LA DOMENICA DELL’ARTE – CULTURAL SUNDAY IN MILANO PART 2

WHERE: Pirelli HangarBicocca – MILANO

Cerith Wyn Evans “….the Illuminating Gas”

I personally love light and space. It is not that common to find an exhibition that put in the centre of attention both of those aspects. However, I was lucky enough to be still on time to see an amazing installation which presented in a marvellous way a lovely balance between light and darkness. Where one starts the other ends. Very spacious, very visual and acoustic – that was my impression after visiting Pirelli HangarBicocca in Milano before the world has stopped. Before Lombardia was no longer associated with art and fashion and before Milano started to have completely different headlines in media.

It is no coincidence that you can see this text posted today on Easter Sunday. Taking into consideration how the world is transforming currently, we cannot forget that at the end the light wins. No matter how deep and frightening the darkness, there is the light which brings hope and directions for all of us. Let those illuminations remind us how powerful and beautiful at the same time the brightness can be.

This is the description of the installation which we can find on the Pirelli HangarBicocca website: ‘Conceived as a harmonious composition of light, energy, and sound, “….the Illuminating Gas” is the largest-ever solo exhibition by Cerith Wyn Evans (Llanelli, Wales, UK, 1958; lives and works in London) and it presents a selection of twenty-four works—earlier sculptures, complex monumental installations, and new productions—offering visitors a unique synesthetic experience.’

I found some irregular shapes not less fascinating than quite structured bicycles.

Hard not to look back

It was not easy to leave such a place where each corner could surprise us with some innovative shapes of light. Nevertheless, exiting the building was also not disappointing. Look at the graffiti that was displayed on a huge wall of the building.

Goodbye graffiti
