Solo Exhibition 11/10 to 30/11/2018

Velasco VITALI (IT) - "Astrolomia" - Sculptures
Rue Blanche 15, B-1050 Brussels

Opening in presence of the artist Thursday 11/10 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm

For his 3rd solo exhibition in Brussels, Velasco Vitali takes us on a journey inspired by Marco Polo’s “Il Milione”(Book of the Marvels of the world). Il Milione is not the diary of a trip, but a told story dictated 26 years after the Asian crossing, by a Marco Polo imprisoned in Genova. It is an escape through the imaginary labyrinths of his memory, a mental and narrative invention in which the events remembered are still, inexhaustible and immovable images.

Velasco translates them into solid but undefinable sculptures that suggest a journey and at the same time a scam: a lie told by the memory, by the story, of an impossible to verify oral tradition that can yet inspire visions and be transmitted.

Pour sa 3e exposition à Bruxelles, Velasco Vitali nous emmène dans un voyage inspiré du «Livre des Merveilles du Monde» de Marco Polo. L’ouvrage n’est pas un carnet de bord, mais une histoire orale dictée 26 ans après sa traversée de l’Asie par un Marco Polo emprisonné à Gènes. C’est une évasion au travers des labyrinthes imaginaires de la mémoire, une invention mentale et narrative dans laquelle les évènements dont se souvient l’auteur sont à la fois inépuisables et immuables.

Velasco les traduit en sculptures physiques mais insaisissables qui suggèrent tant un voyage qu’une supercherie: un mensonge de la mémoire, de l’histoire, d’une invérifiable tradition orale qui est néanmoins transmise et inspirante.
