ALL ART IS CONTEMPORARY
Every object is a story to be told; a dialogue that travels through time.
A mark of time to be preserved and heard... and considered.
Morandi e la contemporaneità
A link – that between Giorgio Morandi and contemporaneity – that has been faced many times over the course of time, and which testifies to the continuing – and never-ending – topicality of the poetics of the great Bolognese master. Poetics based on silence and the restless mystery hidden behind apparent reality.
After all, ‘nothing is more abstract than reality', says Morandi, testifying to his intimate bond with the everydayness of existence, with his intimate relationship with the things that surround him. He reached the summit of his spirituality by being a poet of matter, even managing to make dust sing. Not the physical dust, of course, but the dust of the soul. It is precisely here that Morandi's ‘contemporaneity' lies: an artist ‘in between' figurative and material painting.
The works of two contemporary artists relate to the poetics of the Bolognese master in the exhibition: the painter, Andrea Federici, and the glass sculptor, Joan Crous. Personalities different from each other but – in their own way – in harmony with Morandi's.
