ongoing EMOTION

The show

More than twenty artists, more than twenty works, many of which are site specific: EMOTION takes the public on a journey of emotions so that they can feel many, many more.

Surprise, confusion, desire, joy, fear, anticipation, anguish, happiness, pride, excitement, nostalgia, admiration, relief, tranquility, embarrassment. How many emotions inspire an artist? And how many are retained within the work?

And what does a spectator feel in front of that work? And how many are maintained over time and how many change and how do they change? When dealing with emotions there are more questions than answers, there are always more emotions than certainties.

A three meter high mushroom welcomes and invites you to travel, it had already happened in a fairy tale, in another journey, in another world, in another wonder. This time the mushroom is by Carsten Höller and the journey is in art. Thus begins EMOTION, contemporary art tells of emotions, to continue with much more, with other emotions.


He continues with the amazement of finding himself in front of the very tall figures of Luigi Mainolfi, in the external cloister, walking on an ocean floor; in the disorientation of Piero Pizzi Cannella's imaginary cathedrals and in the wonder of his Camera Picta inspired by Raphael; with the enchantment of the light and sound refractions of the Northern Lights recreated by the interactive work of Alessandro Sciaraffa; with the attraction towards the haunted forest of the video installation by Masbedo (Nicolò Massazza and Iacopo Bedogni) or the hypnotic and concentric attraction of Paolo Scirpa's neon playscopes.

A journey of emotions that becomes relationship and interaction between visitors thanks to Gregor Schneider's environment; a universe of colors through the decomposable prisms of the Korean artist Kimsooja; a dreamlike microcosm of possible and impossible visions by Tony Oursler; the great superhero figures rethought by Adrian Tranquilli up to the site specific project by Nedko Solakov which brings back the dimension of narration in a witty, at times ironic, key.


And if the ceiling, the floor and the walls were surrounded by a forest of brambles and dragonflies by Pietro Ruffo, what emotion would you feel? What if you could walk among Luigi Ontani's Herms and feel part of them? And if Laure Prouvost's intent, with her video installation and large mechanical chandelier, was to make you feel heavenly ecstasy, would you abandon yourself? And what curiosity moves the visitor to explore, investigate and try to discover the most hidden meanings in Matt Collishaw's still lifes, also created thanks to artificial intelligence?

Eva Jospin puts her emotions into cardboard landscapes and architecture; Annette Messager lowers them from the ceiling, dedicating them to the human body, through photographs inside fishing nets, colored shapes and a large Pinocchio; the AES + F collective in what it defines as "social psychoanalysis" reveals and explores the values, vices and conflicts of contemporary global culture; Subodh Gupta uses objects to evoke memories and finally Paul Morrison, thanks to his neo-romantic and pop-naturalist drawings , leads into unexpected landscapes and emotions.
