Time is the substance of which I am made. It’s a river in flood that drags me along but I am the River. It is a tiger that devours me but I am the Tiger, It is a fire that consumes me but I am the Fire (Jorge L. Borges)
In Greek philosophical thought, time is a single and homogeneous flow, in which all things subject to change are immersed. This stream is mostly circular, and its symbol is the Ouroboros, the serpent or dragon that eats its own tail. Our existence is marked by time: through its perception, the human being recognizes himself and builds his being in the world, placing himself in relationship with other subjects. Each of us fits into a time that already exists: a mythical time, a historical time, and a cosmic time and all three dimensions interact continuously and represent, one for the other, a condition of possibility of experience and of knowledge. The human being, without interrupting the linear progress of time, can spiritually return to his origins, when he discovers in the world and in himself the traces of the divine, that is, the ancient source of Being, which the ancients called Apocalypse or Revelation and that doom and darkness were always connected with it. The river that we call Time is ourselves: to stop the river, we must alchemically strip ourselves of the bark and refocus on our inner rhythm.
The exhibition is made up of twenty-one artists and performers from the national and international scene, present in the exhibition with multidisciplinary works including performance and sound. In the trilogy between mythical, historical, and cosmic time, three large installations on display between the geographies of the exodus, the body and cyberspace, history, and memory by French artist Brigitte Amarger. Floating worlds and Zen encryptions in the pictorial works by French artist Claudie Bastide. Rhythms, algorithms and signs in the vibrant canvases by Nena Cirkovic, a Serbian artist based in Austria. Light as a revelation of our divine Self in the work by Slovenian Ines Fugina-Malnar. Histrionic and anthropomorphic everyday objects with the micro sculptures by American artist Ronald Gonzalez, who addresses the issues of identity between memory, mortality, and rebirth. Cyclical time in the celebration of a ritual between man and woman in the paintings by Pnina Granirer, a Romanian artist based in Canada. Transience and nature in the installations of natural elements by American artist Dena Haden and in the recycled materials by Dutch artist Hannie Kortland. Magnetic fields of information in phenomenological space are the pictorial polyptych by the Chinese artist Ping He. Beauty, death, transformation and rebirth in the evocative works by UK-based South African artist Lize Krüger. Physical, psychological and social identity in the micro-sculpture by Masha Luch, a Siberian artist based in Montenegro and time and space in the alchemical sculpture by American artist Maudegrasse. War in the fifth dimension is depicted in Polish artist Pawel Opalinski‘s slow-speed photographs of moving objects, and nature as a science-fiction, hybrid landscape in photographs by French designer and artist Marie Piselli, whose sequential works remind us of the big bang cosmic. A visionary who dreams of entire worlds is the theme of the pictorial diptych by Marco Riha, an Austrian who lives and works in Mexico. Discovering one’s identity roots between travel, memory and slow rhythms in the photos by American artist Anthony Kyle Rotelli of Italian origins. Creative inscriptions, traces, alphabets, symbols between figuration and abstraction, the pictorial works by Luxembourg artist Margot Reding-Schroeder, made with wax, stone powders, transfers that give a sense of eternity. The earth and the sea and the relationship between art and science in the pictorial works by German artist Verena Schwarz, based in New Mexico. Stories of stones, memory, fragility, and cyclical time in the installation by Italian artist Teresa Vella. All artists have a wealth of professional experience, exhibitions and public collections.
Massimiliano Manieri began his professional activity in the nineties, with reading and itinerant project such as the Poet-Bar, where his approach to storytelling and poetry emerges. Over time, he develops performative and conceptual projects of great visual and communicative impact, which lead him to exhibit in Performing Art Festivals, galleries, and museums at national and European level. In performance with Perceptual Border (with the participation of Madia Biondo). The performance is a moment of reflection on own Self, through a monologue between the performer and his conscience. In the dilated space of the action, the artist plays on various levels of reading, inviting the viewer to speak and react to verbal provocations. The goal of the performance is to rediscover for better or for worse, the beauty of the uniqueness of the human being with its wonderful facets.
