"... And so we went out to see the stars again" is the last verse of Hell of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy. After painstakingly crossing the "natural burella" that connects Hell to the beach of the Antipurgatory, Dante and Virgil at the end contemplate the starry night sky of the other hemisphere: it is an omen of the new path of light and hope after the previous darkness , "as pure happiness of the gaze". [1]

[1] Bianca Garavelli, in D. Alighieri, Inferno, Milan, Bompiani, 1993, p. 501.

The Flat - Massimo Carasi gallery reopens its doors to the public, after the protracted closure due to Covid 19, with a group show that look forward for a restart of the axctivities.

Convinced that the physical space of the gallery will resist the broadsides of innovations and will remain  an essential meeting point to share with the public, we recognize that no man / woman is an island .

Art, in all its disciplines, remains the most enthralling mystery and witnessing its representations  will simply remain of VITAL importance.

The artworks in this show are like the stars, to which  Dante refers to and they  illuminate  a very dark path.

So for the end of the season program, we have chosen a roundup of works that trry to shape the physiognomy of contemporary human beings with their passions and obsessions, between damnation and holiness, bewilderment and hope.These are works that refer to woman/man but do not really portray them with their aspects. Instead  these “fragments” evoke human’s  presence by interpreting the fetishes that they  left behind as traces.

These artists, use  new and traditional media, adopting the most varied techniques to grasp their dimension with  simple, or sometimes, categorical gestures.

Painting, botanical scanning, installation, use of electronic parts, ready made reinterpreted, explore the space from the dark towards a rediscovered way out.
