The Flat - Massimo Carasi

The gallery first opened in Mantua in 1987, from an idea of Massimo Carasi and Antonella Magalini. In 1989, they presented their first important solo show of the artist Giuseppe Penone, which featured 24 works on A4 paper that depicted the marks of pressed herbs and eleven human nail scratches in plaster.
Until 2001, the gallery organized over one hundred exhibitions (solo and group shows) in the Mantua based gallery as well as in public spaces. Some of these artists included: Botto & Bruno (Venice Biennial 2001), Marco Neri (Venice Biennial 2001), Sara Rossi (Venice Biennial 2003), Loris Cecchin, etc.

In 2002, the gallery moved to Milan and Daniela Barbieri became the third partner. The exposition space radically changed from a centrally positioned gallery in the historical Art town of Mantua, to an apartment in the centre of Milan. The new gallery, called The Flat, began to show emerging international artists such as: Oliver Pietsch (video), Kirstine Roepstorff (installation) Mario Rizzi (Relational Art), Dimitrios Antonitsis (photography), Anila Rubiku (embroidery on paper), as well as Italian artists lik...

Opening exhibition : Thursday 21 November from 6.30PM

In the myth of Cain and Abel, the two brothers symbolically represent two different ways of living : one in time and the other in space (1). We live the metaphorical condition of Cain and his fratricide. We live in an age where time cancels out space. Indeed, Abel represents the principle of the constant expansion of space – where nothing is permanent, where there is no opportunity for human artifice and no possibility of a systematic industrial exploitation of its resources. With the symbolic murder of Abel, men started attributing preeminence to time, thereby developing a culture in which life was organized and restricted to infinite fragments, seasons and cycles, while space was given limited importance and considered merely as a resource.

In line with these ideas, I decided to produce images of spaces composed of lands, skies and seas: these are the basic elements that we lack today and for this reason they have become the most expressive. Looking at these works, their inter... [ Read all ]
