  • Maurizio Donzelli  (+)

    Biography : Maurizio Donzelli was born in 1958 in Brescia, where he lives and works. The poetical elements in Donzelli’s work have always focused on some key points of the artistic process: drawing, image revelation, the inesacapableness of the observer in defining the work, relationship between light and color. The drawing practice is the intellectual and technical tool with which Donzelli compares artistic and philosophical reflection with the themes of image immateriality and temporariness, with its quality as an analogy, or, more in general, of transfiguration and transformation. With regards to drawing, mention must be made of the performances of his Macchina dei disegni which between 1999 and 2004 were hosted in various Italian cities, in Germany, and in the United States; the performance titled Il contorno delle cose at GAMeC in Bergamo, 2003; the show titled La natura delle cose curated by Francesco Poli at the gallery Caterina Tognon in Venice, 2009. Another tool to which Donzelli entrusts a conceptual role is the mirror (in fact, Mirror is the title of many of his works), intended as a lens of observation, alteration, and redefinition of perception in a constant temporal dynamic. In the artist’s vision, the mirror is also a metaphor tied to interpreting the world and our relationship with images. Maurizio Donzelli has shown his Mirror on various occasions, including the exhibition at the Galleria Massimo Minini in 2007, and the shows curated by Axel Vervoordt at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice: In-Finitum in 2009 and TRA - Edge of Becoming in 2011, where the artist presented an important site-specific work: Aleph. In 2012 Donzelli named his solo show, curated by Andrea Viliani, Metamorfosi, held at Palazzo Fortuny in Venice. For the event, he began to explore two equally autonomous though related fields. The first concerns the large wool and silk rugs knitted in Nepal, titled Giardini, which transfer the drawing theme into a horizontal dimension and develop

    Detailed Description : His work has been reflecting on the status of the images from a conceptual perspective. He primarily uses photography as his medium, but also uses other languages with the aspects of scientific methodologies. His projects investigate on the most existential themes. His work is either an investigation on violent actions or fragile and temporary installations, experiments, enigmatic drawings that seem to dig deeply into the field of experience.

    Detailed Description : Stampone’s artistic quest represents the synthesis and formalisation of the concept encapsulated by the term Global Education. His artistic output ranges from interactive multimedia installations to monumental and participatory public art projects. Simultaneously, his work makes reference to the “reasons for doing” by dwelling on the aesthetic gratification that comes from drawing with a Bic pen. Stampone’s work is a “formal experience”. If the form is closed and crystallised, experience of the form creates a discussion on the artist’s part within a community from which he requires interaction and participation. The various mediums adopted serve to intensify the urgency of the circumstances. For Stampone, the artist must return to placing ethical commitment before aesthetics, political activism in the everyday, and an urgent need to construct connective structures and platforms that are cognitive, tactile and transfiguring. His approach is nuanced and methodical, inviting the public to reflect on fundamental issues like immigration, access to water resources or war.

  • Arthur Duff  (+)

    Biography : Arthur Duff was born in Wiesbaden in 1973. After living in the United States, his parent’s home, in Korea, Germany and Japan, he established in Italy. He lives and works in Vicenza. From the end of the Nineties he is present in the Italian and international contemporary art scene as a visual artist. In 2010 he is the winner of the 2% premium at the MACRO in Rome with Rope Project in which he will mark the elevators and the transition area between the parking and the new foyer. In recent years he has created specific works for several urban contexts including: Spin series in the monumental complex of Santo Spirito in Sassia in Rome (2010); Borrowing You in Castelfranco Veneto (2008) and on the occasion of the show Transparency (Arthur Duff, Jenny Holzer, Julian Opie, Jaume Plensa, Stephan Reusse, Ulla Rauter) Public Art in Prague for the European Presidency of the Czech Republic (2009). He has also participated in several group shows including Proportio, Palazzo Fortuny, Venice (2015); Bag, Bocconi Art Gallery, Bocconi University, Milan (2014); La Grande Magia. Selected Works from the Collections UniCredit, MAMbo, Bologna (2014-13); Temi e variazioni, Scrittura e Spazio at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice (2011); La parola nell'arte. Ricerche d'avanguardia nel 900. Dal Futurismo ad oggi attraverso le Collezioni del Mart, Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto (2007); XIV Rome Quadriennale, National Gallery of Modern Art, Rome (2004).

