The show

«The sun is a star that marks the path towards fair and sustainable development». Harald Szeemann

Against the backdrop of a year that the MAN of Nuoro has dedicated to the dialogue between art and architecture, after the homage to the Odessa staircase and the workshops with the architecture universities of Cagliari, Alghero and Palermo, a new, specifically designed project is now taking shape for the spaces of the museum. The exhibition Il Resto dell'Alba was born from a theoretical comparison between the artist Patrick Tuttofuoco, the museographer curator Maddalena d'Alfonso and the architect Giovanni de Niederhäusern, vice-president of Pininfarina Architettura. Il Resto dell'Alba is an enveloping work that interprets the new frontier of the virtual by giving a physical body to digital hypertechnology.


The art space, in fact, is seen as an experiential place generated with virtual prototyping tools, where space and public integrate and activate each other, looking at the time of art: on the one hand the historical, past, ideally represented from a Nuragic sculpture, with all its mythical and absolute implications at the same time, as an eternal sign of an iconic presence of our origins, "where we come from", our archaic heritage; on the other hand, that of the digital future, the "where we are going" symbolized by the incorporeal and auroral imagery of the epiphanic light of a double sun, a perspective and, at the same time, a new genesis, inspired by the classic iconography of the rising sun, of anarchist origin, hope of a bright future, allegory of regeneration and a new sense of man's inhabitation on earth, as theorized by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Bruno Taut or Martin Heidegger. All this is the basis of a powerful and utopian design form, a work that can be traversed on an allegorical journey, where the experience is sublimated into the dimension of the symbol.


The environment designed with generative parametric design tools is entirely made of aluminum cut with a technique called mesh clustering, to optimize the use of the material, numerical control manufacturing and dry assembly. This will allow, at the end of the exhibition, to dismantle the work and reuse the material in the recycling chain. The double sun is an object-form composed of the incipient sphere and its double, which is also a luminous shadow, an inconceivable short circuit on the question of the source of light and heat.
