"Gli Occhi Chiusi" (Closed eyes) is a fresco painting realized in 2 months of work by the artist Agnese Galiotto at Artericambi gallery.

About

Fresh mortar and pigments bind together with the industrial architecture of the space, recounting the landscapes of a dreamlike Lessinia*: the coring of an ancestral past or the projection of a far-off future that we humans can now only imagine with our eyes closed. At the end of the exhibition, some pieces of fresco will be removed. Like fossils of the painting they will compress time, telling the story of a work that has been and that has been dismembered in space. The rest will be destroyed.

*Lessinia is a mountainous area between Verona, Vicenza and Trento (Italy) characterised by human presence since the second millennium BC. The oldest cave paintings in Europe, created by Sapiens and Neanderthals with natural pigments that are still used in painting today, can be found in these same places. The shape of the rocks and the numerous fossils found in Lessinia prove that 50 million years ago the area was covered by a warm sea inhabited by tropical species.
