OLTREDIMORE GALLERY - ARTE FIERA 2012
Art | Museums | Bologna City
The OltreDimore Gallery changes its skin in a new space that literally “crosses” a seventeenth century palace in the heart of Bologna. 400 square meters distributed over two floors that the contemporary art gallery will share with the historic interior design shop, Dimore. Two souls, then, making for a single sensory experience that will take the visitor from the design proposals to creative lifestyle ideas, and from art, fashion and architecture catalogs to the site-specific installations and the works of art exhibited in the gallery and vice versa.
From the 20th of January till the 3rd of March:
January 20, Galleria OltreDimore opens in Piazza San Giovanni in Monte in Bologna the solo exhibition of Ivana Spinelli entitled Loverrs/Fuckerrs edited by Raffaele Gavarro.
After the project Global Pin-Up, a dummy meta-brand which proceeds between simulated representation and real production, through the employment of different medias (installation, drawing, video, dress-code, accessories), Ivana Spinelli’s imagery is every time more fluid, soft, irrational.
The woman’s body is an excuse to speak about something else again. It becomes a pincushion in the social and politic dimension of personal relationship, even those that are filtered by the media. The artist’s approach is critical but not cold and remote, indeed deeply involved and surrounded by the images that are proposed by medias, revised as mental and emotional reflection of a visual impression, a simulation of subjective way of perceiving the world.
Starting from the Global Sisters’ project drawings, abstract figures of kamikaze women in alluring poses, Ivana Spinelli shows new visual suggestions: video and video-installations, a ceramic sculpture, images taken by internet, paintings, an emotive but not casual jumble that creates a kind of panopticon of impossible, where we can penetrate and recognize a course made of cultural and emotional references of all personal.
Through the artist’s words, “LOVERRS/FUCKERRS is a little dipper theatre. A narration that doesn’t start from the beginning but maybe from the middle. Endurance competitions, fights, killings, without signs of pain, appears just to escape. Big and invisibles actions, stabbing smiles, impractical kisses. Break on through to the other side.”
The gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from:
10:00 - 13:00 17:00 - 19:30
