about.

The most familiar objects can lead to the most worrying enigmas – this iron key –  here, in front of me, on my table, like any object, has an invisible story that you would never think of. Twenty years ago it was hidden in the heart of a rock, under raw ore. Before being extracted from the earth with a blow from a pickaxe, the iron block that gave origin to this key already existed, imprisoned by blind stone, for a few billion years. Even further back in time, this metal of which the key is made (the nucleus of iron is the most stable element of the universe), already existed and was travelling in interstellar space in the guise of a cloud containing most of the heavy elements necessary for the formation of our solar system.

This extract, taken from a conversation between two physicists, Jean Gutton and Grichka Bogdanov, is indicative of Alberto di Fabio’s interest in and attitude towards the secret and invisible vital energy of the mineral kingdom. His work develops around the revelation and formalisation of the transformative and hermetic nature of the geological world.

This reality, seemingly immobile but in reality in continuous movement, is rendered vibrant and organic in the ordered fluid absorption and layering of colour on the paper. Immobility and dynamicity, aggregation and changeability of the ground contribute to the freeing of an image that formalises and preserves the origin of the universe and the primordial nature of such a vision.

In this first solo show Alberto Di Fabio exhibits paperworks.
