The exibition continues until November 11th

Isotta Giannetta's exhibition project focuses attention, through an analytical course of study, on the process mysterious way through which the human being arrives at understanding and realizing himself: a path anthroposophical, abandoned by our way of conceiving the present and of which every trace has been lost. Through the 4 points of the exhibition (Nigredo Viriditas Albedo and Rubedo), Giannetta shows us her personal method of evolution and makes available to the public her personal research that is leading her to an ever greater penetration into the causes, effects and results given by our existence.

Nigredo (opera in black), it consists of a tabula rasa, in a total annihilation of what the individual knew he knew about himself and the world. The representation of this phase is proposed through collages and elaborate images by the artist during his economics studies.

Viriditas is the phase in which the purposes of existence are perceived more consciously, where we come from shaken from the sleep of reason: the awareness of the self. This phase is proposed through images radiographs (real or painted) of the human body where, in the center, a colored nucleus is highlighted based on the type of person.

Albedo (opera in white) is the phase of rebirth, the dawn of knowledge, the discovery of being "two", the hesitation towards the new, the still invincible fear of what is too big. This phase is proposed through the figure of Pinocchio, the best-known Italian fairy tale in the world where the evolutionary process is embodied in the human being through the figure of a wooden puppet that transforms into a child. (In these canvases there is no shortage of religious and esoteric references).

Rubedo is the phase of the union of the two poles, the discovery of the sacred in himself when all fears are abandoned and the impossible becomes possible. The world already knows this phase because great revolutions occur when this level is reached.

* The exhibition is accompanied by a limited edition catalog/artist portfolio of 50 copies: a case with photos of the works produced together with the curator's critical text and the artist's biography.
