mostra Gravity of Variations, dedicata agli artisti Francesco Arecco e Marco La Rosa, presso la Galleria Iaga International Art Gallery Angels, nuovo spazio espositivo dedicato all’arte contemporanea ed emergente e presso Casa Matei Corvin, a Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

La mostra, curata da Ilaria Bignotti e Walter Bonomi, presenta opere inedite dei due artisti, che sono stati chiamati a dialogare con il contesto storico che li ospita e a riflettere sul concetto di gravità, interpretato come forza che lega l’opera d’arte alla terra e alle cose quotidiane e sul concetto di variazione, a sottolineare la loro sperimentazione e ricerca artistica




The exhibition, dedicated to two Italian artists of deep and focused research, sensitive to the languages neo-conceptual and neo-minimal, aims to reflect on the concept of gravity, both as force / destiny that binds the work of art to the world, both as a moral gravity, awareness and responsibility: key issues for any artist who intend their work as union between ethics and aesthetics. The term of the variation, understood as modulation and experimentation around a basic assumption, emphasizes the meaning of the work of the two artists and their works. Issues that otherwise translate the works of Francesco Arecco and Marco La Rosa, who respectively choose the materials of wood and glass, of cement and gypsum alabaster, as metaphors of their poetry. The exhibition is divided into two spaces, presenting numerous new works and site-specific. In the IAGA Gallery, the works of Arecco and La Rosa are compared in a game of references, communicating from one wall to another with rhythmic dissonance. In the spaces of Casa Matei Corvin, Arecco proposes the installation of a dozen artworks arranged in the large vaulted hall, between concealment and appearance of the object, while Marco La Rosa responded to the suggestion of the space through an installation site-specific of artworks in alabaster gypsum, intended to transform the negative into the positive, the vacuum in the solid and make visible otherwise invisible forces.
