On the occasion of the Venice Biennale, Giorgio Andreotta Calò sets about investigating the limits of representation, examining the notion of expectation, that during which we cannot but imagine the advent of the awaited event. Indeed, as the title itself suggests, Ritorno (Return) is a work that reflects on the dimension of constant development, but also on the faculty of generating an elsewhere, imaginary and at the same time real, like the space-time trajectory that Andreotta Calò is following on foot from Amsterdam to Venice, his birthplace. The notion of returning is translated into the act of walking and is evoked by the words of an audio message transmitted in the Carlo Scarpa Sculpture Garden. This becomes a place of absence and expectation, but also the centre towards which the physical act of walking is directed and thus the point where thoughts and the imagination are powerfully projected. By showing the walk not as a heroic or radical undertaking, but rather as a form of human commitment to a body that is also social, this work in progress not only contemplates a world on the point of collapse, but primarily imagines its potential enlightenment.
