On November 19th 2019, Anna Maria Consadori Gallery inaugurates 68 Pezzi
FAcili a group exhibition conceived as a contemporary Wunderkammern to
bring together works ranging from the sixteenth century to the present day.
Small masterpieces of sculpture, painting, graphics, photography and design,
linked by the only red thread of the pleasure of quality even in small
dimensions. Unexpected surprises, reconfirmations or discoveries, micromasterpieces of immediate beauty: easy pieces.
With no ideological or conceptual complications, nor pedantic explanations, the juxtaposed objects simply speak for themselves. A 1927 majolica jug by Gio Ponti sits next to an enigmatic ceramic vase by Studiopepe, a rarefied landscape by Japanese artist Toshimitsu Baba is matched with a refined Saint Margaret portrait by Ventura Salinbeni, late 1500s painter from Siena. The game of references, of unexpected relationships, of Liaisons no longer Dangereuses but rather stimulating and creative, is the infinite game everyone is invited to retrace following their own cultural or emotional paths, finding artists who have always been loved – such as Sottsass, Mendini or Castellani – along with young or unpublished artists, discovered or re-discovered by the gallery: for example Tomaso Buzzi, a well-known architect in the 30s but little known as an extraordinary sketcher and painter; or Antonia Campi, a remarkable designer and ceramist whose rare collection of gold, silver and porcelain jewelry is displayed.
