ENTE DA FARE
Giuseppe Buzzotta e Vincenzo Schillaci
Ente da fare develops the open potential of the restorative and decorative techniques. On view, there are five big painted boards, signs of a reflection on images and on their fruition. By studying the conservative and restorative treatments for musical instruments, Giuseppe Buzzotta fixes on paintings the gestures and lines evoking notes and sound, lying in coats of sealing wax. The same practice of stratification is at the core of Vincenzo Schillaci’s works; by overlapping the matter, the wooden boards are transformed into marbled figures, underlining the passage of time between the first and the last layer.
The artworks are the result of a careful consideration on the practice of making images and conceiving them. It is an analysis around the fruition and the modern use of images, as they are brought back to a sort of “sacredness”. In Vincenzo Schillaci’s Shells, wastes coming from the mold of a plaster casts gallery strengthen and embellish their “shells” in order to restore attention to their hidden signs.
