The Third Paradise – Between Obverse and Reverse

“The Third Paradise project consists of leading the artifice, that is science, technology, art, culture and politics, to give life back to Earth. The third Paradise means the passage to a new level of planetary civilisation, which is indispensable to ensure the survival of humankind.” (Michelangelo Pistoletto)

Partners & Mucciaccia are proud to present THE THIRD PARADISE – BETWEEN OBVERSE AND REVERSE by the legendary artist Michelangelo Pistoletto, in collaboration with Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto and RAM radioartemobile.

The title of the show refers to a new series of works by the artist that explores the relation of the two sides of the mirror - the reflective one and the opaque - and the development of the form. This research begins with the art piece “Frontee retro, alto e basso – Trittico” which presents the symbol of the Third Paradise formed by four semi-circular mirrors – two obverse and two reverse. The symbol of the Third Paradise created by the artist is a reconfiguration of the mathematical infinity sign made of three consecutive circles. The Third Paradise is the third phase of humanity, realised as a balanced connection between artifice and nature.
