The Marcolini Gallery presents Flumina, a project by Roberto Ghezzi that in his painting investigates a new possible (non) representation of nature. What Ghezzi establishes with reality is a mimetic relationship presenting the sign that nature imprints on previously prepared supports and on which then Ghezzi intervenes, modifying its appearance and final perception. His works are witnesses of an intimate union between man and nature, unique objects defined by the artist as a “natural mimesis”, the repetition of a sign that is itself nature. His “Naturografie” are cultures of cyanobacteria, algae, protists, aquatic lichens, rhizoids on which he intervenes by modifying the course of proliferation. “The sign that these organisms trace on the support is a curious and unexpected form of natural beauty that corresponds to the beauty of spontaneous forms of nature, such as spiderweb, corolla, foliage, and it is not representation, human sign”.

Inauguration on Saturday 27 October at 18.00

Roberto Ghezzi’s “naturografie” are works that arise from the effective collaboration between Man and “Ambiente” in which the artist prepares the supports that will be installed in the landscape, chooses the places where to place them and decides the exposure times. Everything else is done by Nature which, left to act undisturbed for days, months or years on the surfaces of naturography, acts like a painter on a white canvas. We then witness the creation of a “living” work of art that does not represent the landscape, but it is the landscape, for that time and on that support chosen by the artist for this purpose. For VIE PERIPHERICHE the artist will perform a tracing of the chemical and dynamic life of the river Savio.

June 2018: Roberto Ghezzi is  artist in residence in South Africa .
He installed canvas and organza supports at two locations on the continent: Blyde River Canyon and Mossel Bay.

These two locations were chosen because the artist wants to deal with the red earth of the continent and with the ocean, two different and very fascinating environments.

The naturographs have been entrusted to two local artists who will follow their development throughout the month of July and August.

Between 2017 and 2018 Roberto Ghezzi was artist in residence at the Lake of Varese in a project curated by the Montessori School of Calcinate.
During the residency, which lasted about six months, the artist installed some canvases in the lake, entrusting their care to the students of the Montessori School and involving them in the first person in his artistic research.
At the end of the school year the naturographies realized in this way were exhibited inside the Chiostro di Voltorre near Varese.
