Malobertiʼs artistic research draws inspiration from day-to-day events and urban contexts. His observations go beyond the ordinary evidence of everyday experience with a neorealistic approach going towards a visionary direction. The artist puts together an extremely condensed, theatrical narrative and suspenseful atmospheres to watch and feel. Marcello Maloberti also emphasizes the relationship between art and life researching new approaches to merge photography, video, performance, installation, sculpture and drawing, as to form a contemporary Gesamtkunstwerk. In the last years the artist has often evoked in his works the History of Art and classicism, through a performative language and the use of the body, with an interactive impact for the public.
The exhibition, the result of the artistic dialogue between the curator Pierre Bal-Blanc and Marcello Maloberti, is divided in all the three spaces of via Stradella, reconnecting them through visual and conceptual references. The curatorial project is based on a reverse process: the curator will write the curatorial text at the end of the exhibition, rather than before it, as usual practice. This reflects the artists approach to logical and time connections, which he turns upside down, distant from any obvious perspective. The title of the exhibition, Sbandata, alludes to an amorous crush in the classical culture, an incursion in its forms, but also an escape, a Summer wind. The works on display belong to different languages and supports, but come together in a single score of signs and meanings.
