The decadence of Palermo in a Milan exhibition: Manfredi Beninati, 10 September 2018
Manfredi Beninati is an artist coming from Palermo, who has been exposed in the various Biennale all over the world (Venice 2005 and 2009), Liverpool, Mardin, Istanbul. The inspiration of his last work, presented in Milan, are the two movies that have been shot by the artist in a Liberty house of Palermo, giving a sense of light decadence which is the same of the Sicilian town.
Now. In Milan, guest of the space Galleria Poggiali in Foro Bonaparte 52, the artist produces an installation visible from the road or through a narrow corridor inside the gallery. Milan installation is the step number two: number one took place in Palermo, where people had to investigate on an alleged crime. The furnishing, with a simple writing desk and a bed, the room looks like the artist’s home and the works appear on the walls and on the writing desk.
Find the clue! That’s the message the artist seems to give! The spectator is involved in the game. The exhibition will begin on September the 13th and will end December the 14th. The title is “If this is a Saturday”.
