Mantua, Andrea Boyer's drawings and photographs on display at Casa di Rigoletto

From April 6 to May 5, 2019, the House of Rigoletto in Mantua is hosting 'Lucid Deceptions,' a solo exhibition by Andrea Boyer.

From April 6 to May 5, 2019, the Casa di Rigoletto in Mantua hosts Andrea Boyer ’s exhibition Lucidi inganni curated by Carlo Micheli. On display are about fifty drawings and photographs that aim to deceive reality, dismantling the representational box, disrupting the units of place of time and space. Thus critic Manuela Accinno: “Time itself, with the interpretation of reality that depends on it, is one of the keys to interpreting these works. Photography and drawing, the main means of expression used by the artist, become emblems of their own specific time. Drawing, which in itself would represent the time of being, and photography, which by its nature captures time in its becoming, in Andrea Boyer’s works meet to create a third time, another reality in which being is identified with becoming.”

Carlo Micheli declares instead, “A difficult game to play, on the surface, but in fact captivating and exciting. The great bluff and the great beauty, we will discover, coincide for our gratification, useless and unproductive, the same as in solving a mathematical problem, or a particularly intricate detective story... But Boyer’s images are gloves to be picked up, for those who still have the desire and the need to be amazed.”

Andrea Boyer was born in 1956 in Milan, Italy. He attended the Liceo Artistico, and theBrera Academy of Fine Arts (set design). He worked as a photographer (1978-2000) at his own Studio in the commercial field with collaborations in fashion, advertising, publishing, and industry.
