Exceptional response from the public and critics for Hyperexpressionism in Prague, at the Galerie Topičův salon, one of the most prestigious exhibition spaces in the Czech capital, which overlooks the National Theater.
After the great exhibition in Rome (2016) at Tevere Art Gallery, and after the presentation of “Manifesto Iperespressionista” in Macerata at Laboratorio 41 Art Gallery, the hyperexpressionist movement continues its international tour. The exhibition “Hyperexpressionism in Prague” concluded on October 13th at the Galerie Topičův Salon, and comes after the success of “Die Zeit der Hyperexpressionismus” in Berlin (see article), arousing a formidable
interest in one of the most important European capitals of contemporary art.
The exhibition, curated by the founder of Hyperexpressionism, the art critic and writer from Macerata, David Miliozzi, shows the last productions of the two Italian artists of the movement, roman Iacopo Maria Fiorani and Fosco Sileoni, from Tolentino, with the contribution of the documentary by the videomaker Roberto Nigi. The setting presents central points of the Manifesto, counts on 40 multi-material works, from mixed media on canvas to a painted wooden room divider.
Director of the Italian Institute of Culture in Prague, Giovanni Sciola, intervened and brought his greetings to the large audience present in the Gallery.
“We continue our journey towards originality” says Miliozzi. “We want to go back to the roots of art, to the questions that art has always placed on the human being. Art is an expression, and today it is overexpression, we want to get into the hyperexpressive cavern, recover the authenticity of artistic feeling to question the contemporaneity and its contradictions.
The semantic flow has exceeded our interpretative capacity, increasing neuroses and fears
We live in a hyper-communicative world, yet the human being feels alone, abandoned behind a keyboard; the text has become hypertext but we become more and more ignorant, emotional and linguistic illiterate, we are no longer able to decipher the messages of daily life, our inner voice is dominated by the buzz of irrelevance. Technology, hypertechnology have made us slaves, the semantic flow has exceeded our interpretative capacity, increasing neuroses and fears. The time has come to stop and reflect on the deep meaning of our being in the world: let’s take back our life through art, as our ancestors did, art has always been the instrument for understanding and questioning the world, our salvation. ”
