L’ultima volta… ancora
Andrea Saltini completed his residency with an exhibition opened in the ´aceNITE of March 16, the first of 2016. The work of the Italian artist occupied the Dialogue Space and the Central Hall of the ´ace house.
Andrea worked in painting on paper with pieces in different sizes, and in some cases he used colors beyond his habit of working mainly with black and white. We can say that two themes appeared in his series: the one he initially planned to develop during his residence in Buenos Aires –tango– but also works in which the human figures are accompanied by animals or appear in surreal postures. For the tango, he produced a composition that took the character of a couple of dancers who get closer and closer until they become one, analyzing the intentional or sometimes forced connections between dancers, the idea of how one person is absorbed by the other and how the two may become a third different unity, or how one erases the other.
