SIMONE PELLEGRINI. An Anarchic Geography

SIMONE PELLEGRINI. An Anarchic Geography

20.07 – 26.11.2023

The MUSEC exhibition, curated by Francesco Paolo Campione and Nora Segreto, presents 12 large-scale works created by Simone Pellegrini (Ancona, 1972) between 2007 and 2022. Pellegrini’s pictorial investigation is aimed at the search for a new alphabet made of shapes and signs, that he imprints on large sheets of dusting paper with self-produced matrices. Sources of his creative inspiration are the philosophical, mystical, scientific and poetic writings that he consults and that release the imagery of his inner world.
The exhibition set up in MUSEC’s Spazio Maraini presents, in addition to the 12 wall works, an installation composed of numerous matrices placed on the ground under the larger work, and set up as if they had fallen after transposing the sign onto the support. In addition to the short captions, the works on display are accompanied by some quotations from the conversation held on May 27, 2022 by the artist with Francesco Paolo Campione: short aphorisms derived from a critical dialogue in which Pellegrini has expressed some of the main themes of his aesthetics.
An English-language catalogue published by the Culture and Museums Foundation in its “Global Aesthetics” series accompanies the exhibition.
