Invented and curated by Raffaele Gavarro, ENOLA PLAY combines the work of Pierluigi Calignano with that of Andrea Contin and Lorenzo Scotto di Luzio.
ENOLA PLAY starts with the idea of play not so much as a process of learning and education, as in the metaphorical sense of the evolution-becoming of time and space.
Obviously this is a stimulus for reflection stemming from the "tragic play" on which Nietzsche constructs a central part of his thought.
Returning to this reflection in the light of new developments in play – brought about by new technologies – which with increasing clarity appear as a metaphor for the "cosmic game", seems essential not only in the sphere directly related to the new technologies, but also and above all in areas in which their implications are only apparently secondary.
ENOLA PLAY presents works, in fact, that have nothing to do with new technologies.
The works are three installations, one by each artist, that act directly on everyday life and the domestic environment, transfigured in a tragically playful dimension.
The installations are accompanied by a series of drawings and graphic works.
ENOLA PLAY also features a catalogue with a wealth of photographic documentation and a text by the curator.
