Skins. "These images and sculptural objects could be archeological remains which might contribute to shedding light on a lost civilization; perhaps totems or tools for some ritual gatherings or offerings".


comunicato stampa

Exhibition text: Elisa Tosoni

A constellation of items of uncertain provenance and undefined, denied function, inhabits the space of Station 21 creating an out-of-time scenario. Laying at the boundary between the sacred and the science fictional, these images and sculptural objects could be archeological remains which might contribute to shedding light on a lost civilization; perhaps totems or tools for some ritual gatherings or offerings.

They not only push the viewer towards further inquiry on their nature and purpose, they act as triggers to question his/her own cultural identity. What would we, our cultural environment and our social cocoon become, once certain layers of skin would be stripped off and our inner selves exposed bare? Would our systems of thought and belief still stand on their feet, although modified by the layering and the crosspollination with others?

Nicola Genovese (b. 1971, Venice; lives and works in Padua, IT) is an artist and musician currently in residence at OG9 for Rotation Atelier.
