On Tuesday 28 April 2005, A arte Studio Invernizzi presents a solo exhibition of Michel Verjux's works related to the gallery's space.

Michel Verjux works with the act of seeing as the locus of the encounter with reality: in the presence of matter through the light, it is possible to acquire consciousness of the specific language of the substantiality being instituted and start a new form of communication. The potentialities of this communication may have no truth other than the link with the visible: the reality of the situation is not metaphysical - it may limit itself to being metalinguistic, and take this path to reach its foundations just the same. In the world of language, pretence is always an active metaphor, a link to reality.

One of the fundamental aspects of Michel Verjux's work is its dialogue with the situation - in other words, with a context that is investigated and assimilated not only with regard to its morphological, structural and architectural aspects, but also concerning its established, active identity. Consequently Verjux's work is not purely - or even primarily - architectural, but rather it is fundamentally anthropological. This anthropological dimension involves the appropriation and necessarily active intervention in the very course of the cognitive process: thus Verjux's work tends towards a functional deconstruction, the reduction of the signifier as a vehicle of the new meaning.

On the occasion of exhibition, a bilingual catalogue will be published, including an essay by Marco Scotini, the images of the works installed in the gallery, a poem by Carlo Invernizzi and bio-bibliographical notes.
