L’Occhio Gallery presents the solo exhibition of Alessandro Cardinale – DIALOGHI, curated by Elisabetta Donaggio. The exhibition gathers together a selection of new works on the series Nu Shu and some new works on the series Equilibrium. Both series are about language and communication, in particular they deal with the dynamics of the comprehension of a message. These works have been inspired by the chinese language called "Nu Shu", a secret women language created in the past in the region of Húnán - China, without men's knowledge, to share their own memories and experiences secretly written in the embroided fans and suits that men thought to be simple decorations. On the contrary they were encrypted messages that were handed down from generation to generation as silent witness of the female condition of the time. Similar to a sculpture this work also has different points of view: It changes in appearance according to the point of view of the observer up to entirely change both in the aspect than in the meaning. It is made of cotton strips that recall the shape of the fan on which the messages were written. They are put together so that only from one specific location an image is visible, which can be lost when changed, as the "messages" return to be no more incomprehensible.
The exhibition DIALOGHI will be open until July 13th 2017, from Monday to Saturday 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM -Tuesday and Sunday by appointment.
