Who’s afraid of the dark? This is the first date of the trilogy The Dark Side, curated by Danilo Eccher.
The exhibition The Dark Side. Who is afraid of the dark? involves twelve of the most important international artists with large site-specific installations: from masters recognized throughout the world, such as Gregor Schneider, Robert Longo, Hermann Nitsch, Tony Oursler, Christian Boltanski to the new protagonists of the contemporary art scene such as Monster Chetwind, Sheela Gowda, Shiota Chiharu. Among the Italians there are names such as Gino De Dominicis, Gianni Dessì, Flavio Favelli, Monica Bonvicini.
The Dark Side project represents the ‘dark side’ that is in each of us, the real or presumed stumbles of life that impose a pause, a reflection, that make the heart beat but, at the same time, light new possibilities, new thoughts, new perspectives.
The Dark Side is a project about the ‘dark side’ of things, about the unspoken part of thought, about the secrets of our soul but also about the curiosity of this challenge, about the courage to cross the darkness, about the need to overcome any fear.
