The Andrea Morucchio's solo Back in Black exhibition comprises a selection of sculptures, a print and a video where the most obvious link is the black colour. These works are particularly representative of Andrea Morucchio’s art journey, developed in a wide field of research: photography, sculpture, installation, video and performance are the means used throughout more than a decade of continuous experimentation of expressive dimensions and creativity.

Back in Black has a number of works in which the interest in sensory form is never separated from its symbolic or metaphorical level. Forms and meanings refer to and develop a dialogue between sculpture, video, performance and photography and suggesting to Zeitgeist, the spirit of the times we are living. A dark spirit of war, economic crises, ecological disasters scary, populism and “videocracy”. 

Back in Black, as a cromatic metaphor of our contemporary that stimulates ideas and are perhaps even necessary to discover the characteristics of the changing world in which we live in.
