Different Languages Same Places

Maurizio NannucciBury Art Gallery

Since the mid-1960’s Maurizio Nannucci has been one of the leading figures of European contemporary art. His work explores the interrelations between language, writing and visual images, and employs a wide variety of medium.

The commission for the circular foyer balcony reads as a cycle with the words: DIFFERENT LANGUAGES SAME PLACES DIFFERENT PLACES SAME CULTURE DIFFERENT CULTURES SAME HORIZONS

Four interrelated neon works in different colours were installed in the gallery referring to the spatial context of the gallery and evoking a new perception of the space.
