Libro d’artista e catalogo della mostra Sinossi (bon voyage) di Pesce Khete, presso Colli Independent, Roma. Analizzando diversi cataloghi d’arte, di pittura, per individuare le tipologie di schedatura delle opere in pittura. Strumento descrittivo della materia della pittura, la scheda supporta l’immagine a restituire in solido l’opera, usando codici fisico-dimensionali, contestuali, di proprietà: rendendosi “discorsiva” raggiunge la narratività o la processualità. Partendo da una bibliografia selezionata di tipi di pubblicazioni sulla pittura, anche “maestra”, si sperimenta questo dispositivo letterario per indagare l’opera di un artista con parametri poetici-tecnici, in parte prestati dalla storiografia artistica. Versione a tiratura speciale con cartella in serigrafia contenente la versione standard in aggiunta a quattro tavole pittoriche originali e uniche, tutte firmate nel retro.

The portraits in this book were made by Franco Lanteri in Lentini, a town located in south-east Sicily. He was part of a generation of photographers in 1950s Italy that learned by doing. Lanteri’s job in this provincial town covered a range of social ceremonies, such as weddings, birthdays, and baptisms, but also ID photos. Here the averted gazes of the nameless subjects, their almost three-quarters poses, and use of lights and black-and-white film are aspects that seem entirely contrary to today’s canons of photography for identification documents. Compiled as large-format reproductions, they reflect a narrative approach, or perhaps one more befitting to an anthropological investigation.

Catalogo della mostra Per dipingere i venti, per disegnare dal vero di Roberto De Simone, a cura di Myriam Laplante presso COLLI independent art gallery, Roma. “Catturare un momento fugace e trasformarlo in infinito” potrebbe essere la chiave per decifrare il lavoro sfaccettato di Roberto De Simone. La sua opera è poetica: sublime ma razionale, audace, ironica e abbagliante. Sin dai primi anni Ottanta ha lavorato con una serie di media: oggetti, disegni, fumogeni, luci, fenomeni naturali, dispositivi tecnici, video, audio, fotografie e installazioni. Dai lanci spaziali agli oggetti in scatola che potrebbero generare eventi reali, le sue visioni prendono vita: immagini non solo intrinsecamente legate alle parole, ma anche il risultato di un’accurata ricerca scientifica. La mostra, curata da Myriam Laplante, presenta opere emblematiche della sua poetica dell’infinito. Le installazioni sono dispositivi progettati non solo come semplici opere ma concepiti per produrre e moltiplicare il segno, per dipingere i venti, per attingere alla realtà.
Catalog of the exhibition Per dipingere i venti, per disegnare dal vero by Roberto De Simone, curated by Myriam Laplante at COLLI independent art gallery, Rome. “Capture a fleeting moment and transform it into infinity” could be the key to decipher the multifaceted work of Roberto De Simone. His work is poetic: sublime but rational, audacious, ironic and dazzling. Since the early eighties, he worked in an array of media: objects, drawings, explosives, lights, natural phenomena, technical devices, video, audio, photographs, and installations. From space launches to canned objects that could possibly generate real events, his visions came to life: images not only intrinsically linked to words but also the result of accurate scientific research. The exhibition, curated by Myriam Laplante, presents emblematic works of his poetics of infinity. The installations are devices designed not only as mere works but conceived to produce and multiply the sign, to paint the winds, to draw from reality.
