Margherita Moscardini (Donoratico, Livorno, 1981) investigates the relations among natural, urban and social transformation processes belonging to specific geographies. Her practice focuses on long-term projects and large-scale works, often comprising drawings, written texts, sculptures and documentary videos.
The project called Inhabiting Without Belonging consists of a series of sculptures and paintings created imagining a Land that cannot be appropriated, such as High Sea portions, which are among the few areas of the planet not subject to the sovereignty of a state.
The artist considers such areas as resources for mankind: voids full of potential, reminding us of the non-appropriability of the planet of which each species is a guest, and highlighting the need for a paradigm shift that can perhaps be achieved starting from an idea of citizenship no longer based on the division of the planet into nation states and on territorial belonging, but on an urge for universal citizenship.
