Mimesi is a series of full-scale painted installations where De Marco sets canvas and wall paintings in relation to one another using the features of the exhibition space. The project can be understood as a laboratory on the idea of representation, tackling the problem of copy and model.
The only motifs represented are empty screens, a proliferation of linear defined frames referring to the overlapping windows of a computer, giving the illusion of an infinite space. The rhythm and geometry of these landscapes echo the translation of physical objects into numerical sequences.
Flavio de Marco collaborated with artists such as the theater director Pietro Babina and the visual artists Luca Pancrazzi and Giulio Paolini, using their works as a different parameter from which to explore the topic of classic mimesis.
