Goldwatch, Villa Mirabello, Vittoriale degli Italiani - Gardone (BS)
Ends 31 December
The works on view at Villa Mirabello are the first en-plain-air reportages painted at the beginning of March 2020 (during the lockdown): these are reserches from which the entire GOLDWATCH project generated.
For the visitors of the Vittoriale it is an opportunity to discover the secret side of the evolution of an artistic project and an opportunity to appreciate the most intense and analytical part of the artist whose "white dogs" have kept company to il Vate (the Poet) at the top of the Vittoriale part (at the Mausoleum).

Goldwatch was born as a family project on the 20th of March 2020. Due to the abrupt sequestration the family was split between two households.
It was imagined and materialised over 48 days throughout my Instagram profile (@velascovitali)
It’s a narration of a peculiar period of physical isolation unfolded in a series of images depicted in confinement within the walls of a garden adjacent to the studio. It's a metaphor of the moment in life in which the hours are all the same and like the space, have acquired new dimension. Compelled to new intimacy both time and space have to be measured in somehow different units.
GOLDWATCH was shown at ASSAB ONE gallery in Milan and is currently on display at Il Circolo in Bellano
The sculpture "Landing" is installed in the Internal Court of Mole Vanvitelliana, in Ancona
