This side up: FRAGILE

Mucciaccia Contemporary is pleased to present This side up: FRAGILE, the solo exhibition dedicated to the artist Shen Shaomin (1956, Heilongjiang province, China).

On the occasion will be exhibited 22 works, recently produced, taken from the series Handle with Care, in which the artist reproduces the masterpieces of modern and contemporary art history covering them with a painted packaging of bubble wrap and scotch.

The exhibition, curated by Giulia Abate, will be inaugurated Wednesday 17th October 2018 from 6.30pm. The show will be accompanied by a trilingual catalogue edited by Carlo Cambi Editore with an unpublished interview of the curator to the artist.

The idea behind the origin of the Handle with Care series, comes from a visit by Shen Shaomin to a warehouse museum. At the sight of carefully packaged art masterpieces, the artist perceived the sense of authority and their power of cultural representation. Hence, the feeling of venerability towards these works, considered like the “classics” masterpiece of Western art history.

Among the works on display, one notices a particular reference to the great artist and major exponent of American Pop Art, Andy Warhol, who used to create his works following an industrial process. “Andy Warhol  – says Shaomin – is one of my favorite artists whose works are constant replication. I replicate his works in his way of replicating works. That’s a consumption of his consumerism.”

 


Shen Shaomin is well known especially for the series of sculptures that represent in a hyper-realistic way human and animal nature, this works of art wanted to reflect on the theme of the artificiality and the relationship between the real and the imaginary.

On the occasion of the exhibition, Mucciaccia Contemporary’s space, will be set-up with various works from the series dedicated to the reproduction of great masterpieces of modern and contemporary art. The works have the appearance, as if they were wrapped in protective plastic packaging with scotch. The set-up of the gallery’s spaces with Shaomin’s works will simulate an exhibition during the dismantling phase with packaged paintings ready to be shipped to another destination.

There are several exhibitions who Shen Shaomin has participated and his numerous works of art become part of important public and private collections. Among his recent personal exhibitions there are: Keep Upright (2017), held at Klein Sun Gallery, New York, Handle with Care (2015) in the same gallery, There is no problem held at Redtory Museum of Contemporary Art, Guangzhou (Cina). Among the group exhibitions there are: Capital@Art.International (2018), Ost-Stern, a Francoforte e Almost There (2017), Jorge B. Vargas Museum, UP Diliman, University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines. Shen Shaomin has also participated in numerous art fairs, among the most recent: Art Basel, Hong Kong: Encounters (2017), Busan Biennale, Busan, South Korea (2017 and 2015), Xinjiang Biennale, Urumqi, China (2014).

Marco Guglielmi Reimmortal

Marco Guglielmi Reimmortal è sound designer, visual artist e performer. La sua carriera inizia dedicandosi alla sintesi sonora, pionieristica in Italia negli anni Ottanta. La ricerca lo porta a presentare il progetto Sonicmandala: un approccio alchemico alla materia sonora atto a stimolare visioni. Il progetto riceve alla Sala Santa Rita e alla Factory del MACRO il patrocinio del Comune di Roma e di Zetema cultura.

Le sue grandi installazioni concettuali cominciano a imporsi sulla scena artistica internazionale: espone a Berlino, Barcellona, Basilea, Parigi, New York. Contemporaneamente la sua ricerca sperimentale sul suono evocativo lo conduce a collaborare con noti musicisti internazionali in progetti di jazz avantgard, come solista in ‘Mono+1’ e come duo con ‘DualUnitOrgasm’.

Nel 2017 la sua prima grande retrospettiva viene allestita nella Chiesa dell’Abbazia della Misericordia durante il finissage della 57° Biennale di Venezia.
All’inizio del 2018 inaugura al Castello di Marostica il nuovo progetto TSP (Trance Sonic Painting), un istallazione performativa in cui l’artista effettua una trasposizione del vettore sonoro alla bidimensionalità della tela. Nello stesso anno, la sua installazione ‘Albero Sonico Destrutturato’ diventa il simbolo di ‘Borghi of Italy – No (F)earthquake’, evento collaterale ufficiale della 16°Biennale Architettura a Venezia, ospitato  negli spazi  del Concilio Europeo dell’Arte ai Giardini della Biennale.

Le installazioni Marco Guglielmi Reimmortal sono caratterizzate dalla confluenza di tutti i media e da una forte attitudine sperimentale.
Il suono è la fonte principale della sua ispirazione, ed è integrato nella sua visione dell’universo come sistema di corpi sonori in risonanza.
Prima di essere un artista visivo, Marco è un sound designer: la profonda connessione tra scultura, suono e video rende uniche le sue opere, concepite come moduli multimediali che generano suoni e proiettano immagini in uno spazio vivibile che il pubblico può abitare. In quello spazio, lo spettatore vive l’esperienza di una profonda connessione con la natura, attraverso il linguaggio emozionale dello stupore e della meraviglia.

