A arte Invernizzi, Milan
via D. Scarlatti 12
artist / participant
The A arte Invernizzi gallery will open on Tuesday 23 September 2014 a solo exhibition of the artist Grazia Varisco. The exhibition plan, specifically ideated by the artist, is conceived in relation to the spaces of the gallery and intends to more fully investigate the themes taken up by her during the last decade, making them hold a dialogue with a number of works created at the beginning of the 1980s.
Exhibited on the upper floor of the gallery are works that belong to the “Quadri comunicanti” and “Risonanze al tocco” cycles which in presenting themselves as intense perceptive entities, charged with energy, invite the observer to get involved in a moment of sensorial interaction that stimulates sight, touch and hearing.
This play of references and contrasts, reiterated and ironic, based on the use of the “folding“ or “bending” of the matter as the moment of opening towards the third dimension and as the instant of sensorial disorientation, can also be seen in the works of the “Gnomoni” series of the 1980s which are placed on the wall of the stairs, ideally uniting the spaces of the gallery.
The lower floor houses recent works in both cardboard and metal, exhibited for the first time, which in images repropose the experience of the alignment and perceptive awkwardness and unease of the variability of regular forms, as if the matter made up of a rectangular form were hung on a thread and moved by the wind. The other spaces of the gallery will exhibit some works by the artist that cover her creative career starting out from the end of the 1950s.
On the occasion of the exhibition a bilingual catalogue will be published with the reproductions of the works on show, an introductory essay by Francesca Pola, a poem by Carlo Invernizzi and bio-bibliographical notes.
