Showroom Spazio5 / A SAIB – December 2019 / January 2020
Enza Monetti, Re / Generate. Curated by Barbara Martuscello.
The exhibition of the artist Enza Monetti inaugurates the partnership of SAIB with the world of art, the artist through his site specific works declines the universal symbol of the tree in different sizes, materials and sizes by addressing the theme of rebirth. Regeneration is one of the key themes for SAIB which, through its philosophy called ReWood, pursues the regeneration of wood at the end of its life and also of all the elements that are obtained from cleaning processes. Iron, plastic, glass, aggregates, fabric and aluminum are sent to the recovery chains, to make the SAIB production process even more virtuous. From the presentation text by Barbara Martuscello “Enza Monetti has been working on these topics for a long time with skillful manual skill, sober elegance and minimal rendering. She considers matter as an element of strength in her works which express an essential symbolism and highlight the contamination between languages and poetics ; art, imagination, concentration on life, social concerns and openness of synergies are the fields of his investigation that brings echoes of hope. He develops all this through multiple thematic and lexicological paths focused on an ethical thought about the possibility of spiritual persistence and in memory of Nature continuously threatened, and its conceptual extension – with wall artefacts, with installations, sculptures and real settings – to open the collective reflection on what is being lost of humanity.
