“The Existentialist Trilogy” exhibition in Torino, pays homage to filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni and the “incommunicable”


Elizabeth Aro, Claudia Maina and I Santissimi star in “La Trilogia Esistenziale,” an exhibition of multimedia installations dedicated to Italian filmmaker Michelangelo Antonioni; more specifically to his films “L’Avventura,” (1960) “La Notte” (1961) and “L’Eclisse” (1962) which became known as his “Existentialist Trilogy,” films that … spoke about “incommunicability.”

Antonioni’s films are some of the most famous – and most beautiful – Italian films of the 60s. They are bewildering meditations on the difficulty of human relations in our day and age, they address the impossibility of communication, especially in relationships.

Each artist occupies one room and proposes installations which dialogue with one of the three films. Elizabeth Aro’s two installations talk to “La Notte,” Claudia Maina’s installation refers elliptically to “L’Eclisse” while I Santissimi’s (Sara Renzetti and Antonello Serra) installation seeks “L’Avventura.” The exhibition has the support of the Michelangelo Antonioni Foundation and is curated by Maria Cristina Strati.

The opening reception is Thursday, the 26th of September, 2013, at 6:30pm.
