The exhibition Effemeridi del Giardino collects the main series of works that Andrea Fogli (Rome, 1959) has created since 2002, drawing inspiration from nature and, in particular, from the plant world. The fulcrum of the exhibition is represented by the Garden, where coming out of ourselves, from the enclosure of the human, we find ourselves in harmony with the rhythm, the beauty and the otherness of nature and the sky.
Of this Garden the artist follows the "donated images", especially minimal and inconspicuous, like those he encounters during his "intra muros" walks. As the artist suggests, the word Effemeridi is evoked to indicate "daily", ephemeral and unpredictable apparitions: "I had to try to enter this Garden, or Kingdom, on the opposite side, where there is a forest, without doors and neither indications, and where you can only follow tracks, go backwards, or rely on chance, on the intuition of an instant that falls on your head ». At the center of the exhibition, concretely and ideally, there are the 59 small and polymaterial raw lands of the Effemeridi del Giardino cycle modeled day after day, from January 19th to March 18th 2019, in different places each time, mixing the elements encountered in the clay and collected while walking; each of the "grains" is accompanied by the photo taken in situ and by a diary page.
