Galleria Antonia Jannone – Aldo Cibic – Pocket Landscapes.
A small exhibition of drawings and installations called Pocket Landscape by Aldo Cibic at the Galleria Antonia Jannone. “I have always been attracted to Nature that manifests its forces in unexpected contexts – when at the side of a road the asphalt cracks and is lifted by a tuft of grass, or in some long-abandoned plaza one can see the grid of cement slabs retraced in moss and weeds, or even when any pavement meets a vertical wall and small plants laboriously force themselves through the juncture sprouting leaves seeking light and life at any cost. It has also happened that I have found myself within contexts of deterioration where people, in an attempt to redeem the surrounding poverty and decline, have placed potted plants and flowers along their window sills in an attentive display of care; as if this gesture represented the last thin connection to the idea of a dignified ambient condition.” Aldo explains his inspirations for the poetic show.
