CHE COSA TI ASPETTI DALL’ARTE DI OGGI?

PERCHE’ VAI A VEDERE UNA MOSTRA?

COSA TI SPINGE AD ANDARE A UN EVENTO CONSIDERATO D’ARTE ?

COSA TI ASPETT DI TROVARE A UNA MOSTRA D’ARTE?

LE BELLE IMMAGINI SONO SEMPRE E SOLO NEGLI AMBITI CHE DEPUTIAMO ALL’ARTE ?

IN UNA MOSTRA TROVI MAI DELLE RISPOSTE ?

IN UNA MOSTRA TROVI MAI DELLE DOMANDE ?

COSA SAI ANCORA OSSERVARE ?

LA POSSIBILITA’ DI VEDERE TUTTO  E  VEDERE  SEMPRE TI PERMETTE REALMENTE DI VEDERE?

PENSI CHE NELLA SOCIETA’ DELL’OPINIONISMO, L’ARTISTA HA DELLE RESPONSABILITA’ CONCRETE O SOLO MEDIATICHE?

RIDURRE IL MONDO REALE A UN’IMMAGINE  FA PARTE DEL LINGUAGGIO DELL’ARTE OGGI ?

White Out

The excess of Visibilty which will blind the Vision.

The world as we know it is going to disappear

St. Paul of Tarsus


Whiteout is a weather condition in which visibility and contrast are severely reduced by snow or sand. The horizon disappears completely and there are no reference points at all, leaving the individual with a distorted orientation. Whiteout has been defined as: A condition of diffuse light when no shadows are cast, due to a continuous white cloud layer appearing to merge with the white snow surface. No surface irregularities of the snow are visible, but a dark object may be clearly seen. There is no visible horizon.


The orientation is no longer possible.

The World is so obvious as to cancel.


Through this metaphor, I wondered if it’s still possible to underline a role of image in Art in the contemporary society, overwhelmed by visual production.


In this context, boundaries among fields of visual production become increasingly blurred, so how can we find our way in the aesthetics experience?


Are the exhibition, the Museum or the Galleries the space of aestehtics yet? What drives us to go to these places? Which are our expectations? Are we going to the right place? Or have we to have a look further?


These are the questions I asked myself several times, and now I would like to pose them to the audience. Now, in a moment in which the huge possibility of seeing anything is likely to deny the authentic experience of watching.
