Eng Course- ARCHEOLOGY OF MIND- Download Free PDF


Archeology of Mind is an exhibition project consisting exclusively of works from the Fondazione
Morra Greco Collection in Naples. Curatorial focus on a collection that has gradually been built
up over the years naturally tends to be characterised by a recondlte and wavering
interpretative quality, which is open to many forms of interpretations, all of which start out
from the past. Right from the outset. the possibility of presentlng a tour through a collection is
an exercise that is essentially archeological and encyclopaedic, It is one is which all recognition
of the contemporary world, of anticipation and prescience, necessarily starts out from the past
- from the moment the works were made and subsequently collected. Moving away from this
inevitable starting point, as though in ever-expanding circles, towards a broader view of the
theme, Archeology of Mind focuses on the works in the Morra Greco collection by artists who
have brought to the fore their idea of traditionalism and archeology, Each one ushers in their
own particular canons, and these are motivated by the proposition of a narrative, a self
portrait. or a conceptual operation. in which the main ingredient is that of the dimension
achieved by a plunge into time. It is one of historical otherness and a chronological shift away
from their own present. In the works of these artists, the constant relationship of continuity
and severance between contemporaneity and past, between the present and a focus on
antiquity. creates a path of mental archeology. This is built up by working on private
reminiscences of the past in Gothic, backwa rd-looking terms, but also with visionary views,
close to a dream-world dimension and the intellectual fascination of violence. The paradoxical
nature of this orientation lies in the fact that it introduces an unusual and unexpected equation
between the speed of the present day, in which the works have been made, and the
indecipherability of the historical age in which they appear to be set. It is precisely the
temporal gap - the dimension of differences and temporal u nrecogn isability in the artists'
works - that becomes the detonator of meaning, overtones and interpretations. By turning
their attention to a past that is concrete, visionary or even only suggested, these works reveal
the potential for understanding the present by starting out from the dimension of a purely
private and personal mental archaism.
