HOW TO KEEP YOUR HEAD AMONG THE CLOUDS
Heart at the top and head in the clouds. To be there is to create exchange opportunities, not only vertically, between heaven and earth, but also in the real stretch marks, existent.
Research by Antonello Ghezzi, from its origins in the poetry Relational Aesthetics, is light house of circumstances to transform the environment, the present and the very life of objects, without the ready-made traps, Arte Povera, or surrealist Magritte.
Clouds, ladders, flying carpets and swings are spaces of freedom, bright subversion of the forms, delicate and childish opposition, trajectories, triggers.
The previous lives of these objects have durations from experience, been meeting, in which the forms extend beyond the materiality of the rungs or a mirror.
The research does not solve nell'artigianalità, but finds himself in the aesthetic ethics of the relationship provided that cross between visible and invisible. The work becomes an active part of reciprocal change.
Antonello Ghezzi flee the monumentality and permanence to include, in the relationship between the artist and the "transcendent", who decides to indulge in the metaphorical game of life. Aware that even to make an image, Godard said, It must be in two.
Nominations will be made of a utopia can, minimum moralia, nomadic impermanenza. They are the chiasm of Merleau Ponty, promise of change.
The lines of flight towards the sky are provisional, are convocations, togethers, appointments to which "connect" with the heavenly abyss longing.
