Translated Extracts

by Nicole Laffont

In Enrico Magnani the fighting is truly interior. He refers to Leo Steinberg: “Art comes always from discomfort and its main function is to convey this discomfort to lay audience in a state of genuine existential embarrassment”. Enrico Magnani’s works are shocking, questioning, and they create discomfort, but they reflect an authentic artistic destiny. This young Italian artist does not try to seduce, but to assert his personal vision of the human finitude. This is the sign of a future in the world of art.
