For the exhibition “Tribal Subconscious”, the embryonic concept comes from a reflection on sleep, a dream activity par excellence, our mind produces dreams every time we fall asleep, even if we don't always remember them. Silvia starts from her personal experience, from the analysis and observation of what happens in the activity of her "sleep": a primary perception of beautiful lights and colors, up to stories full of details, passing through tormented nightmares that disturb the quiet and leave her awake. Then why not to create amulets or magical objects that help the sleep to come and thus facilitate the flow of dreams? And for a creative and sensitive mind and personality like Silvia's, what better way than to "catch"the unconscious that works during the night, freeze the frames of its work, freeze the images it produces and fix them in a artwork?  And this is where the real magic happens: Silvia, as in a continuous flow, begins to work on this new project and the works arrive straight away. Symbols, colors, images and emotional perceptions come to life through gesture and matter, with a rhythm dictated by total freedom of expression in all processes.

March 7, 2020 -  December, 22 2020

When at first you see the works of Arianna Matta, the reaction is anything but rational. Despite the refined painting and the studied balance of the technique, you are kidnapped by the emotion without boundaries, you are immediately "impressed" by the involvement that you try to interact with the gaze, the dialogue that is established and the works, as a response, offer you the opportunity to be free with your thoughts and feelings.

BANKERI | Nothing but Flowers

18 September 2019 - January 31, 2020

As one can deduce, this is an exhibition which speaks of flowers, despite a certain ironic approach, right from the title. On display new works produced by Bankeri for the exhibition and a foray from the past, in which the subject in question was already present. The common paradigm is characterized by the treatment of the forms and the mastery of the matter brought to a level of maturity and mastery such as to allow the artist to have fun articulating between papers and canvases, colors from the most different tones to fluorescent, serigraphy and overlapping at multiple levels of physical and mental elements, in a continuous contamination.

EVITA ANDUJAR - ANDREA PINCHI Dell'Amore, dei miti e dei miti personali

February 12th to June 7th, 2019

The myth of Cupid and Psyche is one of the most beautiful love stories ever. It was the Latin writer Apuleio to recount it in his "The Golden Ass" in the 2nd century AD. The metaphor of the eternal dichotomy between rationality and instinct, between heart and mind, has inspired the greatest writers, poets and artists. It is impossible not to think of one of the most sublime achievements in the history of art: the sculpture Amore e Psiche by Antonio Canova. And it is from here that the common thread of Evita Andújar and Andrea Pinchi's double solo show unfolds on 12 February at Relais Rione Ponte.

In Atlas, Ego Imago Mundi is the ego of the artist, Luca Di Luzio, and his new human atlas, where a new relationship between the body and the world is established. Atlas puts the man in the position of redefining his place in space, not adapting to it, but shaping it in his own image. Land surface area with lakes and islands, mountains, rivers and boundaries are generated by the artis through the spontaneity of a resolute and docile gesture. The points of Atlas’ maps are the sign of the impression of the artist's body on paper. The Atlas project by Luca Di Luzio started simultaneously with "Magnetic Declination", curatorial proposal of White Noise Gallery for Set-Up Fair 2016.

Amalia di Lanno “The reinventing of reality by Keziat doesn’t claim likelihood, rather it offers fantastic shelters to ponder over daily life often too arid and schizophrenic.” Emanuela De Notariis Curator: Barbara Pavan
