“ECLISSI”, an anthological exhibition of the master Claudio Giacone experimenter of potential energies, masterfully enclosed and expressed, in his works.
In the past, exhibiting the Ghiacciai Claudio Giacone series, he paid homage to the history of Ricetto, built on an erratic boulder, a grandiose fragment of the ice age, which like others, scattered throughout the territory, characterize the lower Susa Valley up to Alpignano, Rivoli and Villarbasse. In the architecture of the Ricetto, part of the large erratic boulder, set inside the building like a precious stone, is visible in some of the exhibition rooms. The comparison between the works and the original environment creates a constant dialogue between the space and artistic creations, a way to connect the past to the present and to reflect on the future imaginary of our Alps.
An ideal context in which to place the works of Claudio Giacone, mountaineer, “young artist over ninety years old” who has always created, with irony but also great technical competence. Passionate artist, but also an active and committed subject, who lives and works every day, to propose solutions for the protection of the planet Earth which, as known, risks extinction above all due to the lack of adequate knowledge and the lack of sensitivity of too many . In the enchanting setting of the Ricetto di San Mauro in Almese, Claudio Giacone seals a new partnership, given the many elective affinities that today allow us to imagine and realize this meeting of visions, gazes and sensibilities, between heaven and earth.
With the anthology that includes a vast period of time, we therefore propose a reinterpretation of the history of Contemporary Art seen through the gaze, the practice and the thought of the evergreen Claudio Giacone, who in the long and fruitful creative path intended the art as catharsis, a way to free oneself from traumatizing experiences and conflict situations, the ideal and real medium for the purification of the body and soul.
