Intrinsic Borders – Valerio Perino

24 May - 26 May 2024

GART Arte Contemporanea, from 24 to 26 May, presents at the Museum-Castle of Magliano Alfieri the exhibition Confini Intrinseci (Intrinsic Boundaries) by the artist Valerio Perino, alias ‘Tempio Industriale’, curated by Matteo Scavetta and Francesca Carbone, and organised in collaboration with Techne Art Service on the occasion of the Urtija Festival. The fourth edition of this festival, through contemporary art, cultural events, nature excursions, food and wine tastings and musical proposals, will lead to a reflection on the relationship between the limit and its overcoming. The artist Valerio Perino, originally from Turin and Mexican by adoption, will present two site-specific installations made with materials from all over the world, exploring the limit of sacredness within the ancient rooms of the Tower of the Castle of Magliano Alfieri. The exhibition, through a specially tailored route, will lead the visitor to experience the limit from a spiritual and physical point of view, through the overcoming of industrial architectural barriers to contemporary urban ex-votos. The exhibition Confini Intrinseci (Intrinsic Boundaries) aims to extract from the Western cultural heritage, from which the roots of our identity and codes of behaviour originate, new dimensions of values linked to popular religiosity. The exploration of different cultures, including the Mexican culture, reflects the artist’s desire to find glimmers of meaning in the ‘everyday sacred underground’. His works express a faith rediscovered even in a small coin of the present, capable of creating a different dimension of value within the new popular and contemporary religiosity. His art opposes the nihilism and emptiness of today’s society by creating works that can be a guarantee of protection and salvation. Adopting a style that is easily understood, popular and rooted in street art, the artist’s urban ex-votos lead us to explore a new dimension of Contemporary Sacred Art.
