Maurizio Nannuci | Words Without Silence

Maurizio Nannucci's exhibition at Galerie Nikolaus Ruzicska, Words Without Silence/Silence Without Words, opens Sunday November 24th at 11am.

"For his third exhibition at Galerie Nikolaus Ruzicska in Salzburg, Maurizio Nannucci has created a new site-specific installation composed by seven monochrome luminous neon texts spread across the exhibition space, filling each one with coloured reflexes and creating a unitary route making a statement about the semantic polyvalence of colour, light and language. All texts have a chiasmatic pattern, can be read in reverse and in consequence the meaning of the writing is turned upside down.
Blue, red, yellow, green, white, pink and orange are the used colours, as the early neon writings the artist conceived in the sixties. The neon texts are installed in the centre of the walls and give form to a continuous polychromatic horizon, in which colours make a fusion, turning the monochrome light of every single neon into a scale of shades unifying all texts."
