London Biennale 2014: Expo Brut

Category : around the world, mailart Apr 29th, 2014

From 1 May to 1 June 2014 in Tilly, Belgium, at Acrodacrolivres there’s an exhibition curated by Rino Telaro as a Pollination of London Biennale 2014. I have taken part in the independent exhibition/movement founded and directed by David Medalla since 2004. For each edition I made a card on the theme, as requested for participating, often with the Eros statue of Piccardilly Circus. The Biennale of 2006 in London comes to my mind with all the artists I met and the performances at The Foundry, Orleans House and Sinergy Gallery. Since then, approaching 1st of May, I like to think about my art/life and make a ‘free’ point about it. This time, in Belgium, I participate in ExpoManifestoBrut with a mirror card where miniatures of my previous LB cards make a sort of crown frame.

Sherena Velella I

Category : around the world, exhibitions, performance Apr 14th, 2014

4-5-6 April, in the isle of Ponza, the first part of my participation in “Stracquo” took shape. A “sail” coming from a piece of a fiberglass swimming pool, was given by the Sea, as well as the inspiration of the many velella velella (by the wind sailors) I could find on the beach after a storm. The sail has remained in the Museum of Ponza, waiting for the textile bust of Sherena that I brought home to be completed, for a main exhibition in August.
