BACK in BLACK presents a series of works in which the sensory interest in form is never separated from the symbolic or metaphorical level.
Forms and meanings refer to each other, dialoguing and developing, through sculpture, video performance and photography, in an evocative setting that alludes to the Zeitgeist, the spirit of the times we are living through. A spirit of darkness, between war, economic crisis, ecological disasters, populism and “videocracy”. A “return to black” as a chromatic metaphor of our contemporaneity, which stimulates reflections necessary to discover and perhaps even modify the characteristics of the world in which we live.