    Detailed Description : Light as means of verbal information and flow of cognitive energy, for years is at the heart of the artist’s creative thinking. Duff’s light is not one of an atmospheric or exterior vibration, but a light conceived as the complex space of a continuous and shifting vital process occurring between cosmic interstellar regions, telluric depths and implied digital virtual realities. In the laser projections, based on the combination of artificial light and spatialized language, as in the knotted stratifications of implied stellar fragments, light is for Duff the metaphoric possibility prior to a transit, a voyage, in the world of information as a potentially infinite physical and dynamic material. Indeed Duff’s work has always concentrated on the creation of complex spaces of experience, both visual and physical, that use laser projection or the pulsation of images (either luminous or obtained through patterns and embroidery) to bring forth ever surprising configurations, dialoguing with the spatial and cognitive coordinates of a present henceforth almost entirely arisen from experiences of digital and virtual reality.

  • Paolo Grassino  (+)

    Biography : Paolo Grassino (Turin, Italy, 1967). With his work offers a thought on the drift of the modern society, suspended on the edge between natural and artificial. His work is moreover a research that regains the fullest sense of manual skill: Grassino works with synthetic rubber and polystyrene but also with more traditional materials like wax and solid concrete. With a slow and patient weaving work the artist brings his work to a spectacular level. In 2011 he was invited at The 4th Moscow Biennale and in the same year he has presented the environmental sculpture Madre at MACRO, Rome’s Museum of Contemporary Art. In 2010 the Castello di Rivalta in Tourin hosted an antological exhibition with his last 10 years of works, and in 2008 the Musée d’Art Moderne de Saint-Étienne have presented a big solo show (2008). Among his most recent exhibitions in museums and public spaces it is worth mentioning Gran Torino, Frost Art Museum, Miami (2011), Senza Rete, Loft Project ETAGI, Saint Petersburg (2011), Essential Experience, RISO - Palermo Museum of Contemporary Art (2009).

    Detailed Description : Paolo Grassino (Turin, Italy, 1967). With his work offers a thought on the drift of the modern society, suspended on the edge between natural and artificial. His work is moreover a research that regains the fullest sense of manual skill: Grassino works with synthetic rubber and polystyrene but also with more traditional materials like wax and solid concrete. With a slow and patient weaving work the artist brings his work to a spectacular level.

  • Monika Grzymala  (+)

    Biography : Monika Grzymala was born in Zabrze, Poland, in 1970. She lives and works in Berlin, German. Between 1990 and 1994 she partecipated at professional training in stone sculpting and restoration, from 1994 until 2001 she attended Visual Art studies at Universities in Karlsruhe, Kassel and Hamburg, Germany.
 Grzymala has received several awards and grants, and her work has been exhibited in various galleries and institutions around the world: the Reykjavik Art Museum (2016 and 2014); the Morgan Library & Museum in New York (2013); the 18th Biennale of Sydney (2012); the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2010); the Tokyo Art Museum (2010); the Drawing Room in London (2009); the Drawing Center in New York (2006).

    Detailed Description : The main theme of Grzymala’s work is the line and drawing in three-dimensional space. In her installations, the artist uses various materials: adhesive tape, paper, wire, and even living trees. The creations are always adapted to the exhibition site, connecting different visible and non-visible aspects, in short, using structures of tape and site-specific drawings to transform the space into a new cosmos. The sculptural interventions seem to twist and reconfigure rectilinear space, endowing it with a new and vibrant, organic and expressive potential, much as a dancer might transform the space through which she moves. The tangled lines that Grzymala stretches through her installations gather and disperse, curve around, rise and fall. We follow the gathering movement not only with our eyes but with our own bodies as we walk through the exhibition. Each ephemeral installation is described by the kilometres of tape that make visible the physical and mental process of creation. The spatial drawings are delicate, transient, and almost ethereal, but also balanced out by a feeling of persistent sense, materiality, and gesture.

