“On closer inspection, erasure is not a reset, but a question to be raised about representation. It is an almost revealing gesture of a dialectic between above and below, outside and inside, word and image”. Speaking is Germano Celant, curator of Emilio Isgró, an anthologic exhibition of the artist opening September 13th at Fondazione Cini in Venice. The quote is from a insightful dialogue between the two published today on Corriere della sera.
