Organized by the Consulate General of Italy in London, the exhibition explores the concept of Synthesis, namely the combination of components and elements that generates wholesome unity.
Human beings are the contemporary synthesis of cultures and events stratified with time.
Synthesis examines this concept through the sculptures created by Vincenzo Muratore in London and the artist’s architectural works in the Belice Valley (Sicily) - at the Community Trinità della Pace, in Contessa Entellina (Palermo).
The photography section is dedicated to 8 Sicilian towns destroyed by an earthquake in 1968, and anthropologically cancelled by the subsequent reconstruction: Sambuca di Sicilia, Menfi, Sciacca,Contessa Entellina, Santa Margherita Belice, Montevago and Poggioreale.
50 years after the earthquake, Muratore’s works present a personal, aesthetic and anthropological reflection on cultural stratification and the process of transformation of public places. In the face of destruction, banality and brutality, in “Synthesis” he offers inspirations for new visions to share with these communities.
Opening December 6th at 6 pm.
Born in 1985, the Italian sculptor, painter and designer Vincenzo Muratore sees arts as a way to stimulate a deep connection with themselves and the beauty of life. He has redesigned and rebuilt hermitages, churches and libraries from abandoned buildings in rural areas of Sicily, exhibited in prestigious biennals and has been involved in several solo exhibitions. Living and working in London from 2017, Muratore has continued producing artistc projects on topics like migration, disabilty, introspection.
