Milan, art residency program for unpublished projects kicks off

Four artists are participating in the Milan Summer In residency program, proposed by FuturDome A-I-R. Each will create unpublished projects.

FuturDome A-I-R, Artist In Residence, presents Summer In, an artistic residency program that will grant access to its spaces to four Italian artists from May 18 to July 31, 2020: these artists, according to different compositional and technical requirements, will work in four different rooms of the building.

The exhibition and working spaces of the building at 6 Via Giovanni Paisiello will not be accessible to the public, but will allow the artists to reside and stay there. The residency will allow curators, collectors, journalists, but also outside visitors to be able to witness by appointment both live and via social channels Instagram and Facebook the elaboration of the four unpublished projects.

Silvia Hell (1983, Bolzano), Domenico Antonio Mancini (1980, Naples), Fabrizio Perghem (1981, Rovereto) and Sara Ravelli (1993, Crema) will have the opportunity to develop new works that will be part of an initial approach and familiarization with the spaces of FuturDome, in view of future monographic exhibition projects.
During the residency, the four artists will have the opportunity to use every element of the building and every material they can appropriate, also relying, for their productions, on the different companies that have interacted, in recent years, with FuturDome.

At the end of the residency, the final works will be presented, which will have been punctuated and enriched by six different meetings, scheduled every ten days, with different professionals including: Diego Bergamaschi (collector, art manager), Elena Bordignon (director ATP Diary), Barbara Casavecchia (lecturer, curator, critic), Annette Hofmann (art dealer, researcher), Claudia Santeroni (curator, coordinator of The Blank), Mauro Mattei (collector, founder of MMAT), Maria Chiara Valacchi (critic, curator).

Following are the dates of the meetings between artists and professionals: Friday, May 29; Wednesday, June 10; Thursday, June 18; Tuesday, June 30; Thursday, July 9; Tuesday, July 21; and Thursday, July 30.

Summer In, in the spaces of FuturDome, is intended to be a dedicated isolation program.

Silvia Hell devotes herself to a research on light, Domenico Antonio Mancini to a project of relocating his studio, Fabrizio Perghem makes asound installation, and Sara Ravelli performs new sculptures .

Silvia Hell’s (1983, Bolzano) research is situated in actions and ways of thinking, establishing forms of tension within the method, between the conventional objectivity of the referent and original models of presentation and formalization of the Real. The resulting work proceeds through points of balance and testing, oscillating at opposite extremes of thought and systems. His paths of insight are subject to a political re-mapping aimed at conveying a spectrum of values in a single aesthetic form with the clarity and simplicity of a visual intuition.

Interested in the transformation of the everyday and historical memory into a synaesthetic experience, Domenico Antonio Mancini (1980, Naples) combines a ’media analysis with reflection on socio-political and bio-political issues. For the artist, art always responds to the urgency to intervene, individually and collectively, in everyday reality. Even in the most recent pictorial series related to the historical memory of specific places, landscape painting offers itself as an alienating experience not only on a linguistic level.

The sculptural interventions of Fabrizio Perghem (Rovereto,1981) trigger human and material processes through the activation of indigenous resources. His language develops the receptive capacities of sculpture to gather the dispersed energies of the everyday and the dialectal. This practice has generated in the author a particular attention to what lies between artistic experience and its narrative. In the absence of plastic works, he experiments with the role of orality in the evolution of sculpture, the construction and demolition of its meaning, and the propagation of its existence.

With research initially developed from an interest in the photographic medium and its communicative potential, the work of Sara Ravelli (1993, Crema) finds its foundation in a fascination with the sentimental charge of objects and the idea of compromised functionality. The formal consequence of this tension between artifact and emotionality has become a motive to reflect deeply on the notion of three-dimensionality: starting from questions related to the image, she has arrived at a sculptural language.
