La Notte Più Profonda
Operativa is thrilled to announce the upcoming show “La Notte piú Profonda”, the third solo exhibition of Emiliano Maggi in the gallery space.
The show introduce a new body of ceramic works and a series of paintings focused on the italian renowed philosopher Giordano Bruno book “Spaccio de la bestia trionfante” where the metamorphosis which, with respect to the soul as the single and infinite substance, affects not only all composite beings but also the gods which manifest themselves in nature. Animals of various types populate the allegorical and moral sky of the Spaccio, a night sky which makes figures visible that are hidden in the daylight but are always in action, occupying the room of the collective memory.
Emiliano Maggi (Rome 1977) lives and works in Rome.
The artist’s work explores the constitution and disintegration of the self, producing sculptures and paintings that expand the range of figurative representation, and conjuring abstract regions beyond the realm of recognizability, centered on the human and animal form, which in Maggi vision includes not only the body but the mind, the imagination, and the soul, not to mention the ways the material world is perceived and felt through these channels.
