Press Releases - Claudia Gian Ferrari Arte Contemporanea







Claudia Gian Ferrari Arte Contemporanea

via Filippo Corridoni 41
20122 Milano

PRESS RELEASE


Opening on the 15th November 2007 at 6:30 p.m.

Takeo Hanazawa
The Salt


Claudia Gian Ferrari presents the italian solo debut of Takeo Hanazawa (Tokio, 1977).
The artist operates on a strongly disjoined line compared to the ruling -research on technology. As a matter of fact, Hanazawa works mingling and comparing eastern with western culture, history with present-days; his subjects are drawn from his own experience as well as adhering with people’s different ways of expression, visual and literary, ancient or modern.

Fascinated by Antonio Tabucchi’ aphorism “the salt of any interesting civilization is mixture.”, Takeo Hanazawa choses Salt as title for this exhibition, to underline the importance of the melting and the comparison of different cultures.

On show, created expressly for the gallery in via Corridoni, fifteen works on canvas and on paper, of big and small dimensions: frogs, landscapes, still lives; composed with light and bright colors and displaying a finely imaginary, fanciful language.

In collaboration with Side 2 Gallery, Tokio

The exhibition will run until 21 dicembre 2007. Opening hours:
from Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 02 p.m., 03 p.m. to 07p.m.
Saturday just on appointment

PRESS RELEASE

Opening on 19th april at 6:30 p.m.
Solo exhibition of

Luigi Ontani


This is the first time that Luigi Ontani presents his work in the gallery, even though his work should have been shown here many years ago. Alternate vicissitudes have obstructed the project of an exhibition until now and, maybe, owing to the engagement taken with the artist, the scheduling has been long and laborious.
The title that gives meaning to the happening is linked to the idea of working with the material: the marble that classically represents the element of sculpture, from Michelangelo to Arturo Martini.
The history of Gian Ferrari’s Gallery and the relation with the highest art of Twentieth Century have inspired Ontani three sculptures in coloured marble, which represents an amazing tribute, in a very personal manner, to the classical culture of forms and images.
As usual in the work of this gifted artist, he himself is the protagonist, impersonating Armonia, Leda, and Cecov by Martini.
In the post-modern vision where the Maestro interprets new rôles revisiting the past, Ontani uses innovatio as an instrument; he creates new icons from different elements of the classic culture of forms to arrive at a new and dynamic manipulation of images.
The aim of the show is to present a complex itenerary of different perspectives of Ontani’s creative path. He puts together along, with the three marble sculptures, some pictures and then lenticular photos, masks, ceramics, glasses, bronzes and watercolours.
The catalogue, curated by Luca Massimo Barbero and edited by Charta, will be presented in the first week of June with Italian and English texts.


The exhibition is open until 27 july 2007
Opening hours from monday to friday: 10.00 - 14.00 / 15.30 - 19.00
