"Enough" by Silvia Levenson + "Chromatic alterations" by Lao Gabrielli

Post date: 20/10/2021

BASTA/ ENOUGH de Silvia Levenson   

This is a project based on the reproduction of portraits of women of different ages and ethnicities on which the word “basta”has been printed in different languages, including the languages of native peoples.

"I believe that there are no neutral materials; in my work I mainly use glass because I am fascinated by its ambiguity. For my work it becomes the ideal material to show the ambiguity of human relationships. I use a very traditional, hand-crafted material to describe not what we put on top of our furniture but what we carefully hide under our rugs." Silvia Levenson’s excerpt.

About Silvia Levenson 

Originally from Buenos Aires Silvia Levenson immigrate to Italy in 1981 during the last dictatorship. She explores interpersonal relationships through installations and objects that state firmly what is usually felt or whispered. Her work is centralized on this unspeakable space, which is located between what we can see and what we feel, and she uses glass to reveal those things that are normally hidden.

 

CHROMATIC ALTERATIONS by Lao Gabrielli

El color vibrante y la abstracción geométrica son un denominador común la obra de Gabrielli. “Alteraciones cromáticas” es un juego visual, a través del color y la geometría en el plano. De esta forma propicia una realidad óptica, alterando y acelerando en apariencia, las líneas móviles a través de secuencias geométricas y la variación del color. El juego minimalista de las geometrías evoca a la escuela cinética argentina de los años sesenta encabezada por Julio Le Parc y el Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel (GRAV).
