“VARIANTE INDIANA” An Exhibition of 30 photographs by Aurovilian, Marco Saroldi on show

“VARIANTE INDIANA” wants to point a finger at the effects of how social distancing has influenced our way of relating to one another. It aims to imagine how people feel about social distancing in their different activities while they meet, work, play, and live together. 

Social distancing creates empty gaps in the fabric of humanity, and forces people to separate, withholding the feeling of unity.

  • When: 10am – 6pm, Tuesday to Saturday, 26th June to 10th July
  • Opening : 4 to 6.30pm, Friday 25th June 2021
  • Where: Porta Palazzo, Fotografia Km0 Gallery, Torino – Italy

The pictures were taken in Auroville, an international town set up in 1968 in southern India, inspired by the ideas of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. 

“The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity” (Mirra Alfassa, 1967).

Auroville  is today a community of 3500 residents, who went to live there from more than 100 different countries.

All around the world, as well as in Auroville, we have to find a way to overcome this and restart a new way of social proximity.
