Maria Morganti, Jean-Luc Nancy
The colour happens, it is not provoked
Le couleur arrive, elle ne se provoque pas | Il colore succede, non si provoca
In this artist’s book, Maria Morganti describes the process of her painting from the bowl to the archive, through images and texts, as something bodily and almost physiological, positioning herself not as creator, but as “colour pourer”. The philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy rhythmically reacts to the images, evoking words that lead to a physical experience of colour as substance in the world.
