Vernissage: venerdì 1 luglio 2016 ore 18,30

EGG VISUAL ART, Livorno

L’ultima mostra che conclude la prima stagione delle attività di EGG è da considerarsi una sintesi dello spirito che sta alla base e muove il nostro spazio: l’idea d’ incontro ed interazione sia umana che artistica come progetto culturale. Le artiste invitate non si conoscevano tra di loro e non avevano mai esposto insieme. Utilizzano la pittura come mezzo espressivo ma con strade ed esiti diversi. Vivono in tre città diverse: Londra, Istanbul, Parigi.

Al nostro gruppo Egg sembra interessante e stimolante creare connessioni, portare nella nostra città, che soffre di autoreferenzialità, il lavoro di artisti che provengano da storie e luoghi diversi, ed in alcuni casi, scoprire vicinanze dove apparentemente sembrano non esistere. Nel caso di Sue, Aylin ed Ira abbiamo individuato nella ricerca di un ritmo pittorico nella costruzione del quadro (la ripetizione di alcuni gesti o figure), una possibile associazione nella loro pratica artistica.

LA MOSTRA SARÀ VISIBILE FINO AL 30 LUGLIO 2016

EGG VISUAL ART, Livorno

The latest EGG exhibition could be considered a summary of what our essence is: artistic and human interaction as a cultural project. We are inspired by artists coming from various places or experiences; while our city seems to be inward-looking, our concern is to show their works. Sue, Aylin and Ira live in London, Istanbul, Paris, they didn’t know each other nor worked together till now. Although their path and outcome is different, we identified in their artworks some plausible connection.

SUE KENNINGTON explores how colours could be used as a visual language. She portrays lines and shapes that recall local layouts, an abstract representation of absence/presence. The overlays and lights revoke her personal background, both her birthplace (the large city) and the place where she lives now (a small farm). The opposite environments (London and the Crete Senesi) are fundamental for her work development. Soft structures symbolize thoughts, rifts, breaks, caused by simple divisions, curves and straight lines.

The drawings from the series “She comes in colors” display a meshwork of countless bodies functioning in their mass as an abstract network to the viewer. Based on the concept of a “Utopian Body” Michel Foucault, AYLIN YAVUZ considers the line as an illustrated border. The process of formation and the engagement with the demarcation line is crucial for the work. The body boundary is used for connecting, for linking and for taking a further step toward an abstracted composition. While the body falls apart and becomes partly indefinable -in layers and movements- is now perceived as abstracted.

IRA VICARI tries to overstep the boundaries dictated by paintings. Her latest art works begin with a blank page, a sentence, a stain or a colour. Then she moves forward adding and erasing marks, like some sheet music, a sort of a time count. The same process is the basis of other art works.

THE EXHIBITION WILL BE HOSTED UNTIL JULY 30TH 2016.
