MASSIMILIANO TOMMASO REZZA (1967)
Sometimes everyday scenes do not provide a plausible and comprehensive explanation or reason for their occurrence. We witness something that escapes us. Every response is suspended, everything points to direct experience, to being there more than thinking, to surprise effect more than recognition of patterns and behavior. We have loved something that remains happily hidden from the light of day.
(Massimiliano Tommaso Rezza)
