Nothing is Known, Everything is Imagined (Nulla si sa, tutto si immagina.)

by Gaia De Megni (NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano)

Quoting Federico Fellini in his latest film “The Voice of the Moon”, the work breaks down and reassembles cinematographic elements. The sculptures come to life by projecting a film where the protagonist is the sea. The two cubes represent the attempt to originate a solidification of the moving images with the aim of being able to stop their intangibility.

The subtitle engraved on the marble surfaces shows the quote: “Nulla si sa, tutto si immagina.” (Nothing is known, everything is imagined.), with the intent to reflect on the reality that surrounds us, and on the ability of human beings to decode the degree of fiction and alternative facts in media content. A reflection on the uncertainty of existence in a century where images are everywhere, creating a detachment from reality through the use of post production and increasingly unattainable aesthetic canons.
