Sunday, May 3 at 11:00 am will inaugurate at the AICA gallery | Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art, in via Massimiano 25, Milan, the group show titled Pompeii Project, conceived by Andrea Ingenito and curated by Serena Ribaudo. This exhibition is born from the need to revisit this famous archaeological site in the world by highlighting the historical and universal matrices. Presented in national premiere at the fifth edition of MIA Milan Image Art Fair 2015, in its first only photographic phase, the project continues, in this exhibition, its growth process, going to incorporate varied and different artistic expressions. The protagonists will investigate, everyone according to his personal figure and its own means of expression, the memory of a place, its uniqueness and its authentic essence.
T he old that meets contemporary: the visionary images of Suzanne Moxhay and Barbara Nati, photographs that tell the timeless past in one of the most representative places of historical, cultural, anthropological still exist. Photographs in which the elements of Pompeii, are transposed into dreamlike, utopian, sometimes apocalyptic and, therefore, so far unknown.
A dual perspective is offered to our gaze from precious diptychs photographer Sandro Scalia. From bottom to top, from blue sky to the sunny ground, from wall to pavements: glimpses enclosed in two different points of view, for a single overview, through a single glance.
In the work of Giacomo Rizzo the material aspect is manifested through the sculptural language. The sculptor creates and exhibits for the occasion a rock cast Giving voice to an extremely methodology related to the well-known events of Pompeii, and that pervades much of the artistic act, particularly dedicated to the archeology of nature.
Thanks to this exhibition will be highlighted once again the importance of artistic excellence, already declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 1997.
The beginning of a journey, therefore, with the prospect of increasing the use and dissemination of the accurate exhibition, through national and international stages.
