Francesco Gennari's sculpture Mi sento quasi.../I Almost Feel... consists of an irregular ring of green Murano glass that has been left partially open. Placed on the floor, the hand-blown sculpture reflects the surrounding light. In this work, Gennari associates a certain formal minimalism with Italian artisan skill of the Murano glass traditional technique. Mi sento quasi… also creates an implicit and metaphorical self-portrait of the artist. For Gennari, self-portraits constitute a primary theme. While some refer to his physical being, others tend to reference his psychological state. Here, the fragility and instability of the glass, characterized by its irregularity, transfer into the exhibition space Gennari's own anxiety and feeling of insecurity.
