Paolo Piscitelli
 
Born in Venaria in 1971, Piscitelli lives and works in Turin, where he emerged during the mid nineties. His work finds expression in installations
that use sculpture, drawing, video and photography. Piscitelli tries to open up the definition of the finished work from both a temporal and spatial
point of view. He uses conceptual, audio and visual stimuli to go beyond the apparently defined boundaries of his works.
 
 
 
Gianni Caravaggio
There isn’t any difference between construction and content *
 
The research of Gianni Caravaggio is to materialize an art work that is fenomenologicaly open. He does not present the result of the creative process
but the creative process itself: The formative gesture is a metaphore of creation. In that perspective Caravaggio defines a vision of time that is metamorphic
and transmutable. His work forms a temporal body: “Reality seems to me to be hiding its possible temporal dynamics. The perception and conception of
reality through time become fluid forms of thought in action. It is not a question of documenting or illustrating or projecting but a matter of contemplation.
My work is not a representation of the world as it is but a new perspective from which to see it: a sugar cube, a grain of salt or a seed become the stimulus
of creative reality.” His work  amplifies these incentives creating a relationship between  the observed object and the touched object , the sensation and the
"nomination", the portion and the whole. Every particle of space wants to exist into a kind of Zenoan concept of space and time which simultaneously
extends, grows, contracts  and transmutes itself, creating a metamorphic body.
 
*inspired by Giorgio Giorgio Agamben, ‘L’uomo senza contenuto’, Quodlibet, Macerata, 1994
 
 
“Tempo drugato”
The video exhibited, also entitled “Tempo Drogato”, is a specific search into circular overlapping waves that are formed by raindrops on the water surface.
It creates disorientation and confusion between perception and reality
