The combination of the artworks “Genesis” and “Bombas de Racimo” by Lidó Rico (S), “A.n.m.l.a.” by Andrea Mariconti (I), “Shanshui Exploration Nr. 1” by Vemo Hang (CHN), “Ablutio” by Rowan Corkill (UK) and "Habitat" by Irene Cruz (S) recreates a counterfeit primordial world, where the creative spark is at its pure potential and at its most expressiveness. The first instants of conscious life: the whole history and future of humanity’s are contained in these moments, as the Big Bang explosion already contained the whole Universe in all its becoming phases. Past, present and future gather together and ally so to give us the creation of all. The potential is intact, the choice of how to develop it is entirely ours, as well as the one of our own evolution. All proper means are there and available. The interconnection with the rest of nature is evident and taken for granted.
Following this key lecture, the selection of these artworks is not just a metaphor of our condition of young gallery believing in the potential of our becoming, neither just a contemporary interpretation of Rousseau’s vision of the myth of the noble savage, but also a support of his Discours sur les sciences et les arts. At the Luisa Catucci Gallery, we believe in the power of inspiring art and culture. Humanity’s emancipation and evolution, since the beginning of time, is reached by feeding the soul and brain with stimulating nourishment, in order to open more doors hidden in our brains, to become better beings, better societies and thus a better planet. Art is an outstanding power food. We truly value its fundamental role of instigator for reflections and feelings out of the ordinary.
