Alessandro Vizzini: VU –

13 September - 21 October 2022
curated by Sonia D'Alto

On Tuesday 13 September 2022, Fondazione Pastificio Cerere will present VU –, Alessandro Vizzini‘s solo exhibition curated by Sonia D’Alto, which will be open to the public from Wednesday 14 September to Friday 21 October 2022.

Favouring sculpture as a means of representation, Alessandro Vizzini bases his artistic research on the process of landscape observation and the reworking of such scenarios by exploring and overturning the drifts of the modernist relationship between human beings and the habitat they are part of.

Moving between present, past and future, and creating a bridge between projected and pre-existing objects, the exhibition – the title of which transposes the forms in the exhibition into letters –, proposes a kind of metaphysics of reality nourished by material and spiritual fragments of the Mediterranean. Each work represents a specific subject in the landscape, reworked through a psychogeographical approach – a practice in which the effects of the geographical environment act directly on the emotional behaviour of individuals. The exhibition itinerary, which is articulated in ‘devices for the imagination’, includes works like fragments and ritual relics, capturing the viewer in the relationship between a physical and a psychic dimension. 

The project, which is promoted by Roma Capitale – Department of Culture, is the winner of the ‘Estate Romana 2022 – Riaccendiamo la Città, Insieme’ Public Notice curated by the Department of Cultural Activities.
