“Roberto Papini Metamorfosi del rifiuto” exhibition

Un quadro di Roberto Papini

JULY 20 – AUGUST 28, 2016
Ancona's "Omero" Tactile State Museum at the Mole Vanvitelliana
Summer festival "Sensi d'Estate 2016"
Inauguration: 20th July, 2016 at 6.30 p.m. Free admission.

The exhibition inherits the artist’s continuous production from 2011 till nowadays with artworks for which an extenstive use of artistically recycled wasting matters was employed.
A versatile exhibit of shapes, matters and colours resulting from the eclectic work of the Ancona based artist, set up in dialog with the artwork “L’Italia riciclata” by Michelangelo Pistoletto, the Arte Povera spokeperson.

The exhibit curator, Massimo Di Matteo, in collaboration with Walter Paoletti, wanted to homage the freshness of the last work of the ninty-years-old artist: "The peculiarities that emerge from the on focus Papini’s artworks are the unconventional creativity, the constant irony, the imagination and the clever playfulness, with the senses fulfillment reached through the tactile approach. Moreover, it is the artist’s proof of life, considered as a preserved good, looking like a possible and precious viaticum, that moves the audience."

An exhibition where waste and small shards turn out to be the main characters: Papini's spieces become "the bearer of an alternative harmony or of the artist’s universal mysticism and symbols of a retrievable and collectable humanity".
