L'IMMAGINE E' UNA FOTOGRAFIA DA ME SCATTATA ALL'INTERNO DELLA CATTEDRALE DI SAN LORENZO A GENOVA.
AVEVO NOTATO UN INSIEME DI SCULTURE DI PUTTI "DIMENTICATI" IN UN ANGOLO AL LIVELLO SUPERIORE DEL MATRONEO.
ERANO ABBANDONATI ALLA POLVERE: PROPRIO LORO, SCULTURE ORNAMENTALI SEICENTESCHE, IN UN ANGOLO ACCANTO AL CONTATORE DELLA LUCE, CHE POI E' STATO RIMOSSO DELL'IMMAGINE, PROBABILMENTE IN ATTESA DA TEMPO DI OPERE DI RESTAURO.
DOPO AVER REALIZZATO LO SCATTO, E INSTALLATO ALL'INTERNO DI UNA CORNICE, COMPARE DENTRO DI ME IL DESIDERIO DI RACCONTARE LA STORIA DI QUESTO PUTTO: PICCOLO FANCIULLO DI POCHI ANNI, NON HA PIU' VOGLIA DI ATTENDERE IL RESTAURO, VUOLE SCAPPARE PER ANDARE FINALMENTE A GIOCARE ALL'ARIA APERTA, COL PIEDINO FA SCALZARE IL QUADRO DALLA CORNICE, MENTRE SI APPRESTA ALLA FUGA, LE SUE ORIGINI ED IL SUO "RUOLO" DA PUTTO, FA USCIRE LA LUCE DAL RETRO.
QUI NASCE L'INSTALLAZIONE: UNA FOTO RITOCCATA? UN QUADRO ORNAMENTALE? UNA LAMPADA A LED? O FORSE SOLO LA STORIA DI UN PUTTO CHE E' SOLO UN BIMBO IN CERCA UN GIRO DI GIOSTRA...
THE IMAGE IS A PHOTOGRAPH I TAKEN INSIDE THE CATHEDRAL OF SAN LORENZO IN GENOA.
I HAD NOTED A SET OF "FORGOTTEN" PUTTI SCULPTURES IN A CORNER UPPER LEVEL OF THE MATRONEO.
THEY WERE ABANDONED TO DUST: THEIR OWN, SEVENTH-CENTURY ORNAMENTAL SCULPTURES, IN A CORNER NEXT TO THE LIGHT COUNTER, WHICH THEN HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE IMAGE, PROBABLY WAITING FOR RESTORATION WORKS.
AFTER HAVING MADE THE SHOT, AND INSTALLED INSIDE A FRAME, THE DESIRE TO TELL THE STORY OF THIS PUTTO APPEARS WITHIN ME: LITTLE BOY A FEW YEARS OLD, HAS NO LONGER WANT TO WAIT FOR RESTORATION, HE WANTS TO ESCAPE PLAYING OUT IN THE OPEN AIR, WITH THE FOOT, THE PICTURE BOOTS FROM THE FRAME, WHILE IT OPENS TO ESCAPE, ITS ORIGINS AND ITS "ROLE" FROM PUTTO, LETS THE LIGHT COME OUT FROM THE BACK.
HERE THE INSTALLATION BORN: A RETOUCHED PHOTO? AN ORNAMENTAL FRAMEWORK? A LED LAMP? OR MAYBE JUST THE STORY OF A PUTTO WHO IS JUST A CHILD LOOKING FOR A CAROUSEL ...
