How long is forever? Paolo Scirpa answers with his photos at the Gaggenau Hub in Milan
Paolo Scirpa is one of the most talented artist in the field of the “neon art”. Thanks to the luxury brand Gaggenau and to the non-profit project Cramum, the artist has now the possibility to show at the Gaggenau Hub in Milan his rare and unique photographic artworks. The exhibition is titled “Sconfinamento” (“Trespass” in English) is curated by the Art Director Sabino Maria Frassà and it will be open until the end of January 2020 in Corso Magenta 2 in Milan. In this exhibition alongside the famous neon sculptures the visitors can see Paolo Scirpa’s photographic works, too. This art cycle is called “Urban Projects” and it deceives the eye showing a Milan “as if” futuristic architects such as Antonio Sant’Elia had planned it.
“Sconfinamento” is meant to reflect about the infinite. It is a dimension man longs for without understanding it totally and with no possibility to get it. “How long is forever?” Alice asked the White Rabbit. Leading us through his world Paolo Scirpa, like the white rabbit, seems to answer: “sometimes, just one second”. The artist has never demanded or presumed to represent the infinite, he has simulated it, as he considers art as an instrument through which he can overcome reality and the natural-biological limits and bounds of the human being. If we analyze Paolo Scirpa’s artistic research as a whole, eternity and infinity appear to be only the reason, the beginning of the journey.
From November 21, 2019 to January 31, 2020, closed for Christmas from 20 December to 6 January.
