The Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation presents, from 3 November to 26 February, Eyelids, Towards Evening (the eyelids, towards evening), a personal exhibition by Victor Man, curated by Eugenio Re Rebaudengo.
"Eyelids, Towards Evening - writes Alessandro Rabottini in his critical text accompanying the exhibition - collects nineteen works created by Victor Man over the last ten years and offers, for the first time, an exclusive focus on portrait and self-portrait genres , genres that have assumed a profound relevance, over time, within his pictorial practice.
Together with images of the artist himself, these paintings contemplate portraits of people who have entered his life, as much affection close to him as encounters from the past: thus, an interior and autobiographical narration is composed that manifests an essential trait of Man's work. , or the notion that the most intimate matter of art is individual existence together with its poetic transfiguration.
Immersed in a light that is most often crepuscular, these figures are caught in absorbed and contemplative attitudes, or portrayed in moments of abandonment and affectionate proximity: they seem to inhabit a deeply human time and space but, in the meantime, withdraw from the current world. . "
