Luca Curci – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival?

Marjolaine Uscotti – By changing the space, I constantly modify my structures. By changing the event, I constantly modify my emotions. Seeing my body as architecture or something pliable, It’s LIQUID themes always make me think on driving my thoughts and my artwork towards the contemporary path, with breaths and hints that are always new and contemporary.

L.C. – What are you currently working on?

M.U. – I am currently working on the importance of giving a tangible and legible message through already existing art forms that I can improve with more visibility and new discoveries.

L.C. – Are your artworks focused on a specific theme?

M.U. – My artworks’ main theme is the importance of places in which it is exhibited, so different spaces, architectures and countries as well. Places that are used to welcome artworks, crossing points such as hotels, refuges and trade areas.

L.C. – How is being an artist nowadays?

M.U. – Being an artist deals with the search for conveyance in order to spread thoughts, emotions, changes and life cicles.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
