The "wonder" becomes form, observed Goethe, considering how the spontaneous feeling of admiration aroused by the investigation and by an unexpected and exceptional experience, in transforming itself into an image, approached the knowledge of oneself and of the world and precisely from this premise the photographic survey of the plant world exhibited in the gallery. To a field of vision that appears overwhelming in everyday life, to the point of representing an obstacle to experience and understanding of reality, Ascani and Nicolini here oppose a way in which situations and phenomena can finally appear intelligible. The shooting techniques, expanding the perception far beyond the natural limits of the senses and in particular of sight, in reducing the investigation space to a minimum, open to a perspective in which the various singularities are again identifiable and classifiable.

In short, there is faith in the idea that the rules of everything reside in the detail and above all that the plant world is the purest observatory for contemplation and understanding of the world in its entirety.

The images of "Morphogenesis" are fascinating for their formal completeness and narrative design but also for their speculative intent which, finding support in the fragmentation of complexity, reveals broad paths of interpretation of the biological environment in representing it as a work of art and a possible model of existence.

On the occasion of the Diciassettesima Giornata del Contemporaneo AMACI, MADE4ART will have an opening on Saturday 11 December from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m..
