CollectionThe HomoSapiens by Matteo Bernasconi
Inspired by a world that is increasingly embracing a technological-scientific vision at the expense of fundamental principles that have underpinned our existence for millenia, this exhibition explores what may be leading this course of action and analyses the human condition of modern man.
Focusing on the deep socio-economic changes that we find ourselves living through, the paintings in this collection put forward art as a way to activate a deeper discussion about humanity’s conflict with itself.
Technology might bring us development, but it does not guarantee progress. In other words, modern man is an expert in development but has stopped making progress. The privileging of the sciences over the humanities in schools is one such example of how our society is oriented toward expansion at the expense of refinement.
This collection of works represents the dehumanisation of modern life.
CollectionMetamorphosis by Matteo Bernasconi
Metamorphosis is inspired by the novella of the same name by Franz Kafka. The work investigates the transformation and the changes that occur in each of us throughout the span of our lives. Metamorphosis can occur at different levels, whether physically or mentally, and can be so transformative that it provides an escape from a trap that one finds themselves caught in.
In Metamorphosis, Matteo Bernasconi explores the hidden depths of humans. There is an emphasis on duality in people’s personas which is a reoccurring characteristic in each work. He shows not only the mere physical appearance, the facade, but focuses on unveiling something else, unseen and beneath the surface. He exposes what the subject is, not who the subject is.
