Veronica Tanzi al BOCS, Catania

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 24 marzo 2010

Via Grimaldi è il progetto che l’artista Veronica Tanzi, artist-in-residence nei mesi di marzo-aprile, presenta presso lo spazio BOCS di Catania che la ospita in mostra dal prossimo 10 aprile fino al 15 maggio 2010. Da sempre gli artisti operano entro i margini tra realtà e verità, e da sempre il creatore di immagini artistiche manifesta le sue visioni come contrasto alla realtà, al fine di proporre la sua morfologia di verità. È una forma di necessario estraniamento, cui anche VT fa riferimento, allorquando decide di concentrare il suo progetto sviluppato in situ attorno alla via Grimaldi, quartiere dov’è ubicato lo spazio espositivo. L’opera di VT attinge alla tradizione della performance, processo creativo che gli permette di ragionare sulle metamorfosi dell’IO in sé, del suo rapportarsi con la realtà che la circonda e ch’essa vive quotidianamente in un personale tutto femminile e femminista. ‘La Famiglia’, come realtà fondamentale e fondante del pensiero borghese, costituisce il tema originale della sua installazione; una mise en scène contestuale che ripercorre i luoghi dell’apparenza, del rapporto di forza e del senso di interferenza e colp(evolezz)a di una società borghese dalle origini giudaico-cristiane. (Mario Casanova_marzo 2010)
VIA GRIMALDI is the project that the artist Veronica Tanzi, artist-in-residence from March to April, is presenting at BOCS of Catania. The exhibition runs from the 10th of April to the 15th of May 2010. Artists always work crossing the borders between reality and truth, and the creator of artistic images always shows his visions in opposition to reality, suggesting his own morphology of truth. It is a necessary way of estrangeing, to which also Veronica Tanzi refers when she focuses her project on Via Grimaldi, where the exhibition itself takes place. Veronica Tanzi’s work draws from the tradition of performance; a creative process that enables the reflection on the metamorphosis of the ego itself. The reflection also encompasses the surrounding reality that the artist lives every day in a feminine and feminist way. The main theme of the artist’s installation is “the family”, seen as a fundamental reality and establishment of the bourgeois’ thought. A contextual mise en scène that traces the places of appearance, the strong relationship and the feeling of interference and state of guilt of a bourgeoisie society with Jewish-Christian origins. Veronica Tanzi recreates “The Family” through everyday objects, clothes, hang out washings, reviewed photo albums, wardrobes containing bright and inner geographies, which are both unspoken and whispered. Inside this limbic place, dresses, shoes and other elements recalling man’s historical and social identification, loose their function, freezing out from their bodies through the temporal obliteration given by the allusive approach of the artist. The artist’ sensitive and personal eye makes us think about the anthropology of the ceremony, where roles of intimate freedom and identity definitions are played. (tanzi)

Landscaping Ophelia

Landscaping OpheliaLandscaping Ophelia1CACT Bellinzona_Centro d’Arte Contemporanea Ticino_Switzerland 26 September – 1 November 2009 Fri-Sat-Sun_2.00-6.00 p.m. (or by appointment) Vernissage_Saturday 26 September 2009 at 5.30 p.m. Landscaping Ophelia is the title of the thematic exhibition that VERONICA TANZI (1975) is holding at the Bellinzona location of the Centre of Contemporary Art in Canton Ticino. The topics that this Swiss artist has been developing for some time are linked unequivocally with the female figure and its many intimate facets: identity and gender, but also sentiment and suffering. She achieves this by revisiting an important icon of literature and theatre, Ophelia, the sixteenth-century female character who, as legend has it, committed suicide for unrequited love by drowning herself. Ophelia is an important hinge character, who was transformed and transcended by the English playwright William Shakespeare in his intense tragedy Hamlet. The elements in that tale, which was an immediate popular success, with its highly symbolic value, have all been picked up here by the artist for an installation that stretches to occupy the five rooms at the CACT with works custom-produced for the exhibition, which the curator has applied in the exhibition design to suggest the topic’s dramatic and theatrical poetry. In the first room, three photographic images of Ophelia immersed/suspended naked in water, her body coldly lifeless, inserted between three monitors, standing for the journey within the cold immobility of the end, constitute the introduction to the exhibition. These few, bare elements are decisive for the narrative development that Veronica Tanzi wants to attribute to the entire exhibition, as water, death and lightness of weight give the whole story a density of fairy-tale and regressive suspense, of endless and playful love, of suffering and of the non-death of sentiment as a dimension of uniquely ecstatic experience beyond the limits set by existence.
