"Painting is a silent poetry and poetry is a blind painting", said Leonardo Da Vinci.
It is in this his idea that "Spolvero. The revealed Cenacle" finds place: presence and absence, visible and invisible, dusting and relief.
A circular system that subtracts the work and then returns it through collective and multi-sensory use.
A multisensory work that overturns the perspective of the "Cenacle", exchanging the role between those who see and those who do not see.
Created by the artist Lucrezia Zaffarano, the graphic designer Matteo Carbonara and the film maker Andrea Sartori, the project is also a tribute to what is never seen, but exists even before the work "visible": dust is in fact the preparatory drawing, that "before the work" which was chosen for the correlation with the Braille alphabet. The dusting is already the image that will never be visible, that "first" always present, an absent presence.
The installation is among the winners of the "Milano da Vinci" competition, launched in December 2018 with the aim of rewarding the best ideas of young creative designers under 35 able to tell the innovative spirit of Leonardo da Vinci through the use of new media . The winning team of the competition was able to take advantage of the precious support of the Civic School of Cinema Luchino Visconti, partner of the competition, whose teachers accompanied the transformation of the project from an artistic idea to a multimedia installation, thus enhancing its expressive potential.
The exhibition "Spolvero. The Cenacle" revealed is made by the Italian Accenture Foundation, Fondazione Stelline and the Municipality of Milan.
