Simone Bubbico approches the research on the light-shadow, man-nature dualism to technology: thin wildflowers grow on Venus de Milo, emblem of classical culture, as well as on the studies for sculptural models, custodian of ideal beauty. But it’s nature, in its more hostile manifestation, to draw our attention from a long time. Now it’s among us to recover its spaces. And yet, in the In bloom series, it still shows kindness: it’s elegant, capable of induce a subtle reflection; it’s light but also darkness and, in a game of fantastic illusions, refers to dreams survived to distruction.Federica Lavarini, curator of the exhibition.
