LIGHTQUAKE 2017
Black Light Art and Light Art Exhibition

Rocca Albornoziana – National Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto
6 December 2017 – 25 February 2018
Dukes’ Palace – Gubbio
8 December 2017 – 25 February 2018

When Christmas will turn its lights on, those in Spoleto and Gubbio won’t be just Christmas lightings, but true works of art by the artists involved in the artistic project Lightquake 2017, who will give life to the first Light Art and Black Light Art exhibitions in Umbria, featuring artists who have always been manipulating light.

The artistic project Lightquake was started to support the recovery of the cultural heritage damaged by the 2016 earthquake in Central Italy. A double exhibition will involve the cities of Spoleto and Gubbio, starting in December 2017. From 6 December to 25 February 2018, the exhibition Black Light Art will take place in the inner  and outer spaces at the Rocca Albornoziana – Museo Nazionale del Ducato di Spoleto. From 7 December to 25 February 2018, the Dukes’ Palace in Gubbio will be enlivened by Light Art, through works by Federica Marangoni, Saverio Mercati and Stefano Frascarelli.

During the exhibition, a luminous installation by Umbrian artist Carlo Dell’Amico will be inaugurated at the Tempietto del Clitunno, thus symbolically joining two museums and a monument through light.

The Spoleto core of Black Light Art is composed of: Leonilde Carabba, Claudio Sek De Luca, Ria Lussi, Mario Agrifoglio, Alessio Ancillai, Giulio De Mitri, Nicola Evangelisti, Maria Cristina Fioretti, Yari Miele, ancora un’opera di Federica Marangoni, Sebastiano Romano, Ugo Piccioni, Nino Alfieri. This exhibition has already been organised in Milan and Como, and aims at exploring the artistic values of black light, proposing works by more than 10 artists who experiment with light. Mario Agrifoglio, an artist who made Black Light the core of his artistic experimentation, is the outstanding figure here. Black Light as expressive tool, that can involve the spectator in a sensorial experience where reality, far from appearing in its usual shape, is dressed with unusual, surprising colours and shapes. Light will colour the dark, to bring back the light of life across the earthquaked lands.

The artistic curatorship is held by Gisella Gellini and Claudia Bottini, the exhibition is supported by Polo museale dell’Umbria, Regione Umbria, Cities of Gubbio and Spoleto, in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano and Fondazione Mario Agrifoglio, with the contribution of Associazione Rocca Albornoziana. Società Sistema Museo is entrusted with its production.

THE PAINTING GAME
PAOLA MASINO’S COLLECTION OF PAINTED PLAYING CARDS
7 December/2 April – MAG Palazzo Bufalini, Piazza Duomo – by MetaMorfosi Art Gallery Cultural Association
Opening:  Thursday December 7 h. 12.00

The exhibition will bring to Palazzo Bufalini an extraordinary collection of painted cards coming from the Museum of Rome in Palazzo Braschi.

Conceived by Paola Masino, an unconventional writer and intellectual, the collection was created with the intention of considering playing cards as a work of art, reinvented according to the creativity of her many artistic friends. Carried out with patience and tenacity for four decades, Paola Masino’s project produces a very original bouquet of French, Neapolitan and tarot playing cards, created by the best interpreters of twentieth century art.

From Carla Accardi to Alberto Burri and Consagra; from Carlo Carrà to Campigli and Capogrossi, passing through Cagli, Carlo Levi, Renato Guttuso, Prampolini, Fausto Pirandello, Giosetta Fioroni, Antonietta Raphael Mafai, Pietro Dorazio, Mario Sironi – just to name a few – many important artists took up her invitation, creating these small works of art.

The exhibition The Painting Game. Paola Masino’s collection of painted playing cards, curated by Marinella Mascia Galateria and Patrizia Masini, is organized by MetaMorfosi, thanks to the precious collaboration with Roma Capitale, Department of Cultural Growth – Capitoline Superintendence for Cultural Heritage with the Archive of the twentieth century of Sapienza University of Rome and under the patronage of the Municipality of Spoleto and the City of Rome.

Collicola onthewall presents SCHERMI URBANI (Urban Screens) @ Vie del centro storico

from Saturday 16 December
Opening h 14.30 – Downtown Spoleto

Collicola onthewall presents

SCHERMI URBANI
Curated by Gianluca Marziani

SCHERMI URBANI is a Christmas event of public art, strongly wished for by the City administration which entrusted director of Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts Gianluca Marziani with its artistic curatorship.

The event involves some twenty sites in downtown Spoleto, including two former newsstands (Piazza Collicola, Piazza della Libertà), Palazzetto Ancaiani’s six displays (Piazza della Libertà) and some further fifteen dispays scattered across the city centre (Corso Mazzini, Via del Mercato, Via Salara Vecchia, via Minervio): the locations will be coated with great images of contemporary art, created by five artists who already collaborate with Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts.

“After last summer’s performance by street artist Ob Queberry in Piazza del Mercato – said Head of Culture and Tourism Camilla Laureti and Head of Town Planning Antonio Cappelletti – for the Christmas period we wanted the displays of closed shops to become the base for artistic interventions. It is a way to have the city centre live again and to try and envision a different future for this part of the city. We thank the shop owners who accepted to be featured, director Gianluca Marziani and the artists who joined in.”

EXCERPTA – Enrico Corte and Andrea Nurcis @ Palazzo Collicola
Dec 16 2017 – Mar 18 2018 all-day

It is the very first time that both the Piano Nobile and the Exhibitions’ Floor at Palazzo Collicola are used together for a single exhibitions that intertwines languages, themes, concepts and narrative forms.

The exhibition features two anthological, individual routes and a good number of works signed together, a usual exhibition pattern of the two artists.

2017/2018 Prose Season
27 October 2017 – 8 March 2018

Ottavia Piccolo, Massimo Dapporto, Monica Guerritore, Francesca Reggiani, Asia Argento, Filippo Dini, David Coco, Liv Ferracchiati are but some of the protagonists of the Spoleto 2017-2018 Prose Season that includes 7 plays, six at the Teatro Nuovo and one at the Caio Melisso.

The start is on Friday 27 October at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo “Menotti” with Occident Express (Haifa è nata per star ferma). Written by Stefano Massini, it features Ottavia Piccolo and the Orchestra Multietnica di Arezzo. In 2015 an old woman from Mosul flees with her 4-yo granddaughter, covering 5.000 Km from Iraq to the Baltic Sea, across the so-called Balcan Route. This is her story.

Friday 24 November at 21, at the Teatro Nuovo, it’s the turn of Mariti e Mogli, adapted and directed by Monica Guerritore who is also in the cast along with Francesca Reggiani. The play is freely adapted from Woody Allen’s much praised film.

Saturday 9 December at 21, again at the Teatro Nuovo, Massimo Dapporto is the protagonist of Un borghese piccolo piccolo, extraordinary novel by Vincenzo Cerami who inspired Monicelli’s cinema masterpiece, a tragic comedy that offers hilarious moments. Adaptation and direction by Fabrizio Coniglio.

Monday 8 and Tuesday 9 January at 21 and Wednesday 10 January at 18 at the Teatro Caio Melisso – spazio Carla Fendi, it is the time of Todi is a small town in the center of Italy, written and directed by Liv Ferracchiati. What is life like in an Italian small town? Michele, Stella, Elisa and Caroline are four guys from Todi. A fifth character, a documentarist, connects fiction to reality observing and noting the features of the city and its inhabitants. What is life like in a place where everybody knows everyone? What should you rather avoid doing in Todi? These are but some of the questions that were actually asked to more than a hundred people in Todi, that the play aims at giving back through a collage that supports the story of the four protagonists.

Saturday 20 January at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the Györ Ballet Company (one of the oldest, most praised European contemporary dance companies) will stage two masterpieces, Maurice Ravel’s  Bolero and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.

Friday 9 February at 21, Teatro Nuovo, Il Giuramento by Claudio Fava, directed by Ninni Bruschetta and featuring David Coco. Heads, you can count them or cut them. The fascist regime didn’t choose one. It counted 1238 and cut twelve, casual heroes of those who only have left an extreme resource of dignity, that of refusal. This happened on 13 November 1931. The theatre play tells the story of one of them.

