Antonio Colombo presents, for Little Circus – the special project space inside the gallery – a solo show by 108, the pseudonym of Guido Bisagni, one of the first artists to work in the area of post-graffiti art. 

For the exhibition The Rite of Spring 108 has made original works on canvas and paper that develop the relationship between abstract forms and chromatic potential that has always been part of his art. Influenced by artists like Kandinsky, Arp or Burri, for the research they conducted on the relationship between form and color, 108 also makes reference to more distant sources in time and space, such as the expressive sign of cave paintings and the magical attributes of shamanism. 

The investigation proposed on this occasion pivots on the pictorial interpretation of the spring equinox, the point of balance between day and night, summer and winter, as temporary as it is unstable, like the forms assigned the task of evoking it. They are in fact subjected to conflicting energies, identifiable in the chromatic contrasts and in a line that often shifts from curved to jagged. In the parallel between day and night, the color range wavers between luminous and shadowy tones, just as the thought that gives form to the image struggles between rationality and irrationality, logic and chaos, in a dense clash of introspection and emotion.
