Together with the City of Naples Anne de Carbuccia and the Time Shrine Foundation are presenting One • One Planet One Future Naples. The artist Anne de Carbuccia has traveled to the places on our planet that are the most beautiful, remote and at risk in order to document through her art what we have, what we have already lost and what we stand to lose. The exhibition is dedicated to the salvation of our one and only planet and is a profound appeal to all of us.
Anne de Carbuccia’s photographs face the threats that man is creating for the planet using the artistic theme of Vanitas. With an hourglass, a skull and other objects found on site, Anne creates installations in terrestrial or marine landscapes that are full of environmental meanings. The artist calls these installations Timeshrines, alluding to the fact that even the ephemeral nature of her installations become part of a permanent photographic collection.
The appearance of the Timeshrine in the image invites us to reflect on the beauty and fragility of our planet and is intended to inspire us to make the changes necessary for its salvation. Anne revisits the concept of the classic “still life” to portray “living nature”.

One • One Planet One Future will be held in the medieval Castel dell’Ovo and will be open to the public from 23rd June until 30th September 2018. The images deal with the key themes of the One Planet One Future project such as water, plastics, animals and cultures at risk.
In the spring of 2018 Anne de Carbuccia created a Timeshrine in the charred forest surrounding Vesuvius. The Vesuvius National Park covers more than 8,000 hectares of land and woods surrounding the famous volcano. In July of 2017, a fire devastated the park: for two weeks it raged over 2,000 hectares of forest, destroying half of the trees and seriously damaging others.
The Neapolitan journalist Januaria Piromallo put Anne de Carbuccia in contact with Vesuvius Mountain Bike and MTB Vesuvius, two local mountain biker associations who have always used the park to ride and who have created a network of volunteers to protect the park and keep it clean.
As protectors of the earth they led Anne through the devastation of “their mountain” and helped her create a Timeshrine to artistically document the environmental disaster. The image and some shots of their collaboration will be exhibited in the Castel dell’Ovo Exhibition.
