Tensioni Strutturali #2: Aeneas Wilder, Andrea Nacciarriti, Davide Dormino, Diamante Faraldo, Marzia Corinne Rossi

Overview
 

On Friday November 25th 2016, at our space in Piazza Goldoni in Florence, starting at 7PM, the Eduardo Secci Gallery is pleased to inaugurate the group show "Structural Tensions #2", curated by Angel Moya Garcia.

The "Structural Tensions" trilogy is an organic project divided into three independent yet interconnected exhibitions, which are presented within the gallery's spaces step-by-step. If the first exhibition, which was carried out last February, focused on the central role of the individual in the construction of the perceived space, through environmental installations by Carlo Bernardini, Monika Grzymala, Roberto Pugliese and Ester Stocker, the second one analyses the different possibilities of matter as an element of representation and, finally, the third one, scheduled for next year, will study the entropic processes of the everyday environment.

The five guest artists developed the second chapter of the trilogy as an analysis of the possibilities and limits of matter in its different structures, aspects and meanings. The exhibit presents a series of works that interrogate themselves, in very contrasting ways, on the subtleties and nuances that are concealed within the recesses of the atavistic dichotomies between physicality and abstraction, what is tangible and what is indefinite, stability and uncertainty. A study of phenomena where what is real appears and is shown through traces, references and signs in which the individual may reach to recognize and comprehend it exclusively through personal experience. In doing so, the exhibition is conceived as a series of impulses, clues and hints in which the artworks slow down, cancelling any attempt of taxonomic classification or categorization, and rejecting all objectifications of what is real.

In the second room, “Lontanodentro”, by Davide Dormino, which shapes into a waterfall built with iron threads that cover the entire room and converge from the ceiling’s perimeter to the center of the floor, leaving the viewer with the option of observing it from a peripheral perspective or by crossing it to reach it’s core. In the third room we find “All Is Shining the Same”, by Marzia Corinne Rossi, consisting of a tangle of self-supporting industrial pigmented sandpaper elements, a material that characterizes the artist’s production, which align in the exposition space, mutating its physical and perceptive characteristics. Opposite, Diamante Faraldo presents “A Nord del Futuro”, a large upside-down map that requires the viewer to stop and scrutinize it carefully in order to distinguish nuances, details and traits concealed behind a material that tries to hide behind its ambiguity. Finally, in the last room, Andrea Nacciarriti, with his work “Crystallize #002 [matter]” investigates the capacity of transformation and the fragility of matter, dilating suspension and analyzing the category of transition through an act of fragmentation that drags beyond our possibilities to reach it.
