At the beginning of the scourges and when they are over, there is always a bit of rhetoric. In the first case the habit is not yet lost, and in the second it has returned. Only at the moment of misfortune does one become accustomed to the truth, to silence (The Plague, Camus).
The artists and students of the upcoming third year of Painting and Sculpture and Installations of the Visual Arts department at RUFA have created works on the theme of truth and silence for this exhibition, works with which they participated in the ROME ART WEEK 2021 event. The theme was taken from a sentence in The Plague by Camus. It is a group exhibition that seeks its consistency on both the visual and mental levels.
13 works developed vertically, as a silent audience, watch us from the walls and from every side of RUFA Space. The artists have worked on the muted tones of composition and verticality, investigating the visual structure of silence. Like an astonished looking audience of patrons, videos, sculptures and paintings are arranged along the walls and in the perimeter.
We now see that the exhibition space alternates between wounds, burns, spaces of nature and spaces of mechanics, internal joys and alternate pains. There are fragile constructions that could crumble before our eyes (and perhaps they will), as tenuous as the certainties that are no longer there (and perhaps no longer necessary), standing like these long days that have left us waiting to watch. A collective work that resonates and meditates in a new way on the difficult times we spend and on those that have just passed.
The exhibition is open from 25 to 29 October from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm, via degli Ausoni 7. On 25 October at 5:00 pm there will be the vernissage.
In view of national health conditions and in compliance with Covid-19 safety regulations, access to the exhibition will be restricted: a maximum of 10 people will be allowed into the gallery at any one time, including artists and curators, in accordance with the Visitor’s Rules.
From 1 September until 31 December 2021, the so-called “green pass”will be required. The “green pass” or rather the “Green COVID-19 certificate – EU digital COVID certificate” was created at the proposal of the European Commission to facilitate the safe movement of citizens in the European Union during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is a digital and printable certification that contains a two-dimensional barcode (QR Code) and a qualified electronic seal. In Italy it is issued only through the national platform of the Ministry of Health.
The certification attests to one of the following conditions:
– having had the COVID-19 vaccination (in Italy it is issued both at the first dose and at the completion of the vaccination cycle);
– being negative to the rapid molecular or antigenic test within the last 48 hours;
– have recovered from COVID-19 within the last six months.
Individuals who have been declared exempt from vaccination for health reasons on the basis of appropriate medical certification do not have to present the green pass.
