Shifting in continual movement
in relation to a fixed place
in relation to an observer
who only passes by
the point of departure.
In January and February, Choisi presents “Viaggio” (Journey), a compilation of twenty plates, realised by Mimmo Paladino with mixed media techniques (etching, aquatint, inkjet, copperplate engraving, woodcut and collage), on poems by Nanni Balestrini.
This artistic project was implemented thanks to the initiative of the editor Luigi Berardinelli, Verona, from 2004 to 2006.
The compilation is contained in a cardboard suitcase. The partnership between the artist and the poet for “Viaggio” was powerful. Words and images amalgamate and conduct the viewer on a varied and engaging trail: “The basic idea was to tackle a series of white sheets in the same way you might undertake a journey, stopover by stopover, experience by experience.”
