Tatiana Kourochkina Gallery, in collaboration with Paolo Maistri, presents the first solo show in Spain of Pietro Ruffo. Drawings and installations composed of a great visual impact, Non siamo ancora stati Salvati (We have not yet been saved) reflects on freedom, power and politics of territorial occupation. Inspired by the "Arab spring", Pietro Ruffo has made a site-specific installation Liberty House (2011). On the walls inside the house, the artist draws with great skill a forest in which the viewer is immersed. On one wall in relief, it reads a thought of Lebanese poet Khalil Gibran: "And if it is a despot you would dethrone, see first that his throne erected within you is destroyed."
The series Untitled (2010 - 2011) are composed of large format drawings with a multitude of paper dragonflies embedded on the surface. Sometimes used as a symbol of delicacy and freedom, this swarm of dragonflies, with its swift flight and no precise direction, also recalls its brief existence.
The exhibition is complemented by a series of flags, Flags (2010 -2011), drawn on maps. With this gesture of territorial "contamination", the artist questions the construction of collective identity and geopolitical boundaries.
As pointed out by Paolo Maistri, curator of the exhibition, "these works fly over a world in constant transformation, profound and necessary, pursuing that intangible, elusive and desirable freedom".
