The desire to create a small virtual exhibition of unrealised pictorial projects stems from the need to analyse the pictorial medium within the contemporary artistic production. Five years ago we started the MoRE Museum project and in this time we have collected about one hundred unfinished works, all designed to be performances, installations, videos and sculptures. After years of work, my research as a curator at MoRE wants to address the art of painting, with the aim of understanding (through various acquisitions structured into several outputs) how the artistic discipline par excellence is "designed" - if I am allowed to use this term - and how, in some cases, it fails to become a reality.
In March 1991 the collector and publisher Francesco Conz, in collaboration with the Muzej Suvremene Umjetnosti - MSU of Zagreb, invited a few artists who had been part of Gorgona, the Croatian Croatian avant-garde group active between 1959 and 1961, to an artistic residency at the castle of Brunnenburg in Merano, Italy.
During their residency, the five artists created thirteen works of art as well as fifteen hand-made copies of each work. All of which were created on the same size of paper (30x42 cm), as used by the artists who participated in the residencies for La Livre edition.
However, contrary to their initial intentions, the group distanced itself from Ezra Pound because of the possible political implications conveyed by his figure. Neither La Livre nor any single issue that should have included the works created by the artists of Gorgona during their residency were ever completed and therefore published.