Thursday 8 March at 21 at the Teatro Nuovo, the closing play will be Rosalind Franklin. Il segreto della vita by Anna Ziegler, directed by Filippo Dini, featuring Asia Argento, Filippo Dini. The Great History, the discovery of DNA, and the extraordinary tale of scientist Rosalind Franklin’s last years, facing one of the most important, debated discoveries in the history of scientific research.

Entrance fee: € 10.00

Mosè Chiavoni (clarinet/soprano saxophone) and Luciano Biondini (accordeon), both Umbrian, present “Rosso”, a captivating journey through Klezmer music with original pieces characterized by a Central European sound. A musical idea, both distant from and close to them, and shared for a long time, which allows them to masterfully interact in a chamber music that resonates with improvisation as well as with echoes of different geographical origins. The duo plays with sound volumes and speed, without ever losing sight of music’s singability and rhythmic drive.

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci"

<!--:it-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--><!--:en-->LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 <!--:--> @ Biblioteca Comunale "G. Carducci" | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

LECTURAE DANTIS 2017 
From 6 October to 21 December at the Public Library, Palazzo Mauri

After the success of the last years, the integral reading of Dante’s Divine Comedy resumes from October 6 to December 21, each Friday afternoon at 17 by the Public library in Palazzo Mauri; this leg includes the reading of 11 cantos from the Paradise, from the XIIth to the XXIInd.

Readings will be by actor Claudio Trionfi, with comments by academics co-ordinated by professor Rodney John Lokaj.

During the event, (October through December) some editions of the Divine Comedy owned by the Public Library will be on display, including the 1484 Venetian incunabulus commented by Cristoforo Landino (1424 – 1498).

Nine cycles of reading have already taken place, that featured the first two canticas, and Hell’s first 11 cantos. The experience shows the modern interest in Dante and his work.

Lectura Dantis is a specific form of divulgation à haute voix, historically well defined and codified, which originated in the XIVth century thanks to Giovanni Boccaccio, and evolved through the ages, yet respecting the traditional interconnection between verse reading and exegetical comment.

SUPERUTOPIAS – Toyscapes by Anna la Touche Riciputo and (H)eart(H)quake by Coletivo Barragem – Exhibition and videoperformance @ Casa dell’Architettura Spoleto – Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive Spoleto

Spoleto House of Architecture– Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts 
28 April 2018, h 17 – 15 July 2018
Fridays-Saturdays-Sundays 10.30-13.00 / 15.30-19.00
Opening: 28 April at 17.00

The Spoleto House of Architecture presents the exhibition LE SUPERUTOPIE toyscapes at Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts, featuring works by Anna Riciputo and the video performance (H)EART((H)QUAKE by Coletivo Barragem (Nivaldo Godoy and Panais Bouki).

Le Superutopie by Anna la Touche Riciputo are a synthesis of a way of looking at the built space through the Toyscapes, toy-landscapes that take shape of landscapes-borders of the utopian subconscious composed by fragments of architecture, art and costumes.

Astounding pop scenarios that are the result of a precise, formal analysis: the architect gathers the richness of the urban landscape, selects the city’s icons, pivots of history, and recomposes them in a contemporary stratigraphy.
The stratigrapy thus assumes the double meaning of a replacement of the work in a new landscape, and of direct, momentous fusion where parts of contemporary architecture blend with fragments of historical architectures.
The video performance (H)EART((H)quake by Coletivo Barragem (Nivaldo Godoy and Panais Bouki), picks up Anna Riciputo’s pop heritage and mixes the authors’ point of view on Spoleto in video sequences, recomposing the historical signs of the city mixed with Festival-Of-Two-World’s icons, all-the -while letting the post-earthquake temporary facilities surface.

The exhibition will be introduced with the catalogue published by ADD-art Edizioni, featuring collaborations bycoordinator of Casa dell’Architettura, architect Fabio Fabiani, director of Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive Spoleto, Gianluca Marziani, Addart curator Alessia Vergari, journalist Andrea Tomasini and the very illustrious architect Adolfo Natalini.

Teatro Ridens theatre play produced by Centro di Produzione teatrale dell’Umbria Fontemaggiore
By and with Giorgio Donati
dramatization Giorgio testa
direction Giorgio Donati and Jacob Olesen

Conceived as a seminar, the play is a quick course on comedy, complete with a final examination for the audience, to illustrate the scientific nature and power of this ancient theatre form. Created to explain the essential aspects of comedy in an innovative way, the play utilizes interactive theatre techniques to disclose rules, tricks and secrets, learning for instance how to create the illusion of an escalator or of a tapis-roulant, or how to painlessly slap someone. In the end, past the exams, the audience will be more aware of the mechanism that rule gags and sketches, and will discover the possibility of creating an unimaginable poetic world starting from simple daily situations. Dazed yet unchained professors Giorgio Donati and Jacob Olesen, the Umbrian and the Dane, exploit the pedagogy og great Parisian maestro Jacques Lecoq, and their 30-year theatre experience.

VIVI LA VIA – Urban trekking with tourist guide in the footsteps of St. Francis @ Spoleto - Ritrovo in Piazza Duomo

<!--:it-->VIVI LA VIA - Trekking urbano con guida turistica sui luoghi di San Francesco<!--:--><!--:en-->VIVI LA VIA  - Urban trekking with tourist guide in the footsteps of St. Francis<!--:--> @ Spoleto - Ritrovo in Piazza Duomo | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The Municipality of Spoleto, in collaboration with Consorzio Francesco’s Ways, join the event VIVI LA VIA, which will take place along the Via di Francesco / St. Francis Way on 25, 26 and 27 May.

The event aims at giving value to the culture of walking and pilgrimage, with due regard for those who choose to embark on the journey, in harmony with the environment and the territory, and thanks to the active involvement of associations and local communities who live along the way.

The historical link between St. Francis and Spoleto is well known: “Nihil jucundius vidi valle mea spoletana” is the phrase traditionally attributed to the Saint, who deeply loved the beauty of the mountains, watercourses and ancient forests that surround the city and that for Francis were one of the most joyful representations of creation and God.

There are many traces of the passage of Francis in Spoleto’s historical centre, which, on Saturday 26 May, will be the object of an urban trekking, aimed at telling how, even after almost eight centuries, the entire territory is still permeated by the figure of the “poor man” of Assisi.

The departure is scheduled from Piazza Duomo where, through the visit to the Cathedral of S. Maria Assunta and the Letter of St. Francis to Brother Leone, the Franciscan presence in Spoleto will be illustrated.

You will then move to Piazza Campello with a visit to the outside of the complex of San Simone.

The final part of the trek will include the tour of the fortress to talk about the first Franciscan settlement on the Colle Sant’Elia and present the sacredness of Monteluco at the beginning of Franciscanism.

Departure at 10.00 a.m.
Duration: 2 h approx

MASTERPIECES OF THE 14th CENTURY. The worksite of Giotto, Spoleto and the Apennines @ Museo Diocesano - Basilica di Sant’Eufemia - Museo Nazionale del Ducato
Jun 24 – Nov 4 all-day
<!--:it-->CAPOLAVORI DEL TRECENTO. Il cantiere di Giotto, Spoleto e l’Appennino<!--:--><!--:en-->MASTERPIECES OF THE 14th CENTURY. The worksite of Giotto, Spoleto and the Apennines<!--:--> @ Museo Diocesano - Basilica di Sant’Eufemia - Museo Nazionale del Ducato | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

A great century for a great exhibition in Umbria.

Masterpieces of the 14th century. The worksite of Giotto, Spoleto and the Apennines, curated by Vittoria Garibaldi and Alessandro Delpriori, will be held from 24 June to 4 November 2018 in the towns of Trevi, Montefalco, Spoleto and Scheggino.

The exhibition boasts an exhibition of about 70 gold-bottomed paintings on wood, polychrome wooden sculptures and miniatures, which tell the environmental wonder of the central Apennines and the historical, artistic, civil and socio-religious civilization in Italy in the early fourteenth century.

There are four exhibition venues: in Trevi the Museum of St. Francis; in Spoleto the Diocesan Museum – Basilica of St. Euphemia and the National Museum of the Duchy; in Montefalco the Museum Complex of St. Francis. At the Spazio Arte Valcasana in Scheggino it will be possible to experience a choral, exciting overview of the churches, hermitages and abbeys in Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo and Lazio where the artists influenced by Giotto worked between the end of the thirteenth century and the beginning of the fourteenth century, connected through organized itineraries that will allow you to discover enchanting places and works of art.

