Volume published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at the Nuova Galleria Morone in Milan (19 May – 1 July 2016).

In this project, with a very incisive title: Man, Forgotten (Man, Forgotten) presented for the 56th Venice Biennale, the artist Alec Von Bargen identifies himself as a contemporary Prince of Denmark (Hamlet, ed), placing himself in an autobiographical way through a dialogue of speculative growth with himself. […]
With this new project he places himself at the centre, but at the same time it puts each of us at the center.
Man, Forgotten it is basically an inner dialogue: the "child" becomes aware of having become a man, it is a continuous unraveling along the three axes of existence: the sky, man and the earth.
The great mother earth, from which everything is born and to which everything returns.
The monumental and installation work involves the viewer through a solitary figure – which can be any of us – in a vast, almost unreal landscape, but at the same time palpable being natural.
Alec Von Bargen creates a staging of life where man is prone to introspection and speculation.
Each spectator must imagine that he is alone on an immense deserted beach, where the wind and the sun scratch our face and the continuous sound of the sea metaphorically marks the time. Who knows how many times in our growth we have asked ourselves the following questions: Who we are? Where do we come from? Where do we go?
