When it comes to planetary destruction, the angst many of us feel today is palpable. Environmental activism and calls to protect the planet have reached a near-fever pitch. In light of these developments, Gdańsk-born artist Agnieszka Brzeżańska imagines that the entire planet has been declared a national park – a delineated space that protects unique natural, cultural and recreational resources. James Cadle’s The Flag of Earth (1970) sets the tone for Brzeżańska’s participation at the Biennale Gherdëina 7. Designed by a rural farmer from Homer, Illinois, the flag consists of a black background with a yellow arc on the left illustrating the sun, a blue circle in the middle representing the earth and a small, white circle in the bottom right depicting the moon. She focuses on the cosmic order and the influence of planetary life on our existence, but also on the assertion found in New Age philosophy that the frequency of 528Hz, the Solfeggio-frequency, exercises a healing effect on the human DNA structure.

Quando si tratta di distruzione planetaria, l’angoscia che molti di noi sentono oggi è palpabile. L’attivismo ambientale e gli appelli a proteggere il pianeta hanno raggiunto un livello quasi febbrile. Alla luce di questi sviluppi, l’artista Agnieszka Brzeżańska immagina che l’intero pianeta sia stato dichiarato parco nazionale – uno spazio delimitato che protegge risorse naturali, culturali e ricreative uniche. La bandiera della Terra (1970) di James Cadle dà il tono della partecipazione di Brzeżańska alla Biennale Gherdëina 7. Disegnata da un contadino di Homer, Illinois, la bandiera è composta da uno sfondo nero con un arco giallo a sinistra che illustra il sole, un cerchio blu al centro che rappresenta la terra e un piccolo cerchio bianco in basso a destra che rappresenta la luna. Si concentra sull’ordine cosmico e sull’influenza della vita planetaria sulla nostra esistenza, ma anche sull’affermazione della filosofia New Age che la frequenza di 528Hz, la frequenza del Solfeggio, esercita un effetto curativo sulla struttura del DNA umano.

ringraziamo

Wenn es um die Zerstörung des Planeten geht, ist die Angst greifbar, die viele von uns heute empfinden. Mit seinen Aufrufen zum Schutz des Planeten hat der Umwelt-Aktivismus einen fast fieberhaften Höhepunkt erreicht. Angesichts dieser Entwicklung hat die in Gdańsk geborene Künstlerin Agnieszka Brzeżańska die Vorstellung entworfen, dass der gesamte Planet zum Nationalpark erklärt wird, um als umschlossener Raum, die einzigartige Natur-, Kultur- und Erholungsressourcen zu schützen. Das Werk „The Flag of Earth (1970)“ von James Cadles dient als Ausgangspunkt für die Teilnahme der Künstlerin an der Biennale Gherdëina 7. Die ursprünglich von einem Farmer aus Homer, Illinois, entworfene Flagge besteht aus einem schwarzen Hintergrund mit einem gelben Bogen auf der linken Seite, der die Sonne darstellt und einem blauen Kreis in der Mitte, der die Erde darstellt, sowie einem kleinen, weißen Kreis unten rechts, der den Mond darstellt. Mit ihrer Aneignung der Flagge referiert die Künstlerin auf die Einflussnahme der kosmischen Ordnung und des planetarischen Lebens auf unsere Existenz, wie beispielsweise auch die New-Age-Philosophie die Solfeggio-Frequenz etablierte, die mit einer Frequenz von 528 Hz, eine heilende Wirkung auf die menschliche DNA-Struktur ausübt.
