  • About the work
Stefano Spera _ TEMPLE NOT TEMPLE, Earth View, 2021, oil on wood panel and vinyl print, panel 30x60 cm / vinyl 128x60,5 cm

TEMPLE NOT TEMPLE, Earth View, oil on panel and print on vinyl, is a suspended, deceptive image, showing the pictorial reconstruction of the temple of Mercury in Baia (in the Bacoli area of Naples). Once again in this case, the pictorial figuration captures and formalizes a popular belief, as this place was never a place of worship, but rather a spa from the Roman era. The texture (print on vinyl) highlights the anchoring points of the marble that covered the structure in the past. These anchor points, which give the exhibition its title, represent Stefano Spera's attempt to show us that painting, and his works in particular, are objects of resistance. They document traces, calling on us to fight against the excessive power of the present in favour of a possible future.
