"Rome, Naples and other scattered things"
26 January – 24 March 2018
Opening: Friday 26th January 2018 at 7 pm
Dates: 26th January to 24th March
On Friday 26th January 2018 at 7 pm, Honos Art presents “Rome, Naples and other scattered things”, the new solo exhibition of Guido Pecci curated by Marco De Gemmis and Loredana Rea.
An expressive project involving the National Archaeological Museum of Naples and the Umberto Mastroianni Foundation of Arpino in an expositive synergy set up to materialize a pictorial thought intended to explore existential and cultural areas delimited by different assertions, yet linked to each other.
The exhibition offers the opportunity to explore the complexity of an expressive never monotonous research, whose goal is a constant overriding of the results achieved to pursue an irrepressible need for wandering, fed by different suggestions, from poetry to music, from cinema to everyday life, from Pompeian painting to graffiti on the walls of urban suburbs.
In this project, developed throughout 2018, Guido Pecci has orchestrated a clever narration that moves from the antiquity to reach the present time. The glue is a conceptually dense painting, which suggests intense appearances to delineate an imaginative dimension full of charm. This new cycle of works contains paintings and papers of different sizes and small sculptures, fragments of clay recovered from the folds of memory, which flank the paintings and counterpoint the rhythm of a visual story, built by hybridizing multiform records to follow the subtle yet tenacious thread of the charm of Rome, Naples and other scattered things.
After Honos Art, the exhibition will be hosted at the MANN in Naples and then at Ladislao Castle in Arpino, to propose a sort of balance on the relationship that Pecci has with the antiquity. Rome and Naples therefore become two large containers of memories and suggestions, from which the artist comes in and out all the time, in a continuous search for himself and his own way of being in the world.
