Gnaga (Life Masks) – sculpture
Gnaga, by the artist Daniele Basso, belongs to the “Life Masks” project. A project that honors the city of Venice through the reinterpretation, with an ironic eye, of the most famous masks of the Venetian tradition. Clad in new meanings, between art and imagination, they help us think about the multiple folds of life, and smile of the thousand faces of ourselves. Each mask is interpreted in a deep and saturated shade of dark blue, which softens the folds of the shape: you must get closer to distinguish them. Similarly, you must get close to people who wear a mask, to unmask them!
Gnaga is the mask worn by men disguised as maidens in a sort of role exchange game. Today, the person who wears is like a court jester daring to talk without fears, free to tell everything and its contrary. Irony, pleasantness and lightness sow the seed of doubt and protect the person against the truths so revealed.
