Altered Perceptions

Scientific studies – as well as other sources –, would appear to prove that more than one reality exists, or rather, that the reality we are witness to is not its only, irrefutable form.

In other words, the world in which we are immersed could exist as a pure representation forged by the mind of man.

It is therefore a matter of opening the ‘Doors of Perception’ and going beyond the threshold of the apparent.

Philosophers, scientists, mystics and artists have often felt the urgency to overcome fear and rip through the veil to reach a broader and more motivated conception of “the whole”. 

Such breadth of understanding would place our existence, together with that of all sentient beings, within a single, enormous organism that is perfectly integrated into the Universe.

Also, in recent times, accredited researchers, renowned scientific institutions and prestigious journals speak often, and with great emphasis on, the reality of a Psychedelic Renaissance.

Each path involves an intuition, and a process of unveiling, that moves towards a secondary path which deviates from the high road.

Jaime Poblete (1981- Chile)

The work of Jaime Poblete reverberates with the distant echo of South American culture, namely that of the Maya.

Despite having come into contact with the well-nourished European school of art in recent decades, Poblete perfects an ancient practice applied to the creation of the artifact through the use of fabric, which now takes on the appearance of an image of synthesis, consolidated by his skilful use of color.

The object becomes a talisman or totem that could be associated with a shamanic rite, but remains contaminated by its impact with contemporary media.

Katja Loher (1979 - Switzerland)

A perfect fusion of technology and organic life, the scope of Katja Loher’s work reflects a magical world.

The result of a collaborative effort – including a team of designers, architects, graphic designers, composers, glassblowers, videomakers and poets –, her video-sculptures depict dancers as they take the form of small creatures in a multicolored play on perspective and scale that ennobles the existence of tiny beings.

Through her videos, the artist adopts a bird’s eye view to simulate sight through a microscope or kaleidoscope, while the symmetrical multiplication of moving bodies produces a rhythmically pulsating constellation in constant change.

Paolo Cavinato (1975 - Italy)

Parallel to the two new works of the “Solaris” series, created using his signature technique of “painted fishing wire”, here Cavinato exhibits a sculpture from the “Hidden Steps” series of 2016, representing two opposing, symmetrical and abstract stairways: each excluding one’s vision of the other, thereby constituting a sort of threshold that echoes Euclid’s theorem, which reads ‘two parallel lines meet only with infinity’.

Stefano Caimi (1991- Italy)

Using the technique of photogrammetry, Stefano Caimi seeps into the lymph of plants.

From the 360-degree scans of his selected subjects, Caimi creates a phantom image, almost a spectral X-ray of pure beauty. To this process he subsequently adds copious digital processing, including light and dark points, colors and meteoric trajectories that track their way through the dark.

The exhibition also presents the new “Polypore” series, which consists of small wall sculptures obtained from the galvanic deposition of copper on the organic body of a specific type of mushrooms.

Daniel Mullen (1985 - Scotland)

presents the new field of research that he has recently started working on: “Since my work is about architecture and has always had spatial qualities, I have always been curious about transposing it into three dimensions.“

The artist abandons the painting composed of frame and canvas and approaches cut and shaped wooden panels. “What excites me most about these works is that the frame of the painting disappears and instead it is the wall on which the work is hung that becomes the universe that surrounds it. And because of the perspective that comes from the architecture represented, the work subverts our sense of the built environment.”
