Graffiare il presente (scratching the surface) is based on the idea of some artworks being "tools for holding this reality at bay, or for acting in it, in opposition to the reassuring but sterile idea of suggesting to the viewer a place that is set apart and sheltered from the contamination of the world" (Daniele Capra, one of the curators of the exhibition.)
We've been asked by Daniele and his co-curator Giuseppe Frangi to design a catalogue that would translate this idea in a physical object: We came up with the imagery of Gratta e vinci (scratch and win), lottery tickets which by scratching the varnish reveal a win. Applied on our project, the reader could "win" awareness of the artists and artworks by scratching the cover surface.