  • Landon Metz  (+)

    Biography : Born in Phoenix, Arizona in 1985, Metz has lived in Brooklyn since 2009. A young artist of international repute, he has exhibited around the world, from Denmark to New York and from Chicago to LA. In 2014 he was selected as artist in residence at ADN Collection in Bolzano. Landon Metz draws backgrounds on blank canvas, then he fills them with color as Wolfgang Laib fills his sculptures with milk. He moves the color until the desired shape is completed. His paintings occupy the space, such as that of Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler, his work shapes the space as the work of Daniel Buren and Michael Asher, but while they had an ideological and political approach, Landon takes a poetic and pictorial attitude. The space is altered, yet it is decorated and refined. His medium of expression is painting, his goal to make paintings about painting: an inclusive form of it, which relies on an extremely meticulous process to accommodate the opportunities of chance. A conceptual approach, for a lyrical, sensual result. His works have been presented for the first time in Italy on January 2016 with a double solo show at the galleries of Francesca Minini, Milan, and Massimo Minini, Brescia. His work has been exhibited in several solo shows: Yet to be titled, James Fuentes, New York (2016); Massimo Minini, Brescia, Italy (2016); Francesca Minini, Milano (2016); oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, Andersen's, Copenhagen (2015); Landon Metz, James Fuentes, New York (2015); Plose, ADN Collection, Bolzano, Italy (2014); Michael Jackson Penthouse, Retrospective, Hudson, New York (2014); Varying Degrees of Absurdity, Art Los Angeles Contemporary, TORRI, Los Angeles (2013); Still, TORRI, Paris (2012); Something To Dance To, Preteen Gallery, Mexico City (2011).

  • Marco Neri  (+)

    Biography : Marco Neri was born in Forlì, Italy, in 1968. He is an artist who now lives and works in Torriana, Rimini. He first graduated from the Art Institute in Forlì, and then from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna in 1992. He participated in numerous exhibitions within and beyond Italy, including: Futurama, Centro per l'Arte Contemporanea L.Pecci, Prato (2000); Figuration, Rupertinum Museum, Salzburg, and at Museion in Bolzano (1999/2000); Pittura, Castello di Rivara, Turin (1997). In 2001, he held a solo exhibition with A. Salvino at the Spazio Aperto della Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Bologna, and in the same year, invited by Harald Szeeman, he participated in the 49th Edition of the Biennale in Venice: Platea dell'Umanità.

    Detailed Description : From the very beginning of his career, the artist's attitude has been distinctly marked by the recovery of painting. His artistic investigations are rooted in Italian paintings. Such themes are evident in works by artists such as Sironi, Morandi, and Virgilio Guidi. Apart from the media Neri chooses to work with, his artworks are made up of immediately recognizable geometrical lines and volumes; primary and monolithic elementary units that determine recurring elements are organized into visual structures to turn back in his pictorial periods.

  • Luigi Presicce  (+)

    Biography : Luigi Presicce was born in Porto Cesareo, Lecce in 1976. He lives and works in Florence and Porto Cesareo. He attended the Fine Arts Academy in Lecce, but his work has been decisively influenced by his independent studies. In 2007 he attended the Advanced Course in Visual Arts (CSAV) at the Antonio Ratti Foundation in Como under the direction of the American artist Joan Jonas. In 2008, as part of the Artist in Residence initiative, he took part in the workshop at Viafarini in Milan with the American artist Kim Jones. In Milan in 2008 he founded (with Luca Francesconi and Valentina Suma) the magazine Brownmagazine followed by the Brown Project Space, for which he acts as curator. In 2011 with Giusy Checola and Salvatore Baldi he started running “Archiviazioni” (exercises of investigations and discussion on the contemporary South) in Lecce. In 2012 he took part in the Artists in Residence program at MACRO, Rome. With Luigi Negro, Emilio Fantin, Giancarlo Norese and Cesare Pietroiusti he is involved in the Lu Cafausu project, which has been invited by AND AND AND at dOCUMENTA13, Kassel. He performed at Fondazione Claudio Buziol, Venice (2010); Performance Festival Thessaloniki Biennale 3, Greece (2011); Festival Reims Scènes d’Europe, Frac Champagne-Ardenne, France (2011); Màntica Festival, Cesena (2011); MADRE, Nea- ples (2012); We Folk - Drodesera Festival, Centrale Fies, Dro (2012); 20 Jahre Werkraum Warteck PP Festival, Basel (2013); Art City Bologna 2013, Bologna (2013); CastelloInMovimento, Castello di Fosdinovo, Massa Carrara (2013); ARTDATE 2014, Bergamo (2014); Il teatro dei luoghi Fest, Lecce (2014); Kunsthalle Osnabruck, Germany (2015).

