Statement

Marco Battaglini: Multiple Overlapping Realities

Through a subtle interplay of multiple realities overlapping in the chronotope, Battaglini evidences the contradictions in mental models about the temporal contrast (chronological), and the cultural and linguistic barriers.

Compositions which at first seem 'logicals', immediately reveal temporal and spatial limitations that are disruptive in the interpretation of reality.

Battaglini invites us to think that in today's global village, with the 'democratization' of culture, the evolution of knowledge, information immediacy, immersed in the heterogeneity, the Patchwork Culture forces us to confront with a need understanding beyond our geographical boundaries of time.

Probably the uniqueness of the Italian artist Marco Battaglini is to conceptualize the possible coexistence of the ideals of classical beauty with the anti-aesthetic, the combination of the divine and refined with the vulgar, through a composition that can complement different realities in an eternal instant.

His research of multidimensionality leads him to overlap different temporal, spatial and cultural realities, where everything seems to make sense…

This is ultimately the Battaglini’s purpose: remove barriers that distort the perception of reality.
