    Title : #5 – 2013
    IT SYMBOLIZES THE MAN THAT, WITHOUT HIS OWN PERSONALITY, TRIES EVERYDAY NEW COMBINATIONS OF MOODS TO SHOW HIMSELF AT HIS BEST.
    Mixed media: plaster, iron, aluminum parts, mixed varnish and pigments and synthetic resin
    Dimensions: 40 x 50 x 20cm

    «9 Visions/9 Plays: The project is about the loss of importance of the manhood in our late times: i’ve made quite my way through that, based on my experience matched up with the medical opinion of a psychologist and sex therapist, doctor Raffaele Bifulco. he followed the creation of each sculpture and compared them with his working experience, taking concepts his patients express and giving to them his medical view. That’s why every sculpture comes with a medical description of the kind of manhood it rapresents. »

    The common shape resulted from 2 references:
    1. The movie “L’ultima donna” by director Marco Ferreri (with Gerard Depardieu and Ornella Muti), in the final scene in which depardieu cuts his penis, as to cut away the origin of all his problems.
    2. the book “Il nome della rosa” by author Umberto Eco. The main character of the book claims that when the rose has passed its beauty, the only memory is its scent.?

    In every vision you will find written all the artworks description plus size/materials/medical comment.

    PSYCHOLOGIST COMMENT:
    «I’m exactly what people expect. I live depending on others. I became everything you want. Idon’t exist, I’m not.»

    ARTIST’S COMMENT:
    You’re feeling pity for him, for his life split by the various looks that his face is able to assume, between stances and scripts. Poor fell ow! What an effort to join together mixed up identity pieces!
    … by the way…, why are you with him?

Cesare Callegari

Born in: 1974

Italy

Emergent Artist

Cesare Callegari, born 1974, graduate in Art and Communication. It’s from communication that all his work about art starts from. He’s always interested in creating social objects. Art as a way to describe his life and the lives of the people around him, taken by the places where he lives and has lived. He uses a mix of tecniques, focused mostly on 3D objects where he works on different scales. He uses plaster of different texutures, artificial self made resins, different kind of metal wires and nails, paper, varnish and acrilic paints.

Cesare Callegari tends to test one by one each material and to combine different mixtures of the same material in order to obtain the best results for each of them. That’s because every single material has to run around and fit perfectly the concept for which the object is created.

He’s fascinated by the psychological acts of the people. About the cause-and-effect by which things happen in the everyday life. About the reasons of general or specific behaviour. And he tries to translate these feelings in the objects he produces.

Cesare Callegari's work is deeply inspired by the music, especially the punk, dark and the new wave culture of the 80’s and can be considered always in a goth view, but read under his will to be playful. His main focus is to create objects that can be easily read by people as reflection of their own reality. That’s why he’s always in his own personal challenge in finding more usable and smartest way to express in sculpting, painting and even in poetry: he has published his first collection of poetry in 2009 and he is finishing the second book.
