The work entitled “Grains of space” is inspired by a concept that explains Carlo Rovelli in the book Seven short physics lessons, the theory that space is made up of space atoms. Furthermore, a bas-relief in the first room of the Omero Museum was born from the interest for the Ludovisi Throne. The folds, present in this work, have been linked by the artist to the idea of a trace, recalling the emotional map of Madaleine De Scudery, a fantastic geographical map dominated by the lake of indifference and the sea of dangers …
The work presented in this exhibition is divided into 8 modified photographic images that intend to collect atoms of memories traced in a precise period of the life of the artist’s father deported to a camp for military prisoners in Germany during the Second World War.
The works on display are the result of the workshop “A Portrait of Museum” led by Massimo Vitangeli for the Tactile State Museum Omero.
The works, which have taken as a reference the ancient, modern and contemporary art collection of the Museum, are the result of the experiential journey made in the area of multisensoriality. Participants have arrived at syntheses and aesthetic elaborations that the language of art provides by offering us their individual interpretations through video portraits, synaesthetic works, sensorial stories to be given to themselves and to others.
