Duetto - double solo show

Giuseppe Chiari | Luca Massaro
Viasaterna is pleased to present Duetto, a cross-generational two performers play featuring the experimental work of Giuseppe Chiari (Firenze, 1926 – 2007) and the multi-disciplinary practice of Luca Massaro (Reggio Emilia, 1991).

The term “Duetto” was coined to indicate a piece of music for two solo voices who sing alternately or together. On this note, combining in a rhythmical arrangement selected works on paper and collages made by Chiari from the late 70s to the early 90s with sleek “canvasses” and larger than life sculptures from Massaro’s recent Dizionario Vol.1 (Art Paper Edition, 2023). The show expands on the innate performative properties of language and disputes arbitrary binaries like matter and representation, reading and seeing, literalism and metaphor.

Concerns on the contamination of image and language and the use of techniques of manipulation to disjoint content from context are the fil rouge throughout the display as both artists undertake a formal and semiotic investigation into the visual impact of the written text.
