Michelangelo Pistoletto’s MASTERPIECE at YBP
Michelangelo Pistoletto has allowed us to welcome you to our YBP offices with his beautiful masterpiece, which we are proud to show you. It allows us to have the Master with us, every day.
The masterpiece â€śDallâ€™Anno Unoâ€ť takes its title from a performance (1991) of the theatre show â€śAnno Unoâ€ť, written and directed by Michelangelo Pistoletto. It is a â€śmirror-paintingâ€ť, one of a series of works M. Pistoletto produced using a technique he developed between 1961 and 1962, which quickly earned him success and recognition on an international scale. In this particular artwork he portrays Maria, his wife. These reflecting pictures laid the foundations for later research, works and the evolution of Pistolettoâ€™s theoretical thinking. “In March 1962 at the Promotrice in Turin I exhibited my first mirror-painting, entitled II presente (The Present). The figure of a man seemed to come forward, as if alive, in the space of the gallery; but the true protagonist was the relationship of instantaneousness which was created between the spectator, his own reflection, and the painted figure, in an ever-present movement which concentrated the past and the future in itself to such an extent as to cause one to call their very existence into doubt: it was the dimension of time itself.” â€”M. Pistoletto.
