Comunicato stampa

La Galleria Riccardo Crespi presenta Echo, la terza personale in galleria di Gal Weinstein, uno degli artisti israeliani più significativi degli ultimi decenni: ha rappresentato il suo Paese nella scorsa edizione della Biennale di Venezia e in innumerevoli altre manifestazioni internazionali.

L’opera di Weinstein si basa su soggetti iconici manipolati per rappresentare, non senza una sottile ironia, la contemporaneità. Dopo il successo del suo Padiglione Israele, l’artista torna in Italia con opere che sono state concettualmente originate proprio da quella esperienza, mostrando la diversa resistenza di alcuni materiali e manifestandone i processi di dissoluzione, decomposizione e invecchiamento



Processi immaginari o concreti che indicano il passare del tempo e le fluttuazioni tra i diversi stati della materia, come metafora del nostro inquieto presente nella sua realtà politica, materiale e simbolica.

--------------------------

Riccardo Crespi gallery presents Echo, the third solo exhibition in the gallery by Gal Weinstein, one of the most popular Israeli artists in recent years: he represented his Country in the last edition of the Venice Biennale and in countless other International events.

Weinstein's work is based on iconic subjects, then manipulated to represent contemporaneity, not without a subtle irony. After the success of his Israel Pavilion in the last edition of the Venice Biennale, the artist returns to Italy with works that have been conceptually originated from that experience, they show the diverse resistance of some materials, manifesting procedures of dissolution, decomposition and aging.

Concrete processes that indicate the passage of time and the fluctuations between the different states of matter, that could be interpreted as a metaphor of our restless present in its political, material and symbolic reality.
