from the project report | “A schizophrenic doesn’t forget. A schizophrenic accumulates ”
Serial accumulator of social urgencies returned through the wisdom of a gesture – declined in differents expressive mediums among which, an unprecedented pictorial cycle – the duty which Mustafa Sabbagh most deeply respects, recognizable in every stage of the anthological project as well as in every single project of the exhibition, is the celebration of man, of his skin as a jar, of his dissociation as an urgency of non-alignment.
The exhibition path is located inside the church of San Giacomo, an integral part of San Domenico Museums, where the installation takes shape with two impressive structures: a wall made of wood treated according to the ancient Japanese technique of the shou sugi-ban, as a support of the artist’s photographic memory; and a structure in carbon coke, to contain his unedited pictorial cycle, new declination of the series “Honor to Black” through the medium of painting.
