Anselm Kiefer / The Seven Heavenly Palaces

Just like the intricate labyrinth described by Borges in The Garden of Forking Paths, "in which all men would lose their way", in Kiefer's art there is always a narrative trap intentionally left, that could lead to a cul-de-sac or could open the path to all the possible meanings. Words by Larisa Oancea.

Self-aware images / Screens by Fabio Mauri

His monochrome canvases simulate the display of the filmic images; they do not materialize an image, but do prepare the frame in order to contain it, opening the door of our visual perception, intended as a topos of all the possible representations. A piece on Fabio Mauri's Screens written by Larisa Oancea.

Sarah Moon / Time at work

Haunting, mysterious, unknowable and blurred fairy tales by master of photography Sarah Moon and a conversation about her latest simultaneous exhibitions at the Fondazione Sozzani and at the Armani/Silos in Milan. Interview by Angelica Moschin.

David Tibet / Current 93

Sometimes words can drive into a submerged Sistine Chapel: the light reflections under the water reveal an unseen facet of the Judgement with a more vivid and altered perspective. David Tibet leads us to the other shore. An interview by Marco Giuliano.

Between life and death / Nicola Samorì

Deformed, defaced and destroyed, Nicola Samorì’s obscure, Baroque-inspired oil paintings are skillful reproductions of classical portraits and still lifes on canvas, wood or copper, systemically assaulted by the artist’s hand or knife in an attempt to provoke the status quo of the history of art.
