“It can be defined as a sensational “misplacement” in strong hues, the one that Accardi present to us, after having resounded his own unconscious and his very own sensibility upon the world. His act of “misplacing” is immediate, something which is born of suffering and not arbitrarily designed, permeated with the fear of the present.On canvas He paints ostriches or other elements (He started with planes and ships) in environments to which they do not belong. He materializes the body of an impending menace: the threat of invasion, of loss, of xenophobia; summed up in the ever hovering but intangible Final Clash, either as a clash between the cultures or as the implosion of our very own civilization. The expression “misplaced” must be taken literally, it is not intended as an idiom.”
