This is the end.

An ending which resolves and bringsto a close an irriverent review which dawned whilst outside the light was dimming. An eding which brings forth an epilogue but not a result.
Above all an ending which remembers and comemoratores – after his death – the life of the tate Federico Cozzucoli, born in Messina in 1972, who always strove for an art that might reconcile his vocation for both religion and religiousness  with the current intolerance of terrorism, and whit the icons posing with thir hands togeter, their submissive faces pointing towards heaven. Icons accepted with unquestion faith, which have become indisputable depictions of belief, of faith and of the believing spirit.

Federico is remebreded by relatives and all those who knew him for his ability to subject orthodoxy to subtle and objective analysis,undermining that human self-referentiality which, despite continually questioning devotion itself through temptation of both body and mind, insists on feining constancy and coherence, in avoiding sin by sinning and in misinterpreting the pulsating, beating, gasping erection.

A man is missing from the world who believede that morality, imposed by preconceived ideas and states of mind, does nothing but tame human beings. A man, as both a firm beliver and an acute observer, who made prophesy into performance and confession into image, transferring and transporting religion to the langues and contexts of art.

Perhaps he went calmly, this agent of concrete action intended to reveal and place the similarities and differences between indoctrination of ritual and ritual itself – and thir evident,foreseen repercussion for a centuries-old tradition wihich respects and fails to reflect, limiting itself to tired repetition of custom.

Now that he has returned to the hause of the Lord, may Federico be accompanied by devotional gold, which so ofthen decoraded those sacred moments reproducedprecisely and with the talent of artsan by one who knew well how fashionable is self-denial which makes people pray to the Other (who is yet part of oneself) with the same acceptance they show in sorthing their rubbish.

"O thou hast decived me, and I was decived; thou art stronger than I, and hast prevalied" (Jeremiah 20:7) this was the admission of one who used analogy to hold down faith, making it both an unsual pupil and timely translator of concept.

Those who mourn you remind you that death lasts longer than life, Federico, and that in it, you will have the chance to seek both confirmation and new stimuli, evaluating once and for all your efforts made in examing preordained spontaneity.
