GREY STREET

 

Grey street, a thematic collective exhibition, hosted at Area35 Art Gallery, tries to create an inventory, necessarily biased, of a serie of artists and practices that share a Grey Attitude. Eleven different point of views which albeit similar , like as many different models, materialise a feeling that seems to invest the dominant notion of reality these past decades. In a world diffused with a wide plethora of stimuli, ideas and opposing forces which lead to a paradoxical anonymous and vague shade, grey becomes the most suited color to describe this condition. Grey the concrete, the cities, asphalt, cctv cameras, old magazines, photos , infrareds, clothes, vehicles, uniforms, jobs, the life pulse, the everyday, the blurry screen, factories, commuters , birth and death. Considered among the most anonymous and uniquely themed colors of the existing - symbol of marginalisation, boredom, degradation and uselessness - grey proves to be the bearer of a staggering chromatic and symbolic complexity that is awakened from time to time by the various poetic approaches that reactivate its alleged indifference.

Artists of this impassive Grey School - Renato Calaj, Luca Coser, Giulia Dall’Olio, Lorenzo Di Lucido, Debora Fella, Dritan Hyska, Andrea Mangione, Michele Parisi, Giovanni Pasini, Ettore Pinelli, Rolando Tessadri – confront this nihilistic grey, extracting an unexpected wealth and abundance from it. It is, therefore, an act of creation that is the best gloss for a nowadays which evolves in the constancy of the homologation, succeeding to integrate, digest and normalise even the most dramatic and violent shivers. In their hands this grey attitude, whether ossessive used or simply borrowed, assures a privileged point of view to interpret reality in its inmost and unexpressed recesses. If it is true that blending all pigments together creates a uncoloured matter , grey contains already all chromatic and creative possibilities.

If it is indeed true that by combining all the pigments a colorless paste is obtained, grey already contains all the chromatic and creative possibilities.

They create the best answer to a contemporary world enthralled in a monochrome standardisation that eventually incorporates, digests and normalizes even the most dramatic and violent aspects of our times.

Eleven artists and their works, therefore, all different but subtly similar in regards to the answer of the recent feeling that invests a prevailing condition of reality itself and a color, grey, which seems to be the most suitable to describe all of it.
