Photo exhibition on Tibet
From 19 September 2008 to 05 October 2008
The title comes from a reflection of the author of the works, Paola Colussi, during a visit to Tibet in 2006 with a group of doctors and health workers from Vicenza who since 2005 have participated in a project organised by the association Ropka International.
Paola Colussi worked herself as a medical officer for the local health agency in Vicenza, following a programme of preventative medicine for infectious diseases. Through a voluntary association she undertook work in third world countries. This brought her to the Yushu province of Quinghai in Eastern Tibet. The decision to document the work in Tibet thus widened to encompass a wide scope: the photos subjects are monks, the living conditions, lifestyle and religiosity of the population. Also on show are pieces combining photo images with written texts which focus on the interrelationship between the human and divine dimension.
Accompanying the photos are serigraphs executed by Renato Giaretta who also participated in the mission in Tibet. A doctor in Vicenza, he is also the founder of Rokpa Italia and a member of the association Medici Vicentini per il Mondo. The serigraphs are based on a series of paintings done by him and take their inspiration from Tibet in all its aspects. All proceedings from the sale of these go to the association to further its cause. The exhibition is organised by the Councils Department of Culture in collaboration with the groups UnIsola per gli Altri, Medici Vicentini per il Mondo, and Rokpa Italia Onlus. Opening times:Thursday and Friday 3 7p.m.;Saturday and Sunday 10a.m. 12.30p.m. and 3p.m. to 7p.m. Entrance free
