PATRIZIA CAVALLI | i miei splendidi giorni tutti uguali
Patrizia Cavalli, while tidying up her papers, decided to keep the many daily shopping lists, written over the years, along with series of aluminum foils where intention and chance have left their traces.
The many poetry manuscripts, published and unpublished, here displayed in the mutable physicality of her handwriting – including corrections , notes on margin and extra – literary annotations – also belong to the same aesthetic realm produced by the encounter between intention and chance.
Unique pieces for unique days that look the same but are not, as always happens when a material, whatever it might be, absorbs our provisional actions and, while retaining them, impresses itself making visible the uniqueness of this encounter where abstract will solidifies and inert matter comes alive. All that is generated by this union has such a convincing capacity to exist that it compels us to look at it in admiration.
In June, the new poems collection Datura, will be published by Einaudi.
