We adopt a short text of the artists to introduce you to their exhibition and are proud to present all new works.
“We work together, that is we are two. Our method is always the same: since years we ask each other a great deal of questions. But in the end every question brings in its roots the fundamental one: are you human? The acknowledgment so far has arrived, always mutual and never assumptive. And we like this.
Everyone of us is day by day responsible and free to ask or not to ask some questions.
To choose to be - or not to be - (any more) human. Everyone stands in front of himself, of society, of economy, of technology. Everyone in front of his time, in short. And this is the problem. So what's new? Every time everything is new…if we want to be honest.
This exhibition springs from the haste to define a possible measure and from the need to make the point of situation. Of this situation. And this starting from the only basic element, which is also - by experience - the only possible measure: the human datum. Private and individual, public and collective. Are you Human? “ (Marotta & Russo)