    Detailed Description : Luigi Presicce’s work is characterized by a very complex symbolism that puts together religion, freemasonry, medieval iconography, with a clear reference to popular culture denoting a strong bond with the Salento, his native land located in Puglia. The artist creates performances collecting information on a range of topics that become a rich and complex stratification. From this place in the memory and under the solicitation of a place, a character or a story, arise a series of images that combine and emerge compulsively, giving birth to what will constitute then a narrative stage made of symbols and allegorical figures absorbed over time.

  • Bernardì Roig  (+)

    Biography : Bernardí Roig was born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, in 1965. He lives and works between Madrid and Binissalem, Mallorca, Spain. Roig won the XXXVII Premio di Arte Contemporanea Fondazione Principessa Grace, Monaco (2003); official Prize of XXI Biennial of Alexandria, Egipt (2002); the Special Prize Pilar Juncosa e Sotheby’s, Pilar & Joan Miró Foundation, Maiorca (1997). Roig has exhibited his works within and beyond Spain, at: Museo Lázaro Galdiano, Madrid (2013); MAM Mario Mauroner Contemporary, Vienna (2013); Halle am Wasser, Berlin (2013); Galerie Bernd Kluser, Munich (2012); and 53^ Venice Biennale, Venice (2009). The artist also participated in a variety of group shows at: Real Giardino Botanico, Madrid (2012/2013); Fondazione Galleria San Fedele, Milan (2012/2013); Museo de arte Ponce, San Juan, Porto Rico (2012/2013); and Palais de Beaux Arts, Brussels (2010/2011). He exhibited in numerous museums and istitutions such as la Galleria d’Arte Moderna di Torino; Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró, Palma di Maiorca, Science Museum, London e United Nations Office, ONU, Geneva.

    Detailed Description : Since the end of the 1980s, Bernardi Roig has been unfolding an unsettling experience of obsession. On occasion, his works take on the quality of a mirror, trapping, deforming our image and even placing us behind the stage, as if we were waiting for the characters in a play to appear. The gaze is always hindered, frozen or pierced by artificial light. Bernardi Roig's practice over all these years has taken place under the shadow of two key questions: how to confront inherited iconographic repertoires and how is it possible today, in a world overflowing with images, to create a lasting image, an image that pushes us to the edge of our psychic precipice.

  • Rüdiger Bernhard  (+)

    Biography : Bernhard Rüdiger was born in Rome in 1964. Since 1994 he lives in Paris, where he teaches at the National School of Fine Arts in Lyon.

Proposte dalla Collezione del Museo, Museo Pecci Milan (2011); 54° Venice Biennale, Venice (2011).

    Detailed Description : The German-Italian artist Bernhard Rüdiger (Rome, Italy, 1964) produces sculptures that shape the space, mark the time and build a perceptual experience through the art object in which the balance is perennially unstable. As a very complete artist, Rüdiger has created paintings, installations, sculptures, collages, photographs, video and theatre performances; he took part in the debate on contemporary art as an engaged teacher. Since the 2000s his research has been focusing on the possibility of making concrete elusive elements like noises and voices, the air and the wind, again to stimulate the spectator to experience new physical and mental perceptions.

  • Stocker Esther  (+)

    Biography : Esther Stocker was born in Silandro, Italy in 1974. She currenlty lives and works in Vienna. Between 1994 and 1999, Stocker studied painting and art at the Academy of Figurative Arts in Vienna and in 1996 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brera, Milan. Between 1999 and 2000 she attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Since the late ‘90s, Stocker has presented her artworks in numerous solo and collective exhibitions both in and out of Austria. In 2004, Stocker won the prestigious Austrian Otto Mauer Award. The artist has exhibited her works in the following museums among others: Museum Ritter, Waldenbunch (2015); Vasarely Museum, Budapest (2013); Belvedere- 21er Haus, Vienna (2012); Kunstmuseum, Stuttgart (2012); MassArt Boston (2012); Macro, Rome (2011); South London Gallery, London (2009); CCNOA, Brusselles (2008); Museum Moderner Kunst Stiffung Ludwig, Vienna (2008); Essl Museum, Klosterneuburg (2006); AR/GE Kunst Galerie Museum, Bolzano (2004).

