LIVELLI 3RD EDITION - 108 GRAPHIC SURGERY STEN LEX TELLAS ZEDZ


FROM 28 APRIL 2018 TO 27 MAY 2018 
GALLERIA VARSI 
Via di Grotta Pinta 38 00186 Rome, Italy

April 28th, 2018 Galleria Varsi presents the third edition of the “Livelli” silkscreen exhibition in collaboration with 56Fili. This year the exhibition focuses on the technical possibilities of silkscreen printing which make the artworks emerge in a unique way; this is done by using media in a non-traditional way, bending them to each artist’s needs.

A personal research has been carried out for all artists aimed at satisfying their different aesthetic needs, thus succeeding in obtaining original works that have been created directly during the silkscreen printing phase and not simply reproduced. For this edition, 56Fili and Galleria Varsi, have chosen to invite five of the most important international urban artists:

108 (IT), Graphic Surgery (NL), Sten & Lex (IT), Tellas (IT), Zedz (NL), who worked within a year in the screen printing laboratory. Arturo Amitrano, curator of the 56Fili project, has gone beyond the previous editions, investigating and encouraging artists to experiment on different media such as paper, textiles, plexiglass and lenticular film. 108– The artist has brought to silkscreen printing the same approach he uses in the creation of his other works.

By working on different media, such as masking, freehand drawing on gloss coated paper, spray on typographic screens, he was able to reproduce on silkscreen what is usually done on canvas. Most of his production is based on the creation of diptychs where the traces left by color on the matrix of the first work become the base for the construction of the second one, generating a formal and material bond between them.

Text by Michela D'Acquisto:
108’s black shapes are hard to compare to anything in the current world. Concise & irregular, they deviate not only from canonical representations, but also from geometrical rigor – the correspondences, instead, are to be found on the immaterial plane of the unconscious. Conceived as the visual manifestation of an inner process which aims to abolish rational thought, these new works diverge from his previous ones, subverting the proportion between irrational & non-irrational components. If in the previous works the dichotomy was less marked and more oriented towards rationality, represented by the perfection of the geometric shapes at times interrupted by colorful elements with an irregular perimeter, now it’s the irrationality of the dark stains prevailing on the colorful rational part, reduced to thin lines which enter the shadow and are almost absorbed by it. The artist adapts and alters the lexicon of geometry to depict what lies beyond the visible. In this case, giving space to transcendent impulses is an attempt to achieve freedom from the subordination to external reality, and in particular to reconcile one’s own duality and release its most instinctive part, at least in the sphere of the intangible. It’s a random and impulsive process which, like everything that concerns 108’s artistic practice, can be assimilated to an intensely intimate ritual. And it’s the natural outcome of this process that the black eventually prevails: after all, painting black is a way of painting plenitude and, at the same time, emptiness. Observing these black shapes, abstract yet organic, incredibly simple & hypnotically repetitive, is for me a modality of aniconic meditation. They hold and reveal a belonging to the earth and its primordial cults, aknowledge rooted in the underworld and, in their essentiality, they connect to the purest state of awareness.

Forme Uniche è fiera di annunciare Post-Tradition, progetto espositivo che mette a confronto e in dialogo le opere di Guido Bisagni - 108 (Alessandria, 1978) e Giulio Zanet (Colleretto Castelnuovo, 1984). La mostra, curata da Sara Cusaro e Marco Roberto Marelli, prende il via da una precisa volontà critica, dalla consapevolezza che noi oggi viviamo ormai nell'epoca della creatività diffusa, un'epoca nella quale il progresso tecnologico ha reso semplici e alla portata di tutti raffinati strumenti per conoscere e “fare arte”. Con una produzione estetica vicina ma distante, gli artisti presenti negli spazi di Villa Casati Stampa di Soncino fuggono da questo nostro odierno “paese dei balocchi”, dall'alienante eccesso di produzioni ripetitive e di bassa qualità che invadono le nostre giornate, riportando al centro il concetto stesso di vita, di storia e di opera d'arte. Realizzazioni, quelle presenti a Muggiò, che nascono da un’attenzione sensibile verso il presente che si basa su una conoscenza profonda delle radici culturali del passato, su una precisa volontà di superare il Post-moderno per creare una nuova cultura che vada al di là delle vecchie tradizioni per fondarne di nuove. Le opere di 108, fra i maggiori esponenti del Post-graffitismo in Italia, e quelle di Giulio Zanet, che propongono un'attenta ricerca che pone il medium della pittura astratta quale strumento per la riflessione sull'esistenza quotidiana e sui limiti della sua rappresentazione, emergono dal mare indefinito degli stimoli visivi, per analizzare, comprendere e mettere in discussione questo nostra età sovraffollata da contingenti prodotti estetici.


Con l’intenzione di promuovere sul territorio di Muggiò e della provincia di Monza e della Brianza le più attuali ricerche in ambito estetico e culturale, la mostra, patrocinata dal Comune di Muggiò, è accompagnata dalla realizzazione di un sito dedicato (https://posttradition.wordpress.com/) e da un evento collaterale di approfondimento che si terrà (a ingresso libero con tessera arci) dalle ore 21.00 di domenica 05 marzo presso Scuotivento in via Monte Grappa 4B a Monza.
