The AICA Gallery| Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art of Naples is pleased to present “Giosetta Foroni Carte anni Sessanta”. The exhibition show twenty Giosetta Fioroni’s silver works on paper.
Giosetta Fioroni is one of the most important Italian artists.
From Friday, December 18, 2015 until February 26, 2016, “Carte anni 60” presents a corpus of historical works on paper made in the period in which the artist exhibited at Galleria La Tartaruga in Rome, the most important of his career. In those same years, in 1968, Lucio Amelio dedicated to her a solo exhibition in his gallery in Naples.
The artistic works of the sixties are characterized by the cycle of the Silvers: faces, figures and landscapes painted with an industrial paint aluminum color. And as proof of the importance of these artistic works, the Pompidou Centre has recently acquired one of this for its permanent collection.
From the early ideograms to the canvases, going through the papers here presented, the images painted in the white paper and in the canvas, are like ephemeral impressions of faces, gestures and gazes; moments that stay for a moment in the retina of the observer and there are stopped, away from the passage of time.
In the exhibition, you can admire emblematic examples of these for example in the work Waiting for Godot, an aluminum paint and pencil on paper of 70, Sister, built in 1969, or Liberty, ’68: impressions of bodies and faces that emerge from memory or , perhaps, they maybe vanish.
The dimension of time in these works is a essential element: the viewer is in fact led to an interpretation that proceeds by degrees, uncertain as images that emerge slowly from memory.The silver operas on paper the years ’69 -’70 named physiognomies are very significant, these works were exhibited in the fundamental exhibition dedicated to the artist by the New York Drawing Center in 2013.
Giosetta Fioroni began painting in the Fifties, but already in the early Sixties she moves away from Informal Art. As her colleagues, Angeli, Festa and Schifano, she takes urban images of the everyday life to bring them on the canvas. Estasy – Hedy Lamarr is an industrial enamel on paper ’67, and Fragment – Girl in Villa R, dated ’68, are among the works on display in the Neapolitan gallery spaces, and the most eloquent. The Italians artists distance themselves from American Pop Art and a mimetic reproduction of everyday reality. Using a frame as a start or a newspaper clipping, an own design that is projected on the canvas, the artist performs a manual and careful pictorial transcript.
Giosetta Fioroni ranges in his long career from a personal reinterpretations of American Pop art, silver cards in which she investigates multiple visions. She is a versatile artist multifaceted, approaching to performative art and also devoted himself to the production of ceramics at the atelier Gatti of Faenza.A catalog with unpublished text by Serena Ribaudo complete the exhibition.