The exhibition, organized by Civita Mostre and Sistema Museo, is promoted by the municipalities of Trevi, Montefalco, Spoleto and Scheggino, the Polo Museale Umbria, the Superintendence of Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape of Umbria, Umbria Region, The Archdiocese of Spoleto-Norcia and the Associazione Rocca Albornoziana of Spoleto, with the contribution of Gal Valle Umbra and Sibillini, ATI 3 Umbria, VUS COM Spa, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Foligno, Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Spoleto.

The success, in the green heart of Italy, of Giotto’s revolutionary lesson and of the amazing virtuosity of the Sienese leaders Pietro Lorenzetti and Simone Martini, will be told in the exhibition through a constellation of artists, often anonymous, who became interpreters of the deepest and truest soul of the Apennines, interpreting emotions of faith and sweetness, painted with an intense pictorial language, and a surprising technical teaching. It will be possible to see wonderful masterpieces preserved in museums and collections of great prestige, such as the Cini Foundation in Venice, the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan, the Alana Collection in Newark (USA).

Visitors to these exhibitions will experience the privilege of admiring works made visible for the first time to the general public. We remember the two amazing raredos exhibited in the representative apartment of His Holiness the Pope, both coming from Montefalco, restored for the occasion by the masterful laboratories of the Vatican Museums; or the extraordinary reunion of the Triptych with the Coronation of the Virgin by the Master of Cesi and the Crucifix with Christus triumphans, both created for the monastery of Santa Maria della Stella in Spoleto, now preserved in the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris and the Museum of the Duchy of Spoleto. For the first time, since the beginning of the nineteenth century, they will come back together.

Visiting the exhibition sites, and the places in the territory, it will be possible to enter a medieval artist’s workshop, to understand the virtuous and feverish commitment in realizing gold funds, sculptures, miniatures, goldsmiths, frescoes, in a kaleidoscope of refined and original personalities who lived their point of reference in one of the artistic capitals of medieval Italy, the ducal city of Spoleto: the Master of Le Palazze the Master of St. Alò, the Master of San Felice di Giano, the Master of Cesi, the Master of San Ponziano, the Master of the Cross of Trevi, the Master of the Cross of Visso, the Master of Fossa.

An exhibition to get to know and be amazed.

The scientific committee of the exhibition is composed of: Lucia Arbace, Guido Cornini, Andrea De Marchi, Giovanni Luca Delogu, Marica Mercalli, Stefania Nardicchi, Antonio Paolucci, Marco Pierini, Mario Scalini, Lisa Zanni.

THE EXHIBITION VENUES IN SPOLETO

Diocesan Museum and Basilica of St. Euphemia

The Diocesan Museum of Spoleto preserves many works that testify the art of painting and wood carving in this area from the half of the thirteenth century until the fifties of the following century. The exhibition section, which features masterpieces by the Master of Cesi and the Master of San Felice di Giano, is the completion of the exhibition in the church of San Francesco in Trevi. Of particular importance are the Triptych with the Coronation of the Virgin by the Master of Cesi from the Marmottan Monet Museum in Paris and the Antependium by the Master of San Felice di Giano from the National Gallery of Umbria. It will be possible to investigate in detail the relationship between wood carving and polychromy, so important for the 13th century Spoleto, in order to relate sculptors and painters who could be in the same workshop, if not match even in the same person.

<!--:it-->ANDREA PACANOWSKI  All’infuori di me - Mostra<!--:--><!--:en-->ANDREA PACANOWSKI  All’infuori di me - Exhibition<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The opening of Andrea Pacanowski’s exhibition, will take place on SATURDAY 30 JUNE at 12.00 at Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts. The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and included in the Festival Of Two Worlds’ official programme.

The Press Conference will be at 11.00 at the Piano Nobile’s gallery.

Who has not tried, at least once, a puzzle of hundreds of pieces? You will remember the images that usually make up the mosaic: long field landscapes and panoramic visions are generally the winners, with a higher share for unspoiled natures, cultural spots and human crowds. The puzzle inadvertently encloses the sense of today’s image: the disintegration of an order to be reassembled looks like the transitions between analog and digital, the transfers between device and print, the links between high and low definition… the analogical nature of the puzzle touches the close-up and depths of field, the tonal stirrups between areas of color, up to integrating the glitch (the error of position of the dowel) as a further exploratory possibility.

Andrea Pacanowski brings to Spoleto fifteen photographic works. All’infuori di me (Outside Of Me) gathers human masses, bodies in military order, people in uniform, ritual groups. They are collective patterns that come, in particular, from the religious assembly outside, from the places of aggregation of the most widespread monotheistic cults. The photos enclose pieces of humanity in a geographical frame that plays with pictorial abstraction and iconography of the web, creating an aesthetic short circuit of high workmanship, maintaining the purity of analog as a camouflage potential (simulating digital techniques through analog talent is a key step in contemporary photography). Those bodies concern the anxieties of our time, the boundaries of freedom, the need for spiritual guidance, the search for sharing, themes by the historical importance and political significance which are central in such a narcissistic era, narrated by Pacanowski with aesthetic ability and conceptual intelligence.

A photograph with a pictorial result, modulated by rhythms and grids, where colour becomes plastic structure, where rhythm compresses the internal dynamism of the image. Through the optical ambiguity of the puzzle, Pacanowski challenges the audience to the mobile vision back and forth, to define the focus, to dissolve the retinal ambiguities that the images contain. The works are photographic puzzles that break a number of certainties on the uses and abuses of digital. According to the author, each shot is a unique journey by the analogical sense, a slow immersion that requires technical knowledge, invention, the overturning of apparently immobile rules. The final image is the result of shots, combinations, stage lights and other tricks that Pacanowsky has refined in the context of Fashion, his original profession, a space of technical growth but also of robotic, emotionless perfectionism. Pacanowski felt the limit of the set and post-production, of digital as a glossy dictatorship: here he challanges the electronic staging, preferring the slow codes of an interior habitus, where the photographed skin turns into a complex geography where colours and tonalities define the invisible, where scratches and signs amplify the iconographic energy. His actions are sound trails that map out sinuous harmonies, localize details, expand emotional signals behind a body. Photography here takes the slow rhythm of the brush, revealing a metaphysical quality that leads us into a mysterious, ascetic, fatally spiritual ritual.
The Spoleto exhibition thus enters into the heart of the monotheistic cults: Christianity, Judaism, Islam. A photographic journey that tells the spontaneous methods of the great gatherings, according to an approach that captures the gravitational balances, the chromatic scales, the syncretic rhythms, the collective harmonies. An analysis to show the ethical value of each religion, the possible coexistence of diversity, the importance of dialogue as a cornerstone of a universal refounding. Pacanowski’s photography reaffirms all this, and does so with an aesthetic energy that breaks the judgment, cancelling the terms of superiority and inferiority, the dangerous personalisms, the extremist obsessions. Here we speak of harmony and freedom, of men and women who walk on the same planet, breathing the same oxygen, pursuing the same dreams, in search of that indestructible thing that everywhere is called Love.

It is photography that takes up its analogic essence, but with the best that printing and media can offer. It is not a return to the origins but the origin of a possible continuity, it is the resistance of the human factor that orchestrates fragments of universal beauty. A beauty that speaks to us of religions and syncretism, that enters the warm heart of the planet through a door of liberation of contents. Andrea Pacanowski invites us inside his rhythmic weavings, inside the multiplications of every single diversity, inside the chromatic noise of a vision that involves each of us. Because, as the title says, outside of me there are always all the others.

EUGENE LEMAY Ghost Witness Shadow – Exhibition @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Jun 30 – Oct 7 all-day
<!--:it-->EUGENE LEMAY  Ghost Witness Shadow - Mostra<!--:--><!--:en-->EUGENE LEMAY  Ghost Witness Shadow - Exhibition<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

EUGENE LEMAY – GHOST WITNESS SHADOW
curated by Gianluca Marziani

The opening of EUGENE LEMAY exhibition, is scheduled for SATURDAY 30 JUNE at 12:00 in Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts, Spoleto. The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and included in the Festival of Two Worlds’ official programme.

The Press Conference is scheduled for 11:00 at the Piano Nobile.

The Piano Nobile at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive opens its 18th-century wings to host a new artist’s project, designed in a “sartorial” way on the domestic model of the rooms. The approach with Eugene Lemay follows the usual rules of a soft, inclusive insertion, re-created with camouflage ways that blend into the ancient without substantial changes.

