Raffaella Cortese is proud to present Marcello, a solo show by Marcello Maloberti, artist represented by the gallery since 1995. Continuing a sort of tradition, the gallery chooses to launch the opening of a new exhibition space with the presentation of a new project of Maloberti, entitled Marcello.

His artistic production reflects in a various and ironic way the multiple and conflicting aspects of the social reality in which we live, its variants, its interpreters, its moods. An eclectic artist, that through installations, often addressed in public spaces, establishes a direct empathy with the audience, while generating feelings of wonder and alienation. Author of dreamlike imagination – though  unequivocally rooted in the collective culture – Maloberti creates works that emerge thanks to their physicality and energy, and produce a spontaneous theatrical impact. read more

Continuing a sort of tradition, the gallery chooses to launch the opening of a new exhibition space with the presentation of a new project of Maloberti, entitled Marcello.

His artistic production reflects in a various and ironic way the multiple and conflicting aspects of the social reality in which we live, its variants, its interpreters, its moods. An eclectic artist, that through installations, often addressed in public spaces, establishes a direct empathy with the audience, while generating feelings of wonder and alienation. Author of dreamlike imagination – though  unequivocally rooted in the collective culture – Maloberti creates works that emerge thanks to their physicality and energy, and produce a spontaneous theatrical impact.

In the new exhibition space in via Stradella 4, Maloberti realizes a new project, based on a selection of texts written since 1990. The artist makes a minimal optical intervention, with four table-sculptures arranged asymmetrically opposed to a large writing on the wall, a kind of textual horizon, on the larger wall of the room. Each table provides the support base for as many books: ideal archives of suggestions, onomatopoeic words, rapid anecdotes, desires and dizzinesses, titles of the exhibitions already made – and still alive – or still to be performed. The four books are marked by the black line of the marker used by the artist.

Marcello marks an apparent surrender of the artist to the image. Maloberti chooses to set up a new piece within his artistic path by exploring the imaginative power of words, their ability to compensate the lack of images, creating a constantly evolving set.
