On Friday November the 11th, at 6.30 pm, ABC-ARTE opening Matteo Negri: Piano Piano curated by Alberto Fiz and with the critical contribution by Lorenzo Bruni
The title Piano Piano concentrates the basic concepts of this artist’s research, such as the relationship between the individual and space. When the observer is included in this kind of works, he feels disoriented on a perceptional level. The word ‘Piano’ is repeated on purpose, in the same way as images of the space follow one another on the translucent surfaces of the plastic artworks.
The artist conceived works and environmental installations specifically for the gallery spaces, decoding a slow contemplative process, in conflict with the constant transmission of images in our everyday life.
Sculpture, as an applied science, questions its own existence and develops itself through an artisan, technological and planning method. It interferes with the exhibition itinerary on two perceptional levels: the first is pretty objective, while the second is made of reflections, showing how these artworks are able to create endless visual possibilities.
