closed Sensitive meetings: Paolo La Motta looks at Capodimonte

The show

Curated by Sylvain Bellenger

The exhibition Sensitive encounters: Paolo La Motta looks at Capodimonte, and brings the work of the Neapolitan artist Paolo La Motta (1972) to the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte for the first time.

The work of Paolo La Motta relates to some of the works of the museum, chosen by him, of different techniques and different eras, urging an unusual reflection on art, as a history of sensitivity, and allowing to reveal unexpected meanings. The artist tells that as a boy, playing in the Capodimonte Forest beyond the closing time, he was afraid to jump over the wall.

Like to think that the young Paolo has never really come out of the Capodimonte Woods, and that his fears have been won with his art that comes from an uninterrupted dialogue with the works of the great collection of the museum.

The plastic sensibility of his works is not a prison of a specific school or of a single artistic period: the Renaissance, the seventeenth century, the nineteenth century Neapolitan and the abstractionism, discovered right in the Bourbon Palace, are well married in his paintings.

La Motta is interested in all the possibilities of pictorial language and makes his work irrefutable proof of the role that the Museum of Capodimonte has had and continues to have on contemporary art.
