MIART – 2024


Mazzoleni is pleased to return to the Established section for the 28th edition of Miart, entitled No Time No Space.

The presentation includes works by Italian and international artists from different generations, challenging traditional conventions of form and representation. Despite differing formal outcomes, the exhibited works condense significant symbolic meanings and references into tangible “objects.”

Carla Accardi, 1924 - 2014
Scacchiera verdeoro, 1974
Casein tempera on canvas
75 x 75 cm - - 29 1/2 x 29 1/2 in
Giuseppe Capogrossi, 1900 - 1972
Superficie 279, 1952
Oil on canvas
72 x 60 cm - - 28 3/8 x 23 5/8 in

In the centenary year of Carla Accardi‘s birth (1924 – 2014), Mazzoleni presents, among other works, Scacchiera verdeoro (1974). The 1970s free movement of the sign, enriched with colour and the result of a complex aesthetic elaboration, is found transformed into modules that punctuate and divide the surface of the work into a narrative chessboard, alternating positive and negative elements, where sign, space and rhythm create the artist’s pictorial alphabet.

From a previous generation, Giuseppe Capogrossi (1900-1972) exhibited his Superfici at the Secolo Gallery in Rome in January 1950, where the sign that would become the emblematic symbol of all his subsequent research first appeared.

Agostino Bonalumi, 1935 - 2013
Rosso, 2008
Acrylic on shaped canvas
100 x 95 cm - 39 3/8 x 37 3/8 in

Following the success of the exhibition Agostino Bonalumi. Il Teatro delle Forze in 2023, a major retrospective marking the 10th anniversary of the artist’s death, a selection of his “estroflessioni” is exhibited. Each work by Bonalumi (1935-2013) arises from a dialogue of internal and external pressures opposed by the surface of the canvas.

Marinella Senatore, 1977
Opera!, 2023
Collage and gold leaf on wood panel
27 x 21.5 cm each - - 10 5/8 x 8 1/2 in each

Forces of a different nature, but equally powerful, drive the research of Marinella Senatore (1977): the energies emanating from her work on communities through the School of Narrative Dance reverberate in all her works. Alongside a new luminous sculpture produced for the fair, a new collage I nuovi mostri (2024), will also be exhibited.

Shigeru Saito, 1974
Intellection, 2023
stainless steel 316, LED 230W
69.6 x 30 x 30 cm - - 27 3/8 x 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 in

In the work of  Shigeru Saito (1974), the close relationship with material and its presence in space are united in their sculptural forms. Saito’s ability to bend materials such as metal and light to the artist’s will is unique in his research. He thus creates works that oscillate between the minimalism of composition and geometric virtuosity, as in the unpublished work Intellection (2023).

Andrea Francolino, b. 1979
, 2024
Concrete, wood and lapis lazuli
106.5 x 106.5 cm - - 41 7/8 x 41 7/8 in
Andrea Francolino, b. 1979
, 2024
Concrete, wood and earth dust
106.5 x 106.5 cm - - 41 7/8 x 41 7/8 in

Andrea Francolino (1979) presents some new works from his concrete series. In his research, the sign fixed on the material shows the affinity between a small fracture close to us and the same patterns on a coastline or in the profile of a mountain range, as in the works M2 (2024), in concrete and gold, lapis lazuli and earth dust.

David Reimondo, b. 1973
Gina Pane, 2024
Book, wood, glass, speakers, mp3 player
64 x 49 x 10 cm - 25 1/4 x 19 1/4 x 4 in

Also showcased at the fair are two new works by David Reimondo (1973), whose solo exhibition, currently ongoing at the Turin gallery, investigates the Cromofonetica, a personal theory of colour that combines phonetics and visual aspects.

Rebecca Moccia, b. 1992
Cold as you are (Tojinbo), 2023
Thermal picture printed on Hahnemühle paper mounted on aluminum, sections of aluminum tubes
85 x 160 cm (overall dimension)

An important work from the Cold As You Are thermal photography series by Rebecca Moccia (1992) will be presented, which was first exhibited in 2023 during the final award ceremony of the Cairo Prize.
