Sinai Phone

From 8.02.2024 to 28.03.2024

Nashira Gallery is hosting the exhibition Sinai Phone by the Campania artist, born in 1987, Emanuele Resce, open from 8 February to 28 March 2024.

For the occasion, the artist exhibited his latest production consisting of sculptures and wall installations made by the assembling of discarded materials. They represent a material – and therefore non-human – speculation on humanity and on the circularity of time (past, present, future).

The elements of these works are clay and iron, but also recurrent are animal bones, car and bicycle wrecks, stickers and spray cans, in a combination of the ancient (of which Resce, especially of texts, has always been a passionate scholar) and the contemporary, the natural and the artificial, the rural and the urban.

The pieces that result from this conjunction of different worlds take on unrecognizable, almost monstrous profiles, in front of which the spectator, wrapped in an almost apocalyptic scenario that testifies to the life that has existed until today, wonders what he is witnessing: is it a beginning or is it an end? The artist, however, does not want to provide answers, but to create a testimony: much life has existed and who knows how much more will still exist, but it is a life that goes beyond the human element and our understanding.
