Palermo, October 1. Absolute purity, a fascinating architecture and the work of a refined artist are the ingredients of the Bianco Palermo project exhibited at the Francesco Pantaleone Contemporary Art Gallery of Palermo.
Per Barclay signed a site-specific work for Palermo by using one of the most hidden and mystical places in town, the 17-century oratory of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, one of the most interesting specimens of a distant beauty combined with strict aesthetic rules, although still with many superimpositions, from a Baroque culture until the Neoclassical period.
It is in this place that Per Barclay has created a time detached from any reference to the real world, to return, through his large-size works, a sequence of unrepeatable, rarefied and suspended moments.
