“Void of joined hands” sculpture of  Elena Mutinelli sculptress - VII International Symposium of  Sculpture - Friuli Venezia Giulia; Italy 2004

 

<In the never-ending involvement of the body hands are the protagonists, sustaining the evocation, once again, of the mystery of a continuous evolutionary search.

Strong hands that accompany the bodies and take care of them.

Hands thrust towards change, to reinvention o themselves in the knowledge that the transformation will be such until the end of time…And in the silence of an erotic tension in void…Thoughts take shape.>

 

Giorgio Segato “Hands on the body "  Villa Rufolo, Ravello- Salerno; the exhibition personal 1998

 

<The sculptress Elena Mutinelli has a special, urgent need to rediscover ‘hands’ that are able to feel again and give back the rights of the body, so as to discover the body- The hands assume plastic dimensions of notable evidence, not only urning the consolidation of the direct sensation and the contact with the shape, the design, the temperature, the reactivity of the body, but also with the re-emerging of the memory of the sensitive knowledge, going through the body, of relationships, confidence with the structure and the physical and psychical space. In my opinion, Elena Mutinelli is interested in this rediscovery and this affirmation of the central character of the body and sensibility of the existential experience, as well as a necessary return of the esthetical capacity (in the very elementary meaning of sensibiity) of the person , as well as recomposing a reason for the art and the skill of the person, as well as recomposing a reason for the art and the skill of the art that rejects the illusoriness, that is more and more invaded by the virtual imput (images, knowledge, culture, behaviour) and reacts coldly, with povery and conceptually against the impotence of the poetic world> .
