Ca’ Pesaro – International Gallery of Modern Art

The Back in Black exhibition comprises a selection of sculptures, a print and a video where the most obvious link is the black colour. These works are particularly representative of Andrea Morucchio’s art journey, developed in a wide field of research: photography, sculpture, installation, video and performance are the means used throughout more than a decade of continuous experimentation of expressive dimensions and creativity.

Back in Black has a number of works in which the interest in sensory form is never separated from its symbolic or metaphorical level. Forms and meanings refer to and develop a dialogue between sculpture, video, performance and photography and suggesting to Zeitgeist, the spirit of the times we are living.

A dark spirit of war, economic crises, ecological disasters scary, populism and “videocracy”.
“Back to black”, as a metaphor of our contemporary color that stimulates ideas and are perhaps even necessary to discover the characteristics of the changing world in which we live in.
