Approdi. Mauro Pipani
Spanish writer Josè Saramago wrote: “when the traveler sat in the sand of the beach and declared “there is nothing more to see”, he knew it was not true. You have to see what you have missed the first time, see again what you already saw, see in the springtime what you saw in the summer, in the daylight what you saw at night, see the sun shining where you saw the rain falling. You have to go back to the footsteps already taken, to go over again or add fresh ones alongside them. You have to start the journey anew. Always”. Mauro Pipani is a traveler. An inner world traveler who with strength and lightness creates images that convey memories, memories, narratives. A poetic feeling that tells the world through some of its traces stratified in a contamination of signs, images, words or silences. A collapse of time and space. A set of fragments, remains, tracks. A minimalist sign that speaks of indeterminacy, fade, lyricism, sacredness, lightness and melancholy. A poetry looking for a fixed point in a changing world. A poetry asking and requiring awareness, reflection, introspection. It takes time to go beyond the everyday superficiality with which we observe the world and that allows us to discover that the black and white colors are not absolute but have infinite shades (from the text written by Raffaele Quattrone in the exhibition catalogue).
