Enigmi, this is the title chosen for the exhibition that will take place from 5 to 28 July at the Arte Borgo Gallery. The exhibition intends to underline the peculiarities of international artists through their vision of complex and marginal art.

Through works dictated by their own personality, each artist expresses their own sense of freedom represented by a sometimes imaginary and sometimes real dimension.

This piece replicates a woman wearing a bird mask, conveying the theme of "repetition and a return to archetypes," which captures the essence of human life in society. Humans form orderly societies as a means of controlling chaos, making law and order a prerequisite for human civilization. The artwork depicts how the coexistence of chaos and order creates a repetitive cycle, much like the reflections found in opposing mirrors. The mask symbolizes a sociable personality and represents how human coexistence can result in an endless repetition of patterns, much like the reflections found in opposing mirrors.

This artwork was produced as a prayer for the hope that a world of tranquility and peace could come to the people of the world. As this world, in an attempt to be reborn, changed shape in massive ways, it generated fearsome, heaving waves in which various cultures, commerce, systems of distribution, and many countless, irreplaceable lives were lost. The feelings that can be experienced from this artwork are sorrow, supplication, a spirit of compassion, and finally, hope.

As the world was plunged into the coronavirus pandemic, sorrowful thoughts and ideas permeated the city. Shrines were devoid of water ladles, and supermarket shelves were emptied. The world was on the brink of a new rebirth, and I found myself pondering the role that art could play in this changing landscape. As I absorbed the ideas surging from the earth, my mind became pure and innocent, allowing me to channel my thoughts into this artwork. In the end, the theme that remained was "supplication."

The Arte Borgo Gallery is located in Rome, at the heart of the Rione Borgo, just a stone's throw away from the Vatican City.
Rione Borgo, a small neighborhood in Rome, has for years retained its popular character, still tied to the past with many shops and craftsmen. It is precisely here that Anna Isopo, the President of the Association and a passionate gallery owner, works to promote, enhance, and spread Art and Culture in all its forms, contributing to the cultural life of the city.
The Arte Borgo Gallery space becomes an exhibition center for solo or group exhibitions, welcoming dynamic projects, events, and cultural manifestations curated by Art Manager Alessandra Esposito, favoring Art in all its expressions.
Thanks to the professionalism of expert and creative curators, Arte Borgo Gallery provides artists with the opportunity to have their Art appreciated throughout the exhibition process, from the selection of works to the promotion of the event.
In love with Art and proud of the historical setting that characterizes this place, with a strong link between the past and the contemporary, this Space will welcome you even just to stop and reflect in front of the vision of the exhibited works.
