The last painting – 1977- Acrylics on punched canvas – cm. 130×170

Questo quadro, come da titolo, documenta l’abbandono della pittura su tela. La successiva creazione del Filo e lo stacco definitivo del colore dalla superficie hanno permesso al colore/materia di riappropriarsi della sua “plasticitĂ ” acrilica e in seguito di reinventare la sua storia dell’arte laica e pedestre

Il Filo farĂ  la sua prima apparizione nel 1977 gettando un Bridging Statement fra arte/artista e pubblico

“Nel Frattempo” – Text/interview by Ida Panicelli from the catalogue of the show/Artist in Presence FIL-OSO-FO’-FIL – Turin 1983

The Filo never was bought and sold. I always donated it, disperse it and symbolically exchanged it. The Filo is not a thing that one can sell, if any one can tie it to a site or a memory, or disperse it secretly, or to be depicted, to be quoted on other objects, to be melt, sculpted, photographed, embroidered, or used in a peformance….

Il Filo in sĂ© non è mai stato oggetto di compravendita, l’ho sempre regalato, disperso, scambiato simbolicamente. Il Filo non è cosa da vendere, semmai da regalare ad un luogo o a una memoria, da legare a un luogo o a una memoria, da disperdere segretamente, da rappresentare, da citare su altri oggetti, da fondere, da scolpire, da fotografare, da ricamare, da usare performativamente ….

Giovanni, mio figlio con sindrome di Down di quindici anni, ed io per  quattro mesi  abbiamo  lavorato insieme  a questo progetto

TREMONDI + UNO.

Ogni giorno un segno ed ogni mese un  colore primario diverso per concludere con il bianco simbolo della primarietĂ   del nostro legame. Su questi “mondi” abbiamo incrociatole nostre mani,  le nostre  idee, le fantasie e le paure e in maniera tangibile le nostre vite.

Giovanni, my fefteen years old son with down syndrome and I, have worked together for four months on this project

TREMONDI + UNO

Every day a sign and every month a primary color background concluding with the white one symbolic of the primariness of our bond. On this “worlds” we have crossed our hands, our ideas, our fantasies, our fears thus in a tangible way…our lives.
