For the first time Daniele Puppi has his own personal exhibition in Milan at Hangar Bicocca.
From January 30th till March 9th, in the Contemporary Art space it will be possible to admire his brand new site-specific project called Fatica 16 (Fatigue 16), as in his previous “fatigues” Daniele Puppi has always been dealing with art and space, and with space we do not mean a mere area but an interacting form participating actively as the base for every artwork.
Puppi uses his own body to measure, expand and dilate the space in a determinate amount of time, filming everything and then setting up brilliant video -sound installations. This concept is the core of his art.
So the audience will not only see the exhibition but participate to it, being surrounded and encompassed by a new disiorentated dimension, a new multisentitive experience to recognize the space, destructured and then rebuilt by the artist.
It’s very interesting to see what Daniele Puppi has obtained from Hangar Bicocca: bricks, concrete and sheets were the instruments he used to unveil the secret soul of that space.
He’s been working on it for sixteen days in a row to experiment with all the possibilities the hangar, looking just like a factory, gave him. He’s been fighting agains bricks and iron sheets, experimenting with the space, using walls in unusual ways , filming his continuous face-to-face duel with the Hangar. The duel ends up with the final fatigue, that determinate movement that projected gives birth to the heart of his work, as the synthesis of all possible actions and movements that could have been done in that same space.
We could spread rivers of ink writing about it, but this is not the kind of art you write about, this is the kind of art that needs to be seen and experienced.Book Mark it-> del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList Tags: , Art, contemporary art, daniele puppi, hangar bicocca, Milan
