Artist Ivano Troisi (Salerno, 1984), one of the most promising names on the contemporary Italian art scene, fresh from the Rethinking Nature exhibition at the Madre museum in Naples, has been asked to create - as part of the 14th edition of the Città delle 100 scale Festival - a site-specific work entitled "Between the Light" for the National Archaeological Museum of Basilicata "Dinu Adamesteanu."
This is not the first time Troisi has been confronted with archaeological finds and, for that reason, he understands their importance and cultivates respect for them, fundamental principles of his poetics, based on the investigation, promotion and enhancement of the natural environment. The artist, will carry out historical and anthropological research on the area, leading to the production of a work that takes up the saying/keeping theme, starting from his own interpretation of philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein's famous phrase "On what one cannot speak, one must keep silent." The creative process will see him place himself in dialogue with the content of the museum, but also with the container itself.
Ivano Troisi. Born in Salerno (Italy), 1984. Lives and works in Rome (Italy).
