Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam – Harmonic Motion

“Enel Contemporanea 2013” proposes a reflexion about the deep connections between energy and an individual’s intimate personal space. The complex process that produces spiritual energy thus turns into a means of protecting one’s intimate sphere.

Toshiko Horiuchi’s works therefore involve a real comprehensive effort aimed at creating energy; they rely on organic growth rather than on sudden intuition. Her webs celebrate fun and enjoyment, as well as relax and reflection.The idea that each and everyone of us is connected to the rest of the planet is central to Toshiko Horiuchi’s vision of art. Making sculptures by knitting implies choosing a method that only allows to create works by repeating the same gestures time and again. Her works have little to do with meticulous organization or coordination; they are much more the expression of a homogeneous flow of inspiration, as her art origins from movements that directly result in other movements.

Toshiko Horiuchi’s passion for a material like fabric and for its weft is deeply rooted in the artist’s culture that tends to prioritize touch and the connection with one’s own body over the visual aspect of life. Toshiko Horiuchi explores the interaction between the human body and space, as well as between the human body and matter. Fabric is treated as an additional layer of skin that protects and hides individuals. Her sculptures are places rather than objects and offer their users a chance to hide or feel sheltered.

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.

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
