Pietro-Manzo_fribourg-exhibition

 

ENG/ (…)Pietro Manzo’s works tries to reflect the sourroundings and visual impressions of our ever changing circumstances. These strong changes seem to be a caracteristic of our time and of course everything around us is in constant movement! We ourselves are effected by the creations we impose on our environment. The interaction between a space and what is happening inside that space is what interest for Manzo.

Are instability and incompletion a reflection of our time?

Using images of our environment and  our times he has tried to answer this question, by painting the mutation of urban spaces and often the total desolation of abandonaded buildings and building sites, he has tried to capture an answer.

The dominating perspectives and the linear stratification become the means to illustrate these  forces of transformation, this painted impression could de seen as a metaphor for a world in constant construction.

ITA/(…)il lavoro è una riflessione sul circostante, sul continuo mutare che caratterizza il nostro tempo. Tutto intorno a noi è in costruzione. Noi stessi siamo in continua trasformazione, il nostro corpo assume forme ed estetiche diverse. L’identità stessa, in quanto individuazione perde ogni punto di riferimento. L’instabilità e il non finito riflettono la nostra epoca? Il mio lavoro attraverso l’esperienza quotidiana ritrae il divenire degli spazi urbani. Prende in prestito l’efficacia della prospettiva e la stratificazione esecutiva per affermare la forza della trasformazione. Metafora che include tutti gli aspetti di un tempo in costruzione.

Pietro-Manzo_fribourg-stone

ENG/The work was created in a forest of Fribourg and It’s derived from pratices observed on places under construction. They bind some parts not yet stable during the building construction. During the exhibition there was written on the wall(left image) the address that led people to this place. In this case( right image) is bound a stone, a static element. This reversal was created to be  a symbolic element of a constriction that cities and places suffer during the continuous changes.

ITA/L’intervento è stato eseguito in un bosco di Fribourg e deriva da pratiche osservate nei cantieri edili. Si legano alcune parti non ancora stabili degli edifici durante la costruzione. Tra le opere esposte vi era scritto sulla parete(imm.I da sinistra) l’indirizzo che conduceva lo spettatore in questo luogo. In questo caso (II) a venir legata è una pietra-elemento statico- proprio questo rovesciamento vuole essere simbolico di una costrizione che anche le città e i luoghi subiscono durante i continui mutamenti.

ENG/The project was carried out for the exhibition Game over / Play again held in 2009 in a tile factory at Sieci (Fi), before its demolition. The ten paintings of different sizes, are an “archive” of places destined to disappear. The works recorded views of the interior of the factory, it is the memory of a daily experience, the trace of a personal experience that has lasted for three months in the factory. Here are some works made for the exhibition.
