Inner Gods is an independent and unique art book that will be printed in 1000 copies, showcasing a new series of drawings by Allegra Betti van der Noot, the Milanese artist who lives and works between Italy and Greece. Here you can book your signed copy on presale.
The volume shows 84 works made on the spot during some of the artist’s journeys on board of her van, Gianni. This art book has a diary quality to it. In fact as you leaf through its pages, you are, in essence, reconstructing the long voyage Allegra and Gianni shared. A journey that was as much physical as it was spiritual. The inner voyage suggests the visionary discovery of ancestral cultures while the constant contact with nature and the wanderlust of exploring life are present in this special collection of Allegra’s artwork. The Art book will also feature a paper by Giovanni Bove, a semiotician interested in visual communication, translated in English, Italian and Greek.
Inner Gods will be printed on 100% recycled paper made in Italy as the project is striving to achieve zero carbon foot print.
This project is completed by xylographic, linographic and monotype prints, made during the journey in a limited edition, signed postcards, exclusive prints and eco friendly T-Shirts hand embroidered in Italy from Melide.
5% of income will be donated to Sea Bins and used in any tiny harbors in western Greece and Crete. Follow the impact of this donation through social media. Pictures and videos will be uploaded to document the effect of the donation.
Risks and challenges
The risk is to stop traveling for Gianni as he's getting old and he's in need of repair. If Gianni cannot travel, then Allegra cannot get inspired by her experiences on the move.
But we highly believe in this project, we've been working hard on it for the last six months, and we believe You will like it too!
