Shown in Compétition #5.
A man sitting in a bar munches pistachio nuts to kill time.
Another man browses through a magazine, looking for interesting topics and keeping up to date with the world.
The barman follows his routine, not caring about his customers.
Text from the selection committee
In a bar where time stands still, three men are one with the void and revel in the passage of time, one pistachio after the other… The spectator is gradually sent back to his own presence. Luca Sorgato’s Pistacchi takes the form of a triptych with a very strong pictorial composition. The poetry of Attilio Lolini comes to give life to these paintings.
