“Dark room. The frame of a boat hangs, suspended. A cascade of light fibres flows downwards and the wires are arranged on the ground, like the tentacles of a motionless Medusa, beyond time limits.” Amongst the protagonists of the international art scene, Adrian Paci uses a straightforward language

lacking rhetoric in investigating the human condition with refined formal synthesis.

In his works migration, which he experienced in the first person, is sublimated into universal research on the indefinite nature of the human being and on the complexity of social, political and cultural dynamics intrinsic to contemporary life. The project Di queste luci si serviraÌ la notte (Lights to Serve the Night) underlines the ability to narrate our times and describes the perpetual transit of man, assimilated to the continuous flow of water and its cathartic power.
