Pierluigi Monsignori Potsy - Artist - His CV
Pierluigi Monsignori Potsy, curriculum
One of the plastic food eco-presses is exhibited for a permanent stay at the MAC Museum of Contemporary Art in Bahia in Brazil.
In 2010, the land art installation "Plastic food" is the latest in a series of installations begun in 2000, characterized by the use of plastic materials. Potsy is convinced that man has an unrequited love with this wonderful and irreplaceable polymer. This work of art is nothing more than an invitation to a walk in an unfortunately present future landscape, which seems distant from our green Umbrian hills, but which in reality is not that far away. A simple reflection, we must reduce the production of waste. We can no longer wait for the unawareness of a distracted future to take away from our children the everyday familiar to us: walking in a field with freshly cut grass, feeling the light scent of hay presses brings us back to contact with nature and this must be a inheritance for all. "Plastic Food" represents what we will experience, what awaits us and which unfortunately is already past-present in other regions. We survive in a society that cannibalizes certainties, which tries in every way to replace the normal nature of all things, living and simple, which has made herbivores carnivores, in a perverse profit logic that in the end has turned against us.
Nature implodes in the frustration in which it pours, sudden discomforts that materialize in new pandemics. Walking through the Potsyvi installation will project you into a snapshot capable of making you understand the real disharmony of an experience next to our daily waste, patches of out-of-tone color, accustomed as we are to the usual wonderful installations of distracted agricultural operators.
A journey that will allow you to embrace different presses of a future-present that none of us would like in our own garden. Inside the installation an eco-press is missing and this is not accidental, several evenings I slept in that vacuum completing the work in its design. I myself in a present future will in fact be disposed of neither more nor less like a bale of compressed plastic. The future generations will find themselves exhuming the bodies of their ancestors and instead of dust they will find non-anatomical parts of who knows what polymer used to "embellish" us and make us feel accepted in society. This work is nothing more than the continuation of plasticflower.
