Loredana Di Lillo

May 12 - June 11 2011

Sensuality, morality, brutality, loneliness and standardization, mass production and imaginary maps, nature, disasters, physical barriers and mental borders, ideology, alienation, serious things and facetious things, the untold, somewhere related to love, loneliness, roles, to die, invisible, spiritual, illogical...

An fist embroidered with silk on a old blanket, a bronze bust molded from clay, a figure forever obscured, blown-glass bottles that remind of mass production icons, postcards never bought and never sent, thundering phrases from popular operas.

Animal is the effort of a dream that runs through suggestions, quotes, elusive and seemingly liminal signs, small and hidden monuments. Loredana Di Lillo sketched a catalog of intimate findings, results of a personal, emotional and psychological investigation, capable to deal with the paradoxes of our time.
