SANTISSIMI

June 29, 2018 – September 16, 2018
EXMA Exhbiting and Moving Arts, Cagliari

SANTISSIMI – a duo by Sara Renzetti (1978) and Antonello Serra (1977) – are among the most representative artists of Sardinian new generation, widely appreciated on the national and international scene. Through a rigorous selection of works, the exhibition encompasses their artistic research as it has been developing since 2009, when Renzetti and Serra, after their training in Florence and their individual first steps, chose to work together, starting to shape small and large, maniacally detailed silicone sculptures, not concerning hyperrealism itself, but rather the possibility of faithfully embracing the variety and complexity of the human being.

The sculptures – the silicone becoming similar to the flesh, drawing on suggestions from philosophy, literature and natural history – represent men, women and children surprised in the moment when life passes to death. Bodies are still but never completely static and seem to save a performative attitude, as if they were in transition from one dimension to another, involved in something not yet completed, almost unprepared for the mystery of the end.

Alongside the exhibition, visitors can find themselves immersed in a fascinating and disturbing experience at the same time, enraptured by the restlessness, but also by the mysterious and extraordinary beauty of our existence. Artworks are accompanied by some texts, written by Santissimi themselves and reported in the captions; texts are sometimes informative, sometimes poetic and must be considered an integral part of the creative process.
