Enfiteusi I
1987 - corten, mirrors

This artwork consists of two pieces that, although closely linked thematically, have been exectued on two different sites. The artist began his work inside the fattoria, placing two large triangular mirrors diagonally across from each other in the corners of the room. The result is a sophisticated play of strong architectural imbalance. The ceiling beams, as well as the corners of the room, have been defined by corten steel beams, one of which passes through the wall above the door and appears in the corridor, signalling those who enter from the hallway.

Enrico Castellani

Enrico Castellani was born in Castelmassa (Rovigo) in 1930. He lives and works in Celeno di Viterbo.
In 1959, together with Piero Manzoni, he founded the Azimuth review and the Gallery of the same name, both initiatives destined to leave an indelible mark on the Italian art scene. Among Castellani's recent one-man shows we recall the ones at Palazzo Fabroni, Pistoia (1996); Galleria civica d'arte contemporanea, Trent (1999), Fondazione Prada, Milan (2001); Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow (2005-2006); Galleria Fumagalli, Bergamo (2006-2007); Studio Dabbeni, Lugano (2007); Libera Arte Contemporanea, Rome (2008); Haunch of Venison, New York (2009).

He has also taken part in many group shows of critical note such as "Monochrome Malerei" (Kunstmuseum, Leverkusen, 1960), "The Responsive Eye" (MOMA, New York, 1965), "Zero Italien" (Galerie der Stadt, Esslingen, 1995-1996), "The Italian Metamorphosis" (Guggenheim Museum, New York, 1999).
