Friday March 15th, form 6pm, Société Interludio space for contemporary art is pleased to present – in the rooms of Piazza Vittorio – its new exhibition: Vie di Fuga.
With the aim of investigatin the various directions of contemporary painting, the painters Andrea Barzaghi (Monza, 1988), Sebastiano Impellizzeri (Catania, 1984) and Davide Mancini Zanchi (Urbino, 1986) were invited to participate.
Starting from aligned painterly formations, the intention was to document the direction each artist’s practice took, on the basis of several factors like places, techniques and themes.
And just like that, in this second exhibition, a generations of painters takes to extreme consequences their considerations and their research till – in certain cases – detachment from traditional supports (paper and canvas) and two-dimensional view to open up to painting in space. Developing ad-hoc works, artists have worked not only on the idea of dialoguing with each other but also on the identity of the exhibition space itself.
Vie di fuga therefore aims to evoke the direction artists take when they progressively or drastically move away form their starting point; but it also aims to be the binder between each artist’s thematical and theoretical embedding. Maps of forbidden roads, intertwined greeneries, floating bodies, thinking on escape routes – whether they are psychological or physical.
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.
