Enrico Vezzi: L’ordine immaginario (The Imaginary Order)
Curated by Angel Moya Garcia
Until February 26, 2023

In the piece L’ordine immaginario, natural elements, historical and political texts, and artifacts from various cultures are arranged in a constellation that moves in accordance with how history has affected us rather than in a sequential or predetermined order but rather in accordance with the ideas that come to mind as the physical work is being built. A counter-narrative of how humans interact with nature encourages us to go on a physical journey, think about how each of us interacts with the current state of the world, and reflect on current events in order to identify where humanity has historically gone astray. A study of our tendencies today, their evolution, and how they influenced how we think about society and culture today. Read more.

In San Miniato, Enrico Vezzi was born in 1979. (Pisa). He earned his psychology degree from the University of Florence in 2005. Vezzi has been interested in the interplay between collective history and individual memory ever since he made his artistic debut. In all of his works, he makes an effort to show how historical memory is related to the locations to which it is attached. All of his works demonstrate the creative process and attempt to inspire and create a discourse that leads to change.

Cecilia Bertoni: Danze vuote (Empty Dances)
Curated by Angel Moya Garcia
Until February 26, 2023

A visual poem that is also a tribute to Samuel Beckett’s work and to his literary word, pared down to the utmost of its expressive potential, is brought to life by four panels suspended in the blackness. In a poetic universe hovering between immateriality and incarnation, the linens and fabrics that make up the installation become the surface on which are imprinted textures of small spaces, pictures of locked-out or dancing figures, and words engraved in relief like scars. This is done through the use of embroidery. Read more.

Cecilia Bertoni was born in 1961 and lived abroad while growing up in Italy. Her research focuses on poetry, music, the architecture of the body and space in motion—or not—as well as their dynamics. These subjects play out in the scenes that exist in the spaces between life and death, between dreaming and waking, like shards of memory and longing: the absence of what has passed away and what is still to come.
