Leonardo Moretti – Love Project
Curated by Spela Zidar
February 29th, from 5 to 8 PM
LdM Gallery, Via de’ Pucci 4
LdM Gallery is pleased to host Love Project by Leonardo Moretti. The works on show function as an emotional diaphragm. In photography the diaphragm acts as an instrument that regulates the passage of light, in this case the works filter a visual code based on emotions while reflecting on the mystifying power of images.
Both installations on show, Love Project, which gives the name to the exhibition, and Tristagram stories, that addresses the relationship with social media, have a strong connection with the artist’s private and personal emotions.
The works are installed in a fluid way and give an impression as if the exhibition space is slowly being flooded, covered and uncovered by the artworks.
In this exhibition the artist presents artworks that develop in series, that yearn to be reproduced serially and to fill the whole space they have available. This seriality gets interrupted as the viewer discovers that the elements, even if similar, maintain their uniqueness, thus the reproduction is fake.
As also the emotion of love, the most represented, repeated, praised and celebrated by the artists all over the world, continues to contain uniqueness that is related to the personality involved. And that remains so even though so much has been said about love that it became a fetish, a brand.
