FOLLOWING THE EXPOSITION AT GANZO - CULTURAL ASSOTIATION, OF FOOD & WINE AND ART, FLORENCE, VOLOGNANO CASTLE WILL BE PLEASED TO HOST:
RADICI – ROOTS
BY GLORIA SULLI
Gloria Sulli is an artist from Abruzzo who brings to Florence her fear of the conflict that arises between remaining anchored to her homeland and the desire to travel. They are roots clinging to the pavement of the universe not belonging to a single hemisphere. It seems, therefore, that the transfer of the plastic experience is equivalent to a musical one. Sulli's aim is not to add the sounds of nature to this experience but to provide a musical sheet that each and every one of us will execute as an imaginary reading. Turning heavy and inert material into immaterial and airy lightness, using different elements composed of strings and sheets with a minimum of physical presence, like acupuncture on space. Reaching a dimension that is more open to synesthesia, to interferences between all sensorial spheres according to the rule of obtaining maximum effect with minimum means, like causing tumults in space by blows of hidden hands. But there is more to this. The works are a clear underlining of how man and his impermanence relays invisibility to those whose roots are well-anchored. It is a dialogue between emptiness and fullness, a question that has accompanied all Contemporary Art in which peripheral decentralization prevails over the search for the center. Yet Sulli seems to go beyond such a concept with the description of her anchored subjects, unbridled by existential veins that subtract or attract towards a mobility of a reign or a simple end.
