Vincenzo Fagnani and Tana Santos are two visual artists currently in Residence at Y, working on a large project titled “The Sea After Crisis: Reality is amorphous. Ethics is graphics”.

Their work focuses on the relationship between symbols, ethics and public spaces.

The Sea After Crisis is a project about the dynamics of moral structures and the role of graphics in society. It is a long trip across etymology and symbology narrated through visual paradoxes, poster campaigns and installations realised in three emblematic cities: Detroit (United States), Buenos Aires (Argentina) and Athens (Greece).

From Pre-Hellenic cultures until today humans have been determining a number of ethical geometries that survived and strengthened over the most significant epochal changes, above all the accession of monotheism. Those geometries also represent the basis of a social model which imposed its will worldwide over the past centuries.
