Two graphic-pictorial images cohabit the space: on one side a column, on the other a man looking backwards with his arms outstretched, which refers to the crucifixion iconography.
“Non Plus Ultra” reflects on the concept of limit, on the sacred need of man to cross the threshold of the known and of logic, to overcome oneself. The spatial limits imposed by the artwork are openings (arches). The limit attracts and rejects, it projects the viewer to infinity, between perspectives and reflections, transparent symbols that merge and get lost, that are confused in the multitude, and multiplied through the serigraphy, raise the questions.
“Non Plus Ultra” is a walk-through silkscreen installation, consisting of 56 sheets of glass, measuring two meters and fifty centimeters for eighty centimeters, printed.
The entire process of creating “Non Plus Ultra” was transformed into a collective experience and taked place in the courtyard of the Museo Ospitale, where the artist and the technician were publicly print the media, to share with the citizens all stages of the realization of the installation: from screen printing to on-site installation.
