Gaussiana is the title of a work by Francesca Ferreri located in Casa Morandi’s central room which lends its name to the exhibition as a whole. The work fits into a wider search for poetic insights for a sculptural approach in the intermingling between restoration and mathematical algorithms which places the problem of the incognito in the background.
The three elements of the sculpture, which come to life along a longitudinal axis, show clear signs of overflowing into the organic, its linearity and modular structure notwithstanding. The lightweight paper they support - punctuated by asemic writings, midway between mathematical expression and choreographic notations - implies the meaning of the work despite its flimsiness.
The Gaussian curve, widely used in natural and social sciences to represent population distribution or other variables graphically, tends, as is well-known, to the infinite. The work presented achieves a ‘zero point’ and it is its immediate restart which responds, in some sense, to the need for the infinite.
