DIREZIONI by Federico Pavano. September 1st. - November 1st. 2018
Text by Giulia Giambrone and Federico Pavano.
Pavano’s gif-artwork conceived for the Widget Art Gallery is an explicit reference to the invisible, but somehow perceptible and verifiable dimensions in which the souls are meant to reside.
Here dimensions are nothing that directions to travel both in the physical and sentimental space. The awareness of possibilities increases depths allowing to follow unexplored paths.
WAG's virtual extent is subordinated to the inner space but simultaneously it is objective because of the geometry of the room-box that breaks up, changing its setting.
The human gaze of the head, literally abandoned into a sort of metaphysical floor transforms the virtual setting into the tangible one.
Pavano & Giambrone are both students in Visual Arts.
Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket (suitable for all mobile platforms). Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.
