Milan, Old Town. Friday, February 5th new appointment with the Art in 8 Corridoni Street at Artworks Milano Gallery, where it opens the second edition of the cycle of exhibitions Unknown Cities.
You can admire the ceramics of some great master: Sandro Chia, Salvatore Fiume, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Joseph Rossicone, Mario Schifano and Ernesto Treccani. Artists and important milestones of our history.
Also on display are paintings and drawings of Remo Brindisi, Lucio Forte, Laura Lapini and Paola Mantovani, interesting works in oil and mixed media on canvas, wood and paper, of small, medium and large format.
The theme of the exhibition focuses on the idea of imaginary and unknown cities, that representing the highest levels of articulation and of complexity of human activity in his madness toward the premature and total destruction of the planet, an idea in science fiction (and hopefully not real), about the Global Earth conurbation.
Premature destruction compared of the natural death of the sun, which will make our planet uninhabitable anyway.
The opening night, Friday 5 February starting at 6:00 pm, will glad and will bring to a flight of imagination, through these visions and hypotheses, also thanks to the tasting of fine wines from Piacenza, products of agricultural traditions by the farm Il Casello. Beauty and harmony are born from the earth, in consonance with nature and in contrast to a strong push toward the artificial that is a dangerous trend of our era.
Historical trend that emerged from the time when the industrial revolution began to change rapidly and irreversibly a world that until that moment lived in a balanced ecosystem.
This ecosystem was formed in times so immense that's for our imagination hardly graspable, for our inability to abstracting our thinking from the contingency of the time in which we live.
A natural world in which we was always been a small piece integrant in balance.
Unknown Cities instead are extreme expressions of the conurbation of the planet, as well as the hope to realize always more complex technology until you get to build cities prepared to survive in Space, that will be necessary when we will destroy all the Earth, our ship in the universe.
Then we wonder why we do not act, why do not you understand that it is wiser to safeguard this ship.
And the answer is simple, and it is because the exploitation of the planet is a monster that lives its own life, that walk on their own feet and we can not control.
