Turin_ NESXT Exhibition during Artissima _ November 4th to 6th, 2016
Edited by Walter Ruffatto with the collaboration of Irene Finiguerra (BI-BOx Art Space) and Alessandro Lista
Daniele Basso takes part in FONDO AA.VV. - Copie uniche d'artista initiative and joins NESXT - Independent art network where he presents a preview of "Innocenti Bugie" (White Lies) art book – a mirror surface collage inspired by "The Adventures of Pinocchio – A Puppet Story" by Carlo Collodi.
A comment on the artwork:
White lies are considered innocent, but I have never liked this definition.
Lies are never white and pure as snow nor are they innocent, but we all tell lies!
Lies arise from fear, shame, insecurity or they are a means to an end.
Thinking that we never tell lies is a self-righteous pretence, and it is horrid to find out that our life is based on lies.
They are tools used by man and society and they should be governed with common sense and responsibility. Lying is an essential experience to become a “good boy”!
