Unfinished Museum


Luigi Camarilla

Often while I am working what I am doing generates another work or project and for this reason it remains unfinished. Each work fertilizes others.   If I tell you Unfinished what is the first thing that comes to your mind? I immediately slip into the personal, because I have a tendency to start things, […]

If I tell you the word “unfinished” what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? It is a bit of a leitmotiv of my life, this spark that starts a light and then goes out like an unlit fire. If I tell you the word “unfinished” what’s the first thing that comes to your […]

The unfinished could be white because it offers you the opportunity to build again and even radically change what already exists; a kind of new energy, a power that can be used, it starts in one way but can be concluded in a million different ways.

Some ideas are just tiny seeds, minuscule and sensitive, others half-asleep somewhere under the snow, others as immense as […]

Life is a continuous discovery of something, at every age, in every moment of the day, I would not want for everything to be completed. I am reminded of a parallelism with theater, I have always loved shows in which I did not see everything on the stage, I was more interested in what I […]

Who said that only accomplished things are “crowned” with success? We all write a story made up of small and big defeats, trials, abandoned plans and unfinished works.A trivial event from the past haunted an elderly poet-writer.

The force of weakness

The pleasure of silence mentioned by Susan Sontag in her essay “Aesthetics of silence” has changed the concept of Unfinished. Unfinished becomes the emblem of something that does not exist.
