press release

OPENING: Thursday April 12, 2007

A principle of insatiable contamination has guided the creative strategy employed for FROM THE, VAULT, a contemporary group show designed to reveal, by opening Galleria Pack’s vaults, original, and never-before-seen artwork, cultural inclinations and young artists exploring different creative routes., An art gallery is not simply an exhibition space for pedagogical appointments during which more or, less-informed spectators, critics, expert and up-and-coming curators, curious students, illuminated, investors and collectors gather and meet in search of the latest novelty. An art gallery is also a production, center for works that will be hung on its own walls, as well as others conceived for fairs, designed for, museum events, for public spaces, created for individual “on the road” appearances and then successively, gathered together and catalogued with great care and organization in the gallery’s storerooms., All this productive activity creates a considerable archive, one that FROM THE VAULT aims to unveil, as an opportunity for contemplative crisscrossing that fosters encounters, exchange and intermingling.,

FROM THE VAULT is a case of contaminated art following the theme of its commissioner, Galleria, Pack, the unsealed workshop of a sole language, open to different interpretations of the contemporary.,

Work by the artists FROM THE VAULT includes painting, installations, video, drawings and photography:, Matteo Basilè – is present with a video that anticipates his upcoming solo show in the gallery., Maurizio Borzì – an artist from Turin, will show the installation “Condominio.”, Alberto Di Fabio – is presenting the installation “Minerali rossi,” and the five works “ecologica-ironica.”, Franko B – will appear virtually, seated at a table in “Seated with the Artist.”, Robert Gligorov – will show a series of lambdas on d-bond, “Disaster Theory,” “Fish Eye,” and “Artist.”, Bartolomeo Migliore – will paint words in the large-format paintings “Songs” and “Sonics.”, Francis Naranjo – a series of photographs from this Spanish artist will be on display., Dario Nero – will unveil a series of paintings., Alfred Rens – will present his self-portraits, digitally assembled and mounted on double Plexiglas., Aldo Runfola – will elaborate his conceptuality through photography., Bearni Searle – An internationally recognized South African artist will show her “looking back” cycle., Shai Zurim – A young Israeli artist will be exhibiting a series of drawings.,

The heterogeneity of FROM THE VAULT makes it possible to interpret the exhibition space, flexing, to support the different linguistic natures of the possible artworks on exhibit. It amounts to an experimental, space that unites artists distinguished by genre, generation and inclination; an encounter between, dissonant expressive forms through which the recognition of a complementary diversity is rewarded.,

FROM THE VAULT is an experiment ranging from the storeroom to the walls of Galleria Pack, presenting, a proactive and unexpected immersion in the sampling of contemporary art.
