AOSTABELLOSGUARDO is a project about an artistic research that questions, to overcome it, the dualism life/death on the merit of the public hospital Beauregard of Aosta which hosts, at a distance of one floor from the other, two special departments, namely the Hospice, Residential Structure of Palliative Care, and Obstetrics and Gynecology, Complex Structure of Obstetrics and Gynecology: at a distance of a few meters a cycle opens and closes, whatever this may ever means. The experience of life is in itself confusing and generates unexpected forms of meaning: it’s still the man who sooner or later defines. In this sense AOSTABELLOSGUARDO helps us to define once more the perimeter of our thinking towards themes such as palliative care, pain therapy, up to those always actuals such life end and therapeutic self-determination, but also those of pregnancy, abortion, birth, assisted procreation, till the themes related to language and memory. The research dedicated to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology takes the name of HYSTEROS, in the greek uterus, and together with the PALLIUM project, from the latin mantle, goes to compose the work.
