About us. Tracey Snelling for The Human Safety Net

The spaces we live in talk about us, our stories, our experiences and our being part of a community. This is the thought behind ‘About Us’, the art project created by Tracey Snelling for The Home of The Human Safety Net, which complements the interactive exhibition ‘A World of Potential’ at the Procuratie Vecchie in Saint Mark square. It will be on display for visitors from next 13 April until 28 April 2025.

‘About Us. Tracey Snelling for The Human Safety Net’ was opened today with the Chairman of The Human Safety Net, Gabriele Galateri di Genola, the Vice Chairman of The Human Safety Net and Generali’s Group Chief Communications & Public Affairs Officer, Simone Bemporad, together with artist Tracey Snelling and curator Luca Massimo Barbero, who is proposing his second artistic project for the Art Studio, the space where art dialogues with social themes.

‘About Us’ takes the visitor through a surprising city teeming with life, where inhabited spaces contain stories, images and voices. A vibrant microcosm to explore, made up of people within their communities, which speaks of our strengths and how we can grow and make an impact.

The artworks created by Tracey Snelling offer new suggestions to the permanent exhibition ‘A World of Potential’, an interactive experience to explore and connect with our own potential, discovering the best qualities of ourselves and others, also through the stories of the beneficiaries, professionals and volunteers of The Human Safety Net.

The artworks represent urban conglomerates, made with craft materials and techniques and simple technological insertions, such as photos, sounds and lights.

Through them, Tracey Snelling addresses some of the major themes at the heart of The Human Safety Net’s mission, first and foremost the right of everyone to be able to improve their living conditions and those of their families and communities, even from a condition of vulnerability.

articulated, small scale sculptures, the artist captures the essence of everyday life, from the most banal moments to the most intimate narratives behind closed windows, recreating environments and buildings inspi red by places she has actually visited and investigated during her travels around the world.

The observer is thus stimulated to confront the challenges of society and, through sociological observations, to discover different cultures and experiences that unite human beings even behind apparent dis parities. The encounter with A World of Potential invites to an experience of coexistence through collective and tangible action in reality. Source by Tracey Snelling for Fondazione Generali.
