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.

    As visitors enter Seeing Forest, they step into a mysterious, forested zone that exists both in the imagination and in Singapore. In this in-between space called the secondary forest - a threshold between old-growth or primary forest and developed areas, between urban and wild, invention and reality - artist Robert Zhao Renhui invites us to consider a complex web of human and non-human co-existence. Seeing Forest encourages visitors to explore the ways in which urban design can shape the natural world, and vice versa, resulting in a new ecosystem of migrant species that echoes the histories, trajectories and makeup of a city’s human population.
