BODIES. If the first thing we notice in Bergonzi’s art is a harmony of contrasts, it is here expressed as a confrontation between two solid entities generating energy and light; this is chemistry, a chemical reaction of compatibility. Our bodies hold all our experiences and emotions. They are not just envelopes for our souls, but letters eloquently expressing our identities. Physicality reminds us of our body’s limitations , fragility, and temporality. This triggers a desire to escape and free ourselves from corporeality. Bodies appear to be floating in a void, or water, representing the unconscious mind.
The mind appears as a layer between the soul and the external world, a filter made of thoughts and beliefs, the ego which impedes the higher self. One wears various masks to hide, confront, and face the outside world… and relationships. The mind is a double-edged weapon. It can lead us either to clarity and enlightenment, or to shadow, where it obfuscates, leading us to illusions, fears, and the inability to distinguish projections from facts. Until we can discipline the mind and free ourselves from its grip we are as enchained as Plato’s cave dwellers.
