VITAL GRAFTS - Filippo Centenari

In the installation “Vital Grafts”, the debris accumulates, hides and suffocates the human presence which, buried by the drama, the unstoppable power of nature or by the wickedness of his fellows, seems to lose all vital hope. For a while, the frailty appears to take the upper hand upon life and it seems like the obscure time has come. The matter crumbles away, hope shatters, the debris covers and pervades the space. Time puts an end to its journey and immobility does not accept any vital spasm. The meaning of what happened before remains unknown and, while the light breaks up and interrupts the silent hanging, in the eyes of the ones who still live under the darkness of adversity, the shining light of hope is revealed. The neon-blades represent, for Filippo Centenari, the power that both gives and takes life away. From the beams of light penetrating the debris come expectancy and the faith in an eternal lighting. The shadows of destruction tail off, to the point of becoming invisible and impalpable. Now, it is not the darkness of pain to rule, but light, intended as the epiphany of a new vital graft.

From 28th March until 6th April 2008
