The harmony of nature in a large-scale ad hoc installation of twelve panels in sequence. Set up as an isolated, enclosed room, the panels give visitors the impression that they are walking through a wood.
Angelo Piazzoli explains “This isn’t an exhibition in the traditional sense of the word, it’s an innovative experiment, both in terms of the idea and the contents, with an installation that was designed for a building with a very marked character of its own, the headquarters of a bank”. The exhibition-installation is a logical continuation of Giovanni Frangi’s artistic development, a metaphorical journey characterised by a growing interest in mankind’s relationship with the environment. Angelo Piazzoli delucidates: “All the way back to the years after he graduated from the Brera Academy Giovanni Frangi, an artist acclaimed by the public and critics alike for the originality of his creative research, has always interacted with his exhibition venues, the space his work would fill. Which is exactly what he has achieved here with his sequence of panels: shades and patterns of purple line the walls like some form of exotic wallpaper, evocative of similar physical sensations to those aroused by the harmonies of the natural world. (Real) dry leaves are scattered on the floor to heighten the effect. What could be more unusual than to find yourself walking on a carpet of autumn leaves in a dreamlike room in a bank?”.
