Raw Materials. Large-scale sculptures and installations on matter in Senigallia.

The Rocca Roveresca in Senigallia hosts the exhibition Materie prime. Contemporary Italian Artists Between Earth and Light, featuring large-scale works with and about matter.

At the Rocca Roveresca in Senigallia, the exhibition Materie prime will run from September 6 to October 27, 2019. Contemporary Italian Artists Between Earth and Light.

About seventy works, particularly large-scale sculptures and installations, by artists belonging to different generations, but united by a work conducted with and on matter, will be on display; among the artists are Carlo Bernardini, Renata Boero, Giovanni Campus, Riccardo De Marchi, Emanuela Fiorelli, Franco Mazzucchelli, Nunzio, Paola Pezzi, Pino Pinelli, Paolo Radi, Arcangelo Sassolino, Paolo Scirpa, Giuseppe Spagnulo, Giuseppe Uncini and Grazia Varisco.

Each artist used the material most characteristic of his or her artistic path: thus, works in terracotta, concrete, iron, wood, lead, rubber and light are present. The very title of the exhibition refers not only to matter, but also to materials; matter is what makes up everything, concrete or abstract, physical or ideal, while material is the matter that is applied, used.

“Visual art, from the historical avant-gardes to the present day, alongside traditional materials such as canvas, panel, oil, marble, bronze, plaster, and so on, has made use of materials of the most and anomalous, from scraps to common objects, from coal to power tools, from rags to glass and so on, so much so that we can say, from Duchamp onward, that every ”material“ can be functional in the creation of the work of art,” explains one of the curators, Giorgio Bonomi.

The exhibition is curated by Giorgio Bonomi, Francesco Tedeschi and Matteo Galbiati and is promoted by the City of Senigallia in collaboration with the Polo Museale delle Marche.
