The “Marisa and Mario Merz. A pencil point can surpass consciousness exhibition” is enriched with the presentation of three new works by the artists Richard Long, Giulio Paolini and Remo Salvadori.
Marisa and Mario Merz is an unprecedented exhibition project, curated by Mariano Boggia, which presents the work of Marisa and Mario Merz in the unusual light of the times.
For the first time in the Fondazione’s spaces, Marisa and Mario’s work meets in a unified path, almost as if to recreate the dialogical dimension, the intense and profound, yet constant exchange in their work, while maintaining individual points of view.
The title of the exhibition is an explicit quotation of a phrase by Mario Merz that leads back to the common ground of artistic practice as a starting point for the prefiguration of unknown worlds.
The three works that will be part of the exhibition from 2 November onwards create a triangle of visual connections and senses, and discreetly form part of the dialogue in the exhibition rooms, occupying spaces that had been left free in anticipation of this event.
In their long career, Marisa and Mario met and established relationships with other artists, with some of whom they engaged in a long-distance dialogue and which they resumed on the occasion of new joint exhibitions, while with others, after their first meeting, they developed an acquaintance that sometimes developed into friendship.
