Exhibition Program


“An egg-world” is a visionary contemporary art project that bases its foundation on the dichotomy between “egg” as a symbol and archetype and “world” as existence and present time. Visionary is because in the vision of those who care and whose exhibit, both concepts are amplified by following common and differentiated approaches at the same time.

Just think of the symbolism of the “cosmic egg” and its recurring cosmogonic archetype in the most diverse myths of ancient civilizations and often identified as the SOUL OF THE WORLD, or like the phoenix rising cyclically from the flaming egg of a medieval bestiary. In alchemy, the egg is  associated with the philosopher’s stone, it was the archetype able to bring each element back to its original purity, healing the corruption of matter. The cosmic egg has also been represented in various figurative arts from ancient times to today. A famous example is the “Pala di Brera” by Piero della Francesca, where it can be seen hanging from a vaulted ceiling, floating on the Madonna’s head and symbolizing the generative nature of life and divine perfection. Among the other paintings with a deep allegorical meaning there is the “Presentation of Virgin Mary at the Temple” by Tiziano and also, the “Triptych of the Delights” by Hyeronimus Bosch.

Egg and world, are two words that have much in common words like identity, diversity, dialogue, democracy, creativity, language, memory, myth, progress, territory, network and so on within the framework of the linguistic recognition of the contemporary world.
The exhibited artists are asked to represent, through their own vision, the concept of human life, of communicative action. On the other hand, from the disenchantment of the world and the  instability of all the words – which before defined it – an unusual, disoriented landscape was born, in which a different freedom was announced, delivered to nomadism, to research, to the journey intended as representation of the just me and at the same time, the landing in the contemporary, in our social geography in which we recognize ourselves living.
