08.11.2006 - 07.12.2006
Angeli places his work on a timeless level with ultimate objectivity. Clear cut edges of buildings adjacent to their diffused angles are simultaneously stating these metaphysical stages as a tribute to the romantic. (...) Angeli creates a close-up of the horizon motif. The display details are partial within the artist's field of view, therefore the buildings are mostly cut. The main facade with its rigidity rarely has a small courtyard and is flanked by adjoining buildings which are reaching toward the narrow vestibule. It is impossible to enter the stage, although the depictions are suggestive and the whole ambience is realistically staged. But these views are like intensive dreams of a scary reality. Never viewed and never committed, they are symbols of abandonment and existential loneliness; representative of a silence that is both threatening and hopeful at the same time.
