AS A DEDICATION TO THE ARTIST WHEN HE WAS YOUNG Second StAtion: Funeral

DescriptionAS A DEDICATION TO THE ARTIST WHEN HE WAS YOUNG An Art project by Flavio Sciolè

The installation “as a dedication to the artist when he was young” by Flavio Sciolè can be visited at “Artcevia International Art Festival from 13th July to 27th September. The exhibit and textual criticism are by Laura Coppa.
The installation is related to the figure of the young artist, which has often been turned into a myth, too many times exploited. Going into a room, we realize to be in a bedroom. Looking above us we find out a hanged body/dummy. The wish is to show the condition of the young artist, who is exploited, despised, derided, never helped. They let him die in his own rigorousness and he is accepted only if he decides to surrender/sell out. In this case we find him with a slip-knot around his neck, he committed suicide.
The installation is the first station of the project, the second station will take place at the end of the festival: a funeral and a physical burial of the dummy
