Clamped like vines in the vegetal tissue of the homeland, and like vines stretched out to propagate through oblique twists. They are visual paradigms that, with narrative volition and technical imprudence, by nature unfold in the opposite sense to the impermanent character of widespread aesthetics: of these Romberg, in its 35th season, searches for the fossil traces, where the act of producing art has ceased to be an individual competence aimed at providing the keywords of a polymorphous actuality and has become a peripheral unit that aggregates impersonal utterances in the oscillations of global currents.
From an idea by Italo Bergantini, flanked by Daniele Zerbinati in the curation of the three personal exhibitions scheduled from September to February, the Parallel Vines exhibition is born. Sunday 27th September, Vincenzo Pennacchi will present Fairies, sixteen medium and large format works that the artist intends to bring to life within the volumic conflict between the walls and an imposing concave installation; immersed in the linearity of the exhibition space, the navel of an occult, subliminal, archaic order, it has inspired the biosystems and founding myths of a fantastic kingdom to the pen of Lorenzo Pennacchi.
The subsequent appointments, with Claudio Marini (6th December 2020) and Giorgio Galli (7th February 2021), will also be accompanied by an unpublished story by Lorenzo Pennacchi.
