Objects do not exist due to their physical presence, but thanks to what we see. imaginarii, the inaugural exhibition at the Fondazione Carriero, analyzes the contemporary notion
of space and its experience.
Three artists—Gianni Colombo, Giorgio Griffa, Davide Balula — are compared in a trialogue, which, in itself, is inaccessible, if not through direct experience of physical space. If the object and its image are finite, our experience of these is infinite and difficult to enjoy through reproduction techniques. The show investigates this spatial dimension.
The works of Gianni Colombo are presented in a new context, in a unique and immersive environment. Giorgio Griffa’s non-finite suggests the shift from the second to the third dimension, including color, form, and time into his investigations from the canvas to the surrounding space. The spatiality of nature in Davide Balula begins from common objects, habits, or events to create an anima mundi where the imagination communicates with the universe itself.