Integration is the right word to capture the embrace between the nature of a noble apartment and the electrical energy of a contemporary artist. On the one hand the opulent splendour of the place, on the other the metaphorical power of Lemay, his social criticism, the monolithic harshness of the works. The apparent contrast is thus transformed into a fluid integration: now the never-aggressive fullness of the place, now the expressive essence of an art that attacks the eye, loading the rooms with an invisible, yet dense magnetism.

American Eugene Lemay (1960, Grand Rapids, MI) returns to Italy after his personal exhibition in Rome at the MACRO Mattatoio (curated by Micol Di Veroli, February – April 2015). Dimensions of Dialogue was the title of that exhibition, a phrase that well encapsulates Lemay’s ethical conscience, the political and militant nature of his work. The works at Palazzo Collicola are the stations of a journey in the pain of war, in the hypocrisy of politics, in the phobia and terror that blinds, in the wounds of the flesh and those of the heart. The American artist knows the noise of bombs, the screech of lethal weapons, the smell of pouring blood. At age 13 he moved from Michigan to Israel, passing his adolescence in a kibbutz, then becoming a voluntary soldier who took up arms and fought for Israel. A very hard experience that marked his life as an American Jew, shaping his talent as if it were a storm that shapes a mountain. There are normal lives that sometimes create extraordinary tales. And then there are extraordinary lives, without safe harbors, that are sublimated in universal works, destined for the Esperanto of the eye, to the collective dimension of natural values. Eugene Lemay enters the extraordinary of a nomadic existence, culturally fertile, impressive for its events and consequences. A life inside life, so involving that it becomes an artistic thrust, so as to produce consequences in the form of works and visual messages.

Gianluca Marziani: “I am struck by the double soul of some of the works, the ability they have to mould themselves on the individual habitats. When I saw the installations in the gigantic studio in New Jersey, I thought they breathed in silence, in a neutral environment that accepted them without conflict. Once set up in Spoleto, something completely changed in them, now they began a phase of faster breathing, as if they felt an anomalous place and tried to adapt to a habitat full of memories …”.

Phantoms, witnesses, shadows… it is them who guide us ideally along the stations of the Piano Nobile, we feel them inside the paintings, beyond the frames, among the false bombs of an installation, inside the pictorial impasto, in the monochrome backgrounds of the surfaces… Lemay crosses the evil of humanity with the metaphorical pace of art, avoiding the blackmail of realism, preferring the suspended pace of allegorical rites, of archetypal figures, of the dissolving black, of the clouding grey. Through digital elaboration and manual execution, bodies and faces are recreated that seem to have been born from plasticine, wool, steam, snow, cream… they are shadows of flesh, solid ghosts, silent witnesses of the evil suffered… Arctic and nebulous bodies, similar to white bears that embrace, bend, suffer, fall, stand up… Bodies of soldiers that could become everything we would have liked them to be… Bodies that are philosophical archetypes between Plato and Nietzsche, sometimes black like shadows in the darkness of the cave, like soldiers under a starless sky… Bodies that embody pain and the desire for rebirth, divided between a necessary evil and an even more necessary good… bodies that are ghosts on their way through the world, slow but elephantine in the heavy pace that tramples on wounded lands… bodies that seem solid shadows, eyewitnesses of collective pain… bodies that seek the light of the night, the stars of the day, the distant horizon of the events.

Gianluca Marziani: “Godot arrived among us together with the silent witnesses of Lemay. Samuel Beckett’s mysterious figure arrives among the living, blurs into the crowd of ghosts and mute shadows. He doesn’t introduce himself to anyone but we understand that he is Godot, archetype among the archetypes, witness and judge who guides humans to the edge of the abyss, stopping just before the fall. In front of the emptiness he sums up the evil in an instant, caressing the suffering Earth, asking ourselves which side we want to go to… Because evil has reached its peak and beyond that peak the black hole begins, the antimatter of existence, the end of the last Endgame. Godot accompanies us on the abyss and lets us look at the infinite emptiness but also at the light behind our backs, at the possibility of a new journey, of a plausible rebirth. The choice between the black hole and the light, between a long farewell and a long love is up to all of us…”

GIORGIO ORTONA – F.I.C.O. Feticci Individui Case Oggetti – Exhibition @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Jun 30 – Oct 7 all-day
<!--:it-->GIORGIO ORTONA - F.I.C.O. Feticci Individui Case Oggetti - Mostra<!--:--><!--:en-->GIORGIO ORTONA - F.I.C.O. Feticci Individui Case Oggetti - Exhibition<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The opening of Giorgio Ortona’s exhibition, will take place on SATURDAY 30 JUNE at 12.00 at Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts. The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and included in the Festival Of Two Worlds’ official programme.

The Press Conference will be at 11.00 at the Piano Nobile’s gallery.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with Settantasette Gallery (Milan).

Rome. Pigneto. Via Braccio da Montone: a low building is in front of us, whose first floor is Giorgio Ortona’s studio, in a district that stigmatizes the merits and faults of a complex city, fabulous in evidences but decadent in attitude; a metropolis that here at the Pigneto weaves mixed building with creativity, a multi-ethnic knot with a nightlife, proletariat and technological tertiary of the new generation. From here, between Casilina and Prenestina, an author’s gaze with a drone’s philosophy scans open-field heights offering a concentric and lenticular vision of a building speculative, commercial, dissonant, populous modern Rome…

Giorgio Ortona paints not only what he sees but what his eyes smell, what his ears taste, what his mouth hears… an apparent contradiction of the senses, a true mirror of a brush that resolves the semantic contrast inside itself: a dirty yet surgical painting, swarming but dry, realistic and mental at the same time. It is a painting of healed contrasts, where the same frame of raw wood, while imitating the building site pallet, is turned into a spacer with perfect calibration. A contradiction that is also resolved in the depths: you can glimpse lines, numbers and notches that reveal the architectural nature of the table, as if the background were the cellulose on which the author designs the visions. Here the soul of an architect comes out, his past at university and his mental disposition; the angle of view that emerges certifies an imprinting but also its short-circuit, thanks to a language, painting, that redefines the deep feeling of architecture.

Painting is the habitable architecture of interior spaces

Giorgio Ortona’s Rome becomes a matrix and a genetic code, a figurative genome that crosses multiple places of the 20th century. Don’t think, however, of the usual unmade suburban capital; here, on the contrary, the beautiful social housing of the 1960s is told, some Umbertine façades between Esquiline and Colle Oppio, some residential masterpieces in Prati and San Giovanni, many monolithic buildings that fit well into the urban context, often among snake-like bypasses, elevated roads, connections and strips of asphalt. Ortona maps the Capitoline city between roofs and antennas, balconies and public greenery, creates geographies of reinforced concrete, enhances the building site with the equipment of scaffolding and cranes soaring … one could say: for some time Rome was not so “Roman” in a picture; it should be added: a Rome so meticulous as to become universal, archetype of any place grown up for crossbreeds, cultural exchanges, collective energy, political power and economic investment.

Ortona’s Rome is also the city of beloved faces, of similar bodies, of sensitive objects that capture his emotional trust. It is a world of living affections and sensations, a watchful bond with the prose of everyday life: the city outside, people and objects in apartments, on terraces, in front of a door, inside a shop, standing on the street, wherever the body, a food or an object are biological integrations of the pulsating city. The self-portrait itself, now exhibited with some variations, involves t-shirts or vests that the author, having died out in the white paint, wore at the time of the photo, thus offering us a portrait by absences, by urban evocations, by background noises.

Ortona’s urban imaginary is born from above, through Google Earth’s panoramic images. Hence the creation of a pictorial grid in which realism joins the erasures of colour, the evoked absences, the sudden fades. Areas that did not deserve a celebration, that clashed in context, that polluted the architectural eye of Ortona, they just disappeared. Merely apparent absences that turn into bands of color, recalling Nicolas De Staël and Alberto Burri, electrifying the painting with abstract volumes, so plastic as to merge with the real city.

The paintings will be accompanied by Storie di Pittura (Stories of Painting), a video that tells the artist’s life and work. An appendix that summarizes the narrative of a unique journey in the city that does not sleep, in the neighborhoods with high human temperatures, in the private worlds of an artist who architect, day by day, his inner rooms. The video was realized by Sintesi Visiva.

