THE TIME INSIDE
Luca Curci & Fabiana Roscioli

Opening: April 6 2006, 7 p.m.
Dates: April 4 – 29, 2006

Location: Galerie Mamia bretesché – 48, rue Chapon – Paris

Mamia Bretesché Gallery is proud to present THE TIME INSIDE, an exhibition of video and photography by Luca Curci and Fabiana Roscioli. Their first solo show in Paris is on view from April 4 – 29, 2006.

Luca Curci and Fabiana Roscioli are fascinated by the architecture of the inner life, marked by fluidity, transparence and fuzzy. The architecture of thoughts. The architecture of meanings. The architecture of the Lost Paradise identity.

They reminds us that the frontiers between artistic and non-artistic mediums are no longer available. Their art became inseparable of technology and information, philosophy/psychology and literature. Their art is influenced by the key words of post-literature, Leonardo’s canon: image, figure and concept. Luca Curci and Fabiana Roscioli explore, in this universe of mutation, the interrelations between exterior Nature and interior Self (THE TIME INSIDE), the psycho-physical links between human body and space-time foam of identity.

THE TIME INSIDE of post-literature seems to be closed to the apocaliptic vision of time expressed by the most compelling post-literary writer of our times, Madison Morrison: ‘(…) time goes forwards and backwards simultaneously. In other words, we live in the future and the past, as well as the present’.

The architect Luca Curci and the artist Fabiana Roscioli look for the magical assembling knot between the physical and the virtual space, the transarchitecture. The architecture of the hyperlinked cyberspace. The liquid architecture. In their opinion contemporary art is living the post-organic universe. To avoid the dissolution of ego in such an instable world, full of temporary tele-existences, they looks for an equilibrium between mind and body, subject and object, body and spiritual life, for a continuity between Nature and Self.

As all the major artists/thinkers of post-literary times, Luca Curci and Fabiana Roscioli are focused on an onthology of multiplicity and a metaphysics of event. THE TIME INSIDE and communication are key sources for our identity and spiritual life. THE TIME INSIDE is the assembling node where we can meet the Other/the God. Einstein was convinced that even God is time beyond the temporal objects. All his life, R. M. Rilke had the obsession to transform the exterior world into a sweet, inner space, THE TIME INSIDE.

THE TIME INSIDE is a liquid structure, like the videos of Luca Curci and Fabiana Roscioli. They use the body language of some female characters, Oriental or European, to tell us the strange story of the actual human fractal identity. THE TIME INSIDE is a sum of tragic histories on our destiny, on the paradoxal lack of communication in an overwhelming and oversaturated communication universe. The former vivid words (THE WORDS INSIDE: LOGOS) are now dead and dried branches (wooden snakes) of a Lost Paradise tree, which try in vain to interfer with the body/spiritual language of the female characters. They are deprived of the links with THE TIME INSIDE, the living time, the sweet Bergsonian duration. (Constantin Severin)

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

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.
