Howlers crew urban art projects for urban art festival ”Without Frontiers, Lunetta a Colori”, Mantova, Italy, 2020. Their latest artwork “Alice in Borderland” explores the concept of paradox by taking into consideration Gilles Deleuze’s analysis of the book Alice in Wonderland by Luois Carrol.
On one hand the iconography points out Carroll’s contradictory use of fusion and scission to represent spatial and temporal identities. O the other hand the art piece focuses on Deleuze’s thesis of the paradox as a mean to detroy common sense by putting at stake both its fixed identity and the obviousness of its own definition.
By overcoming the concept of limit, Alice symbolises an identity, which continuously constructs and deconstructs in a process of borderless metamorphosis. Additionaly Alice in Borderland has the purpose to highlight the enigmatic relationship between Alice and her surroundings.
Each natural element, the character included, assume a specific meaning when analysed singularly. However the complex of all elements together give birth to a unique new concept that go beyond the meaning of designation.
Howlers Crew is an artistic collective born in italy in 2015 by Francesca Melina and Gioele Bertin. With big sized mural paintings the crew has the purpose to explore the intrinsic relationship connecting humans and their territories/environment. The continuous artistic research to investigate new techniques and styles has led the two artists to develop skills in many visual fields from graphic to interior design.
