Doris Ghetta, Ortisei
Johannes Bosisio and Pietro Moretti
Galleria Doris Ghetta presents a dialogue between two young artists, Johannes Bosisio and Pietro Moretti, who reflect on bodies and on the relationship between human beings, as well as with our past and our future.
Johannes Bosisio (1994, Bolzano, Italy) explores the urban landscape in search of technological ruins such as car wrecks and metal components that he transforms into sculptures with an aggressive aesthetic: steel, metal, mirrors, silicones and screws constitute his cold, shiny and flawless grammar. Interested in the relationship between man and machine and in the utopian dream of technology, Bosisio bridges with the projection of the past and imagines what will remain in the future of this technology that seems perfect but is subject to the wear and tear of time.
Pietro Moretti (1996, Rome, Italy) presents oil paintings and watercolours interweaving narratives between the everyday and the fantastic, questioning the ambivalence of emotions in intimate relationships, the complexity of belonging and identity within male dynamics. Drawing inspiration from the atmospheres of fairy tales and fables, comic strip and elements of the grotesque, his works focus on the body, which is the medium through which we relate, dialogue and clash with the values and expectations of a given social context. The scenes portrayed with expressionist colours in Moretti’s works create a familiar universe, alienating and onyric at the same time.
