DIEGO PICCINI DA TODI | INCARNATION 4
Information on the activity
March 6, 2014 to April 26, 2014
We are facing the end of a major cycle ... We are now more than ever literally frozen at the crossroads. We have to choose right now! Either we continue to exist in the same way, or we simply decide to begin a new humanistic revolution, global, wise, eco-friendly and as far as possible ... peaceful, without expecting anything from politics.
All these themes covered by Diego Piccini da Todi during this exhibition, are direct or indirect metaphors of our destinies imbrications in this exhausting commotion within the " Polis ", with a constant reference to a similar pandemonium experienced in the terrifying sequence of Bardos reported by Buddhism Dzogchen.
" Receptacles " bodies , spiritual " vehicles " merging together ... in fact already inextricably linked, they amalgamate and multiply , absorb and reject themselves, dissolve and tirelessly repeat the same medley. Our expectations, fears and illusions are vanishing in a time that is no longer ours, a prodigious canvas spoiled by an imminent disintegration.
So, what will happen to us ?
Throughout Incarnation IV, Politeia, the artist presents until late April 2014 ( just like the Improbable ? exhibition which is partially related to it ) a series of drawings of different sizes, giant triptychs, artworks and studies entirely devoted to all the current struggles underway in many communities in the Samsâra, and showing anyway the continuing and indisputable power of drawing which can still today sublimate both " sacred and profane ” pathways.
