Supernova
Birth to Life | Vita alla
Vita


Opening: Thursday, September 7th at
7pm

Following his artistic residency at the Zhou
Brothers Art Center in Chicago and the great success of his anthological
exhibition in Reggio Emilia, Enrico Magnani presents a collection of works never
seen before at the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago from September 7 to
October 6, 2017.

“Supernova. Birth to Life – Vita alla Vita”
is the title of this exhibition, which features 13 big size acrylic paintings,
all of which were completed on a multilayered support of cardboard and aluminum
in 2017. At no stage of their creation have these works been touched by the
artist’s hands, brushes or other instruments. Throws of air and water diffuse
the color.

The artist finds
inspiration in the nuclear explosions that characterize the end of a star’s
life, the Supernova, a symbol of death and rebirth, an emblem of the cyclic
nature of the universe. As stated in the catalog, “In these works, the
perfectionof the geometric lines of the triangle, the circle, and the cross
dialogue with the chaos of the explosions of color, creating a balance between
order and disorder. These geometries are part of the cultural and spiritual
heritage of humankind, of that essence which, recalling Plato, transcends matter
existing only in the world of ideas”.

“Through an explosion of colors, the
geometry of lines and shapes, dancing reflections of light and shadows,” adds
Alberta Lai, the Director of the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, “the
artist transmits to the viewer cosmic primordial energy, an impulse to rejoice
in the cycle of life and the yearning for continual renewal. The invitation is
therefore to immerse oneself in the aesthetic-sensory experience, but also in
the magical-mysticism that the exhibition “Supernova” by Enrico Magnani
allows”.

The exhibition, sponsored and organized by
the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago under the patronage of the City of
Reggio Emilia, will open on Thursday, September 7th at 7pm. The Consul General
of Italy in Chicago Giuseppe Finocchiaro will be present at the opening.
The
gallery of the Italian Cultural Institute is open to the public Monday through
Friday from 9am to 1pm and from 2-5pm. Entrance is free
