11.02.2023 – 26.03.2023
The gallery Société Interludio is pleased to open the new exhibition year with Incidente Domestico, our new collective exhibition featuring Giuseppe Abate (Bari, 1987), Bea Bonafini (Bonn, 1990) and Ottavia Plazza = (Alessandria, 1992), realised in collaboration with Renata Fabbri arte contemporanea (Milan) and Michela Rizzo gallery (Venice).
A generation of artists born between the end of the 80s and the beginning of the 90s who, through the works on display, reflect on the work of art / exhibition space interaction; multimedia artists who, through the works on display, explore themes such as domestic environments, the intimate and fragile dimension of things with a spirit at times ironic, sometimes irreverent and delicate as well.
The extensive cultural and symbolic references are summarized in artworks that every so often are almost stylized or grotesque, deliberately childish. In this context, the space becomes a display but also a benchmark of reflection, engaging a direct dialogue with the very own identity of the place: the gallery, in its physical dimension, becomes the host of the invited artists and their works. The space is therefore an artistic crevice opening up in everyday life, where the canonical space-time relationship is marked by what is on display.
Each work temporarily becomes part of the environment not only as an aesthetic object in the space but as an integral part of it and of its vitality. The gallery is transformed into a mimesis referring in a suggested way to the domestic environment (from which it derives) and becomes itself art. The featured works give the gallery environment a new life, the possibility of being home again.
