Metaphysical experiences between light and space
Nanda Vigo. Light Project
Palazzo Reale, Milan - Until September 29th 2019
The conflict/harmony between light and space has always been the central themes of Nanda Vigo, architect and artist who collaborated with Lucio Fontana Piero Manzoni, Enrico Castellani and Gio Ponti. “The retrospective in Palazzo Reale in Milan opens the visitor's gaze to the contemporary, and offer a precious opportunity to meet the experimental languages that have characterized the artist's expressive research ", said Filippo Del Corno, Councilor for Culture of the City of Milan.
Light, transparency and immateriality are the elements that constitute the Vigo’s work and the same environment inhabited by the human being, and of which the chronotope is its artistic concretization.
The term chronotope means space-time, and in physics refers to Einstein's theory of relativity, and indicates the four-dimensional space (three spatial coordinates plus time) that highlights the link between spatial and temporal measurements.
Lights, glasses, metal structures are the elements that the artist uses to create metaphors of lightness, mutation, the spiritual immateriality of art and its perception.
