CENTAUROMACHY, Christian Zanotto’s personal exhibition

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 29 gennaio 2018

zanotto christianAmsterdam. Red Stamp Art Gallery is pleased to present CENTAUROMACHY, Christian Zanotto’s personal exhibition the show is curated by Sonia Arata and takes place from the 23rd of December 2017 till the 3rd of February 2018 at the gallery’s location, in the heart of the historical center of Amsterdam.
On display are artworks which, after their premiere at important international events, are exhibited for the first time in the Netherlands: recent works on crystal, videos and an holographic theca which “bring on stage” powerful and enigmatic representations of intense charm; complex compositions emerge from a captivating and mirroring black background with their multiple, precious and refined details.
These virtual sculptures have been created with mastery through a unique use of digital mediums which combines the plasticity and the material physicality of traditional painting and sculptural techniques with the intangibility, the lightness and the ubiquity of the numerical universe; it’s an artistic investigation which involves continuous experimentation and studies on perception and vision, in search of new expressive forms and unprecedented shifts of knowledge, with the elaboration of a visual cosmos that’s constructed as a symbolic alphabet, in whose imaginary past, present and future mix.The common thread is the theme of centauromachy and of battle, a constant tension of conquest and supremacy, a vital tangle of forces and impulses, in the sense of a chromatic-compositional tapestry, where conflict and equilibrium alternate, a field of intricate dynamics of creation and destruction, weaving in which the intertwining of opposites generates varied configurations; the mythological figure of the centaur encompasses the oscillating balance between the mighty instinctual energy, the brutal and uncontrolled force, the thrust of impulses and the light of intellect, rationality, wisdom and discernment: two opposing spheres which, in their union, can give rise to harmonious or scary results.The artworks contain a comprehensive collection of links to contemporary and universal thematics and events, which range from the scale of the self and the individual, to that of the masses, till the sphere of arcane and hieratic entities and obscure powers, allusions to implied directives and hidden plots, in a broad and emblematic outline of various aspects of our era.

Mostra “God o’clock”

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 8 novembre 2010

Milano 25 novembre 2010 alle ore 18:30 presso la Galleria Famiglia Margini personale dell’artista Christian Zanotto, Horlogerie exquise – god is wearing a rolex”Una bellezza dal fascino estremo, al di la’ dello specchio vive nelle grandi pale in cristallo dell’esposizione.
Le figure, collocate in una dimensione immateriale e luminosa, attingono all’immaginario del sacro, del religioso, del mitologico: personaggi possenti ed alati, ieratiche “sacerdotesse”, entità dal corpo perfetto, femminee e mascoline al tempo stesso, ci si presentano, quadro dopo quadro, nella loro nudità o adornate da un elaborato abbigliamento ricco di preziosi dettagli.
Il grande cristallo e’ un congelato specchio nero del contemporaneo: le autoritarie figure, intoccabili nella loro sfera di ricchezza e potere, governano implacabili e squisiti meccanismi ad orologeria, che ci rendono carni psicologicamente vincolate ai superiori dogmi di automatismi inconsci. L’alternativa e’ quella di divenire entità e vivere la consapevolezza che ci fa essere; la chance è quella di intraprendere un cammino filosofico e spirituale, alla ricerca di risposte non più aliene, ma uniche e personali. (christian zanotto, in-extortio)
