official opening of the new exhibition space on the Isle of Capri
with the exhibition
GIOSETTA FIORONI. CAPRI
Curator Marco Meneguzzo
12 June – 17 July 2016
After Naples and Milan the gallery AICA | Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art opens his third exhibition space on the wonderful Isle of Capri.
The opening will be celebrated with the solo show Giosetta Fioroni. “Capri”, the artist has a special predilection for the island and has with the gallery a close collaboration. Because of the special relationship that binds the artist to Capri, during the opening on June 11th Giosetta Fioroni will receive therefore from the city government the symbolic keys of the city.
The exhibition, curated by Marco Meneguzzo and conceived by Piero Mascitti, is a tribute for Capri by the artist: beloved destination and shared for a lifetime with her partner Goffredo Parise who dedicated to the island the booklet “Capri” published in 1999 and embellished by some drawings of Fioroni. The booklet and seven drawings are on display from June 11st to June 19th at the Council Chamber of the Town Hall, exceptionally granted for the special occasion. Beside them the public can also admire the first of seven ceramic sculptures inspired by the famous Grotta Azzurra, designed expressly for this exhibition and manufactured by Bottega Gatti in Faenza.
To complete the group of works presented at Town Hall, the exhibition continues in the gallery – in collaboration with Art Club Epochè – until July 17th the other six ceramics of the series dedicated to the Grotta Azzurra, each one with a name of the weekday, the serie of “Argenti”, corpus of historic works made in the ‘60s with faces, figures and landscapes in aluminium enamel and some recent works.
The new space of the gallery AICA is located in the heart of Capri, in the central Via Le Botteghe in a typical Villa Caprese converted into a place for culture. The conversion was made by local designers which reused structure and preexisting materials: crystal, ancient majolicas, woods and steel have created a place where the enivironment and sustenibility are important as well as art.
