Windows | DAVID REIMONDO: Gesti

David Reimondo

Mazzoleni presents DAVID REIMONDO: Gesti, fourth edition of the Windows format. For the fourth edition of the Windows format, Mazzoleni presents DAVID REIMONDO: Gesti. The Windows series is a solo show concept that can be observed from one of the windows of the gallery Mazzoleni Turin, in Via Cernaia, 1. This year the project will be included in Esterno Notte, promoted by CAMERA, Italian Center for Photography. The event will take place on Thursday, September 30 from 9 pm to 12 am. Over the course of the evening, photographs and videos will animate the walls, streets, houses and buildings of Turin as part of a collective celebration dedicated to the image.
For over a decade, David Reimondo has been drawing new graphemes and phonemes to create a new ecumenical and universal “language” meant to be understood as a general instrument of communication: verbal, physical, luminous, chromatic. Over the years, the artist has used his “symbols” to elaborate heterogeneous works: wood sculptures, verbal-visual, sound and light installations, videos and photographs. For the project “Gesti” (2014-2020), Reimondo collaborated with members of the Ente Nazionale Sordi – Sezione Provinciale di Milano, reinventing his symbols in sign language. After meetings and collective comparisons, some “new gestures” were chosen to compose a phrase often used by the artist in his works: “The muscle of thought is the brain. A procedure of the brain is language. Language defines and indicates the functioning of thought. To see language in action is to see the characteristic organ of the human animal. New languages determine the birth of new worlds“.

DAVID REIMONDO: Gesti will be visible until 23 October from Mazzoleni’s window in Via Cernaia 1.
