WHITE IS NOT A COLOR
Photography / Painting / Performance
Edited by Sabrina Massini
Palazzo Casali / Cortona 28 February to 15 March 2015
This exhibition was born from five young artists with Franca Livi LemonI. Franca had in mind an exhibition in Cortona, as a tribute to the city that hosted her many years for work. The idea of â€‹â€‹marrying her and other artists research, often unknown, is her primary interest. The enhancement of local artists is one of the main purposes of the Foundation Ad Sidera, of which Franca is President; Foundation that has much wanted her husband Giuseppe Lemoni.
Photography by Mark Caterini, Giovanni Bigazzi, Lorenzo Magistrate, Simone Padelli; painting and performance, in collaboration with violinist Francis Fidel, for Luca Bisaccioni; painting and performance, with soprano Elizabeth Materazzi and pianist Anna Liberatori, for Franca Livi Lemoni. From their work emerged a color and a concept in common: White. White is the color of the Milky Way and the light yearns Cosmo Franca Livi Lemoni; White is the color that tend skies and buildings of the city of Caterini; White is the metaphorical sheet from which Bisaccioni part to reinvent painting paying tribute to Pollock; White is one of two colors that builds the image of Bigazzi; White are the walls, the skies, the light of the works of Padelli; white light that outlines the figure and the space of the Magistrate. White is not just a color, it also refers to the light, to an inner state of innocence and purity, a metaphor for all the possibilities, all the colors of the spectrum.
The images have a very different life than the meaning that the author wants to give it. This openness to the possible interpretations, as well as the involvement of experiential performance, wants to be the contribution of this exhibition to the art of our time.
An exhibition made up of personalities and different languages, in order to show the peculiarities of each and at the same time try to leave a clear overview of our land and strong, made from the best of our artistic and intellectual capacity, with the intention to promote young talents.
