The Association Mechanics of Wonder presents the third exhibition stage of "A Middle Generation" - a multi-year project dedicated to contemporary Brescian art - with the exhibition "Spellbound" dedicated to Brescian artists Maurizio Donzelli (1958) e Paola Pezzi (1963). A double solo exhibition with two curators, the Turin-based Alberto Fiz for Donzelli and the Roman Marco Tonelli for Pieces, articulated in the spaces of Palazzo Martinengo Cesaresco in Brescia. With the title of the exhibition "Spellbound", which means "enchanted," "bewitched," a term used by Alfred Hitchcock in the 1945 film of the same name, is meant to allude both to that enchantment that the relative has toward the work and to the encounter between two artists who have tried to be mutually enchanted by their respective visual investigations. A sequence of works that are also embedded and mirrored by merging into the path in the exhibition, calling the audience to an intense visual immersion and seducing their gaze.
