Pavart contemporary art gallery has opened the first art exhibition of 2021 with a provocative solo "We are all fried!" by Salvatore Cammilleri. A pop interpretation of the sad reality we are experiencing. The egg, which represents life, breaks, it fries and becomes a symbol of death.

The curator of the exhibition, Velia Littera, as well as director of Pavart, does not give up and continues to promote art convinced that through it, important concepts can be expressed with the aim to shake the viewer. The artist Cammilleri, through his symbolisms, expresses a strictly existentialist philosophical vision.

With the spheres, he explores the act of birth and creation through the energy of elements that enter into symbiosis. With wings, he explores the path of life highlighting, the act of "not flying” that is the impossibility of the human being to express a real will of powerness. With the symbol of the egg, he explores human transience by inverting the meaning of an icon, which represents life.

The fried egg is a metaphor for human transience, a condition that is thus faced with irony, which also emerges through the titles of the works, which are an integral part of it. In this way, Salvatore Cammilleri's art rises to a definite conceptual pop, out of the canonical schemes of the same. The eggs emerge from a black background in order to exclude one of the principles dear to pop art itself, the colour. The artist, anyhow, remains faithful to a pop style since nothing is more pop(olar) than a fried egg in both form and concept.

Salvatore Cammilleri's art is characterized by his being multifaceted; this means that his research is characterized by a variety of languages, symbolism, mixed media, and manipulation of many materials. He expresses himself through all forms of contemporary art, such as painting, sculpture, photography, digital art, installations, performances, video and audio art and by a mixture of them. Each of these languages, in turn, are treated with different techniques. For example, the sculptural works ranges from assembly to plastic modelling, from 3D sculpture to bas-relief, and are made with various materials such as wood, plastic, Plexiglas, fabrics, metals, etc.
