Nicola Vinci. Testimoni silenti / Silent witnesses
IAGA Contemporary Art is glad to present to the public the second solo exhibition signed by Nicola Vinci (Castellaneta,1975) in the gallery own venue, entitled Testimoni silenti / Silent witnesses.
The exhibition project exhibited on this occasion is in reality, a double exhibition, in fact, two novel photographic series, which arose from the different suggestions experienced in the same place, are exhibited. The choice to present to the audience both cycles is dictated by the desire to bring to life the experienced experience of the artist who, after some time from the first project, returns to the same house to create the second one, thus discovering new details, new impressions, new thoughts and therefore new inspirations. In the same way, the consumer sees the two series, goes back to his/her own life at the mercy of his/her thoughts – partly internalizing what he/she saw, partly forgetting it and partly interpreting it – and develops a complete personal reflection. The same catalogue, being double-faced, highlights how these two projects are actually two sides of the same coin, with the same purpose, both being an invitation not to forget. The artist observes the house of a lonely man who has unwittingly become the subject of rumours and indiscretions from the inhabitants of the small town (Castellaneta, also hometown of the artist himself), stories that the artist asks us to imagine through his photographs, leaving room for fantasy.
