Comunicato stampa

The exhibition is conceived as a journey in stages spanning across three decades of Balka’s artistic production, from works created in the 90s to those made specifically for the gallery’s venues. The title of the show, "In Bezug auf die Zeit", in German, is by no chance based on the definition of acceleration in physics, which is the increment of velocity in relation to a time interval. The artist extrapolates only the second part of the definition, which we can translate as “in relation to time”

Through the exhibition’s itinerary we can recognize two fundamental moments in Balka’s research: the transition from figurative to abstract, which characterizes the group of works that will be presented in the gallery’s main exhibition space in via Stradella 7, and the passage from material to gesture which captivates the works presented between the spaces in via Stradella 1 and 4, in a continuos discovery of references.
