“The true discovery travel doesn’t consist in finding out new territories, but in having new eyes”(Marcel Proust).
An empty room is like an open box; it can contain new things or simply be a closet for the old ones and stay with the door and the windows just half-closed .
From both ways of escape the energy goes through, together with the transfer of multiple moments.
Life is nothing else but a case in a case, the surprise in a surprise, the dream in the reality and the discovery in the discovery.
In a space shaked by surreal intuitions Ilaria Del monte paints suspended women, brides of the nature, creatures that turn their look beyond the limit of a single dimension.
With hair down, free like bodies that wave in passionate dreamlike experiences.
The fact to be in a place instead of another defines its value and marks out the atmosphere.
Every place can be many different places, it depends on how you can imagine it, on the persons who live there and on the way it is twisted; the breakdown and the play of elements contribute to enlarge the look on the world that observes us and to which the artist gives fascinating scenarios where you can find painting, cinematography and set design recalls.
