“Alfa Beti” . September 20 through 30, 2001 . Bari

An artwalk through the works of Paolo Baldassarri, Amelia Chieco, Luca Curci and Oreste Panebianco.
The “Alfa Beti” project was born of the idea of merging various artistic languages to create one alphabet (language) that works for all visitors.
The four artists wanted to do homage to the “enchanted” places in the heart of the old city, historical-cultural architectural treasures like the Vallisa church, and made them the common denominator of the project.
Starting with the existing structures of Vallisa Street, with its new look, as their studio – the area mostly lit in the Vallisa church lights, where there are music shows all year – the four artists have created a sort of a gallery way, an approach built of their artworks. Walking into Vallisa street one encounters Oreste Panebianco‘s “Arcanoids,” grotesque animal and human faces in relief here and there along the way accompanying the visitor through the four young artists’ languages, in a procession of peace that has no religions or borders: Paolo Baldassarri‘s “Herosouls,” his digital sound and video creation and installation, is an introduction to new concepts of art and design through innovative technologies; Amelia Chieco leads us through her world of boxes, this time inspired by Italo Calvino’s cities; and Luca Curci ends the journey with his video installation “Lapsus in Your Mind,” one of his sculptures, and a series of his paintings.

Place: Artoteca Vallisa – 11 Via Vallisa – Bari
Time: From 7 P.M. to Midnight (every day except Monday)

 

“The Rising Sun and the Big Apple” . September 20 through 30, 2001 . Bari

Works of the Japanese artists Takafumi Kamio and Kenji Takeda and U.S. artists Ward George and Mark Rodriguez.

Abusuan was born in the old city of Bari, meeting place of peoples, cultures and religions; it’s located in the perfect place for it, Vallisa Street, the crossroads of artisans, trade and art on the edge of the Bari docks, near the medieval taverns of the old Benedictine monastery.
Mark Rodriguez‘s installation recalls the culture of the Americas with echoes of the primitive. A work of sure scenografic and visual impact.
Takafumi Kamio studies nature, observes it and recolors it…all with the help of new technologies.
Kenji Takeda, advertising graphic designer and artist, has been studying form deeply for years: deforming it, digitalizing and printing it, with supports built in a way that remind one very much of oriental culture.
Ward George uses painting, photography, computer art and digital printing for his best expression of his model of the ideal woman. The results are surprisingly communicative.

Place: Abusuan – 67/68 Vallisa Street – Bari
Time: from 7 P.M. to Midnight (every day except Monday)
