Galleria Raffaella Cortese is pleased to announce Sbandata [Crush], curated by Pierre Bal-Blanc, the fourth solo show by Marcello Maloberti since 2002, year of the first collaboration.


Malobertiʼs artistic research draws inspiration from day-to-day events and urban contexts, paying attention to unshaped and precarious states of life. His observations, however, go beyond the ordinary evidence of everyday experience thanks to a neorealistic approach going towards a visionary direction, expressed through an extremely condensed and theatrical narrative. In the last years of his research, the artist has often evoked in his works the History of Art and classicism, through a performative language and the use of the body, with an interactive impact for the public.

The exhibition, the result of the artistic dialogue between the curator Pierre Bal-Blanc and Marcello Maloberti, is divided in all three spaces of via Stradella, reconnecting the three environments through visual and conceptual references. The works expand beyond the usual exhibition spaces, making the gallery uniquely accessible on this occasion, almost as if it were the hold of a ship that conceals a treasure. The works on display belong to different languages and they take shape on different supports, but come together in a single score of signs and meanings. 

Marcello Maloberti, with Sbandata, guides us through the discovery of references and connections between the works and the installations that invade the space of the gallery, envisioning the exhibition as if it were an archeological intervention. The artist skillfully creates an atmosphere of mystery, of disorientation and, at the same time, of preciousness and elegant sacredness of classical derivation.
