Henry Moore. Firenze riparte dal contemporaneo.

Henry Moore. Firenze riparte dal contemporaneo.

di Giulia Angeli – 29 gennaio 2021

 

Non è facile parlare e far parlare del contemporaneo a Firenze, simbolo universale della fioritura rinascimentale. La mostra che il Museo Novecento dedica ad Henry Moore, scultore inglese classe 1898 e scomparso a 88 anni nell’agosto 1986, si pone esplicitamente come una ripartenza culturale per la città del giglio dopo i durissimi mesi che hanno visto chiuse le istituzioni museali. Ma, a ben guardare, si può dire che questo evento sia parte di un ambizioso e più ampio progetto di ridefinizione dell’immagine canonica della capitale toscana.

Non è la prima volta che Firenze ospita un’esposizione interamente dedicata all’artista inglese: era successo nel 1972 e in quell’occasione le monumentali e sinuose sculture di Moore furono esposte al Forte Belvedere. Insomma, difficile competere con la meravigliosa scenografia del 1972!

Per questo Henry Moore. Il disegno dello scultore, a cura di Sebastiano Barassi, Head of Henry Moore Collections and Exhibitions e Sergio Risaliti, Direttore artistico del Museo Novecento, propone un punto di vista diverso e non una banale ripetizione dell’esperienza passata: ecco quindi una presentazione della varia e abbondantissima produzione grafica. Si possono trovare disegni a penna, acquerellati, a carboncino, interamente in bianco e nero oppure densi di colore. Un’attività quotidiana che permetteva allo scultore di fissare sulla superficie bidimensionale ciò che il suo occhio coglieva dell’oggetto tridimensionale che aveva davanti a sé. Un processo di studio continuo ed indefesso, testimoniato per esempio dai numerosissimi pezzi dedicati alle mani che si avvicinano, si toccano, si stringono e guardano al bozzetto scultoreo che da essi probabilmente derivò. Ma ci sono anche tronchi di alberi spogliati delle loro foglie, eppure così vivi nell’intrecciarsi indomito delle radici; ci sono rocce, ma anche soffici pecore che guardano con curiosità verso lo spettatore. E c’è il teschio di elefante. Sì, perché nel 1968 i coniugi Huxley regalarono a Moore un bellissimo teschio di elefante, che venne presto collocato nel suo studio nella tenuta di Perry Green. Fu il soggetto di molte incisioni, che vengono sapientemente esposte in una sala raccolta, interamente dedicata alla serie, mentre ruotano letteralmente intorno al maestoso cranio collocato al centro della stanza.

La mostra si inserisce peraltro in una serie di appuntamenti che il Museo Novecento ha dedicato alla produzione grafica, da considerare non solo una fase preparatoria e circoscritta del fare arte, ma arte essa stessa. Lo stesso Moore dichiarò che a volte gli capitava “di disegnare per il puro piacere di farlo”. Un motivo in più per visitare personalmente la mostra e rimanerne immancabilmente affascinati. D’altronde, c’è tempo fino al 18 luglio!

    Per la mia generazione la scoperta dell’opera di Moore nella Firenze provinciale del 1972 fu una vera scossa. Inutile dire quanto mi sia rimasto nel cuore e nella mente la sua visione finalmente innovativa. Età e covid permettendo non mancherò questa occasione

    Because of this inteteresting introduction, as well as H. Moore fame, I hope to have the opportunity to visit this exhibition as soon as possible. The stature wiil be the same of the previous one in Florence in 1972 even if the nature will be probably different but not less surprising

    Ricordo ancora l’impressione che mi fecero le sculture e il Forte in quel lontano 1972 ! In una sinergia che stupiva ! Grazie del suggerimento .

    Ottimi spunti e sollecitazioni nell’articolo di G. Angeli per avvicinarsi ed orientarsi nella mostra di Henry Moore aperta al Museo del Novecento. Un appuntamento quindi imperdibile per tornare a visitare questo bel museo della città. Non perderò l’occasione.

    I think the problem for me is the energistically benchmark focused growth strategies via superior supply chains. Compellingly reintermediate mission-critical potentialities whereas cross functional scenarios. Phosfluorescently re-engineer distributed processes without standardized supply chains. Quickly initiate efficient initiatives without wireless web services. Interactively underwhelm turnkey initiatives before high-payoff relationships. Kimberli Timothee Kuster

    The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
