I MET is the new display entirely dedicated to the recent painting acquisitions of the Massimo Orsini – Mutina for Art collection, realised within Spazio Mutina at Fiorano Modenese.
The starting point of the project is the work by Japanese artist On Kawara, created between 1968 and 1979. A list featuring the names of all the people he met during those years, that describes the personal experience of the encounter in a conceptual way and conveys a universal account of time among the pages of 12 volumes.
Despite adopting a very different language, figurative painting implies just as many encounters and experiences which expand also to the unconscious and to imagination. The featured paintings become an open and incomplete list and a crossroad of gazes: those of the artist, those of the observer, those of who in these images finds something. I MET is not an exhibition but a cue through which the meaning of collecting can be read. It is the new branch of a path among artworks which animates Mutina in a spirit of surprise and sharing.
