The Ekilibrio Foundation Collection
The collection begins in the early ninenties, with the first important purchases of the works of Achille Perilli and Antonio Sanfilippo of the Roman Forma 1 school. Soon, however, a decisive change of course toward geometrical rigor, a choice that would turn out to be more befitting for the Foundation, and therefore, more enduring.
A very meaningful beginning that revealed the preferences and the direction who intended to take the Foundation: that of formal rigor, the economy of expressive means, and aesthetic purity. Essentially, prefers forms that overcome the informal, and which in the absence of a form or a project, resist a rigorous internal logic and a certain structural “nakedness”.
As with the pieces of a puzzle, the works in the collection become fragments of a whole, which, when put together, they make the collection a dynamic entity that always transforms and develops.
What we can say for sure is that every art collection is born of a powerful stimulus that does not run out. The soul manifests in the search for dialogue between the individual and the object and is fueled by a need that goes beyond simple logic.
