One sixtieth. A fraction of a second. The idea penetrates within such a little lapse of time. The idea strength. Seeing a film backwards, from the end to the beginning; this is the idea of the exhibition at the MAXXI Museum. Starting from the completed work and showing all the preceding phases in reverse order: the first ideas consisting of rapid notes scribbled on any kind of support, the many studio models produced at almost the same speed of thinking, the experimentation of different techniques and diverse materials, from the continual modifications to the point of synthesis, up to when the idea materializes. This is what we want to show, the passage of an idea that materializes in a sixtieth of a second. The exhibition retraces altogether the works carried out by Studio Fuksas, starting from the latest designs and going backwards up to the early projects. Along the exhibition itinerary, visitors can grasp the creative process pervading every single work, from conception to realization. Models, sketches, paintings, photographs and videos show the various stages through which the plans develop.
