The Writer by Giancarlo Neri
This work, as Neri himself explains, “celebrates the solitude of the writer”. It symbolizes the creative process of writing, which “obliges” the writer to isolate himself from the outside world. By estranging himself from the reality surrounding him, the writer remains alone at the desk where he works. By placing The Writer in the open spaces of the city parks, the confines between the exterior and the interior world, between open and closed spaces, are broken down. This work annuls the limits imposed by exhibition spaces and takes its place harmoniously in areas frequented by the public on a daily basis, installing a profound relationship with the surrounding nature.
