HYPNEROTOMACHIA UNIVERSALIS

2010-2012

Hypnerotomachia Universalis is a project by Paolo Bottarelli inspired on the paradoxes of the universe and of the infinite.
Recalling the title of the allegorical romance "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili" by Francesco Colonna published in Venice at the end of the XV century with the notable and sophisticated xylographies by Aldo Manuzio, the artist has elaborated a series of old prints in a wall installation as a mental circuit and an oneiric travel towards a possible and personal "event horizon".
