The scatolabianca cultural association launches the Giuseppe Ciracì solo shows, Paper Heroes, curated by Martina Cavallarin, the 14 June 2010 at the Gaya Art Space in Bali, Indonesia
Giuseppe Ciracì (Brindisi, 1975)
Has a technique that focuses on the visible and the invisible, on the split created by the materials almost as if it were a laceration of the film-like surface and on the “skeleton and skin” alternation, and is endowed with a poetic code that is both knowledgeable and extended in time. Often his pencil works involve a dynamism multiplied by several sheets of paper containing an organised repertoire of information that make up a single narration. In the central installation at Gaya Art Space, sixteen paper modules are arranged in such a way as to orchestrate and proportion the almost total absence of physiognomic traits, all the way to the constipation of aggregations consisting of specific details arranged in casual order, but rationalised, around the paper where there is the central head, almost as if to narrate the impossibility of an encounter occurring between the full body and the tactile relationships, between the self and between the self and the other. In this line of tension, the artist finds the right climate for the resurrection of a unique and non-judgeable style, capable of generating eroticism even in the maniacal definition of a bone structure or in the persistent lightness of specific anatomical detail. Ciracì’s primary objective is the walk towards the essence combined with the construction of double presences where action and thought cohabit. The dispossession of the identity of the subject that is being represented by subjecting it to a trimming occurs through the contraction of the methodical fracture of his artistic code, which aspires to achieve a state of transparency.
