The title of the exhibition recalls a sentence by William Shakespeare’s King Lear from the 1843 Giulio Carcano’s translation: “I will do such things,– What they are, yet I know not: but they shall be The terrors of the earth” Beside describing the generating thought the exhibition, “Lo Spavento della Terra” reminds to the gut emotion amplifying the sensory perception of what happens around us in a moment of apparent risk, making us more alert and receptive.

As in the words of the curator Andrea Kvas “the matter of the movement, of creating objects forcing the perception’s dynamic, undermining the passive contemplation, is still fundamental. All this origins from a desire for exploring, diving in the unknown: the desire of being scared.

The artworks on display all have multiple possibilities of going in deep dimensions, where the images’ neat outlines leave room for grey areas of doubt, introspection and solitary journeys. From the scare arise gestures that, in their recurrence, generate, as mantras, infinite paths to follow.”
