Dei modi del dipingere l’invisibile
Achille Perilli returns in Naples with the solo show Dei modi del dipingere l’invisibile, which will be staged from October 24, 2013 at the Ambulacro the Historical Royal Palace and will continue in the exhibition spaces of the AICA Gallery | Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art.
The exhibition includes paintings from the Fifties to the present day, ceramics, titled Distorted, and the new Tegole Pompeiane, so named by the master, presented at the Royal Palace.
This part of the exhibition, curated by Patrizia Di Maggio, will exhibit in one of the most representative citizens monuments the polychrome terracotta bas-reliefs created by the artist in the laboratory of Fornace Falcone of Montecorvino Rovella since 1996.
The Tegole are inspired by the elements of cover of insulae of Pompeii, and are made according to the most traditional craft processes.
Tegole are a homogeneous group of small and refined sculptures with which Perilli chose to refer to the history and archaeological and artistic tradition of Naples, to whose charms the master could not escape.
The overall idea of the exhibition, conceived by Andrea Ingenito, brings together some of the most interesting works by the artist, which aims to document the multifaceted production, starting from the artistic group Forma 1 (1947) and reaches up to now, “An art to catch up with the time, that evolves and materializes without ever losing touch with the manual” as Perilli recently said.
The selection of works intended foster a dialogue between the idea of space, expressed in the paintings, and that the timing of the sculptures, highlighting the evolution and the multiplicity of interests of one of the masters of the twentieth century.
The paintings bear witness to how the study of the geometric construction of the space and its perception is constant and in the Perilli’s art: stars with the rigorous Arte Concreta Group, it has developed the premises through the creative use of perspective and geometry, up to make each canvas a labyrinthine pictorial space.
The Distorti comes from the seduction exerted on him from clay and its particullary working process, and are a significant complement in the archaeological and historical memory represented by Pompeian Tegole.
At the inauguration, in the AICA Gallery will be present the video interview granted by the master at his home studio in Orvieto and exclusively created for the exhibition by the filmmaker Pasquale Napolitano.
