In the prison chambers called Sala delle Carceri in the medieval Castel dell’Ovo in Naples, the exhibition “One. One Planet One Future Napoli” by French-American environmental artist Anne de Carbuccia, dedicated to the preservation of our planet. The artist has travelled to the most remote, endangered and beautiful places on Earth to document what we have, what we have already lost and what we may lose.
The photographs confront human-caused threats to the planet through the ingenious use of vanitas art which features the hourglass and the skull as symbols of time and of the futility of worldly pursuits. The images deal with the key themes of the project One Planet One Future: water, trash, endangered species and cultures. After her studies in Anthropology and Art History at Columbia University she traveled for years to the most extreme places on earth creating and photographing temporary installations (TimeShrines) that document and preserve the memory of endangered places, animals and cultures. She established the Time Shrine Foundation and the project One Planet One Future to raise awareness on human-caused threats to the environment and the planet.
