Informazioni

Comunicato stampa

Trasformazioni, trasfigurazioni, ritocchi leggeri, ma anche pesanti interventi estetici.
Elaborati cosmetici cutout e cutup di tratti somatici, di volti trovati, di anonimi o mitici esempi di fascino. Modelli umani ripresi e perfezionati dal tocco di alcuni artisti di oggi, all'instancabile ricerca di bellezze ideali, fuori dai canoni, a misura di sé. La mostra MakeUp, a cura di Mariuccia Casadio, ne identifica e raccoglie alcuni, esemplificando un epocale modus operandi, una tendenza a reinventare informazioni e materiali della memoria, una pulsione a personalizzare l'esistente, che definisce e inesauribilmente argomenta l'immaginario contemporaneo

Nonché, modi soggettivi di ripensare, perfezionare e sublimare le umane sembianze, reificare il passato, esorcizzare il futuro.
Sperimentando linguaggi, ipotizzando figurazioni, astrazioni, associazioni, sottrazioni, dissociazioni, duplicazioni, sovrapposizioni d'iconografici étant donné, sintetizzando un'inarrestabile cosmica ricerca di nuovi canoni, mutati concetti di armonia.
