Fondazione Merz | Solo da Bambini. Lina Fucà, Daniele Gaglianone, Paolo Leonardo
curated by Maria Centonze
7 March – 19 May2019
Fondazione Merz presents, Solo da Bambini (‘Only as children’), an exhibition curated by Maria Centonze, featuring the work of three artistic personalities strongly linked to each other: a couple, comprising artist Lina Fucà and film director Daniele Gaglianone, and their close friend, artist Paolo Leonardo.
The starting point of the exhibition is a month-long trip to Cuba by Lina Fucà and Daniele Gaglianone with their children in 2016, commissioned by the Fondazione Merz. The visual, personal and collective memory of this experience is interspersed with influences of the city of Turin, where all three artists were born.
The common thread that runs through this set of visual narratives is the reflection around the theme of childhood, understood as a condition common to all human beings. A phase of existence in which encounters and decisive experiences are condensed and subsequently returned to through memory.