A passer-by through the Pigneto would say: “how cool this picture by Ortona…”

GIUSEPPE PULVIRENTI Trademark SP – Exhibition @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Jun 30 – Jul 29 all-day
<!--:it-->GIUSEPPE PULVIRENTI  Trademark SP - Mostra<!--:--><!--:en-->GIUSEPPE PULVIRENTI  Trademark SP - Exhibition<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

Saturday 30th June, at 12:00, sees the opening of Trademark SP, an exhibition by Giuseppe Pulvirenti, curated by Gianluca Marziani, at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive in Spoleto.

The exhibition is part of the official programme of the Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi.

Achille Bonito Oliva: “If sculpture is a genre that seeks forgiveness, Giuseppe Pulvirenti achieves the aim: he avoids encumbrance and exalts his ingress into the realm of Form. Cleansed of any celebratory intent or any purely descriptive representations of a functional reality, the work of art is, instead, elevated to the role of dematerialized Space and entrusted to the temporal dimension of contemplation and reflection.

As Gianluca Marziani, the exhibition’s curator, writes, “Giuseppe Pulvirenti compresses the deep mystery of sculpture into his concise and wordless volumes. He eliminates all ornament in order to focus his intervention on the inner bones of the sculptural world and on the alchemic limbo that lies between Piero della Francesca’s egg and Kubrick’s monolith. These are sculptures as activators of meaning, sculptures that become inaccessible little strong boxes, vertebrae-like pieces of compacted material on the surface of which no openings appear.

Pulvirenti guides the viewer towards a form of pure reflection, underlining the degree to which all shapes – even the most mysterious – are innate in the human mind. The artist’s task is to drag them from the depths and make of them iconic facts, lingering to consider the ambiguity of volumes, the allusive potential of the object/sculpture – to which his choice of almost always enigmatic titles contributes. This is an art that assumes metaphysical functions in order to explore the mystery of archetypical and universal forms.

At Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, Pulvirenti will be exhibiting two works in bronze and one in plaster. The two bronze sculptures, “Cruna Quadra” [square crest] and “Cruna Tonda” [round crest], both from 2018, will each stand on and against the floor and the wall, creating a physical sensation of transience. Both sculptures are signed, very evidently, with the artist’s initials – GP – and the year in which they were made, as was also the case with the works in his previous Trademark series, shown in March 2018 at the Galleria Valentina Bonomo in Rome. Here, too, Pulvirenti plays with the idea of objects produced in series, imprint the bronze with letters and numbers that distract from the their purely aesthetic appeal.

The exhibition is being presented in the room dedicated to Alexander Calder, the sculptor who, here in Spoleto, created “Teodelapio”, the 18-metre-high oneiric masterpiece that has stood in front of the station since 1962. Echoing Calder’s sculpture, Pulvirenti’s work in plaster, “Senza titolo” [untitled], again from 2018, will stand on the floor, just like the American artist’s famed Stabiles. A silent dialogue that offers a radiant homage to Calder’s surreal vertiginousness, his geometrical dilemmas, his short-circuiting of space and the notion of a reconstructed beauty.

What was previously Trademark, here becomes TRADEMARK SP, the two additional letters referring to the city of Spoleto and to the artist’s initials, GP: the “logo” for his mysterious alchemies in sculptural form.

BIOGRAPHY
Giuseppe Pulvirenti was born in Syracuse, Sicily (1956). He lives and works between Rome and Syracuse. From 1970 to 1975 he studied at the Istituto Statale d’Arte in Syracuse and the Accademia di Belle Arti in Rome where, since 1986, he has lectured in “Modellistica” [model making]. His work has featured in numerous international exhibitions, including: XI Quadriennale di Roma (1986), XLIV Biennale di Venezia (1990), Triennale di Milano (1994), Palais des Arts de Toulouse (1994), the Winchester Gallery at the Winchester School of Art, UK (1997), Rha The Gallagher in Dublin (1997) Pici Gallery in Seoul (2004), Tokyo Design Center in Gotanda (2004), 
Kuchu Teien Tenbodai Sky Gallery in Osaka (2004). Important recognition and prizes have included the Venice Biennale Purchase Award (1990). His major solo exhibitions have included: Framart studio in Milan (1992), Galleria Nuova Icona in Venice (1996), Fondazione Mudima in Milan (2000), and various exhibitions at the Galleria Ugo Ferranti in Roma (2004, 2006, 2009, 2012). In 2018 he had a solo exhibition at the Galleria Valentina Bonomo in Rome.

The exhibition ends on Sunday 29 July 2018

Spoleto, Trevi, Montefalco and Scheggino, 24 June – 4 November 2018
MASTERPIECES OF THE 14th CENTURY. Giotto’s Workshop, Spoleto and the Appennines

Curated by Vittoria Garibaldi and Alessandro Delpriori

A great century for a great exhibition in Umbria. 70 works on display, among golden backgrounds and statues coming from prestigious collections in Italy and abroad, to present the extraordinary artistic heritage on the background of the political, religious, social and artistic climate of the period. The four exhibiting spaces include the Museum of St. Francis in Trevi, the Diocesan Museum and the Museum of the Duchy in Spoleto, the St. Francis Museum Complex in Montefalco. The Valcasana Spazio Arte in Scheggino is instead the start of itineraries to delve into the world of the exhibited artists in their original contexts.

On the turn of the 13th-14th centuries, Umbria is the stage of the Middle Ages’ most important artistic revolution. Anonymous artists such as Maestro delle Palazze, Maestro di Sant’Alò, Maestro di Cesi, Maestro della Croce di Trevi, Maestro della Croce di Visso, Maestro di Fossa, often painters and sculptors at the same time, represent a pictorial school by the high cultural interest, though little known, and testify to the artistic vitality of the Appennines area.

Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive and Casa Romana, from 30 June
PALAZZO COLLICOLA ARTI VISIVE EXHIBITIONS
in the frame of the 61st FESTIVAL OF TWO WORLDS

A polyphonic symphony of glances on the world that boils over. Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive proposes nations, languages and themes by the strong ethical hold. American EUGENE LEMAY’s installations and paintings mix current themes with the artist’s personal fortunes. ANDREA PACANOWSKI proposes a series of crowds associated with their monotheistic faiths, global realities that turn into geometric rhythm, chromatic harmony, figurative balance. GIORGIO ORTONA leads us to his gaunt, analytical painting, a figurative reflection on the deep structures that rule man, the city, buildings and objects. Israeli YIGAL OZERI authors baffling female portraits by the enticing pictorial hyperrealism. GIUSEPPE PULVIRENTI’s mysterious sculptures are small objects by the cerebral rigour and metaphysical heart. GIORGIO FACCHINI’s artistic jewels efficiently dialogue with the works of the permanent collection, while ROBERTA PIZZORNO displays her Indian ink drawings and oneiric watercolours. The Casa Romana is where the TTOZOI duo lands after the success at the Reggia di Caserta and Pompei: their exhibition, featuring natural mould, fits in the place with sideral perfection. Japanese TORU HAMADA’s next autumn exhibition is anticipated by a marble sculpture in front of the Teatro Nuovo, well integrated with the city’s collection of open-air works of art. DAVID POMPILI’s installation at the entrance of Palazzo Collicola is a tribute to Spoleto’s most famous characters, a cloud between memory and future.

JULIE BORN SCHWARTZ:
EX-VOTO

a project by Mahler & LeWitt Studios
supported by The Goldstone Family Foundation

Danish film-maker Julie Born Schwartz presents Ex-voto, a video-installation on three screens exploring expressions of faith and spirituality. The film is partly set in the sanctuary of Santa Rita da Cascia in Umbria, where pilgrims plead for intercession to the saint of “lost causes”.
Born Schwartz was the first film-maker who was allowed access to the secluded areas of the convent in Cascia, where she interviewed and recorded the monastery’s nuns.
XXth-century French conceptual artist Yves Klein was devout to Santa Rita and offered her a number of ex-votoes. An ex-voto is a religious offer in support of a prayer. Klein’s ex-votoes appear here and there along with Born Schwartz’ meetings with Santa Rita’s contemporary devotees. The film also includes other spiritually-connoted places around Spoleto, including the oneiric complex of Tomaso Buzzi in Montegabbione, “La Scarzuola”, and an underwater church used by Russian film director Andrei Tarkovsky in his Nostalghia.

