La Galleria Maria Grazia Del Prete è lieta di presentare Nine Men’s Morris, prima personale romana dell’artista inglese Kit Craig (Oxford, 1980), a cura di

Silvia Colaiacomo, in collaborazione con Pericle Guaglianone e con il patrocinio del British Council. L’artista ha realizzato per l’occasione un corpus di nuovi

lavori-indagine sulla concretizzazione visiva e oggettuale del linguaggio. Come un gioco di ruolo e dominata dalle sue stesse dinamiche, la comunicazione

si fonda su limitate combinazioni di concetti mutualmente comprensibili o all’apparenza tali

Libero da supponenza razionalista, il lavoro di Kit Craig esplora la

definizione di significati condivisi attraverso la scomposizione di forme primarie, creando eleganti scenari di logica pura privi di vanità.





Kit Craig si diploma presso Chelsea School of Art & Design - MA Fine Art. Tra le sue mostre personali: 2011 On Measuring

Uncertainty (con Andrew Lim) Castlefield Gallery Manchester, UK; 2010 173cm Arcade, Londra, UK; 2009 Galleria Norma

Kit Craig, Nine Men’s Morris

Curated by Silvia Colaiacomo

Opening: Thursday 27th October 2011

Until 10th December 2011

In collaboration with Pericle Guaglianone

Maria Grazia Del Prete Gallery, via di Monserrato 21, Rome



Maria Grazia Del Prete Gallery is pleased to present Nine Men’s Morris, first solo exhibition in Rome of the English artist Kit Craig (Oxford, 1980), curated

by Silvia Colaiacomo, in collaboration with Pericle Guaglianone and with the patronage of the British Council. On the occasion, the artist has created a new

corpus of works-studies on visual and physical materialization of language. As in a role-play game and being dominated by its own dynamics, communication

is based on limited combinations of mutually comprehensible concepts, or supposed so. Free form rationalist arrogance, Craig’s work explores the definition

of agreed meanings by decomposing primary shapes and creating elegant scenarios of pure, vainless logic.
