Rossocinabro with the exhibition “Realities in the Making” presents the most recent new works of 38 international artists.
Many are the cultural differences in works of these artists, but from the opening of the Contemporary Day throughout 2021, the underlying theme will be plural identity.
Some works offer a glimpse into an encounter between ordinary material life and all that lies behind it: dreams, visions, fantasies and unconscious images. They are interspersed with fragments of the mediated reality of screens and photographs.
Others choose contrasting motifs by emphasizing the distinction between reality and fiction, darkness and light, rationality and irrationality, restriction and freedom, between outside and inside. However, this duality in these works is not tense or conflicting. The connections between the opposite poles are unstable, fluid and naturally change continuously.
Some artists also represent a multifaceted and unstable world in often almost monochromatic colours. The objects are fragmentary, apparently unfinished, their forms dissolve as if to confirm that the authenticity of visible reality is a mere illusion.
Therefore, the subjects of this exhibition are not integral but fragmented and they contain all these realities in becoming. This is probably why in some paintings, photos or sculptures often do not see a complete human figure, but its parts (faces, hands) or their substitutes (details of clothing, accessories). The allusions to the self-portrait testify to a personal and emotional approach to work. The artists argue with the tradition of the portrait and self-portrait genre but they distance themselves from the need to represent the individuality of the portrait. They speak in signs, visual metaphors and symbols that act as catalysts of emotions.
The exhibition does not offer a clear and coherent narrative, but rather provides impulses that provoke the viewer's experiences and evoke memories.
This exhibition is characterized by emotional intensity, psychological suggestion and invites the viewer to self-discovery.
