closed Giuseppe Uncini. Realtà in equilibrio

Curated by: Giuseppe Appella

The show

After the solo exhibitions of Carlo Lorenzetti, Bruno Conte and Giulia Napoleone, the Galleria Nazionale celebrates Giuseppe Uncini, concluding the series of exhibitions Realtà in equilibrio, curated by Giuseppe Appella.
In 1982, for an exhibition at the Galleria Il Segno in Rome that included Lorenzetti, Napoleone, Conte, Aricò and Giuseppe Uncini, Fausto Melotti entitled "Realtà in equilibrio" the text published in a spreadsheet for the occasion. He considered the five artists "anchorites, far from the temptations of the world" that "see from the windows and know outside and prematurely what will be necessary for the construction of the art building" [...], companions in research, [...] companions in this that art requires, sacrifice and love. [...]. Not of mimes, these are some of the supporting stones of art ".
Through 57 sculptures and 30 drawings by Giuseppe Uncini, dated 1957-2008, the exhibition retraces the various stages of the artist's journey, marked by Terre, Cementarmati, Ferrocementi, Strutture spazio, Strutturespazio-ambienti, Mattoni, Terrecementi, Ombre, Interspazi, Dimore delle cose, Dimore e muri d’ombra, Spazi di ferro, Spazicementi e Tralicci, Muri di cemento, Architetture, Telai-Artifici.

It is enough to read the titles: from an initial Terra that corresponds to a normal landscape reminiscent of De Staël immediately poured into Rothko, and from a literary Il passo del gatto (1958), emblem of the illusory image of painting that wants to escape the object- framework and digs in the memories of the subsoil, the transition from primary chromatic materials, subtly evocative, to a single material, cement, is very rapid, which moves gestures and signs and equips them with iron raising armor (Primo Cementarmato, 1958-1959), regulating very heavy masses that, between an alphabet and a trellis, a dwelling and an epistylium, weave a seemingly impossible city (Architectures n. 206, 2006), so occupied the dreams of the futurists, of Gabo and Tatlin, of Vantongerloo, of Max Bill and Calder, Marino di Teana and Étienne Martin, Burri and Consagra, Milani and Chillida, Somaini and Sanfilippo.
