"I believe that things do not exist. A glass, a man, a hen, for example, is not really a glass, a man, a hen. In order to really exist, things would have to be eternal, immortal; only in this way would they be not merely the verification of certain possibilities, but truly things."  Thus begins the famous "Letter on Immortality" by the legendary Italian artist Gino De Dominicis (1947-1998).  He was one of the most fascinating artists of the Italian post-war period and his work is surrounded by a mysterious, almost mythical aura, not least on account of his refusal to document his work photographically.  He was forever concerned with the immanence of reality, the absoluteness of the event, the dissolution of man and things in time and space – and with beauty.  We are delighted at this opportunity to show some of the rarely seen works of Gino De Dominicis in our Munich gallery.
