Il paesaggio mi illude
O’, Milan, Italy
12 – 30 May, 2014

The exhibition on display at O’ is the result of a collaboration between Alessandro Roma, visual artist, and Nicola Ratti, experimental musician. The show is the conclusive phase of a project started by the latter, together with Mark Templeton, and eventually released as an album named Resophonic. The exhibition is the result of the interaction between visual and audio materials produced by the two artists, which have come together following a process of reciprocal inspiration rather than imposing a rigid structure to connect them. In this two-persons show Roma and Ratti have both reflected on the notion of landscape—hence the title of the exhibition, literally “the landscape deludes me”. In fact Nicola Ratti’s work is based on soundscapes and on their augmentation through the addition of sounds that do not belong to them. On the other side, for the first time Alessandro Roma chose to work on silk, multiplying one of his drawing in order to create a grid or a map. Both artists have worked together in the construction of a delusional landscape made of an interaction of two practices. Visual artworks and soundscape haven’t been simplified to encounter each other but they have rather maintained the complexity of languages and of their readings.
