Enrico Roberto Morelli was born in 1961 in Cairo Montenotte, he studied at the high school Calasanzio and the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Pisa, more than twenty years is present in the international art world.
The work of Enrico Roberto Morelli, even if it does not belong to the current of Conceptual Art in the strict sense, it remains for the aspects of development related to it.
He has always given his attention to the relationship between the real and the imaginary, trying to strike up a relationship of coexistence and respect.
In the research is clear the attention to want to present images not as a representation, but as a preliminary sketch of a thought, where space is available and free, in a sort of metaphor.
With the deepening of critical rationalism by Antonio Banfi and the approach to the concepts expressed by Umberto Eco in his essay Opera Aperta, in which sets out the principles according to which the art, even visual, does not close in a sort of selfreferential lyrical-expressive expression but it allows to weave a dialogue with all its possible connections that kicks off the series of works called "Pre-text 2.0" presented in various national and international exhibitions. It's a series of acrylics on boards framed in which Morelli focuses the expressive aspect on the space, which becomes physical, between the images leaving the field to the perceptual-subjective componentin a conscious intentional inexistence.
The relational aesthetics that is based on the theory of Nicolas Bourriaud for a universe of human interrelationships gives new life to research and lays the foundations of the birth of the project QRt.
The QRt were exposed for the first time in March 2013 at the Priamar fortress of Savona in a collective exhibition.
The QRt based their aesthetic component in the magic of primitive graffiti carved into African limestone looking warm, Mediterranean, combining them in a rich and engaging dialogue.
The focus is on higt contrasts topics where social rights are suffocated, where are hidden the principles of freedom of fairness, distancing himself from the current "enchanted disenchantment". This takes place in a sort of temporal fusion thanks to the QR code's interactivity, which opens a collective dialogue which gains social and political characters.As Sebastian Matta said "the function of the artist in our society is to be this character, the dazzling insulted, as the child of Andersen's tale, the only one to say that "the Emperor has nothing at all on ".
