O Solitude

This is a permanent exhibition updated every month with a work by a different artist. This exhibition is a personal, subjective and non-judgmental tribute by Milena Carbone to a work of art that touched her. Subjectivity is claimed here. It expresses its difference in relation to the ranking of social networks and the elitism of the art community. Neither populist nor snobbish, the work is not selected through insider debate, competition or number of likes: it is a personal and emotional choice that has no more or less value than the choice of an expert or a fan.

You enter the exhibition through an austere anteroom, displaying a quote from the French writer Pascal Quignard: “We are better isolated. We were alone from the start. We slide our head in the Absence. We lock the gate, we bolt the door, we close the window, we wait until outside, far away, the pogrom passes without seeing us. Sumus singuli. It is not wise to pursue the wishes of our parents. It is unwise to follow the wishes of the group. Let nothing transfer in our head. Help yourself to the transfer. Stop serving. “Everywhere hatred comes first ” means “everywhere solitude is preferable”.”

Quignard sets the tone for the exhibition: a focus on a single work, a silent face-to-face like a mandala facing the meditator in the middle of the void.

You then move through a common door into a space of 3,600 sqm with, at its center, a single painting on an easel, facing an empty chair. The painting is displayed like a solitaire, a jewel in an immense setting.

Every month visitors will be able to appreciate a new work and a new artist in its setting, and meditate to the sound of the ticking of time passing, eternal moment after eternal moment.

For this first iteration Milena Carbone presents a work by Janus Fall, a promising artist, and an excellent portrait painter. The painting, entitled “Field with light and storm” shows a portrait of a woman in American shot, austere and anxious, in a tormented and dark landscape. Her right hand gracefully closes her shawl in a protective gesture, while her left hand, which seems older, falls alongside her body in the dark. The character’s enigmatic attitude fascinates the observer. There is a form of ‘uneasiness’ in this face, accentuated by the dark, blurry and hectic background. The play of light is particularly successful. One half of the sky, the left, is luminous, the other is dark, as if the character were taking the ‘sinister’ path, but illuminated for her. She seems to leave a house in the background, slightly lit.

The Truth About Trees Remix

This exhibition devoted to trees and global warming, two themes important to Milena Carbone, was presented for the first time in 2020 at the FAIR gallery. It was the subject of a short story book.

The new version displays the paintings in a space of classic and colorful inspiration. As in the first version, an apple tree enclosed by a police crime scene expresses the original sin which led man out of paradise and to the destruction of the kingdom that the trees have patiently built for half a billion years.

The tables are all illustrations of short stories written by Milena Carbone in 2019. In her creation process, Milena Carbone is inspired by an image produced on SL to write a short story, then, conversely, reworks the image by taking inspiration from the atmosphere of the story.
