Yesterday/Today/Tomorrow: Traceability is Credibility is a conceptual participative work (duration: 18 months minimum), curated and ideated by Bryan Mc Cormack, on view at Fondazione Giorgio Cini as a Collateral Event of the 57th Venice Biennale.
The work aims to show the European refugee crisis giving voice to whom who don’t have one, mainly children and illiterate persons, through images. Thousands people from over 30 nationalities have been invited to create three drawings representing their life before (Yesterday), now (Today) and in the future they imagine (Tomorrow).
Using drawings as starting point, the project contains both an installation/performance and a social media voice.
The final result of this mapping is a visual memory of an exodus.
With this process hundreds of refugees in centers, camps, squats and shelters across Europe participate in creating their contemporary culture, leaving a traceability that means credibility, making exist people otherwise disappearing and giving voice to everyone because every single human with his story counts.
