Numero Cromatico presents Simultaneità, double solo show by Manuel Focareta and Dionigi Mattia Gagliardi, ninth event of GRAN FINALE.
The exhibited artworks are paintings from the series Test Verbovisivi (2015) by Dionigi Mattia Gagliardi and a series of PVC printed texts from the poetic anthologies Poembook (2014) and Pinder (2017) by Manuel Focareta.
The project focuses on the mutual practices and interests of the two artists as well as the potential of the relationship between image and text.
The research paths of both artists, even if with different aims, analyse the concept of expressive abstinence and the production of artworks through the use of procedures that actively involve the public.
In this exhibition, the public finds itself in a place where words and shapes, marks and typography coexist. The aim is that of creating images and reactions through stimuli that are different yet simultaneous.
The exhibition stands as the first attempt of the two artists to create a dialogue between images and texts, studying the effects that these produce on the viewers and researching potential future prospects.
This double solo show adds another important piece to the range of research projects carried out by Numero Cromatico, especially when taking into account the most recent neuroscientific discoveries that enable us to overcome the ancient and traditional dichotomy between the poet and the visual artist.
