Time is a constant in Francesca Leone’s works. Rust is her messenger, a presence oxidizing on metal, scratching it, scraping it. Color is her cure, laying her own story on that of the matter. It is in this dialogue of memories that she builds flowers like stars, gardens like sky, a colorful firmament of waste, rough stalactites and stalagmites, walls and banners made of sheet metal and color. In a distracted and superficial everyday life, Francesca Leone’s installations suggest a revolutionary act: “taking your time”, allowing yourself the privilege of the gaze and of thought. Being and Time, Time and Nature. With silent elegance and ruthless precision, the artist reminds us of the urgency of rethinking man and his being in the world.
