Emilio Vedova. Non Dove
Italy, 2021, 35'
A film. An exhibition. A documentary.
This video is all of these, and it is a brand new genre of film: a film exhibition.
And at the same time it traces a path in the art of one of the protagonists of the twentieth century: Emilio Vedova.
The film is testimony to an anthological exhibition built to be filmed and exists only as a film exhibition. It is the story of how an exhibition is assembled, and of how Emilio Vedova himself did it.
It is the story of the Magazzino del Sale which in itself constitutes a Venetian story enhanced by the genius of Renzo Piano.
In all this stands out the magnetic figure of Vedova and his evocative and suggestive words, and the interviews with leading figures in the Vediovan world and in the history of art in general: Philip Rylands, Alfredo Bianchini, the curator Fabrizio Gazzarri and a memory of Germano Celant.
