Anachronism

Anachronism (from the Greek. Ana – back and hronos – time), another name – hyper-Mannerism – one of the directions of postmodernism, offering an author’s interpretation of the art of the past. Anachronism arose in the late 1970s. in Italy, later in France. Masters of Anachronism: Carlo Maria Mariani, Omar Galliani, Luigi Ontani, Stefano di Stacio, Ubaldo Bartolini, Antonio Abbate, Jean Garuy.

As a result of the denial of modernism (i.e., the avant-garde trend in art), postmodernism proclaimed its goal to return to the old, pre-modern forms, historical traditions and styles of the centuries-old culture. In search of new forms, postmodern artists mix artistic styles and languages ​​of different eras and cultures, creating on this basis an individual mythology correlated with the personal experience of the author. Often such borrowings are witty when the artist, appealing to a variety of picturesque quotes and references, comes up with a kind of hypothetical culture and, according to the given rules, “creates” its images.

Anachronism arose in the late 1970s. in Italy, later in France. Her most important spiritual source was the work of Giorgio De Chirico, who turned in the 1920s. after the “metaphysical period” to classical art.

Anachronists, or “cultural artists”, as they call themselves, are inspired by the works of Renaissance, mannerist and baroque masters, whom they paraphrase, parody, trying to fit the classical tradition into the mosaic context of postmodern culture. In essence, hyper-Mannerists are stylists who have turned to a critical analysis of the history of art from the standpoint of conceptualism.

The idea, concept, art quote is the basis of the artist’s dialogue with the past, which results in individual historical worlds and personal styles, creations resembling museum and archaeological originals, in which the images of the past and present are fancifully intertwined.

Masters of Anachronism – Carlo Maria Mariani, Omar Galliani, Luigi Ontani, Stefano di Stacio, Ubaldo Bartolini, Antonio Abbate, Jean Garuy.