SPOLETO 1959 – THE SECOND FESTIVAL OF TWO WORLDS

curated by Paolo Bianchi and Antonella Manni

“1959 is an important year, the Festival is announced with a progressive number, the 2nd Festival of Two Worlds. It’s a sign, uncertain as it may be, of the will to move forward on the wings of the success of the previous year”. This is what Sandro Morichelli and Gianni Toscano wrote in 1987. The latter was the communist mayor who in 1958 had opened the festival by welcoming the “Americans” around Gian Carlo Menotti with open arms. The second Festival of Spoleto is prepared in the background of a city that feels the need and the first signs of a profound change both in economic and infrastructural terms. Together with the experimentation of new show formulas, such as Album Leaves directed by Steven Vinaver and Fogli d’Album directed by Franco Zeffirelli, there is an urge for new spaces to be used for the theatre, for exhibitions as well as for the stagecraft workshops and for the offices in charge of the organization. Just as we begin to talk about converting the Rocca Albornoziana for cultural purposes. “1959 is also the year of the invention of the Concert in Piazza del Duomo – writes Maurizio Modugno – We don’t know to whom it is due: maybe Schippers himself can have borrowed the idea from Tanglewood, from Ravinia, from the evenings at the Lewisohn Stadium or Aix-en-Provence. What is sure is that it immediately becomes an event of resounding musical and personal appeal for Tommy and Spoleto”.
On the occasion of the sixty-first edition of the Festival of Two Worlds, continuing a project started for the sixtieth edition, through a conference, a book, an exhibition, you retrace extraordinary moments in the history of the city to re-read the origins of the event, understand the heritage in the present, trace future scenarios.

ROBERTA PIZZORNO Full of Emptiness – Exhibition @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Jun 30 – Oct 7 all-day
<!--:it-->ROBERTA PIZZORNO  Full of Emptiness - Mostra<!--:--><!--:en-->ROBERTA PIZZORNO  Full of Emptiness - Exhibition<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The opening of Roberta Pizzorno’s exhibition, on SATURDAY 30 JUNE at 12.00 at Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts.

The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and included in the Festival Of Two Worlds’ official programme. The Press Conference will be at 11.00 at the Piano Nobile’s gallery.

Roberta Pizzorno brings to Spoleto the figurative results of a long work with Indian ink and watercolours. Two years ago the artist settled in Spoleto and started a fruitful collaboration with Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive, which originated a number of projects integrating given drawing techniques in Sistema Museo’s workshops. This exhibition is a report in progress, a synthesis that finds an ideal exhibiting workshop at the Sten & Lex hall.

The point: the start of everything, the primordial factor, the beginning of the cognitive journey. Point as prologue and first chapter of the existing, a suspended moment in which every shape is possible, every freedom is ready for the free ones, every beauty potentially available.

…cellular microworld, cosmic gigantism, plant life, animal world…

Point, line and curve define Pizzorno’s interior filiations, her inner cosmogony, her space of aesthetic awareness. The gesture, disciplined and daily, acts by lines and curves, creating flying bio-forms, gaseous volumes, solids without apparent weight. Indian ink and watercolour share the executive process and recreate two parallel but dialoguing worlds, united by a gesture that acts as a bridge between the formal souls.

The point, similarly to a cell, begins to hear the noises of the Planet, records clear sounds and subliminal trails, looks for the next point to define the narrative chain of the line, of the sliding forward, of the dialogue that does not stop but recreates the phrases of our conscious dream.

Dealing with the line, that is, the path of the form, the development of an idea in its necessary skeleton.
The line as an ambition for knowledge, a search for the open margin, an adventure into the pulsating mystery of the future. A line that always travels forward, following the movement of the hand and the eye of the feelings. The line as a watchful conscience of the progress.

…directions of the essential black&white, harmonic rhythms, directions of the colour beyond the essence…

That soft line confirms the clarity of a pacified gaze, free from worldly chains and social ties. Pizzorno comes out of the appearances of reality to build visual subjects that fly in the gravitational radius of fantasy. They are complex embryos where human, animal and plant belong to the same biological consciousness. The pulsing metamorphosis becomes the genetic reason of his lovable bodies, the harmony of the dialogue guides the rituality of the continuous gesture. They are forms that produce wonder…

Our artist practices harmony and balance as if it were a respiratory rite. Her projects have no knots or protrusions, on the contrary they appear fluid and musical, pure entropy in a huddled form. The work turns into a continuous self-portraying through emotional fragments, a diary that stretches along the ritual curves of life. Point, line and curve make the gesture a kind of continuous and conscious breathing, so similar to the contracting and expanding of the universe.

Addressing the curve, that is, the form in its complexity, towards the sense that defines a project.
Curve as a plan of intuition, a cosmic and inner seismograph that draws the short-circuit, the cohabitations, the final harmony. A curve that speaks of evolution, synaesthesias, beauty. Soft corners that walk the slope and then hover in the air through the watercolour,

…drawing to understand, until the eye begins to see again…

I like to think that the artist’s flying bodies are cosmic eyes that enclose the secret formulas of emotions, feelings, clear beauty, cognitive clarity. Bodies of bright ink, dark, to engrave like sensitive grooves, majestic in their ethereal fullness. Bodies made of Indian ink, bodies of a very Italian and geolocalized Made in China. Bodies also made of liquid watercolor, gestalt membranes of a private and exciting Made in Herself.

The exhibition ends on Sunday 7 October 2018

TTOZOI – GENIUS LOCI (REWORKS) – Exhibition @ Casa Romana
Jun 30 – Oct 7 all-day
<!--:it-->TTOZOI - GENIUS LOCI (REWORKS) - Mostra<!--:--><!--:en-->TTOZOI - GENIUS LOCI (REWORKS) - Exhibition<!--:--> @ Casa Romana | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The opening of the TTOZOI duo’s exhibition, on SATURDAY 30 JUNE at 16.00 at the Casa Romana in Spoleto.

The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and included in the Festival Of Two Worlds’ official programme. The Press Conference will be at 11.00 at the Piano Nobile’s gallery.

GENIUS LOCI, conceived by Stefano Forgione and Giuseppe Rossi, curated by Gianluca Marziani, originates from the idea of creating works of art directly in the chosen historical places, through the original technique of natural proliferation of mould on jute, with further painting additions.

Gianluca Marziani: Mould becomes a pure linguistic code, a biological application that leads painting to the limit of its possible mutations. TTOZOI’s grammar regenerates the archetypal models of Calzolari and Penone, bringing the iconographic orbit back into the evolutionary perimeters of the painting. The natural action is not dispersed but takes place on circumscribed surfaces, under the control of the space of action. An event between randomness and control that radicalizes the link between Art and Nature, making biology a collaborative and elaborative phenomenon. A lively dialectic that brings the creative factor into the beating heart of the natural cycle…

The “naturally informal conceptualism” or “the naturally absolute informal” that is at the base of TTOZOI’s work, evolves its natural creative process, coming into contact with three UNESCO sites, universal symbols of Italian architectural and archaeological culture: the REGGIA DI CASERTA (November 2017) with its Sanniti necropolis dating back to the 4th century BC, brought to light in 1990 in the area below the second courtyard; the AMPHITHEATRE OF THE POMPEI ARCHEOLOGICAL COMPLEX (December 2017) where the duo used the ambulacra, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 and then brought to light; finally the COLOSSEUM (soon), the largest amphitheatre in the world, global symbol of Rome and icon of Italy. Within this process that becomes molecular and conceptual fusion, the exhibition arrives at the CASA ROMANA in Spoleto, a sort of exhibition spin-off that inserts a private residence between the three monumental stages.

Gianluca Marziani: The three chosen areas represent the apotheosis of the Italic genius, the archaeological peak of ancient lustres of human genius. Inside this monumental cycle a passage of recollection was needed, an intimate dimension of the natural process. A domestic adaptation that would bring the works back into the space of the domestic cycle, where historical memory is linked to the design of modern habitats….

The Roman House in Spoleto, dating to the beginning of the first century A.D., is a stately home discovered by Spoletan archaeologist Giuseppe Sordini in 1885-1886 and dug several times until 1914. It is located partly under the Town Hall Square and partly under the Town Hall of which it occupies the foundations. Today it is the most visited site by tourists in Spoleto.
In Spoleto there will be a rigorous selection of the works from the first two stages, as well as a project of site-specific proliferation, designed for the impluvium of the Roman House. Fifteen works will be inserted with camouflage and respect for the environment, almost to blend the living nature of stones with the controlled nature of natural mould.

