The work donated by the artist is part of a project entitled Gli Albi dell’Avventura (Illustrated books on the Adventure), a new phase in his return to photography, and which was on show in 2010 at the Galleria De’ Foscherari in Bologna and in 2011 at the Fondazione Marconi. This exhibition included unique copies of three books describing the project, hand-written and illustrated by the artist in which he tells the story of his incredible and moving artistic adventure in taking the original work “Concetto Spaziale” (“Spatial concept”) by Lucio Fontana to “heal” in the snow. The gallery owner Giorgio Marconi entrusted the artist with the original work by Fontana, giving Jori the possibility to carry out and narrate his project. In his books, Jori wrote: “the slashes by Fontana appeared to me what they had always been: A wound, the wound of modern art! And the snow – what else could the snow have represented other than the perfect healing treatment?”.
