Description

The man who measures the clouds (1998) is rearranged on the terrace of the Madre museum, curated by Laura Trisorio, Melania Rossi and Andrea Viliani as part of the project To_form a collection, and presented at the same time as the Sensitive meetings project at the Capodimonte Museum, curated by Sylvain Bellenger and Laura Trisorio. The work is inspired by the statement that the ornithologist Robert Stroud made when he was released from Alcatraz prison, when he declared that he would henceforth be dedicated precisely to "measuring the clouds". In addition to the quotation, which places the work in a defined historical and scientific context, in this case the use of the self-portrait has a further biographical reference, as the work is a tribute to the artist's younger brother, a dreamer. died prematurely. The staging of a memorial absence that imposes itself as a sculptural presence becomes the metaphorical double of both the personalities represented, whose union generates an inter-individual energy that becomes vital movement, even in the static nature of the sculptural form. Also expressing the feeling of planning the impossible (precisely the attempt to measure a changing and inconstant entity like clouds), Fabre reflects on the very status of the artist's research, assimilated to the scientist's claim to cross the human limit of knowledge. As an artist and researcher Fabre constantly tries, in effect, to "measure the clouds", admitting and declaring with his work that the tension towards knowledge has insurmountable limits which, however, it is possible to approach and deal with precisely through experimentation, in which express the inexpressible without betraying it, as the artist himself declares, the intrinsic and founding human and universal beauty.
