Wyeksponowane prace łączy przede wszystkim postawa twórców. Wszyscy oni deklarują intencję oddania odbiorcy szerokiego pola interpretacji swoich prac. Wiąże się najczęściej z wyborem realizacji przyjmujących formę abstrakcji, lub takich działań, które za punkt odniesienia traktują kanon ikonografii europejskiej. Materialna codzienność zostaje usunięta z pola widzenia. Pojawiają się między innymi nawiązania do hipotez naukowych, religii, przyrody, życia w industrialnym pejzażu, wszystkie jednak jednocześnie dotykają obszaru niewyrażalnego i uznają jego ważność. Wystawa w subtelny sposób wpisuje się w tegoroczne obchody stulecia awangardy w Polsce.

Na wystawie prezentowane są prace siedemnastu artystów, inspirowane zagadnieniem czarnej dziury. Jak piszą kuratorki projektu – Urszula Kluz-Knopek i Marta Ostajewska: „Czarna dziura to czysta transcendencja, czasoprzestrzeń, której nic, nawet światło, nie może opuścić. Rodzi się w miejscu umierających gwiazd, pochłania materię, a zderzając się z innymi czarnymi dziurami osiąga wielkość milionów mas Słońca. Nie można się z niej wydostać, wyznacza granicę bez powrotu. Znajduje się wewnątrz własnego horyzontu zdarzeń, wszelkie wyimaginowane próby ucieczki prowadzą donikąd. W jej wnętrzu czas spowalnia, na zewnątrz – całkiem znika. Jest pełna niewyjaśnionych osobliwości, w niej kończy się czas, a grawitacja wzrasta do poziomu nieskończoności. Czarna dziura wciąga, kurczy się, rozpręża, fascynuje, przyciąga, pochłania. Niektórzy widzą w niej tunel do innego wszechświata, inni korek w wannie pełnej galaktyk, czarny kleks, nieskończoną kałużę, aksamitną plamę niepamięci. Czarna dziura to zagadka, w której kręcimy się jak w wirze… Osiemnastu artystów wpadło do czarnej dziury, gdzie wpół spalone konary splotły się z amorficznymi, błyszczącymi kawałkami pulsującej materii. Grawitacja zwolniła, nawarstwiając totemiczne kształty. W pulsujący wir, jak w żywołowną pułapkę, wpadły małe ssaki, szczątkowe rekonstrukcje zbrodni, astrofizyka spotkała się z religią, kwadrat, obrócony nieskończoną ilość razy, przemienił się w koło. Rzeczywistość wcisnęła się w pętlę zawieszoną na punktach sprzeczności, gdzie odległości są tylko pozorne. Is there any hope?”.
Na wystawie prezentowana jest selekcja prac artystów, które pojawiły się w tematycznym magazynie „Woof Woof Arf Arf” (2016) wydawanym przez Uniwersytet Artystyczny w Poznaniu, częściowo finansowanym ze środków Samorządu Doktorantów Środowiskowych Studiów Doktoranckich na ASP im. Jana Matejki w Krakowie.
For this year Turin’s ARTWEEK, viadellafucina16 – the first international experiment of condominium-museum – opens its doors to the city showing the results of the first intense months of incubation, which already became an inspiring model for other projects that are coming to life in Turin and other parts of Italy.
The condominium, meeting point between the public and the private domain, place of democracy and conflict, opens its spaces to promote a new model for sharing, exchange and openness towards diversity, starting a process of transformation and collective knowledge, mediated by the power of art, beauty and care.
There are four initiatives in the programme taking place from October 31st in the building’s common spaces.
At the ground floor, in the space Idiòt, it will take place the group exhibition “I ragazzi di via della Fucina”, with works by 24 international artists under35, selected in between the 442 participants of the residency open call.
Thanks to the collaboration with NESXT, the festival of independent spaces directed by Olga Gambari, from October 26th it will be on show “THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME”, a collection of posters in the hall of the condominium-museum.
The same group invited the artists Calixto Ramirez e Josè Angelino to create a site-specific intervention inside the workshop Fucina16, in front of the condominium’s big garden.
To end, on the first floor it will be possible to attend at the making of “Assemblea di Condominio” by Francesco Maluta, artist in residence at viadellafucina16 since a few weeks already.
The opening will be on Tuesday 31st of October, at 5:30 pm.
Sunday November 5th, at 6 pm, viadellafucina16 will be inside ARTISSIMA bringing a public moment of debate and reflection with the members of the Scientific Committee: Luisa Perlo (A.Titolo), Ilaria Bonacossa, Mario Cristiani, Ilda Curti, Alessandra Pioselli, Anna Pironti, Pier Luigi Sacco, Catterina Seia and Brice Coniglio (ConiglioViola), creator and artistic director of the project.
