The show

On Monday 3 February the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art hosts Gregorio Botta's personal Just measuring unconsciousness and Maria Elisabetta Novello's Each Second is the last, dedicated to the memory of Lea Mattarella. Two verses of the same poem by Emily Dickinson have been chosen for two parallel exhibitions, which reflect on the fragility and transience of existence, themes dear to the two artists who, starting from a common horizon, reach different outcomes.

 

Just measuring uncosciousness. Gregorio BottaMeasuring unawareness: like Tarkovsky's Stalker, the artist is a land surveyor who traces the boundaries and trajectories in an unknown field. Gregorio Botta, taking advantage of the gallery spaces, builds a path in four stations, one for each room, almost an existential journey.

It starts from the gravitas room: dozens of glass rods appear on the wall on which stones are in an unstable and precarious balance. This wave of stones seems to end on Sisyphus, a mobile sculpture that welcomes at the ends of a thin glass bar - which turns on itself - a heavy stone and a light bowl of wax.
