Alla Ricerca dell’Equilibrio Perduto (In Search of Balance Lost) is the third solo exhibition by Paolo Icaro to be held by Galleria Massimo Minini.

It is no longer just about space, it is a dynamic research. An exhibition curated by Chiara Bertola, who has selected and discussed the works with Paolo. Her essay accompanies the exhibition.

Four different attempts to achieve stability: the first one points towards the sky, visually connecting the Nadir and the Zenith; it is an upward path, a segment of our journey to the sky. The second is circular, centripetal and centrifugal, an eccentric neuronal tension, a round trip which, to be complete, spins on its axis creating a complex orbit. The third is a space (made) of space, physical, an uninterrupted single volume which expands around us and is cut, sculpted, hacked into basic shapes that, like Russian dolls, seek their balance between the inside and the outside.

Lastly: total space, the point of no return, the terminal station of a journey that we just have to embark on.
