VALERIO BERRUTI, PAOLO VENTURA, FRANCO GUERZONI AND MARCO TIRELLI – Infour
From June until the end of July, the new exhibition at the Marcorossi contemporary art galleries in Milan, Pietrasanta, Turin and Verona features works by Berruti, Guerzoni, Tirelli and Ventura
In the months of June and July, and until the 15th of August in Pietrasanta, MARCOROSSI artecontemporanea galleries host Infour, a collective exhibition of the work of four artists featured at Artefiera 2022 in Bologna who now exhibit their work together: Valerio Berruti, Franco Guerzoni, Marco Tirelli and Paolo Ventura. The dialogue among them ranges from painting to photography, embracing sculpture. The exhibition in Verona opened at the end of May, followed by the exhibitions in Turin and Milan at the beginning of June, during the Salone del Mobile, when the city is transformed into a glowing capital of interior design, moved from Spring to early June this year. The Pietrasanta exhibition will be open from the 15th of July until the 15th of August in the gallery in Via Garibaldi.
Valerio Berruti, an artist who has been working with the gallery for twenty years
Valerio Berruti, with whom the MARCOROSSI artecontemporanea gallery celebrates a 20-year partnership this year, exhibitions an unusual work previewed at Artefiera in Bologna in the galleries in Milan, Turin and Pietrasanta: a fiberglass work with LED lights underlining the artist’s continuing desire for experimentation, as well as a number of new frescoes inspired by the suspended world of childhood, the time in life when we are all the same and everything has yet to happen.
Paolo Ventura continues the cycle dedicated to “I Ginestra”
The exhibition includes a number of works from Paolo Ventura’s new “I Ginestra” cycle, previewed at the Miart fair in Milan at the end of March. The works arise from a fortuitous find at a flea market, a photo album of two acrobats from the 1930s, which the artist has reworked with his usual photographic collage technique and completed in paint, in a complex process made up of historical research, craftsmanship, manual skill, scenographic composition, photography and painting, producing a highly glamorous mix.
Historical works by Franco Guerzoni
Franco Guerzoni, an artist from Modena whose exhibition “Findings” has just closed amid great acclaim, exhibits a number of historic works including an important work dating back to 2008 as well as other works that have been featured in public exhibitions at Padua’s Scuderie di Palazzo Moroni in 2007, at the Triennale Bovisa in 2008 and at Palazzo Pitti in 2013, investigating the concept of time and the poetics of ruin, adopting a theoretical figure that might be summed up in the concept of “archeology without restoration”.
Marco Tirelli and his refined and mysterious works on paper
Marco Tirelli’s painting is the result of a complex intellectual process which begins with the recording of true facts and goes on to achieve distillation of pure forms and spatial and luminous allusions, repeated and intertwined geometric shapes that are never ends in themselves but become metaphysical in their rigour. The exhibition includes a number of the Roman artist’s sophisticated temperas on paper, dating back to 2007 and emblematic of his research on the relationship between shape, always poised between recognisability and abstraction, and light, taken as a starting point for investigating the possibilities and limits of perception.
