Pompeii is still a place of contemporary life.
After the experiences of Mitoraj and Picasso that have sealed the image of the ancient city as a place of dialogue between different languages and different epochs, Pompeii is back as a container and promoter of the art of the present and this time with particular regard to the Campania territory and Its artists.
With this spirit, the site will host from 23 June 2017 to 23 May 2018 the works of the artist Angelo Casciello, in the CASCIELLO POMPEI exhibition.
Twelve sculptures, partly made specifically for this exhibition, placed on the terrace of the Antiquarium which welcomes the Temple of Eolo, Flower and Solo; At the Imperial Villa that will host Apollo, Totem and Visions of Bacco and still along the Ginestre Boulevard with the Three Graces, a triptych made of painted steel, Cyclope, Sound, Sleeping, the latter already exhibited in 1998 on occasion Of the great exhibition set up at the Royal Palace in Naples. Sculptures are signs of silent dialogue with the past through which the artist expresses identity with the land of origin, with its history, with the value it takes in contemporaneity.
The exhibition is a journey between history and contemporaneity, where in Pompeii the breath of history is not just about its tragedy, but its eternal life in form, from capitals to statues to cornices, to the walls of architectural structures and today Comparison with Casciello's works by the extraordinary environmental plastic and architectural power.
Volumetric iron works, in the natural state or paintings, robust metallic structures alternating with thick and monolithic totemic and deeply archaic masses. The harsh hardness of the iron is associated with the leakage of small branching branches of metal, which are designed to collect drops of metaphoric dew.
The exhibition proposes a reflection on the revealed city and the time that has made it an eternal image and offers a moment of reflection on the role of the languages of the art of our time.
