MIMESIS is an exhibition with diverse passions, involving multiple actors, including the Institute of Technology of New York, Department of Architecture and Design, already a partner of HoperAperta in 2022 and 2023, and which is based - similar to the events held in recent years in Milan, Genoa, Barcelona (ES), Soglio (CH) - on a dialogue among different disciplines, creating a synergistic relationship among the players in the arts scene.


Mimesis: paraphrasing the Platonic Republic, it could be argued that any object designed, imagined or created, when reproduced in an image with different potential uses, presupposes three different degrees of approximation: a point of relation, a point of transformation, a point of representation. An ideal form, completely independent from its functions constitutes a first point of Mimesis.


Mimesis therefore indicates a process of identification, a symbiotic action between two image-forms of different nature. For example, Mimesis can be generated in the spatio-temporal relationship of an object, rather than in the relationship between light and movement finally in the relationship created between the object-image and its ideal staging, through different forms of theatricality. The staging of the object, the idea of theater produced through an active imagination, transcending its practical function, transforms into a work of art, a work conceived as the theatricalization of an idea, a synthesis process that we could define as form/image.
