CESARE VIEL. NOBODY ANYWHERE ANYMORE
curated by Diego Sileo
13 October – 1 December 2019
Words and the human body take centre stage in the works of Cesare Viel, whose artistic language makes use of several media – including prose, performances, videos, photography, drawing. His artistic quest attaches great importance to the emotional connection between narrator and observer, explored via a path made up of thoughts and stories. Since the early Nineties, Viel has regarded performances, disguises, makeup, recitals or songs as a way of “conveying” himself to others; by means of a self-referential subject, the artist penetrates other situations, other bodies and stories, so as to try imagining and thinking up other forms of subjectivity that inevitably lead us to interpret art as an emotional exchange in order to communicate with the general public.
