OLTRE IL NIDO by Antonio Nocera

05/10 - 28/11/2010
Mercati di Traiano Museo dei Fori Imperiali

On display 80 works by Antonio Nocera - created between 2007 and 2010 - including sculptures and paintings included in the striking surroundings of the Great Hall on the main body and along the Garden of the Militia of Trajan’s Markets, as if in dialogue with the monumentality and sculptural wealth of the great complex.

The theme of the exhibition is “Home”, symbolically represented by the nest, explored in all its emotional depths. The house represents an area of discovery, a place of definition for the human being. The house, from its primitive form, the cave, is the atavistic refuge of all living things, in short, it is the nest where every creature is fed, cared for, protected, and from where one spreads one’s wings to explore the world. Since ancient mythology, the trip is but a metaphor for life itself. It can be read, in fact, as concrete time, physical movement in space and time, but also in a symbolic sense as a desire, power of knowledge and research, or abandonment, exile, loss, removal, recovery of the self through places of the interior.
