. With Mercury House One - Save the Poetry, it has come up with a work that is poised between art and technology, a work of high poetic value, in a contemporariness in which the values of identity seem to be lost. In the state of global uncertainty which now touches every man, it is up to art to found again "the creativity of the individual who creates" (Harald Szeemann) and open up to unexpected interferences, embodying distant cultures, from the Isle of Failaka to Easter Island, realities that act almost as a warning to the men of our age. MercuryHouseOne is a habitable unit designed as a mobile lounge, created respecting ecological issues. The exterior shell is made from the finest Carrara marble. The marble is backlit at night, enhancing the form and creating special attention for evening events. MHO is "designed to lavish emotions and infuse an optimistic view of the future"(Gualtiero Vanelli), it is an architecture, which integrate functional and aesthetical considerations, ingeniously designed by Architecture and Vision and created by GVM, it is capable of "making one feel uncomfortable" with the purity of its form and "comfortable" with its contents, which are dictated by the defence of knowledge, sculpted on to the marble of its walls. So we have to look at the MHO as at a future cave, a guardian of identities. This reminds us of Kraussĺ warning on the loss of the ancient house of language but the foreboding, which globalisation has turned into something more real then ever, unveils a new scenario: the MHO is the new house of language. Art leaves behind its challenging role and replaces it with the composition, which man "needs". In this respect, the MHO is a "concept-place", a technological cave for the man of the future, his knowledge in its DNA. Save the Poetry, Marco Nereo Rotelliĺs installation, carries ancient languages, from the mnemonic one of the Rongo Rongo tablets of Easter Island to those of the nomadic poems of the desert. The fonts used to display these words recall things of the past, the present and the future; the art of writing is part of everyone's visual culture. The Mercury House One is therefore a place of thought that contains an asset to be guarded, such as poetry, not just the metaphor of all the endangered languages, but a veritable ethical assumption. This is how one should look at the "Night of light" event, which.
