Sergio Camporeale

On the border of the real and the fantastic, and in this, resolutely anchored in South American literary and artistic mythology, the works of Sergio Camporeale weave the memory of their own history. Populated with grisly figures, grotesque smiles and absent looks, they speak of the masquerades, the excesses and the ironies of an era marked by dictatorship and dreams of grandeur. These works of derision also tell us about our own fears, our anxieties and an exuberance that is not foreign to the world of today. In this, they touch the archaeological fiber of our everyday life and vibrate our most timeless emotions.
