The raw materials are also the starting point for Simone Negri; used for personal investigations of space, of the connections between full and empty, shapes which are formed by the meeting of straight lines and soft curves. Great importance is also given to the ancient technique of smoke firing, a blackening of the ceramic which leaves a margin of randomness and the unknown to the energy created during combustion.
Among the White collection, the impalpable works of Japanese artist Eri Dewa stand out. Playing with porcelain as if it were paper, they create shapes which recall vegetation; delicate and light, conveying both Japanese and contemporary traditions.
Annalisa Guerra also seems to challenge the raw materials, taking them to their limits: extremely fine porcelain, jagged shapes which impose themselves on space, creating new balances.
Also inspired by Nature are the works of Hungarian artist Zsolt Jozsef Simon: reckless and subtle shapes, exteriors with pointed and acrobatic tentacles, smooth and soft interiors, in an almost masculine/feminine contrast.
More geometrical and essential are the sculptures of Guido De Zan, characterized more by light than form, sculptures more like apparitions than presences. The dematerialization of shape is central to the process; the unravelling of the primary gesture/sign becomes decisive for the shape itself.
The inauguration will be held on 9th April, from 6pm – 9pm
