“BODY” exhibition aims to suggest an idea of the corporeal in-between the concept of aesthetic image and pure aesthetic representation. The human body becomes means and subject of emotional communication at the same time, it turns into a sheet on which ancient graphics, invasive insects or marvellous landscapes of memories of far societies can be inscribed. The body becomes statue, object of real modifications witnessing the will to live on one’s own body the sensations of mutation. Eyes bent by a mysterious inner strength or faces with signs of ageing but yet identical to themselves. Portraits living in spite of the artist like mirrors of unarmed spectators. De-contextualised body becomes the ready-made of the organic, material waste of digital era and container of beauty out of which blooming plants born of sockets of a mechanical entity are generated.It looks like the body becomes means of communication, matter to shape and new means to express individual freedom. Traditional representative themes and behaviour codes flee to give space to matter: from total assertion of itself to denial of the physical through the virtual. Reproduction of dramatic events experienced on one’s own body exorcises evil, the wound is becoming a sign of victory and a language to communicate with the other from the self. Sacred images showing a never born body, animals created by genetic reviews or simple body-objects to which survival is denied. The meaning of the concept of individual is turned over thus leaving open the possibility of thought and interpretation of the corporal generating crisis on the crystallization of ideas on this topic. Bodies wrapped in transparent sheets recall veiled maiden of old tradition but the actual female figures are suffocated; not protected but bended or covered by a shroud. A woman flirts with the mirror but is covered with hair thus bringing to the extreme the reflection on aesthetic value like in the work featuring a bust which contortion produces hypnotic lights and shadows. An exhibition rich in works which emotional impact is strong with performances, acts and a real-time net connection from Wales. A webcam will allow real bodies to virtually invade the physical space of the Casoria Contemporary Art Museum hinting at and denying the features of a body: proximity and physical touch.

But three years after love with it was not born yet. “Uomo Vogue” is still knocking at his temples and one day, the idea, advertising. The Communication Academy, IunderstandIwanttodothat, thatthatthat. So, first an agency, then another to look for the man who made me learn how to become art director, then one more agency, then Creative Direction came. Since more than a year he is in the agency of that man again; still to grow u, but also to make people grow up, today. Andy Warhol, and, in general pop art, more in general strong, compact colours, thick trait and elementary and unarming shapes. But, more in general, stomach. Giuseppe is intestines, instinct, nerve, liquid eyes and solid hands. He gets angry and makes people angry, he loves and make people love him, he looks and makes people look at him.
