RED LAB GALLERY
Suspended di Luca Spano

Via Solari 46, 20144 Milano
info@redlabgallery.com
https://www.redlabgallery.com

Through an anthropological, philosophical, and scientific approach, the result of three artistic residencies between Italy and Germany, Luca Spano explores the biological and technological limits of sight, investigating the relationship between the visible and the invisible, and in particular, that shadowy area between the two: the last known point, a border area whose mystery invites discovery. Spano’s work is characterized by experimentation with various media, from photography to video, to installation sculptures with assemblages of different materials such as glass, iron, obsidian fragments, always with the aim of questioning what an image is and what its role is in contemporary society

STILL
ACQUA, Liquida Bellezza Fotografia

Via Zamenhof, 11 – 20136 Milano
info@stillfotografia.it
https://www.stillfotografia.it

Silvano Pupella’s photographic narrative for Acqua Sant’Anna positions itself within a rich visual landscape with illustrious precedents. Pupella’s photography is the direct synthesis of daily documentation, awareness, and the conveyance of a sense of belonging, an operational set from which he constructs the entirety of his professional gaze. Influenced by a profound understanding of corporate dynamics, gained through his managerial experience, Pupella has been on the other side of the barricade, allowing him to now simultaneously follow the communicative trajectory of the companies he collaborates with, embracing stories held within the thick walls of corporate structures in order to pass on their collective value. He manages to translate into images the sinuous chain of his client, sequencing portraits, material abstractions, and glimpses of buildings. He meticulously describes Sant’Anna’s production cycle: from the water flowing from the source to a detailed examination of the bottling process. All this without ever losing sight of the human aspect. After all, the driving force behind the companies lies in the people who work there. In doing so, every automation, gesture, and plastic detail is definitively freed from the austere conception attributed to the industrial setting. We find ourselves in a context of poetic reality. Denis Curti

Viasaterna
Milano Meccanica

Via Giacomo Leopardi 32, 20123, Milano
info@viasaterna.com
https://it.viasaterna.com/

Collective exhibition curated by Giorgio Verzotti. Artists featured in the exhibition: Dadamaino, Niele Toroni, Sergio Lombardo, Irma Blank, Bertrand Lavier, Giovanni Rizzoli, Daniele Innamorato, and Camilla Gurgone. The repetitive, mechanical, serial act subtracts pathos from artistic creation, romantically conceived as unique, unrepeatable, attributable to the creative genius. Hence, the mechanical act, repetition, and chance become active, generative principles and organizers of form, language, and works. Different motivations and artistic modalities are evident in the selection, certainly not exhaustive, of the artists featured in this exhibition, also determined by the cultural needs typical of the various epochs in which they lived and worked, from the 1950s to the present day.
