Sergio Gioberto (1952, Turin) and Marilena Noro (1961, Turin). They live and work in Turin.
The name Gioberto Noro came from the union of Sergio Gioberto and Marilena Noro’s surnames, a couple in life and in art.
Full and empty, shadow and light, chaos and order are crucial categories in Gioberto Noro’s artistic language. And it could not be otherwise, since the artistic duo Gioberto Noro is urged by a cognitive drive in the realization of the work of art, displays an intent to know reality by intellectually overcoming the material shortcomings of photography. In this respect, the camera is no longer a mere technical device, but a means to investigate the world and, thus, the Self: this is where the “separated ego” reconnects with a cosmic whole, which becomes detectable in the photographed image. Gioberto Noro’s poetic investigation is based on the examination of the structure of matter and, more specifically, the structure of light.
Reason and feeling, rationality and visionary nature coexist and are completed in a photographic series of Renaissance composure. Fullness and emptiness, shadow and light, chaos and order are essential categories in the artistic realm investigated by Gioberto Noro.