    Detailed Description : The predominant elements since Esther Stocker’s earliest works are the geometric motif of lattice patterns, as well as a reduced to black, white and shades of gray chromatism. Stocker’s research deals with structure and perception of space. The decomposition, the destruction of the forms that are precise, represent for the artist the starting point from which his paintings, as well as her photographic works, installations and interventions on the facades proceed. She creates her work as a system of structured signs and geometric patterns in white-black-gray, also developed into the third dimension by changing the space and the architecture by means of artistic interventions, among which are optical breakage and disorders or transgressions. Being noises and disruptions often minimal, they cause a vague and deferred perception that repeatedly require the observation of this apparent precision. In this way the artist creates dynamic spaces that lose their regular apparently clear pattern in paintings.

  • Donald Sultan  (+)

    Biography : Donald Sultan was born in Asheville, North Carolina, US in 1951. He currently lives and works in New York. After receiving his BFA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Sultan moved to Chicago to earn his MA from the Art Institute of Chicago. Sultan has exhibitied in a variety of Istitutions such as: MoMA (New York), theNational Museum of American Art Smithsonian Institute (Washington), theWhitney Museum (New York), theGuggenheim Museum (New York).

Recently Group Exhibitions include: Frontiers Reimagined, Museo di Palazzo Grimani, Venice(2015); Antropia, Eduardo Secci Contemporary, Pietrasanta (2015); Screenprints, Silkscreens and Serigraphs, Mary Ryan Gallery, New York (2015); New Work, The Drawing Room, East Hampton, New York (2013); Summer Salad,Janet Borden, INC., New York (2013); The Flower Series, Alan Avery Art Company, Atlanta (2012); Scott White Contemporary Art, San Diego (2009).

    Detailed Description : Donald Sultan is best known for his massive still lifes and landscapes, and noted for his use of abstract black forms against areas of bright color. Born in Asheville, North Carolina, Sultan grew up in the mountains, and became familiar with Appalachian folk art traditions. During the 1970s and 1980s, Sultan began to paint using industrial materials, including vinyl, linoleum, and masonite, juxtaposing his traditional subject matter with unusual materials. These works often involve creating layers of tar and rubber on top of slabs of linoleum or masonite, which are then stripped away in pieces to reveal the multiple surfaces beneath, which are then painted over. The finished works combine a Minimalist aesthetic of few colors and geometric shapes with a highly unique treatment and destruction of surface.

  • Zimoun  (+)

    Biography : Zimoun lives and works in Bern, Switzerland. Recent displays of his work include exhibitions at the Nam June Paik Art Museum in Korea; Kuandu Museum of Fine Arts, Taipei; Ringling Museum of Art, Florida; Harnett Museum of Art, Richmond; bitforms gallery New York; Kunsthalle Bern; Seoul Museum of Art; Museum of Contemporary Art Liechtenstein; Fine Arts Museum Rennes; Art Basel; Central for Contemporary Art Brussels; Galerie Denise René Paris; Museum Les Champs Libres, Rennes; Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Mumbai City Museum; Contemporary Art Museum MNAC Bucharest; Beall Art Center, Los Angeles; Museum of Fine Arts Bern; Museum of Contemporary Art MSUM, Ljubljana; National Art Museum, Beijing; Museum of Fine Arts Lugano; among others.

    Detailed Description : Zimoun’s practice exists the critical edge of handicraft, automation, sound art, drawing and virtual presence. Museum exhibitions exploring these topics, and their branch into the genres of media and performance art, have been on the rise in recent years; for example, “Ghosts in the Machine” (New Museum), “Soundings” (MoMA NY), “Sound Art. Sound as a Medium of Art” (ZKM), “The Art of Participation” (SF MoMA) and “Stage Presence” (SF MoMA).  As an emerging artist in a rapidly growing field, Zimoun demonstrates a tremendous vision for live experience in a visual arts context. His work is deserving of wide exposure and new challenges - especially in museums and places that can create lasting art historical connections, among peers. Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun's minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.
