Mario Schifano

"When I entered Mario’s home-studio, it was like walking into a forest where you had to move between various lianas and various obstacles, including Marco’s toys; Marco, still small, playing in the midst of tins of paint, brushes, sheets and drawings scattered on the ground. Mario’s studio was a laboratory, the very term 'study ' contradicting this chaos. A study refers to application, to silence, to concentration. Mario instead worked with the television on, as did Warhol. He loved to lose focus, flow, come out from the canvas, and from the image that he was creating. The study was more a laboratory and like the title of one exhibition that we did together, it was a 'human laboratory', too human, superhuman."
