CCA Edition 2017
The artist selected for the 2017 edition of the project is Susan A. Point, the most important exponent of Coast Salish Art, the artistic expression of natives from the western coast of Canada that was forgotten as a result of colonialism. Labels reproducing her work embellish a selection of Costasera 2000.
The ancestral link with the Coast Salish population is the inspiration for her work entitled "Traditional legacy", which depicts traditional subjects, such as the Fraser River, which runs through Coast Salish land and is populated with salmon, octopuses and kingfishers, using pictograms that range from the abstract to the figurative.
The recurring motif of a circle, the symbol of life, evokes the sun, the moon, salmon eggs (the Coast Salish population is known as the Salmon People) and grapes as well in a perfect link that has led the artist on her life’s journey and brought her to Valpolicella to discover the products of the territory.
