“Homeschooling” (parental education) is at the center of the performance and production by Angela Marzullo. The artist took some crucial texts of the twentieth century from authors such as Benjamin or Pasolini as well as issues related to feminism as a starting point of her videos in which her two daughters are involved as actresses and protagonists.
The publication presents a decade of Marzullo’s filmic production, highlighting the evocative value of the images and the texts used in the artist’s videos.
The publication is the first comprehensive review of Oskar Dawicki’s oeuvre. Trained as a painter, it was his practice as a performer and as a post-conceptualist with a singularly fatalistic slant that brought him into the public realm.
In a range of his works, in which the artist literally feels sorry and miserable for not being able to get through to the viewers in many different ways, Dawicki’s unveils the void of art. Self-reflection upon his status as an artist is interwoven with musings on the ethereal and feeble nature of one’s own identity. Humiliation, discomfort, confusion, complication – these ideas make up the foundation of his artistic imagination. For Dawicki, the fruitfulness of art is its most promising aspect.
Vitrine is a project organized by GAM museum in Turin. Beginning four years ago, Vitrine has as its primary objective the research in the field of contemporary art. The title of the 2015-2016 edition, Possibilità (Possibilities), refers to the transformations that take place during one’s life and their fluid and uncertain nature which is retraced in art.
The catalogue Vitrine documents the five exhibitions, held one after another from the 10th of February 2015 to the 17th of January 2016, by the five participating artists: Rä di Martino, Francesco Gennari, Francesco Barocco, Anna Franceschini and Luca Trevisani.
“As the moon orbits the earth it tries to pull everything toward it, the only thing the earth can’t hold on to is water. People can hold on to everything but time. The ocean moves up and down, it cleanses the rocks and sand. Time heals our wounds but it ages our bodies. There’s a beauty and a sadness in the moon, in time. There’s eternal return in the cycle of the tide, it defies time while time defines us. This show merges natural elements and artistic processes to highlight our relationship to time, the intrinsic lightness and darkness of aging, the gravitational pull of life, and the shifting spectrum of melancholy” – Sam Falls, presentation of the project, January 2015.
Madama Cucchi is an interactive catalogue accompanying the installation by Enzo Cucchi in the Veranda juvarriana at Palazzo Madama in Turin (5 November 2015 – 1 February 2016). It consists of a 70 cm x 100 cm map of Palazzo Madama designed by Cucchi and a cardboard cut-out, or rather, miniature replica of the works on display: three paintings, Per ora… basta, Si… siamo in Italia and Testa dura and a sculpture, Drone Dario. When placed on the map, this cut-out gives an idea of the installation of works in the veranda.
