Indagine II’24 – Octavio Floreal

10 Febbraio - 24 Marzo 2024

GART Arte Contemporanea è lieta di annunciare l’apertura della nuova stagione espositiva con “Indagine II’24”, la mostra personale dell’artista spagnolo Octavio Floreal, che si estende dalle sale della galleria fino agli spazi de La Sbornia a Verduno. L’inaugurazione si terrà sabato 10 febbraio alle ore 18:00 negli spazi della sede di Neive, in Via Rocca 31.

L’esposizione presenta l’universo in bianco e nero di Octavio Floreal, artista originario delle Isole Canarie. Una selezione di opere emblematiche del suo percorso, tre opere inedite e un’installazione site-specific realizzata negli spazi della galleria, inoltrano alle quattro grandi sculture ospitate nei giardini e negli spazi interni de La Sbornia a Verduno. L’esposizione, estesa tra le colline delle Langhe, esplora così uno dei maggiori filoni del lavoro dell’artista, nominato “Indagine”. 

Indagine” per definizione è “un’attività teorica e pratica, indirizzata alla conoscenza o alla scoperta di qualcosa”. [(Sin.) analisi, esame, esplorazione, osservazione, ricerca, studio.]
Questa parola raccoglie all’interno di sé il principio madre che muove l’arte di Floreal sin dall’inizio dei suoi studi e della sua carriera, cominciata a metà degli anni ’90. 
Attraverso questo corpo di lavoro, da cui prende il titolo la mostra, Floreal ha dato vita a un alfabeto simbolico manipolando un solo e unico filo di ferro. Le sue icone, originariamente nate dal disegno, sono sintesi visive di concetti esistenziali, con cui si intrecciano i racconti della storia dell’uomo e dell’arte con esperienze personali. La codificazione di questi simboli ha portato l’artista a esprimersi con quelli che possono essere definiti i “12 elementi universali”, sempre presenti in ogni opera. Quest’ultimi vengono saldati insieme in modo da dare vita a un gioco di composizioni armoniose, “poesie visive che si strutturano nello spazio“. La profondità della sua personale linea scultorea si percepisce nel suo riuscire a conferire a ogni singolo elemento figurativo una ‘semplicità di lettura’. Questo aspetto invita gli spettatori ad avvicinarsi e a compiere, appunto, un’indagine dei significati, scoprendosi e riconoscendosi negli iconici simboli che, per quanto unici e personali, ci parlano come se fossero già stati assorbiti dal nostro immaginario collettivo.
