Catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition "Earthquakes", staff of the sculptures Alberto Gianfreda, Banking System, Milan, 29 January – 26 March 2014 (Museum Canova Possagno from 5 April to 11 May 2014.
Alberto Gianfreda presents a collection of seven large sculptures and new drawings are designed solely for spaces Bank System in Milan.
The exhibition is based on the contrast between the geological age of our planet, considered young, and our social system, inversely old and outdated, but are united by a common destiny: continuous shock, fluctuations, collapses, reversal of plans. Hence the title of the exhibition: “earthquakes”, or earthquakes. Of an earthquake can not be established, if not at the end, the start time, predict the term or entity, and especially the outcome.
The exhibition tells then, through a group of unpublished works, the results of a "shock" that created sculptures far from being absolute icons but the only destination of a process of transformation, manipulation, alteration of objects and materials.
Marble, terracotta, metal, wood and fabric are some of the materials that characterize the large-scale works on display, together with the related projects.
