DOOR TO THE AFTERLIFE Beyond Spatialism
On Saturday 28 July 2018, the artist ‘cut’ and opened the Door to the Afterlife, bringing together the two dimensions for the first time ever in an artwork, and thereby going beyond the historic concept of Spatialism.
The occasion also provided a valued opportunity to present the Aldilà Art Movement, which brings together outstanding scholars and personalities from the international scientific and humanistic world, and the artist’s Manifesto-Codice Aldilà.
During the performance, by making a considered and codified cut in the canvas, Gabriele Maquignaz opened the Door to the Afterlife, with his special cutter made from gold, steel, aluminium and ceramic, a genuine Aldilà key-code, linking forever the two dimensions in art.
Art lovers and collectors regarded the event as a landmark event.
They were able to witness the historic moment of the birth of a new art that establishes a link between the earthly and the otherworldly dimensions, transcending the invisible, but tangible, boundaries between matter and spirit.
