Comunicato stampa

La XIII luna, luna senza nome, inafferrabile e volubile, mutevole e incostante, luna arcana e di passaggio.
Fuori dai limiti che la regola temporale induce, è una luna di mezzo, contiene le qualità della luna che la precede e anticipa quelle della successiva. Luna di trasformazione. “Luna falsa” la chiamano anche, o “luna delle anime inquiete”, la luna “intrusa”, luna blu; stravagante e rara, luna magica, ultima luna



Tra l’alternarsi di equinozi e solstizi, il trascorrere delle ore, dei giorni, dei mesi, il suo arrivo interrompe una sequenza regolare di lunazioni –perenni vicende di nascite, morti e ricominciamenti-, l’incessante alternarsi ciclico delle stagioni. Sembrerebbe portare disordine e invece non genera che il suo contrario. Attraverso il caos e il mutamento, la sua venuta sostiene infatti l’ordine cosmico e riporta stabilità ed equilibrio riallineando le energie nello scorrere della sequenza lunare.

In stretto dialogo con la natura del luogo e lo spazio fisico che la ospita, la mostra esplora elegiacamente il passaggio e la registrazione del tempo suggerendo la possibilità di una differente narrativa.

EG
The thirteenth moon – a nameless moon that is elusive and fickle, unsettled and unpredictable, arcane and transient.
Free from the restrictions of the rules of time, it is a halfway moon encompassing the qualities of the moons that come before and after it. A moon of transformation, it is also called “false moon”, “moon of the restless souls”, “intrusive moon”, “blue moon” - extravagant and rare –, “magic moon”, and “last moon”.

In the alternation of the equinoxes and solstices, in the passing of the hours, days, and months, its arrival interrupts the regular sequence of lunations – a perpetual story of births, deaths and restarts -, the never-ending cyclic alternation of the seasons. It seems to bring disorder, but what it really does is to generate the opposite. Through chaos and change, its arrival supports the cosmic order, bringing stability and balance, realigning the energies in the flowing of the sequence of the moon.

Furini Contemporary opens a new exhibition space in Arezzo, in the Chiesa della Madonna del Duomo Vecchio [Church of Our Lady of the Old Cathedral], with La XIII Luna [The Thirteenth Moon], a project that includes works by Lupo Borgonovo, Enzo Cucchi, Raphael Hefti, Norbye Morten Halvorsen, Gianni Politi and Jessica Warboys. In close connection with the nature of the place and the physical space hosting it, the exhibition plaintively explores the passage and recording of time, suggesting the possibility of a different reading.
