16 september – 1 november 2014
Will open Tuesday, September 16 at 19.00 in via Maximian 25, Milan, the group show Otherwhere the first shows of the winter season of AICA Gallery | Andrea Ingenito Contemporary Art. The exhibition, curated by Serena Ribaudo, follows the idea of the gallery owner Andrea Ingenito that he wants to present, in the Milan gallery, the most interesting talents of the international art scene and they are famous for an extremely contemporary dialectical but also they are very “immediate”.
The Naples gallery instead is for more historicized artists (real landmark of modern and contemporary italian art), Milan becomes increasingly fertile ground for experimentation and new languages: a kind of AICAlab, attentive to suggestions and to the contemporary pulse.
Fathom the soul. Immerse themselves. Riccardo Ajossa, Giacomo Rizzo, Sandro Scalia sublimate the natural inspiration in the absoluteness of artistic expression and process different aesthetic dialogues and complex in their unity of inspiration. Otherwhere traces a route that creates a harmonic matching, despite the specific individuality marked by a common tuning: the need to express the capacity that is all strictly belonging to the art / gnosis to postpone from the otherwise.
The works of Richard Ajossa have an originality where artistic wisdom is regenerated in time patience. The enzymes indigo, turmeric, black smoke, oak, logwood, red African soil knead and saturate the flax fibers, dell’abaca, cotton, kozo, the mitzumata and draw anthropological landscapes, simulacra the deeper condition of human existence.
The matter it submits meekly act of Giacomo Rizzo: it purges from its accidental nature, transmuted to become plastically universal idea. The translucent density of the wax beats corroborated by internal tension and vitality pantheistic and is invaded by a cosmogony of tracks like a eidotipo where the phenomenal datum and layering of signs acquire values absolutely metalinguistic and lyrical.
Sandro Scalia is heir to the finest tradition of Italian photography. In his work, the perfection of the syntax is combined in an intensive excavation of the psyche motions. The reconciliation / comparison of the topoi of the here and the beyond generates an encroachment, an expansion of spirit that flows in an air suspension to find the deepest secret of the things in interiore homine.
