“I wanted to enrich my recipe book by cooking a series of spaghetti to digital sauce experimental.”Triptych of zinc engravings made with the use of toner, seasoned with aquatints and shaped Japanese paper bottoms; one dyed with a carmine red to give more taste. each cut is flavoured with a monotype that recalls the idea of container, able to collect the engraved spaghetti.
Antonello Apollonio was born in Lecce, after high school he attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, he graduated in Graphic Art and is graduating in the specialty of Decoration for Architecture. After arriving in Bologna, in addition to solo projects, he collaborated with several Bolognese artists who introduced him to the graphic and decorative world. At this time his personal artistic process led him to create large works with wires and nails, freeing himself from traditional techniques to try to break the usual patterns and trying to find alternative connections, with a look towards the past, through the way of working typical of the craftsman.
“The architectural imagination in recent years has been enriched more and more by less narrow constructions in reality, leading the observer and the observation towards mental images. This abstraction of space finds its definition in “architectural imagery”: the place of the mind in which space has no boundaries, no physical laws, in which stories, social perspectives and intersubjective fantasies are projected, in fact, this historical and artistic moment is undergoing a real change of direction, which even leads the objectivity of the physical thing, of construction, towards an abstraction.The visual arts fully interweave with the Architectural Imaginary and produce an unexpected effect in the observer. it comes out a composite mental image that brings from the depths of ourselves, from our fantasies, from our unconscious, a mental and material map through the traces of memory: an inner place.
