Federica Marangoni, fifty years after her debut in the world of art, succinctly entitles the solo exhibition designed for the c | e contemporary Gallery in Milan, ENIGMA. The mythical term derives from the Greek αἴνιγμα which, in turn, leads back to the verb αἰνίσσομαι, which means to speak in an obscure way by resorting to insoluble, sibylline questions, facing the threshold of a high-risk response. The answer, for the viewer, is inherent in the artist’s work itself, in its devices of opacity or transparency, of darkness or light, of consumption in the wreck or of restitution in memory, in words, in silence. This is a strong project of the ENIGMA exhibition, which is constructively confronted with the fateful Chinese curse “may you live in interesting times” – which the 58th Venice Biennale, by the English curator Ralph Rugoff, titled. Particularly significant reference today, in advanced times of pandemic, in which that title sounds like a prophetic premonition.
