Z2O Galleria | Sara Zanin is pleased to present Marco Maria Giuseppe Scifo’s solo show entitled Habitat.
Two years after his first solo show, Running Glance, the artist presents a new cycle of works that aims to conceive an organic and complete discourse on a landscape that assigns actual and cultural horizons to build a new and acute reflection on world of life.
In a world of ruins, recovery is a product of healing by means of aesthetics that build the necessary exit from the current apathy.
Divided into four platforms, in four critiquing places, in four projects (works in progress) that articulate themselves in the three spaces of the gallery, the design created by Marco Maria Giuseppe Scifo directs the gaze of the viewer in order to reactivate the capacity for global analysis concerning the existence of the self and the species.
The four exhibited projects (Globo pentacisdodecaedro, MonsGibel, Habitat – Molecolare and In Nubibus), are characterized by their intention to act in the environment with poetic and delicate intervention. They create valuable access to a meditative process that returns to consider the human being as part of a single living organism in a habitat that is a complete and integral space. The artist proposes the language and concept of 'locus et logos' in its sense of journey, a journey that highlights the need to recombine (and reconsider) two distinctly distant worlds.
