SANDY SKOGLUND  “Visionary”

 

Si inaugura sabato 11 luglio 2009 presso il Museo Pino Pascali di Polignano a Mare (Bari) la mostra personale di Sandy Skoglund “VISIONARY” in contemporanea con la prestigiosa antologica che si tiene a Venezia, Palazzo Giovanelli, in occasione della Biennale.

 

L’artista realizza personalmente tutti gli oggetti che appaiono nelle fotografie, allestisce infatti gran parte delle sue composizioni visionarie come dei veri set cinematografici, un unico scatto fotografico diviene l’opera finale.  Definite sculture-fotografiche la Skoglund mette in scena ambienti urbani esasperati da una condizione di alienazione dalla realtà, la visione della middle-class americana restituisce un ritratto iper-realistico e insieme surreale dell’America oggi;un paesaggio metropolitano molto inquietante nel quale appaiono persone reali insieme a manichini o animali in gesso dipinti in colori irreali ma che si muovono con assoluta normalità come attori di un  teatro dell’assurdo.

L’ossessione della moda e dell’apparire si trasforma in un ambiente dai colori accecanti il cui unico oggetto ripetuto  continuamente è la gruccia per gli abiti;  la mondanità di un party fa sì che i suoi partecipanti siano esseri antropomorfi ricoperti dalla testa ai piedi di pop-corn e patatine; nelle tipiche villette a schiera tutte uguali si muovono indisturbati scoiattoli viola e corvi neri tra l’indifferenza di scialbi abitanti; un ordinario interno d’ufficio viene sommerso da improbabili foglie azzurre mentre gatti verdi radioattivi invadono le strade delle grandi città. L’artista crea l’inautenticità della situazione  e la normalità diviene una a-normalità accettata con tranquillità: tutto è vero e tutto è falso.

Con l'introduzione di elementi e colori insoliti in una scena di banale quotidianità, Sandy Skoglund, mette in crisi lo spettatore, improvvisamente catapultato in un ambiente fantastico che risponde solo alla logica del sogno o dell’incubo, uno spazio senza tempo dove muoversi perdendo le proprie certezze. L’artista statunitense  presenta a Polignano una selezione di fotografie dal 1987 al 2008 e alcuni interessanti video sul back-stage preparativo delle opere.
