With “Dismantle”, a series of interventions that blend with the architecture of the former factory A. Ancione, the artist wanted to address the theme of anthropization reflecting on the dynamics of the industrial cycle and the geometries that make up the landscape of the production area of Contrada Tabuna.
From these ideas comes a mural of 75 square meters in which the industrial architecture is decomposed and reassembled through the use of geometries and a palette born from the study of the colors of the place.
To make the wall painting even more fascinating are a series of diagonals and the play of solids and voids inspired by the architectural elements of the industrial area and the particular landscape characterized by the presence and absence of asphyxiated stone from the subsoil.
The artist has also worked in other spaces where he has created more ephemeral and intimate works, always focusing on the meaning of anthropization and obsolescence, transforming the place into a device with infinite spatial, pictorial, and performative solutions.
In the “plaster bagging” area of the former factory, on the other hand, formal interventions of an almost accidental nature were carried out.
In my artistic research, there are traces of the anthropization of the territory: urban landscapes, large architectural structures, bridges, quarries, alterations of the natural balance that have led man to face the environmental emergency for which we are all responsible. A vision that wants to question current economic and social models and explore possible futures in which the human being is stripped of its centrality. All my works are open devices: reflections of an anthropological nature, concerning the relationship between man and the environment and which want to leave the viewer free to find their own interpretation based on their own sensitivity. – Greg Jager