Marco Guglielmi ReImmortal is a performer and a visual artist deeply involved in sound research during the last thirty years. He is the author of many projects for theatre and contemporary dance, art exhibitions and avantgarde performances.
In the last decade Marco focuses on performative and visual arts, creating sculptures and installations marked by the confluence of all media and by a strong experimental attitude. He has now a leading role in the italian avantgarde scene.

Marco creates sculptures and installations marked by the confluence of all media and by a strong experimental attitude. Sound is the main source of Marco’s inspiration, and is fully integrated to vision. In 2013 he created SonicMandala as an alchemical approach to sound stimulating the vision through resonance by esaphonics: a technique developed by the artist himself to create a sonic bubble inside which the vision is generated.
Before being a visual artist, Marco was a sound designer and videomaker: so the deep integration between sculpture, sound and video, between mechanical and biological elements makes the originality and uniqueness of his artworks.

“I always conceive my artworks as fully-equipped multi-media modules generating sounds and projecting images in a livable space the audience can inhabit.”

Nicole Voltan – Mucciaccia Contemporary

About one year after the opening, Mucciaccia Contemporary gallery is pleased to dedicate a Focus On to the artist Nicole Voltan. Nicole Voltan was born in Mestre in 1984 and she graduated at Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and after she began her career as artist. During the entire her artistic production emerges the desire to focus the attention on issues that link art and science.

Starting from this node, Nicole Voltan will examine complex issues with a scientific methodology. The artistic practice of Nicole Voltan can be red as a route between different levels of understanding the nature. Along which art and science provide numerous and different representations of a knowledge that gradually increases and changes, to reach understanding. Nicole’s art shifts attention to a new sensibility towards the elements of the celestial nature linked to the memory of man and to do that she decides to weave her cosmos, capturing the shapes of the sky and the stars. Through the historical and mythological elements (embroidery, the use of silk) and the concept of universal Entanglement, for which everything in the universe is connected to others. Also the association to the spider as a symbol of the creation of the cosmos, Nicole Voltan unveils the dynamism and expansion of the universe, breaking that thin border between man and celestial space.

Mucciaccia Contemporary gallery, coherently with the artistic direction, which tends to work with young and emerging artists, has dedicated to Nicole Voltan the exhibition titled Piano Cielo / Piano Terra which is born from a site-specific project entirely conceived by Nicole Voltan and curated by Gianluca Marziani . The 34 works of arts created by the artist for the gallery spaces are sculptures, paintings, site-specific installations and they express her multidisciplinary creativity. Despite the young age she is able to reflect on philosophically complex themes for theoretical issues and creative processes.

The artistic story of Nicole Votan is in continuous evolution, as evidenced by her last performance Fields of Attractions about the themes of separation and the fear of detachment. During the performance held at the IQOS Embassy in Rome, the artist wore a black dress, covered with hundreds of small round magnets, and needles were placed on this surface. With this dress she wandered on the notes of electronic music composed by Emptyset, in search of a physical contact with the public. All the actions performed during the performance wanted to reveal the rules of attraction and repulsion through a series of magnetic and ritual gestures, as a paradigm of the emotional sensations that accompany the moods of the emotional connection.

A circa un anno dall’apertura, la galleria Mucciaccia Contemporary è lieta di dedicare un Focus On all’artista Nicole Voltan. Nicole Voltan è nata a Mestre nel 1984 e dopo essersi laureata presso l’Accademia di belle Arti di Venezia inizia la sua carriera da artista autodidatta. Sin dalla sua prima produzione artistica emerge il desiderio di focalizzare l’attenzione su tematiche che legano l’arte alla scienza.

A partire da questo nodo Nicole Voltan sviscera tematiche complesse con una metodologia scientifica. La pratica artistica di Nicole Voltan può essere letta come un cammino tra diversi livelli di comprensione della natura, lungo il quale arte e scienza non fanno altro che fornire tante e diverse rappresentazioni di una conoscenza che man mano si amplia e si modifica per giungere alla comprensione. L’arte di Nicole sposta l’attenzione su una nuova sensibilità verso gli elementi della natura celeste legati alla memoria dell’uomo e per farlo decide di tessere il suo cosmo, catturando le forme del cielo e delle stelle. Attraverso elementi desunti dalla storia e dalla mitologia (il ricamo, l’utilizzo della seta), dal concetto di Entanglement universale, per il quale ogni cosa nell’universo è collegato ad altri e l’associazione al ragno come simbolo della creazione del cosmo, Nicole Voltan svela il dinamismo e l’espansione dell’universo, rompendo quel sottile confine tra l’uomo e lo spazio celeste.

