Marco Cingolani brings Perpetuum Mobile project to Moresco's Torre Visual Arts Center


From Dec. 18, 2021 to Jan. 30, 2022 at TOMAV (Moresco Tower Visual Arts Center), Perpetuum mobile, a project by Marco Cingolani dedicated to linguistic procedures that focus attention and tensioactivity.

Artist Marco Cingolani (1985) is featured at TOMAV (Torre di Moresco Centro Arti Visive) in Moresco (Fermo, Italy), from Dec. 18, 2021 to Jan. 30, 2022 with Perpetuum mobile, a project dedicated to linguistic procedures that focus attention and tensioactivity. As curator Antonello Tolve explains, the works created by the artist for the spaces of the Moresco Tower are subtle environmental interventions with which Cingolani makes the laws of classical electrodynamics, in particular electromagnetic interaction, his own in order to conceive ductile gears, hooked on matière subtile, charged with attractive and inclusive energies.

“Marco Cingolani’s focus on drawing, understood as a scratch in power beyond the flat surface,” the curator further explains, "is characteristic of a linguistic attitude that aims to dematerialize the paper support in order to transform it into pneuma (πνε?μα), into immaterial matter of a narrative closely linked to dwelling. Made intangible and invisible in order to enter precisely into the realm of theápeiron (?πε?ρων), of the unlimited and indefinable present in sensible reality, drawing - everted, bodied, connected to the Lebenswelt - becomes in fact for Cingolani the perfect space in which to act and through which to plastically articulate the line in the surrounding environment in order to model, since the first iron threads of 2011(Outside or Inside, Limit, some wonderful Untitled), a totality that absorbs within it also the public of the work. A phrase in which elegant pulsing tangles, doodles or even powerful myokinetic stabilizations alternate, is followed in 2013 (see at least Junction and Anthropometry where we find for the first time the use of neodymium magnets) by a more broken and fragmented line that goes on to delineate in space some forms determined by points of contact, by welds, by sutures. These are suspended elements that at a distance of five years, between 2018 and 2019 (with the construction attempts, with the projections, with the provisional structure or with the study of oxidized metal and theEsser mio frale), they become exquisitely geometric elaborations, reflections articulated as lattices, variable architectures, hints of bodies, projections of thought in action, circuits increasingly adherent to an idea of contextual sculpture, constantly readjustable and variable."

Distributed in space as small tempos and as ambient cutouts, the states of tension and persistent forms of cohesion made by Cingolani over the past two years emotionally redefine the exhibition context with the idea of posing themselves as minimal bodies, as attitudes, as processes, as perpetually mobile apparatuses, whose mobility is determined by the peaks, troughs, and oscillations of light during the hours of the day. The works, as the artist announces, consist of metal elements and small magnets in a precious indication of poetics. These are works that intend to continue a reflection on the concept of fragility; they use the same mediums and maintain a hermetic and introspective approach, but deal more deeply with the concept of strength, understood as a form of resistance, as a force of resistant cohesion between the various elements that make up the work.

The exhibition will open to the public on Dec. 18, 2021 at 5 p.m. You can visit the exhibition every Saturday and Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m. or by appointment. For all information you can visit Tomav’s website.
