A NOTE FROM THE CURATOR
by Alberto Salvadori and Luigi Fassi
The peacock protagonist of the video Fragile embodies the artist, with its feathers that, once the season of love is over, are destined to fall, and with its changing colours like the surface of the works it creates, in continuous metamorphosis in their dialogue with time, with the individual spectator. A symbolic animal that seems to have come out of the ancient paintings housed in the rooms of the Galleria Sabauda in Turin. The Masbedo transforms it into an apparition, in an epiphany of the sacred value of art and at the same time of its fragility.
Fragile strength, which precisely in its vulnerability contains the sensitivity and delicacy needed to be able to feel and see beyond the visible. Fragility constitutes the condition for listening and encounter: intuition is sudden and poignant illumination, a fleeting manifestation of an invisible and an unspeakable that reveal themselves without obstacles.
