The space mixes baroque interior design with rough cement and becomes the base of a bold curatorial project:two annual exhibitions, a focus on the artists who literally invade the walls for 6 months. The entire environment becomes a cradle for an artistic idea which dies after six months: ten artworks for each artists, serigraphies and t-shirts with drawings exclusively realised by the two artists who, on the walls of the last room, tell a story that after six months dies to be reborn.
The End Is the Beginning is about the archetype of beginning and end.
"For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered." (Genesis 7,17 7, 19)
The biblical recount Noah's Ark inspired Lucamaleonte and David Diavù Vecchiato to realise twenty artworks on wood which reveal their concept of beginning and end, death and salvation. Each artist recreates on broken boards the tragedy of the ending which is seen as a point of rebirth, an Omega merging with Alpha in a love and death embrace.
