THE SUSPECT
edited by Rebecca Russo

Friday 5 April at 6.00 pm at the Irpino Museum – Bourbon Prison Monumental Complex, inaugurates Rebecca Russo’s ”Suspect”
The Collective Exhibition, produced by the Videoinsight® Foundation in collaboration with Ri.Genera Impresa Sociale, unfolds along a rich and intense exhibition path involving 70 works by international artists: paintings, installations, photographs and videos. The mission of the Videoinsight® Foundation is the promotion of psychophysical well-being through Contemporary Art.

The “The Suspect” exhibition is aimed at the prevention of pathological narcissism, toxic relationships, emotional manipulation, psychological abuse and femicide.
The exhibition itinerary is configured as a profound reflection on couple relationships and their illnesses and neuroses in our era.
The title draws inspiration from the film “Suspicion” by Alfred Hitchcock (1941), starring Joan Fontaine and Cary Grant, in which a disturbing sentimental story is masterfully narrated. Lina (Joan Fontaine) suspects that Johnnie, the brilliant but penniless man she married (Cary Grant), is plotting to kill her. But is it really like that? Is this a paranoid fantasy of the protagonist or is Lina really dealing with a dangerous perverse narcissist?
That an Art Exhibition is inspired by a Hitchcock film is no coincidence, given that Hitchcock’s cinema is characterized by an almost absence of dialogue, in favor of images, which are much more capable of “speaking”.
”Those who suspect wake up. Those who suspect are saved. Those who suspect change the ending.”
The exhibition will feature works by: Maria Josè Arjona, Cristian Avram, Raffaella Baldassarre, Irene Balia, Marcela Barceló, Janet Biggs, Thomas Braida, Savina Capecci, Gianluca Capozzi, Keren Cytter, Saghar Daeiri, Nezaket Ekici, Angelo Farina, Kate Gilmore , Silvio Giordano, Niklas Goldbach, Goldiechiari, Ragnar Kjartansson, Selena Leardini, Iva Lulashi, Ursula Mayer, Marcello Maloberti, Elisabetta Mariuzzo, Masbedo, Marzia Miglior, Ottonella Mocellin – Nicola Pellegrini, Jesse Mockrin, Eugenia Mussa, Beatrice Pediconi, Nunzio Paci, Margaréta Petrzalovà, Eleonora Picariello, Cheryl Pope, Julika Rudelius, Giuliano Sale, Marta Scavone, Mario Scetta, Marinella Senatore, Milena Sgambato, Sebastiano Sofia, Melati Suryodarmo, Ian Tweedy, Sofie Tobiásová, Roberta Toscano, Eulalia Valldosera, Ulla Von Brandenburg, Sophie Whettnall.
