The intriguing game of camouflage shown in the works of Alberto Raiteri and Massimo Festi bond together a playful fetish imaginary with those mechanisms whom generate malaises, disorders and problems that are tormenting more and more the contemporary human being, pushing to search an improbable remedy in phenomenon or external agents act to nullify conscience and lucidity.
The mask, the plastic folio wrapped over the whole body, the masking tape occluding the sensorial organs desensitizing the erogenous areas, becoming the symbol of the complete de-personification of the human being, pushed in a stereotyped reality, limiting the freedom of action up to the point of erasing the individual sexual identity. Te masks are not only metaphors of the hypocrisy of the society and her fake myth, following the path of the controversial artist James Ensor, but also sawn like the tool for bringing the human being back to the childhood through the playful temporary disguise, following the theory of Baudelaire. The two artists are expressing beautiful these concepts using different tones, now ironic, now polemic, now catchy, and by very different techniques: Alberto Raiteri uses a mixed media painting, while Massimo Festi photography and digital manipulation. The difficulty of get to communicate without protective filters and without feeling ashamed of showing the own nudity and vulnerability, itâ€™s held in trust not only by the amazing work of the two artists, but also to the strong performance by Silvia Guandalini, who portray the masked and censored physicality by wearing and taking away layers of masks up to the point when itâ€™s getting impossible to take away the last mask, being her own face.
