PAUL KLEE E L’ITALIA
BY FEDERICO LARDERA
FOR GALLERIA NAZIONALE D’ARTE MODERNA
The Paul Klee and Italy exhibition at the GAM in Rome analyzed the influence of Italian culture and landscapes on the work of the Swiss artist, from the beginning of the Bauhaus period to the last years of solitary work in Bern, and displaying approximately one hundred works by Klee and other artists, both Italians and others (including: Kandinsky, Moholy Nagy, Max Bill Albers, Licini, Soldiers, Perilli and Novelli). The exhibition has been set up as a critical act, extending, in addition to the general preparation, to cover the graphics and the design of spaces and didactic elements. Thanks to a minute colour design, achieved through the calibration of the dominant colours, the various exhibition halls have taken on their own character, in line with Klee’s poetry. The perceptual effect was based on the harmonic de-saturation of a linear succession of colours (red, purple, blue, green and yellow), summarized by a white background. A special display has been added to these elements, designed to represent Klee’s ability to demonstrate depth and spatial complexity with a simple show or dimming of seemingly two-dimensional colours. The installation, created at the centre of the educational section, saw the creation of a "real" Italian village, taken from some sketches by Klee collected in Teoria della forma e della figurazione.
