Alessandro Neretti, detto Nero
Enamelled earthenware, third firing gold, video, color, sound
The work received the Unique Prize at the XXVI Contemporary Ceramics Competition of Grottaglie in 2019 with the following motivation:
“ Through a dialectical relationship between ceramics and a contemporary language (video), the artist reflects on the Mediterranean; highlighting a disenchanted and ironic look on the iconography of classical sculpture, with affinities linked to a “mythological” and conceptual culture. Furthermore, by updating the relationship with multimedia, the artist discusses the future of the ceramic language, being also a profound connoisseur of the Faenza tradition. "
