Claudio Colotti at the MIDAC – Alfonso Caputo’s text

More than an order, an imposition, Claudio Colotti’s Mai+ (never more) is an invocation.

An invocation that is not direct, nor could it be, to the earth that has always trembled as natural movement of its being and becoming.

The earth trembles from before there were the human beings, with their houses, their temples and their schools.

Rather, this invocation is directed to human beings and, consequently, also to the creations and the actions of human beings.

It is much the astonishment, stronger than the fear.

How could all this happened?

How was it possible that what until yesterday was the pride, the consolation, the hallmark of a community is now a pile of rubble?

If are by Claudio the photographs that give body to this invocation/project/exhibition, by others are the words that give life to the photographs.

The aim to give voice to those who, for various reasons, was in silence become more and more visible page after page, photography after photograph.

There is no wrath in this Mai+ (never more). There is no wrath in the photographs. There is no wrath in words.

Claudio’s Mai+ (never more) is a soft invocation.

In the photographs and in the texts also the pain is composed.

There is so much dignity that even the most terrible loss can’t erase it.

Of course the loss is there and it could not be otherwise.

Every reference seems lost and in every lost reference it seems that everything is lost.

Art, documentation or testimony?

What definition fits best with this invocation/project/exposure?

But is not this spasmodic need to catalog and define the spy that shows a progressive inability to feel without thereby acquiring a better ability to understand?

Making houses, temples and schools with the ability to feel the heart and life of the ones that will live there.

To make concrete actions to help those in difficulty not just to appear, but simply because one feel their discomfort as if it were the own.

To support and to participate actively in building a community that values its history, its present, its future, its grandparents, its women, its men, its children, because one feels part of this community.

These are the actions that dignify the human being regardless of any other detail.

Claudio acted with the awareness of who put his individuality available to a bigger subject.

Artist for the project and the photographs, documentarist for the collected material, witness for not having kept silent.

Overcoming fear of reliving their fears and support the Mai+ (never more) project Claudio Colotti is a great opportunity to grow with the others.

The book and the exhibition are moments of encounter not to be missed.

An exciting experience to share and adopt the invocation Mai+ (never more).

The artistic season of this 2018 of the MIDAC Museum in Belforte del Chienti, opens with the first event of the year: Mai+(Never more) by Claudio Colotti (Italy). The exhibition, a project of the association Marchebestway, curated by Terra dell’Arte and with the patronage of the Municipality of Belforte del Chienti, the Marche Region and Legambiente Marche Onlus, is organized with the cooperation of Diaframma Zero and will be held in Palazzo Bonfranceschi, via Cavour, 14 – historical center of Belforte del Chienti, from Saturday, March 10th to Sunday, April 8th.

Claudio Colotti, born in 1980 in Macerata, lives Pollenza, and is a journalist since 2010. Already a chronicler on the weekly magazine Nuovo Chienti e Potenza, then collaborated with one of the first Web TV of the Marche Region: CentroItalia Tv. Later, for five years, he was redactor of Tv Centro Marche, the main regional private broadcaster.

Always linked to photography as a testimony, he has flanked the journalistic activity to that of social photographer and street photographer, documenting the thousand contradictions that affect Italian cities in the time of the crisis.

“MAI+ The earthquake in central Italy between faces and ruins” published by MarcheBestWay it’s his first publication.
