Interlude Italiana

5月 15, 2013  -   7月 15, 2013

Polarities within art, society and the individual bring about moments of breath-taking transience. The artists of "Interlude Italiana" each confront the dynamics of their own paradigm of extremes; be it beauty versus decay, birth versus destruction, or abundance versus lack. The works embody the celebration of beauty with the analysis of decay, where negative and positive in opposition become manifest by defining each other.

The works of Dario Puggioni reflect on the given antinomies of human bodies, by showing the organic versus creative processes of annihilation. The mixed media portraits by Giuseppe Piovesan as well, present beauty resulting from darkness, elegance existing through obscurity. The work of Fillipo Ioco contrasts this fascination again through the use of both natural and fabricated visual beauty within frames and extending out - onto the human body itself. The sculptural work by Alessandro Lupi as well presents opposition in representing the body itself as object of experiential embodied perception. The evanescent landscapes of Sergio Tarantino utilize a digital medium to transform the organic exterior out of organic details, whilst examining the dynamic aesthetics of the outside from within. The gridded commodity paintings by Stefano Bosis, depicting guns and food, pointedly demonstrate a frozen lack, spurred by abundance.

Together the works of "Interlude Italiana" are fueled by the inclination to find pause between extremes.
