SECRETA - Pictorial secrets and sound secretions

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 23, 2013, 5:45 AM

Pictorial secrets and sound secretions
28-29-30 March 2013
The Castle Hostel, Atessa (Italy)

"No place is without a Genius", the ancients used to say. A statement well suited to spaces shaped by human ingenuity that have been able to stand up to the ravages of time by opposing the strength of a mysterious breath of life, a hidden force unknown to the same creators which infused it through the emotional brand of their lives. Just like microorganisms which, imprisoned for thousands of years in a state of hibernation within salt crystals, reproduce as they get back in contact with the external environment, so the memories, the vibes, the moral atmosphere of the time when the "genius loci", the soul of the place, proliferated into the rooms and in the interstices of the walls, awaken as soon as the aura of the first visitors of that architectural organism stimulates its invisible nerve endings.

The special event entitled "SECRETA" hosted in the tuff gallery of the ancient The Castle Hostel, a palace overlooking the homonymous square since 1565 in the medieval ward of Atessa in Abruzzo (Italy), is the new experimental solo show conceived by the "multimedianic" artist Alessandro Fantini. After the group shows of London, Rome and Los Angeles, he will be returning to exhibit in his native country, offering a blend of oil paintings based upon the theme of the emotive implications of the contemporary environmental dimension, with particular regard to the increasingly convulsive and restless nature of the local one.

From 28th to 30th of March, the "pictorial secrets and sound secretions", namely the paintings and electronic music composed by the artist himself, will try to evoke the "genius of the place", working as the aesthetic reagents in a collective experiment of "spiritual alchemy ", cocooned by the atemporal frame of the antique palace that has just reopened its halls to the public after a long period of restoration.
