“Thank you for shopping” by Florence Di Benedetto

20 May 2022 @ 20:00 - 19 June 2022 @ 21:00

The artist Florence Di Benedetto, succeeds in entering an intimate dimension, where everyday objects become themselves symbols, domestic icons, within the reach of all.

In this exhibition, “Thank you for shopping!” the artpieces represent “Things” that acquire a real personalization: they are able to speak to the consumer and put them before the overabundance of products and the ease with which our society, up until now, is accustomed quickly acquire them.

The supermarket, then, is a place symbolic of pop culture, where everything is available in infinite quantity and variety. But also a sacred place, a secular temple, a repository of hopes and desires.

Consumerism as a modern religion. Just as believers of all faiths trust rituals and prayers to show them the way, we too, today more than ever, look to objects for the fulfillment of our destiny, the meaning of what we do, and who we are.
In a time in which precariousness and solitude abound, we tend to surround ourselves with things that we imbue with broader and deeper meanings, with the aim of finding consolation, a form of reassurance.

The aesthetic beauty of the works on display makes the immersive experience enjoyable and fun. The viewer becomes an active part of the process, gets involved and leaves satisfied.
