kaufmann repetto presents "Sais", the ninth solo show at the gallery by Gianni Caravaggio.
Sais is the imaginary place described by Novalis in "The Novices of Sais", a symbolic novel centered around the dialog between a master and his pupils on the theme of nature and its relationship with men. The book counterposes to an objective concept of nature, seen as an entity ruled by scientific laws, a more subjective and poetic vision of it, suggesting the possibility of an underlying unity behind the apparent duality between subject and object, nature and spirit.
Each one of the four new sculptures installed in the gallery space represents a reflection on nature or and time, key themes in Caravaggio’s research. Here, time is simultaneously depicted in all its different connotations: as an objective and measurable dimension, as a perceived entity and as a mere meteorological event.