La galleria Mucciaccia Contemporary, coerentemente con la direzione artistica, che tende a lavorare e valorizzare artisti giovani ed emergenti ha dedicato a Nicole Voltan la mostra Piano Cielo / Piano Terra nata da un progetto site-specific interamente ideato da Nicole Voltan e curato da Gianluca Marziani. L’artista ha creato 34 opere che hanno mostrato una complessità teorica rara e multidisciplinare (scultura, pittura, installazione site-specifc) dimostrando la sua capacità di toccare temi filosoficamente complessi per istanze teoriche e processi creativi.

La vicenda artistica di Nicole Votan è in una continua evoluzione, come lo dimostra la sua ultima performance Fields of Attractions sul tema della separazione e la paura del distacco. Durante la performance tenutasi presso l’IQOS Embassy di Roma, l’artista ha indossato un abito nero ricoperto da centinaia di piccoli magneti rotondi, sulla cui superficie sono adagiati degli aghi sottili. Con questo abito lei ha vagato sulle note della band elettronica Emptyset, alla ricerca di un contatto fisico con i fruitori. Tutte le azione eseguite durante la performance  hanno voluto rivelare le regole dell’attrazione e della repulsione attraverso una serie di gesti magnetici e rituali, a paradigma delle sensazioni emotive che accompagnano gli stati d’animo del legame affettivo.

Artrooms Fair opens its doors in Korea

After London and Rome, the Artrooms Fairs open a new edition in Seoul, South Korea, from the 26th to the 28th of October 2018. The fair will be organised in collaboration with IACO Korea and will take place at the Riviera Hotel, in the very famous area of the Gangnam District.
What makes this fair so interesting is the diversity of the artists and their work. Away from the daunting walls of the wh
ite cube ideology of the gallery space, both visitors and artists feel more comfortable in engaging with one another, which enables artists to not only sell their work but to share their vision and practice in a very distinctive way.
Artists go through a very hard selection process and each year they face a different Selection Committee, whose members are experts of the Industry, comprising some of the most relevant names in the art world. These have included in the past editions Sotheby’s S2 Gallery Director Fru Tholstrup, Palazzo Strozzi’s Director Arturo Galansino, Star-Architect Marco Piva, Christies’ Victoria Wolcough and Tabish Khan from The Londonist, just to name a few.
Less than 100 out of approx. 2000 artists pass the selections, turning the Artrooms Fair into an hunting ground for art galleries, curators, and collectors to interact in an intimate setting and discover new trends and unrepresented talented artists.

Since this year, the Organisers have been launching a new Gallery Affiliation Programme offering art galleries the opportunity to liaise to a new network and scout for artists; among new affiliated Contini Contemporary, Mucciaccia Contemporary, Ransom Art and Bel Air Fine Art, 11[HellHeaven] Art Gallery, Ufofabrik, Zari Gallery. For the new editions, Artrooms Fairs will also open to Cultural Partners, in volving Museums and Foundations to give artists new exciting opportunities. The fair is unique in its kind: “One room at no cost to the artist”.
It is set on 4-star luxury hotels where every room is turned into an exhibition space, and it is also the only fair inviting independent artists to exhibit and sell their works without paying a fee. The venues are the Meliá White House in London, The Church Palace in Rome and the Riviera Hotel in Seoul.

The Artrooms Fairs offer an extraordinary platform to support and nurture the artist’s career and an extensive programme to all visitors, with workshops, interviews such as “In bed with the artists”, the Focus on Section dedicated to a Country, Art Projects and installations, Sculpture Park and Video Art.

The Group Show at Mucciaccia Contemporary

THE GROUP SHOW
Francesco Cervelli, Mauro Di Silvestre, Brigita Huemer,
Daniel Jouseff, Francesca Matarazzo, Lorenzo Modica, Angelica Romeo,
Maurizio Savini, Nicole Voltan

 

