Podgorica is to host Rosario Genovese’s exhibition “Poetico Universo”. The Dvorac Petrovica Contemporary Art Centre is presenting the exhibition which is promoted by the Italian Embassy in Montenegro and organised by art director Ermenegildo Frioni. It will include a catalogue with texts written by Francesco Gallo Mazzeo and Marcello Palminteri and a 30-year anthology of Rosario Genovese’s art, collecting his research work from 1987. Attracted by the multitude of poetic forms of the universe, Genovese will lead visitors in an imaginary cosmic journey discovering planets, satellites, solar systems, galaxies, constellations and the fantastic mythological world of stars, filtered through his imagination.
His style has undergone many creative experiences which have led him to use various materials. From 2010, his drawings and paintings have been on canvas and wood, depicting fantastic scenarios from one single star to whole constellations. At times they turn into installations of an imaginary journey with surreal images, proportions, dimensions, spaces, matter, colours, myth and fantasy. The artist prefers to use 3D elements to underline the similarity with the cosmos. Genovese’s latest works, on show in Podgorica, are the product of a visual and cognitive research on binary stars which has generated dual works to imitate the birth and the development of twin stars through his personal poetic expression.
