Neither Nor: The Challenge to the Labyrinth is the project curated by Milovan Farronato which includes both never-before-seen and historical works of three major Italian artists: Enrico David (Ancona, 1966), Chiara Fumai (Rome, 1978 – Bari, 2017), and Liliana Moro (Milan, 1961). Neither Nor is inspired by La sfida al labirinto (The Challenge to the Labyrinth), a famous essay written by Italo Calvino in 1962, in which the author suggests the idea of a cultural work that can describe the complexity of a world that has lost all its references. Starting from the title itself, which in Italian uses the rhetorical device of the anastrophe, thus changing the normal word order, Neither Nor makes use of the structure of the labyrinth to stage an exhibition route with neither a beginning nor an end and open to parallel interpretations. The works on display and the installation itself converse and overlap to form a tangle of lines, forms, and tendencies reflecting the impossibility of reducing knowledge to a series of predictable trajectories.
