Antonio Biasiucci

Ex Voto. This unpredictable period (is it really?) that we are experiencing, caused by a virus transmitted to humans by a small wild animal, has in fact reduced our existence. A small bacterium undermines our certainties, our horizon of continuity, calls into question our concept of life and death by bringing them back to their immanent (and transcendent) reality, continuously operating, to their natural sacredness. It brings them back to the essential values that have always been fundamental in the works of the great artists. The hope is the change in our relationship with nature that has now become, like art, often only exploitation, entertainment, increasingly rarely seen and listened to as an existential measure, as an exchange, as a relationship, as a comparison that can guide us to the distinction between what is ephemeral and what is free and fundamental.
