Guendalina Salini

Picture: Antonello's Anagram

....Senti Lontano?

ali sonnolente
   elio salato, lieto
onesto lento?

E il sole?
E' anello o solido?

Indolentemente - tensione lanosa

Dolmen o Atlas?
mente o melodia?
idea o nota?

Lodiamo l'insolito! L'anomalia!
Solo antidoto, solo nesso,
sola lealta'.
(solo assioma, Antonello.)

Picture: "Antonello's Anagram"


The notion of restoration is central to the work of Guendalina Salini. However restoration here is not to be understood as historical reconstruction, rather it serves to disclose the internal dynamic which is at the genesis of the image.

The work brings into play images belonging to the history of art and recontextualise them. By "redrawing" the image the artist intends to open it to a spatial-temporal suspension, a suspension that places the emphasis on the process of art itself.
