Fittile proposes a fascinating journey through Italian artistic ceramics: an ancestral know-how, widespread throughout the national territory with typologies, techniques, materials, workshops, authors of a wealth and diversity unique in the world.
This selection of works stems from the expertise of Ugo La Pietra, artist, architect and designer, historical figure of reference for the Italian applied arts and for ceramics in particular: a territory that he has always loved and frequented, enhancing the different areas of excellence , working side by side with the artisans and creating memorable collections.
This is how La Pietra explains his curatorial choices:
“(…) In Italy today, in the field of the applied arts, or the arts and crafts as many enthusiasts prefer to call them, the medium of ceramics is being taken up by an ever growing number of people, almost always with direct or indirect ties to areas with a tradition of its use: those regions where many artisans still produce traditional objects with particular talent.
The works presented in this exhibition are an incomplete representative survey of artists and artisans who manifest their creative capacities through a skill in the working of the material and a sure personal language of expression. Technique and poetics are the two values that together give meaning to the exhibition; choices made by people who consciously refuse to recognize their work as part of the system of art or design. Conceptuality and spectacularity are the two parameters that we often find present in identical proportions in the objects on display.
Objects that hark back to the principal archetype of everyday use, but one that also has a strong symbolic significance: the pot. ”
The exhibition is completed by a video installation by Lucio La Pietra entitled “Rizòmata“: the staging of the continuous dynamic motion of the first elements, which create and transform matter.
