presents the exhibition

Ugo La Pietra
Passaggio di terre
curated by Mara De Fanti

on the occasion of Festa della Ceramica di Saronno

opening friday 18 june
till 18 june

Ugo La Pietra was a precursor among the arts of many aspects that we find today in the contemporary scene: from conceptual art to installations, from cinema, to the use of photography, to illustration. The transition between the various disciplines, all addressed with great research and study, has always led him to live every experience to the full, to follow every phase of the work with passion and curiosity, from design to implementation. The proximity to ceramics derives not from a family tradition or residence, but from his approach as a designer to work: he studies, deepens, designs and finally chooses the most suitable materials and techniques with great attention to craftsmanship. During his career he therefore crossed not only materials and techniques but also lands, in the double sense of clays and territories. It is in fact the search for the place, for the Genius loci of each land, which leads him to create a specific project each time. The exhibition tells us about these lands, sometimes suspended in a non-place, a homely and intimate dimension but at the same time extraneous to everything. A mythical place, a house inside and outside, brick by brick, a reference to terracotta, in which ceramic is the material and object of representation. Rooms that stop the moment, in which the doors, the passages offer us a chance. Like a game, escape rooms present us with an immobile scene, which has yet to be fulfilled, without judgment, in this suspended time of decision. On the other hand, it is in La Pietra’s thought that “abitare è essere ovunque a casa propria”. Houses that become homes of nature, in balance between organic and inorganic matter, vase-houses that house creatures, garden pots and gardens for pots. The artist tells us about many passages, which will find a place in the sensitivity of each of us.
(Mara De Fanti)
