NOWhere_by Giulio Cassanelli

MIRO Gallery is glad to present NOWHERE, a personal exposition by Giulio Cassanelli, curated by Giovanni Avolio and Maria Chiara Wang.

Giulio Cassanelli’s artistic research focuses on the combination of gesture, gravity, temperature and materials: metal objects of different shapes and sizes are embed, through a fusion process, on extruded polystyrene supports. The intentionality of the idea that wants to control the action fades into the imponderability and unpredictability of the reaction of the support. The sign, resulting from the performative action of the artist, marks the ‘here and now’. From this concept derives the title of the exhibition that does not want to be just the echo of the NOWHERE installation exhibited in the internal courtyard of MIRO Gallery, but  the symbol of the poetic philosophical principle of the space-time . In this way the instant is frozen and extended to infinity.

The exhibition project for MIRO Gallery represents the progressive evolution of the sign that characterizes the artistic production of Cassanelli. The rhythmic action, repeated with “rigor and discipline”, which distinguishes the Superfici series, becomes more casual and free in Curvature, where the multiplicity and seriality of the grooves of the previous studies is recomposed in a single track; a tribute to the spatialism of Lucio Fontana, that the Bolognese artist evolves into a “gravitational concept”.

During the opening it will be possible to admire also the photographic portraits made by the artist, where the sign is the smile. Through the light, Cassanelli highlights the expression of  mouth and teeth, unique elements that characterize each individual. For the occasion, in a temporary photographic room, everyone can have their picture taken by the artist.
