Wednesday November 15, 2006, at 6pm, the Abitart Hotel in Rome will inaugurate la the exhibit Impossible, by Luca Curci and Fabiana Roscioli.

The exhibit will present to the public a collection of 20 video stills from the video trilogy Impossible by Luca Curci e Fabiana Roscioli Conceived between 2004 and 2006. Impossible language, Impossible love, Impossible garden. During the opening the video trilogy Impossible will be projected and the show’s catalogue, by Giorgia Calo’ and Micol di Veroli will be officially presented.

It was both the curators’ and artists’ choice to bring the exhibit to a public space generally not prone to art such as a hotel. The hotel hosting the event was chosen as the ideal location for an works of Luca Curci e Fabiana Roscioli on the basis of its sensibility and active participation shown since its inception. In fact, the Abitart Hotel has been since a regular venue for exhibits on painting, photography, and digital art.

Art shows in hotels are a constantly expanding phenomena in Italy and elsewhere. Thus, it is not a coincidence that the work of Luca Curci e Fabiana Roscioli has been shown recently during an acclaimed international video fair, DiVA, hosted by the Kube Hotel in Paris (October 2006).

Luca Curci e Fabiana Roscioli through their video art and video stills engage the viewer in a diverse observation on the theme of impossibility. The first of the trilogy, Impossible Language, manifests an intent to find a reunion, a balance between the body and the mind, a continuity between the body and nature, subject and object, body and spirituality, convinced that there is no model whose laws go without nature’s dictation. Impossible Love, instead is a representation of a non-place, a binary vision in a dimension where a body-machine tries to interact and communicate, a struggle between essence and absence, between contact and vision, between silence and emptiness. The latest video, Impossible Garden, presented for the first time at this very event explores the new frontiers of communication in an artistic universe of mutation, where new encounters germinate images, new technologies, ethnic cultures, plastic surgery, theoretical manifestoes, architecture and psycho-physical relationships between the body and spatial identity.

Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us

Art | August 4, 2020

Katharina Grosse’s paintings can appear anywhere: on a rubber boot, on an egg, on the crumpled folds of a cloth, along a railway line, on the beach, in snow, on a sculptural form, or across a façade and on the roof. Her large-scale works are multi-dimensional pictorial worlds in which splendid colours sweep across walls, ceilings, objects, and even entire buildings and landscapes. Central to Grosse’s artistic practice is this notion that painting takes place not just on canvas, but that it can also permeate every facet of our surroundings. For the exhibition "Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us", the artist has transformed the Historic Hall of Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the outdoor space behind the building, into an expansive painting which radically destabilises the existing order of the museum architecture.

tensions in the region. Childhood memories steeped in the drama of war and refugee life recur throughout his art, which embraces themes like home, nation and cultural identity through a variety of media ranging from drawing and sculpture to video, installation and even writing. However, he does not proclaim a rupture between the personal and intimate and the historical and social, but instead perceives a relationship and continuity to be found in his intervention for the Palacio de Cristal.
