The artist Domenico Olivero, has created this art event for an exhibition whose inspiration comes from the book "Candide, or Optimism," written by Voltaire in 1759.
The art project was created by re-arranging the entire space of the gallery, transforming it into a unique art work that draws inspiration from the text of the book by Voltaire. This creation is inspired by the randomness of events and their individual perception.
The works propose to create a continuous solicitation of ideas and thoughts that refer to our daily life but also the many other cultural stimuli of our time.
The exhibition is striking for the variety of the type of pieces, created by the artist who is inspired by the suggestion in the different chapters of the book.
The artistic project presents a contemporary sense of tension and is interpreted for today’s times.
The art works are developed in a variety of forms; drawings, images; photos, material objects and reflections that retain their original form and particular details.
"Candido, ma che domande fai?” (Candide, why are you asking?) Is an exhibition where the words take shape so producing a sense of optimistic hope.
A series of artworks that stimulate individual perceptions and reactions in the viewer creating infinite variables, new stories, and pleasant changes.
An event that was created by the magic of a fantasy storys suchas "Candide, or optimism " written by Voltaire in 1759, as true today as it was in the past.
