Eduardo Herrera has already participated in three group exhibitions of the OGA, between 2019 and 2020 ('Conceptual Landscapes', 'Nudity', 'Love?'), with works in ceramics, photographs and videos. His work in these three media will also be present on this occasion, although with a definite predominance of his videos, and exactly from his art project 'Sensing'. Herrera's work is pervaded by human spirituality, and in which, in the words of Maria Rapagnetta on Herrera, "the artist measures himself against the constant thirst to explore the deepest layers of his own interiority". This time this work is intertwined with a photographic study for a performance never realized and entitled 'Sine', which Werther Germondari made in 1986 in the Sanctuary of the Beata Vergine della Consolazione, in the Republic of San Marino (a church built in 1967, designed by the architect Giovanni Michelucci). Germondari thus rediscovers in turn a work pervaded with a mysticism that over time has mixed and clashed with his much more often desecrating attitudes that characterize him, summed up very well in a solo exhibition of his entitled 'Tecniche Mistiche', also realized at Ospizio Giovani Artisti in 2013. Germondari also presents in the exhibition the video 'Alighiero', in which the search for the way back for a man lost in a forest becomes a brief but intense emotional occasion in the nature that surrounds him and in himself. The video is dedicated to Dante Alighieri, who knew about dark woods, on the 700th anniversary of his death.
