“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.
