Paesaggi Improbabili | Ciro Palumbo

The theme of the show, that of Paesaggi improbabili (Improbable landscapes), gives Ciro Palumbo the pretext for a journey into the spaces of the mind, into those which are, in reality, our interior landscapes. Here then is the silence of a dazzling white cliff, inviolable like a repressed thought. Here is absence told by an empty chair, an absence whose only hope of redemption is the starry window that opens in the wall behind it. Here is the landscape, transformation, surveyed by fantastical animals lost in environments that open into each other like Chinese boxes. And here are the closed rooms of regret, barely lit by a small window, where memories stand out floating like lost objects: a circus tent, an island, a wandering boat. The sculpture – which will be one unique piece in ceramic but which also includes a limited edition in resin – gives us back in three dimensions one of the themes dear to the artist: the rocky island, which in this case bears some of the symbolic objects of his work such as the temple, the house and the stars.