Gianluca Marziani: The integration with the places occurs through branched proliferation. No longer something purely formal but a process that integrates visible and invisible, memory and present, history and news, individuals and communities…

In the first two stages the artists created the works in situ, installing some sealed showcases in which the canvases remained for about 40 days: Time and Nature did the rest. During the gestation it is the canvas that captures the humus, the soul of every place, going beyond the visible, allowing the memory of the cultural “container” to be transferred to it through two factors: the “emotional conditioning” and the “environmental conditioning”, able to evoke the history and the suggestions of the chosen places in the observer’s mind.

The informal process, carried out by four hands, involves the use of organic materials (various flours), water and natural pigments on jute canvases, then placed in special cases that encourage the natural proliferation of moulds, with always different manifestations; feeding themselves on the organic part only, the spores interact with the work according to an unpredictable, apparently chaotic scheme. TTOZOI actually monitors the progression of the process, until it decides to interrupt it, according to a declination of “saving from aesthetics in pureness”. Only at this point will the canvases be pictorially finished and completed, leaving the traces of the passage of nature visible.

Gianluca Marziani: Informal painting finds its most significant evolution, an aesthetic landing place that distorts the interpretative factor of the works. All abstract appearances are transformed into a process with a high figurative value, where what we see leads us far beyond the pure form, into the pictorial stratification of memories, experiences, dynamic processes, external contributions…

Thursday 19 July, 2018 a personal exhibition is scheduled at the Reggia di Caserta. A closing exhibition will be held, finally, in a prestigious Capitoline museum, so as to expose all the works made in the three monumental complexes. In Caserta the complete cycle that was realized in the months of proliferation inside the Sanniti necropolis will be exhibited.

TTOZOI_Biography
Stefano Forgione (Avellino, 1969) and Giuseppe Rossi (Naples, 1972) are the two artists who operate under the pseudonym of TTOZOI since 2010, when their personal exhibition was held at Castel Dell’Ovo (curated by Luca Beatrice). Stefano (Degree in Architecture) and Giuseppe (Degree in Economics) are both self-taught. Since their adolescence they have been experimenting with various artistic techniques (charcoal, Indian ink, watercolour, acrylic, oil, spray, collage…) and approached the History of Art to deepen their knowledge of Informal culture, following their aesthetic and conceptual vocation. In December 2006 the common passion for informal themes will bring the two together again, after years spent in various Italian cities. At the centre of their confrontation there is the awareness that “Art has always been Contemporary” and that “the Artist cannot operate without the past”: hence the elaboration of a project – based on “concept” and “form”, “time” and “matter” – that is becoming the spokesperson of a small revolution in the experimental field of painting. TTOZOI is the creator of the so-called “intervention void”, a real expectation, following the simultaneous four-hand action on the canvas.

The exhibition ends on Sunday 7 October 2018

YIGAL OZERI Where are we going? – Exhibition @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive
Jun 30 – Oct 7 all-day
<!--:it-->YIGAL OZERI  Where are we going? - Mostra<!--:--><!--:en-->YIGAL OZERI  Where are we going? - Exhibition<!--:--> @ Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive | Spoleto | Umbria | Italia

The opening of YIGAL OZERI exhibition, is scheduled for SATURDAY 30 JUNE at 12:00 in Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts, Spoleto.

The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and included in the Festival of Two Worlds’ official programme. The Press Conference is scheduled for 11:00 at the Piano Nobile.

Painting is defining new relationships with technological media, confirming itself as the most attractive, absorbing and intense visual code of the new millennium. Centuries pass, progress flows but the idea that painting embodies a solid permanence, a densely biological language, detonator of resistant metaphysics and symbols that can be handed down does not change. Painting has many dialogues with the photographic world: a virtuous combination to encode a transmedia aesthetic, a metaphorical mirror of a present with a high visual consumption. In a historical period of linguistic revision, it was natural for the photorealist code to regain its operational and conceptual centrality. Also because today, far from the beginnings of Chuck Close and Richard Estes, the hyperrealist language absorbs digital cells and modifies painting into a hybrid, calibrated on 3D and 4D projections, on smartphone operating systems, on shooting and editing photographic software. Hyperrealist painting has thus been transformed into post-digital painting, a sort of pictorial GMO that has metabolized analogical photography, sedimenting various traces of future memory in its mixture.

Yigal Ozeri’s post-digital painting focuses on WOMEN…

Eva continues to fuel the ecstasy of two-dimensional art. She, the First Woman of desire, the milestone of the narrative, the erotic archetype of humanity still radiates the artistic ambition of the trace, the outline, the sign, the color… The creation generally pursues resisting icons, seeks out the whims that are the Stonehenge of emotional education. Woman has always been swimming at the center of artistic thought, guiding the historical document but also the revolutionary action, the change, the militant struggle. Telling the story of a woman in a painting means acting from the beginning to frame complexity; it means loving and sharing, using the language of the body and the gaze, chemistry and alchemy; it means hiding ethical messages in the folds of a dress, in the reflection inside the eye, in the posture of the face, in the objects worn…

Woman as symbolic detonator for a social, political, cultural rebirth…

Yigal Ozeri (1958) is an Israeli author who lives and works in New York, in the city that best stimulates his imagination, in a perpetual physical rhythm that sticks to his thematic intentions. From the streets, from the faces, from the bodies on the way, the artist gets sensations that he transfers in his shoot with the models in pose, when he defines the portfolio from which he will obtain the images to paint. Let’s not think, however, of the old codes of hyperrealist painting, today there are no catalogues of streets, machines, shop windows or other fetishes of the American model. The lucid coldness of his predecessors turns into a warm, emotionally involved eye, in search of fluid eroticism, of a Raphaelite but also digital youth, and of a barrier-free sensuality. Ozeri’s women are revolutionary detonators that act on the eye. They don’t scream, they don’t embrace weapons, they don’t distill hatred, they look ahead and forward, towards the upset world, the psychotic drifts, the cultures of terror. They do so from their silent places, from the quiet contexts in which they live their pictorial eternity. They look at each of us, striking our eyes, our civic conscience, acting with slow and prolonged release, as it happens with Literature and Poetry.

That feminine look, so calm and suspended, has something revolutionary about it…

Ozeri’s universe is reconnected to a Western tradition, especially Italian, of female portraiture, from the virginal faces of 16th-century Florence to the neoclassical white of Antonio Canova, through the 19th century by Giovanni Boldini, the 20th century by Amedeo Modigliani… Ozeri crosses the matrices of the feminine and leads them to an urban, multiracial, heterogeneous epic. His creatures are the Madonnas of our times, the Saints of a chaotic present, the great ladies of a virtual but not always virtuous today. They are the amazons of the visible city, the sherpas of our inner journey, the young mothers of humanity who see the future. They are the answer to the culture of violence, a soft counterattack of beauty blows and poetic actions. You can be sure: the future of humanity will have to pass through the trajectories of the sublime, of ecstasy, of desire, of beauty…

Ozeri’s women come straight from the present, yet they seem out of time, beyond the space of creation, floating like stars across the centuries. Their looks, their postures, their bodies are fragments of a long sentimental discourse, born with life and destined to last beyond ourselves, beyond the contingency of everyday life. Ozeri’s women symbolize a resisting iconography, proof of a perennial regeneration that only painting (and sculpture in part) can make possible. Because these girls of radiant sensuality, shining in their glances, magical in their way of looking, tell the story of the indissoluble resistance of the painting, the ability to infect the future with the memory of an eternal present. They are no longer simple models but a model of beauty that can be handed down, a semantics of the indissoluble, a trace of the infinite imagined and dreamed of.

Those women seem to tell us, “Where are we going? What are we doing? How can we improve things?” There are no answers in the paintings, of course, because art only deals with questions. At the same time, their eyes guide us across the threshold, into the ocean of doubt, evoking the possibility of an island, of a safe harbor for our conscience. A place to clarify the gaze, trying to provide an answer.
The only male figure in the exhibition is the artist himself, a black-and-white foreground who observes like a demiurge in front of the students. The expressive face and the hair have the meticulous impact of the portraits by Bronzino and Rembrandt, that surgical way of managing the climax with admirable dramaturgy. Yigal Ozeri embodies the eyes of our possible answers, resembling a guide who observes us as Beauty reveals the coordinates of the island.

