A Female Sight
28 May – 12 July 2014
The AICA gallery | Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art is pleased to present Tuesday, May 27, 2014 at 19:00 in his exhibition spaces of Milan, the exhibition A FEMALE SIGHT. Four protagonists: Alice Olimpia Attanasio, Odette Scapin, Valentina Biasetti and Suzanne Moxhay, through different languages but equivalent in intensity, they show the intimate relationship between being a woman and the macrocosm of nature, including their being artists and the changing perception of otherness. The exhibition, curated by Massimo Sgroi, follows the logic of the exhibition gallery owner Andrea Ingenito that in the Milanese space presents what he considers the most interesting young artists on the international scene.
Alice Olimpia Attanasio, young talent who has captured the attention of audiences and critics with several solo exhibitions, presents a highly original blend of aesthetics and rigor by the neoclassic style.
In the hieratic faces of woman portraits in the whiteness of white ceramic there are also hide fairytale creatures of the animal world and sprout and grow flowers, berries, mushrooms. In this, not always happy, marriage between man and nature, only the nature is tinged with color, an intense color, vibrant, is the color of life. Alice Olimpia Attanasio loves this theme, and she also repeats in the canvases of the Panopticon cycle: on dimensionless backgrounds, young girls posing lost in the void, are surrounded by vines blood red.
To be dosed carefully, is the powerful elixir of love in limited edition proposed by Odette Scapin. She is an emerging artist she had already developed numerous exhibitions. Her works, pencil on paper, take us back on time, to an imaginary past vintage and very romantic: roses, hibiscus, hummingbirds, deer, squirrels, butterflies, and a chorus with sweet cherubs recall us memories of love boyish and valuable. Amazing the yield of her works made with pastel, with faces of dreamy woman and hidden symbolic messages, such as the skull and the snake, or the swallow whose singing awakens and challenges us to take the path of the sacred heart.
Valentina Biasetti is one of the most imaginative and popular artists of recent years. With the cycle Testament formidable invites us to embark on a journey to mysterious places and unknown, a journey in the depths of our unconscious, a trip, in fact, formidable. Working on old sheets, with a technique that she calls “necessary”, a fallen angel, a jester and a vagabond, cross the metaphorical passing threshold to another world, represented by a hula hoop, to be run over by a rainbow color: their big feet gray symbol of earthly life, leave this dimension to take refuge in the carefree childhood, the gracefulness dream, being other than itself.
Suzanne Moxhay, is the only foreign artist, just back from the great success of his Italian baptism with the exhibition Under Nature in Naples, and Asia Contemporary Art Show in Hong Kong (both events due to the intuition of the gallery owner Andrea Ingenito), is certainly an exception in the contemporary photography.
His job consist in build a real sets in his studio overlaying old photos, tourist brochures, posters of old science fiction films and horror novels, and then photograph them and manipulate them digitally, creating scenarios with a strong pictoria that shoked the human eyes. The result is post-apocalyptic setting that certainly refers to the films of recent years, when nature took over, regaining possession of its space and creeping between what remains of humanity is only a trace.
