For its third showcase, Vino Vero presents a site-specific work by the Venetian artist Matilde Sambo, whose research explores the complicated relationship between the natural world and the human being, between instinct and rationality. An essential aspect of her artistic practice is the reflection of the concept of “the fragment", which is investigated on several levels: through sculpture, video and sound
Matilde Sambo's research generates apparently contradictory concepts that intersect on common points and then merge. The artist often uses extremely ductile and fragile organic materials to represent the importance of change and transformation as fundamental principles of the natural cycle; elements that she then puts into dialogue with materials that are mostly made of metal and linked to the sculptural tradition.
Disorientation and narratives of imaginary worlds are themes present in all her works, which are often presented as immersive environments in which all the senses are activated and stimulated.
Vetrina presents a series of "boxed exhibitions" curated by Mara Sartore for Vino Vero in collaboration with Lightbox. Every three months internationally renowned artists working on the theme of nature are invited to present their site-specific works in the wine club's window next to the bar.
The Vetrina project began on 25th September with the French artist Marie Denis, represented by the Galleria Alberta Pane Venezia - Paris, who created "Spathes" for Vetrina #1, an aluminum sculpture that takes inspiration from research on botany, made in collaboration with the Giovanardi textile company. In December, the artist hosted by Vino Vero Vetrina #2 was Elham M. Aghili with "Hybrids". Her artwork recalls an ideal garden inspired by Ulisse Aldrovandi's 16th-century "Orto dei Semplici" botanical garden at Bologna University.
The next editions will see new installations from the following creatives: Ignazio Mortellaro and Lilla Tabasso.
With the series of exhibitions Vetrina, artists are invited to reflect on the theme of nature, a key element in the philosophy of Vino Vero, and to create a site-specific installation capable of communicating with a context distinctive far from the usual exhibition spaces in the city of Venice.