ATLAS – ALESSANDRA BALDONI
TEXTS BY ANDREA TOMASINI

Saturday 30 June at 18:30 | Spoleto, ADD-art Gallery

For the first time, the ADD-art gallery presents artist and photographer Alessandra Baldoni’s ATLAS in full, with texts by Andrea Tomasini.
The work springs out from the meeting of the artist with Aby Warburg’s Atlas Mnemosyne, in which Warburg explores the surfacing of the images of ancient deities and symbols in modern European culture. Hence the idea of looking for the visual place where the world “rhymes”, a sort of chorus between things – animal faces, nature, statues – to find a sense, a cataloging by shape, colour, meaning. Sequences in search of an assonance, images that call each other while sharing the same secret. Alessandra Baldoni’s Atlas tells a story of ties and ropes, of meanings that hide and disclose. A rule, a math of beauty.

GIORGIO FACCHINI talks with the works of the Collezione Carandente… accompanied on the precious journey by jewels by Arman, Bury, Calder, Fontana, Lichtenstein, Picasso, A. Pomodoro, G. Pomodoro…

curated by Gianluca Marziani

The opening of the ARTIST’S JEWELS exhibition, will take place on SATURDAY 7 JULY at 12.00 at Palazzo Collicola Visual Arts. The exhibition is curated by Gianluca Marziani and included in the Festival Of Two Worlds’ official programme.

Giorgio Facchini, from Marche, contemporary jewel sculptor, returns to Spoleto with an exhibition inside the Collezione Carandente at Palazzo Collicola Arti Visive. It is a selection of unique pieces, and an outside sculpture, all done following a chronological thread and miltiple figurative keys. The performing quality, the visionary theme and the expressive strength provide the contents for his dialectics between gold and XXth-century art, in an iconographic process that touches Informal Art, Surrealism, Spatialism, Cinetic Art and Constructivism. Facchini’s works converse with the works included in the Collezione Carandente, interesting duets in which his creations, placed inside display cases, enter in vituous tune with the chosen work. A unique project, conceived with an artistic approach, to give the jewel the universal character of a small-sized, pure sculpture.

Gianluca Marziani: “A man-sized sculpture, dark monolith by the complex plot, challenges the intimate vision and creates a short-circuit between the full scale and the huddled dimension of the small scale. The work offers an iconic bridge between sculptural jewel and thorough sculpting, where the relief’s reasons confirm the hybrid approach of an author by the slipping, contaminated nature. If the jewels yearns for the body as if it was an exhibiting space, likewise the melting sculpture contracts its soul in a gigantism of precious thing by the modelistic heart.”

Tommaso Trini: “Sculpture innervates each of Facchini’s artifacts, as shown by the circularity of portrayed features.
Symbolic signs and allegorical figures always conjure a plastic concert, a chromatic choir by the peculiar, circular eloquence, though knotted down to a plane. Facchini creates refined sculptures, open toward the outside, without inflating them in rowdy monuments. He prefers hermetic meetings. His internationally-known jewels’ geometrical construct is also circular. They don’t just embrace life-pulsing wrists, they shroud ears and chests like convex constructs, a convexity already held dearest in De Chirico’s paintings. Facchini’s creations are a curved flow of precious stones and metals on shields of light. The strength of the essence makes them even more a model, the more essential they are.

Carlo Bo: “Facchini starts as a goldsmith and then becomes a sculptor. Following his family’s tradition, he is an inventor, a creator. You could also say that by dint of perfecting his first reasons, he could later pick up some backlashes of truth and penetration…”

Vittorio Rubiu: “The start of his style is relating to some sort of primordial or symbolic form, detaching from geometry to then reactivate it, following a more intimate, hidden willfulness, always with a very selected taste of matter, an invention, an experimentation that have little to do with traditional goldsmithing. Hence his constant interest for sculpture and his capacity to apply the spatial theme of sculpture to the jewel with an intensity, clarity and firmness that challenge the meticulousness of the performance, no matter how rich and admirable…”
Giancarlo Menotti: “As everybody knows, gold is evil, but in Facchini’s hands it can become fragile and delicate like a melodic sentence.”

Gianluca Marziani: “Thinking wearable sculpture as a journey from micro to macro, where balance, spatial harmony anc compressed tension count more than dimension. Facchini’s jewels originate from a projecting that looks like a sculptor’s modular passages magnifying drawings sprouting out displacing visions; here the process is reversed, the drawing is shaped to fit the volume to be worn.”

The artists chosen for the dialogue are Alexander Calder, Sol LeWitt, Leoncillo, Beverly Pepper, Carla Accardi, Franco Angeli, Fausto Melotti, Giuseppe Capogrossi, Mario Schifano, Toti Scialoja, Luigi Ontani, Mario Ceroli, Henry Moore, Giuseppe Uncini, Alberto Garutti, Gianni Dessì, Shay Frisch, Giovanni Albanese…

A special section of the exhibition features some jewels created by great XXth-century artists. A hall will feature works selected by Facchini and Marziani among the best proposal on the international market. Masterpieces by Arman, Pol Bury, Alexander Calder, Lucio Fontana, Roy Lichtenstein, Niki de Saint Phalle, Pablo Picasso, Arnaldo Pomodoro, Giò Pomodoro…

COLLEZIONE CARANDENTE The project of the Carandente Collection grows on solid foundations, along never-static roots that speak of Italian art in the second half of the twentieth century, of now legendary sculptors, international names but also local artists who have fueled the cultural consciousness of Spoleto and its extensive surroundings. The foundations of this museum concern the historical core of its collection, a heritage that Giovanni Carandente built with dedication and passion, documenting the artistic events of Spoleto, design dreams (Sculptures in the city), fixed events (Spoleto Prize, Festival dei Due Mondi), the Group of Spoleto, the research of Italian and foreign masters, up to the special relationship with Leoncillo Leonardi, the most important of the “local” artists, inventor of the Spoleto Prize, among the main architects of the city’s cultural maturation. Starting from here was necessary: the philological qualities of the heritage, its iconographic peculiarities, the private connections that have become the historical conscience of the project and of its necessary evolutions. On this basis, convinced that a collection must follow the spirit of the times, it was necessary to shape a new exhibition layout, creating more rigorous and connective settings, using white as a living counterpoint, inviting the public to a reborn empathy, to an emotional and sensory journey, to an assonant narrative between memory and future.

BIOGRAPHY Giorgio Facchini was born in Fano in 1947. When he was very young, while devoting himself to drawing, he attended the studio of a goldsmith, an uncle of his. He later met sculptor Edgardo Mannucci, fundamental for his formation, while continuing his studies in Venice. He made his debut with some jewels, first informal and then spatial, made with the “osso di seppia” technique (Italian for cuttlefish bone). The first exhibition takes place at the Fanesi Gallery in Ancona. In 1967 he won first prize at the Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice. In 1969 he began to create kinetic jewels. In the same year, Pierre Cardin invited him to Paris to present his jewellery together with his autumn/winter fashion collections. In 1970 he took part in an exhibition at Fumanti, a Roman jewellery company specialising in artists’ pieces. Also in the 1970s, exhibitions at the Galleria Levi in Milan, La Nuova Pesa in Rome, La Triennale in Milan. In 1971 he won the First Prize at the VI Gubbio Metal Art Biennial. In 1972 he exhibited at the Drummonds jewelry store in Melbourne. In these years he developed his ties with the Festival dei Due Mondi, until in 1974 he minted the gold medal commissioned by the Festival. In the same year he exhibited in the United States at the Wichita Museum. In 1981 a new solo show at Drummonds, then a large exhibition at the Pinacoteca di Macerata. In 1992 he participated in Oro d’Autore. In 1997 he held a solo exhibition at the Archaeological Museum of Milan. In 2001 he was featured in important exhibitions at Palazzo Pitti in Florence and Mole Vanvitelliana in Ancona. In 2006 he received a tribute within the International Review G.B. Salvi in Sassoferrato. In 2009 he participated in the exhibition “Italian sculpture in the jewel of an artist from the second half of the 20th century” at the Attilio and Cleofe Gaffoglio Museum in Rapallo. In 2010 he exhibited at the Sturni Antiquities Gallery in Rome. Besides jewelry, Facchini is dedicated to sculpture and medallistics. He has taught plastic disciplines at the Academy of Fine Arts in Macerata and at the Brera Academy in Milan.

The exhibition ends on Sunday 29 July 2018
