Anton Giulio Onofri. Non mi troverai

16 December 2022 - 31 January 2023
Two missed appointments with Gian Maria Tosatti curated by Saverio Verini

On Thursday 15 December 2022, Fondazione Pastificio Cerere will be presenting Non mi troverai (You Won’t Find Me), a photographic story by Anton Giulio Onofri with the contribution of Gian Maria Tosatti.

The exhibition, which has been curated by Saverio Verini and will be open to the public from Friday 16 December 2022 to Tuesday 31 January 2023, features the 24 images from the photographic series Casa di Gian Maria a Napoli (Gian Maria’s House in Naples, 2020), which, together with an epistolary correspondence between the photographer and the artist, traces a portrait in absentia of Gian Maria Tosatti through a singular and poetic exploration of his domestic space.

In the autumn of 2020, between one quarantine and another, Anton Giulio Onofri was invited to drop by Gian Maria Tosatti’s house in Naples a couple of times, since the two were share an intellectual bond that has been going on for more than 12 years.However, during those months, the artist was coming and going unannounced from Odessa, Ukraine, where he was staging an episode of his project Il mio cuore è vuoto come uno specchio (My Heart is Empty as a Mirror), so the two were unable to meet. Onofri thus took the opportunity to wander around the rooms of the flat, looking for traces of his friend.