Mucciaccia Contemporary is pleased to present The Group Show, the exhibition that show the works of the artists who collaborated with the gallery, from the moment of its opening. The gallery space has been set up to restate a critical journey that will accompany the visitor on a memorable path that will take place in the entire gallery space.
In this exhibition there are several artistic researches connected: the complex painting of Francesco Cervelli and Mauro Di Silvestre, the particular works by Daniel Jouseff, Lorenzo Modica, Maurizio Savini and Nicole Voltan. Until the harmonious plexiglass by Birigita Huemer which dialogue with the material and graphic paintings by Angelica Romeo and Francesca Matarazzo.
The exhibition which celebrate the opening of the gallery is Nel fondo del tempo, it was dedicated to Francesco Cervelli and Mauro Di Silvestre, who both were confronted whit the themes of the flow of the time and human memory. Francesco Cervelli has a conceptual approach and his works there are citations taken from the collective history in order to capture the viewer’s attention to bring it back to the most representative places of the history of art. Otherwise, Mauro Di Silvestre’s works are the result of a pictorial language which has source of inspiration in the personal memory: in his works we can see objects, scenes of life that overlap with decorative patterns.
The artistic research of Nicole Voltan, who was the protagonist of the site-specific exhibition entitled Piano CIELO / Piano TERRA, develops following different artistic mediums like fiber art, painting and sculpture. Each works conceal a theoretical complexity that can be read as a journey between different levels of understanding the nature, along which art and science provide different representations of a knowledge that expands and changes, with the aim of understand the man in its complexity.
Among the young emerging artists appears the work of Lorenzo Modica, who explores themes such as images, languages, the chance and the relationship with the architectural space. On this occasion the work exposed was made after an artistic residency held in 2015 in Belgrade.
In the show there is also the artist Maurizio Savini, well known for his creations made with chewing gum and with its works of art give a critical interpretation of the contemporary society.
The exhibition continues with the works of Francesca Matarazzo, which were exhibited at the show called Ipergrafie. Matarazzo’s works are characterized by a material transcription of graphic signs that derive from a compositional process about a reflection on the themes of time, the unconscious and the identity.
For the artist Daniel Jouseff are exposed works born from the FLAGS series, which reflect on the iconography of the flag as a symbol of identity and cultural belonging. The “borderline” artist, born in Sweden but of Palestinian origin, focuses his artistic production on identity research, and associating the irrational and the rational, the belonging to a place and the search for it.
At the end of the exhibition are exposed the works of the two artists, Brigita Huemer and Angelica Romeo, who were recently protagonists of the retrospective titled EMOTIVA, in which both highlighted the analysis of the ego and the complexity of the human being and the his emotions. The geometric and monochromatic painting on plexiglass by Brigita Huemer tending to capture the fluid material through the pictorial gesture, enters into a dialogue with the gestural painting of Angelica Romeo.

Al Boscolo Exedra Roma “Gods” la nuova mostra personale di Andrea Cagnetti in arte Akelo

Palazzo Naiadi – The Dedica Anthology Hotels e Le Dame Art Gallery, sono lieti di annunciare “Gods” (Dei) la nuova mostra di Andrea Cagnetti in arte Akelo, che avra’ luogo dal 19 aprile al 4 luglio nella splendida Hall del lussuoso hotel.

Andrea Cagnetti – in arte, Akelo – è un’anima antica, un uomo del Rinascimento, che vive nel 21esimo secolo, coltivando una grande passione: quella di creare gioielli e sculture, che coniugano la sua creatività alla perfetta padronanza delle tecniche di oreficeria e metallurgia, risalenti a oltre 3.000 anni fa.

I lavori di Andrea Cagnetti si basano su miti, leggende e simboli tratti da un repertorio ancestrale ed elaborati attraverso un suo personale linguaggio criptico, che attinge al sapere alchemico, frutto dei suoi approfonditi studi sui testi antichi.
Dal 2010, l’artista realizza la scultura per il premio “Robert Besson Prize” per la Mostra del Cinema di Venezia. Tra I registi premiati: Maha mat-Saleh Haroun; Jean-Pierre e Luc Dardenne; Ken Loach; Amos Gitai; e Carlo Verdone.
I suoi lavori sono presenti in collezioni permanenti e musei quali il Museum of Art and Archaeology in Missouri e il Fine Arts Museum di Boston e il Museo di Newark. Tra le sue ultime mostre: “Akelo’s Treasures. An Exhibition Celebrating Twenty-Five Years of a Roman Master Goldsmith” presso la famosa gioielleria Bentley & Skinner di Londra.
Come afferma in un testo critico, Giandomenico Spinola (Responsabile del Dipatimento di Archeologia dei Musei Vaticani) “Andrea Cagnetti parte da un artigianato antico come la sua terra, quello della tecnica orafa, per poi evolvere in forme artistiche le sue opere. Su questa linea ha realizzato le sue prime creazioni, tanto vicine ai capolavori dell’oreficeria etrusca da mettere talvolta in imbarazzo molti esperti. D qui, ha dato origine a lavori di notevole pregio in diverse direzioni: alcuni lavori rappresentano la prosecuzione della sua rima produzione orafa, altri se ne distaccano, ma quel che emerge in ogni sua opera, sempre e comunque, è una grandissima capacità tecnica e un’inventiva brillantemente espressa. In tutti i suoi lavori – anche in quelli in scala maggiore – non rinuncia mai alla cura del dettaglio, anche infinitesimale, proprio come nella migliore tradizione orafa”

“Gods”, mostra personale di Akelo (alias Andrea Cagnetti)
