Jim C. Nedd – ‘To Your Scattered Bodies Go

For every edition, Terraforma invites a guest artist to interpret the festival’s visual identity. For 2023, the Milan based artist Jim C. Nedd developed the edition’ imagery. It is the first time that an artist brings the photographic language into Terraforma’s history. The series is a photographic journey through the details of human bodies merging from the dense mud of the Volcano El Totumo in north Colombia. Taking cue from folk mythology as the Mud Parade in Rio de Janeiro and post-modern festivals such as Re Nudo or Woodstock, when at the apex of collective euphoria people started to jump and to dance into the mud, Nedd’s work focuses on the act of plunging into muddy waters as a moment of emotional and physical release.
