Tablinum: is proud to present its annual program of thematic exhibitions – LUST FOR ART – dedicated to the artists and promoted by our curatorial department.
Following the success of “Art Expo – FEED THE WORLD WITH ART”, which recorded a total of 42,590 visitors last year, this time we have decided to look at art through the eyes of those who both love it passionately and collect it. Art was an essential factor in the development of our society and the passion has been its motor.
As Flaubert wrote: “If there is something to worship on this earth and among all Nothingness, if there is something holy, pure, sublime, something that should support this huge desire of infinity and vagueness which is called the soul, then this is the art “.
That is why we wish to celebrate our LUST FOR ART through the works of a selected shortlist of contemporary artists from several European nations.
We want to do this by being guided by the feelings we experience in works of art.In a century in which culture, and therefore also art is its lifeblood, too often brushed aside or subjected to an extraneous logic, we believe it is important to dwell upon this sensitive awareness.
Art and aesthetic enjoyment: art possesses the power to reawaken the spiritual potential that lies dormant within each individual.
Art stimulates our desire and also our sense of aesthetics together with our lust for possession.
This perception embodies and implies not only the admiration of art but also the experience of an elaboration of feelings.
By means of these art exhibitions, we will investigate this aesthetic mechanism which art triggers within us by examining all our perceptions. At first glance, art attracts our attention and then deeply penetrates our inner reflection and our aesthetic enjoyment.
Artistic libido is a psychological and creative energy located within the mind: the brain and creativity resemble a puzzle whose pieces consist of language and perception.
We invite you to discover yourselves through art and its universal language.
LUST for ART 2016 will be hosted from 1st July 2016 to 30 September in the charming Museum and Botanical Garden of Villa Carlotta on Lake Como.
