The show

The exhibition "Aria, Fiori, Sale. Works from the Collections of the Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art" is a new path through a selection of new acquisitions and important works from the collections of the Museum by artists such as Ettore Spalletti, Aslı Çavuşoğlu, Fausto Melotti , Gilberto Zorio, Luciano Fabro, Marco Bagnoli, Joan Jonas, Ingela Ihrman and Jannis Kounellis.

Belonging to different generations and cultures, the artists presented demonstrate an attention to natural elements, the environment, the organic life of plants and the transformation and memory capacities of materials. The works on display welcome visitors by involving them in a path in which multiple stories are intertwined, from personal memories that transform objects to collective stories, from the impalpable and atmospheric essences of colors to their meaning and, again, from the magic of nature to its potential. danger.

Ettore Spalletti 's poetics is largely based on color, used by the artist in the state of pigment, with a slow process that involves the preparation of a mixture with plaster and glue and the subsequent drafting on the surfaces that make up the work. In the sculptural installation Anfora Bacile, Vasi , 1982, Spalletti displays primary forms using colors such as white, gray, blue and pink. The artist claims that blue is basically an atmospheric color. A color that does not exist as a surface, but lives as an environmental condition that we have around us. He also explained that he uses pink thinking about the complexion, a constantly changing color, which never finds its fixity because it feeds on moods, on its spiritual conditions, on its intelligence.

Aslı Çavuşoğlu analyzes the ways in which disciplines such as archeology, ethnography and anthropology tell historical events. The collection of partial objects or objects deemed unsuitable and deliberately excluded from academic approaches, together with the observation of the environment that characterizes specific conflict zones, are among the methods identified by Çavuşoğlu to express a different point of view.
