Société Interludio space for contemporary art is pleased to inaugurate its exhibition activity with the collective exhibition Fragile. Paolo Inverni (Savigliano,1977), Sophie Ko (Tbilisi, 1981) and Giulio Saverio Rossi (Massa, 1988) were invited to give life to the rooms of this new place.
La vitre du réel est si fragile qu’il suffit parfois d’y poser l’ongle pour la rayer.
Fragility, instability and unfinishedness are the subjects of this exhibition: a fil rouge runs through the chosen works and between the walls of the rooms, suggesting a range of changing realities on the basis of mutable points of view. The work of these artists responds to an artistic practice which is not blatantly “shouted”: the executional subtlety and the use of volatile materials such as earths, pigments, raw linen, glass, ashes bring out a common perception of a changing – and therefore precarious – reality. The subject matters and concepts behind each work are not left to the mercy of the outer world but, instead, kept in refined aesthetic forms, thus emphasizing their intimate yet not self-referential side. At the same time, though the exhibited works, a reflection on the relationship between man and his time emerges: the realities, incessantly revealing themselves, interact with ongoing infinity and an uninterrupted hic-et-nunc.
Société Interludio is a project developed and directed by the curator Stefania Margiacchi (1990) and the artist Paul de Flers (1988). A space for contemporary art, it is located in the main floor of an early-XX-century palace in Piazza Vittorio Veneto. The exhibitional spaces are strongly characterized by a venetian-style floor, suggesting an early use as a domestic home, now fully put to the service of visual arts. Entr’acte of other rooms, portion of space, Société Interludio aims to be a long artistic span that every operator and/or observer carves out of his daily life for attentive viewing.
