For this solo exhibition, Marco Scorti has created a series of large-and small-format acrylic paintings and gouaches with a mnemonic function: The various landscapes depicted evoke transit areas, or “border areas”, in which the dichotomy between nature and artefact fades and the traces of human presence reveal a landscape created and shaped over the course of time.
Borders are the central theme of the exhibition and represent geopolitical boundaries while also evoking the concept of forced detachment as symbolised by the mediation between the act of painting and the artist's eye, whereby the artist depicts and interprets the landscape from the specific viewpoint of the observer.
The landscape is rendered in a variety of formats, from vertical to exaggeratedly horizontal, and from a range of different perspectives. The artist portrays a sequence of terraces, cliffs, woods and shores that appear to tell a story, drawing in the viewer as a casual observer of landscapes depicting the meeting and clash between nature and artefact.
