EUGENIO PERCOSSI / Christmas 07
vernisaj 5 decembrie / 18h00

5-30 decembrie / Galeria Noua / Str. Academiei nr 15

„Fiind copil indaratnic am vrut sa-mi bat joc de Craciun, si de toate simbolurile sale zaharoase, pomul impodobit si caldura casei parintesti. Fotografiile documenteaza realitatea: orasul dupa noaptea de Craciun, brazii ramasi fara podoabele specifice, fara simboluri si fara utilitate, aruncati. In video distruge intr-un mod cinic casa bunicii, casa calduroasa si vesela a bunicii, in timp ce White Christmas isi canta banalitatile sale.“

EUGENIO PERCOSSI s-a nascut in 1974 in Avezzano (L’Aquila, Italy), iar acum traieste si lucreaza la Praga.
Preocuparile artistice ale lui  Eugenio Percossi se invart in jurul memoriei si capacitatii acesteia de a genera iluzii. Obsesiile personale si colective, nepotrivirea, cunoasterea lucida a goliciunii si nesigurantei vietii devin subiectele sale de introspectie, si asupra carora incearca sa atraga atentia privitorului prin creatiile sale.
Pictura, fotografie, video – opera sa exploreaza factorul temporal, capacitatea sa inevitabila si incontestabila de a transforma oameni, obiecte si mai ales situatii.

ENGLISH VERSION

EUGENIO PERCOSSI born in 1974 in Avezzano (L’Aquila, Italy), lives and works in Prague.
Eugenio’s research finds its inspirational principles in memory and illusion. The personal and collective obsessions, the sense of inadequacy, the lucid cognition of emptiness and uncertainty of life become subjects on which the artists question himself, upon which he invites the audience to reflect in a disillusioned and rational way.
Paintings, photos or videos, his artworks investigate the merciless and systematic logic of the time factor, its unavoidable power to transform things, situations, the course of events.
