Lucia Pescador

Come rondini sul filo

Sunday December 15 2019
only between 10:30 and 12:30 AM


Drawings, films and objects gathered in life’s flow are placed on the long tables like swallows on a wire.

Lucia Pescador was born in Voghera on 9 February 1943. She graduated from the Brera Academy in Milan and then started teaching in the Arts High School in that same city. Since ever she has set her attention to drawing on a variety of papers. Her work develops around themes of Art, Nature, and Culture. In the nineties she began collecting images in a series she has titled "Left-handed Inventory of the Twentieth Century". It is presented in wall settings of photographs, drawings, blackboards, and objects named "crossroads".
Her art has been exhibited in private galleries, art fairs, museums since 1965, in group shows and hundreds of single exhibitions in Italy, France, Belgium, Holland, England, Austria, Germany, United States, Egypt, India and Cina.

That which flows scatters remnants that are ready to germinate: in new transitions, or in signs, at times in symbols, though always received with a yearning for reunion. Donata Negrini

Almost like a beat embodied in the fragile materiality of paper, the weft of color intercepts movement at its birth and projects it beyond the ephemeral appearance of density. Donata Negrini

Giulia Filippi

As in earth

Saturday May 11 2019
only between 4:30 and 6:30 PM


Giulia Filippi (born in Vicenza in 1982) received a BA from the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice, Italy, and is completing a MA in social innovation inspired by the vegetal world. Since 2014 she decided to live in Bevagna (PG). From 2007 she collaborates with various museums, administrations, institutions, associations, to carry out educational projects and workshops. Starting from 2001 she has been involved in group shows and one-person exhibitions in Italy and abroad.

Images are marked by sunlight on paper and velvet. There is also a sculpture made of sugar, a substance that comes from the chlorophyll photosynthesis: it reminds me of the windows' glazing in the Palazzo Te. "Così in terra" (As in earth) is part of a research path that explores the manifestations of celestial luminous matter in the vital phenomena of the planet. Light is a sculptural matter that suspends time in images, transforms substances and shapes the form of things of nature.

Playing with impermanence, one finds oneself meditating on time's cycle, in its diverse journey between us and the universe, towards a new materialism of contemplation. Donata Negrini

Oriane Stender

A La Recherche

Saturday September 28 2019
only between 5:30 and 7:30 PM


This series of drawings is based on - and made of - Marcel Proust's A La Recherche du Temps Perdu. After lightly coating the pages with beeswax, I draw on them with high carbon ink, adding my voice to the narrative, while still maintaining the influence of the legacy. In all of my work I try to balance the intellectual with the visceral, to keep the balance between craft and concept.

Born in San Francisco, California, Oriane Stender's work is in the collections of several museums including Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco/de Young Memorial Museum, and has been reviewed in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, The New Criterion, and The Chicago Tribune. She lives in Brooklyn, New York, and has been called "the secret love-child of Anni Albers and Andy Warhol".

The artist's narrative lays over the Proustian narrative, multiplying the layers between time and subject, so the elective affinity is shown with a polychrome and involuntary calligraphy, like memory. Donata Negrini

Paolo Giavazzi

Dalla Pelle al Banner

Saturday May 11 2019
only between 4:30 and 6:30 PM


Born in 1987 in Castiglione delle Stiviere where he now lives and works. In 2016 he started "Tracce di Inchiostro - Tattoo Studio" (traces in ink – Tattoo Studio). In the past three years he brought his name and the name of the studio to Tattoo Conventions in Northern Italy and in Europe, including London.

For MATtam I work publicly on the floor. I recreate iconographic images from the history of tattoo and more modern images specific to my personal style. I use only black markers of diverse dimensions on a white PVC sheet.

The grammar of an ancient practice is redefined by a new score: it's accelerated, moving, almost suspended, and freed from the mark of sacredeness. Donata Negrini
