"Spazio" by Gianmarco Donaggio
Tid og sted
Gianmarco Donaggio considers space to be tension and possibility. Through this, his artist’s practice is deeply connected to human perception and the immaterial. In this exhibition he deconstructs the objects and deprive them of their characteristics to find their essence.
This exhibition is intended as a synergy between the audience and the artist’s works, asking the observer to give importance to what is not presented, as much as to what is actually there.
By contemplating the Void, the observers are invited to conquer their present time – here and now. To be present is a difficult practice these days, especially in a society where our time and attention is constantly filled with distracting impressions.
In the same way the sculptures draw the observer to meditate, the artist had to enter an almost meditative process during the making of each work. By shaping the sculptures by hand, with as fragile a material as chalk, the artist establishes a distance from the mass production mode of creating an object. Therefore time becomes an important part of the process.
