Poli Antarctici Constitutio, 2019/20
Poli Antarctici Constitutio, 2019-20
silk and wool cloth
diameter 250 cm 

Antarctici Constitutio is a collective work, a silk emboridery with a diameter of 2.5 meters, reproducing the Antarctic pole as represented in the XII Book by Athanasius Kircher, In Mundus Subterraneus, dated 1664-65.
This embroidery has been made by a dozen women, in almost two years of work. None of them was a professional embroiderer: mostly friends and acquaintances of the artist who attended at her studio and dedicated a few hours of works, every now and then, as a break from their main working activities. A collective work, where stories of life of different countries, chatter, secrets and laughter took root in every stitch.
