Anonymous Art (Elena Bertoni, Simone Romano), Arts Factory (Francesca Del Moro, Federica Gonnelli, Donatella Schilirò, Adriana M. SoldinI), Loredana Catania, Roberto Messina, Shanti Ranchetti are invited to deal with Darkness and its symbiotic relationship with Light.
Inside the mechanics of society, men are inclined to hide their negative and condemnable sides in the attempt to be accepted and integrated. They spend a lot of energy to smother and hide them, until the forced balance dramatically breaks. French sociologist Michel Maffesoli describes it as a revival of the dark face of our nature, that culture can only partially tame but that keeps on enlivening all our affections. The concept’s development is based on an extensive research which goes from Plato’s “Allegory of the cave” to the concept of Shadow as formulated by Carl Gustav Jung. From Good to Evil, the artists are supposed to explore the depths of the human soul and of the structures of society. They are challenged to catch the moment in which Darkness appears inside the human mind. For this purpose they will use the lightness and the magic that Neo Pop only shares with fairy tales.
