“SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING BORROWED”
3 February – 4 March 2017
Based on the practice of articulation and reinterpretation that has characterised his artistic activity, Add Fuel presents in “Something old, something new, something borrowed” a staging of an intimist nature arranged in a type of idealised and stylised domestic setting – part genuinely cosy, part openly satirical –, that suggests a narrative of decorative contours that aggregates a multiplicity of references, iconographies, and signs which, in one way or another, have contributed towards shaping his personal and artistic identity. Inviting the viewer to enter a space charged with symbolic elements, from the more obvious to the more covert, that configure the multiple realities and readings which give life to the artist's personal universe, “Something old, something new, something borrowed” essentially speaks of personal records and comforts, of the past and the present, of what was and what is – a series of reflections that convey a repertoire of emotions, interests, and stories particularly important to the author: distant family recollections, but also recent intimate memories; pleasant reconnections with domesticity after long periods of travel in the real world, but also disconnections and ironic provocations with the virtual world of social media; a long relationship with the universe of animation and video games, but also another with themes of classical representation from the history of art.
