Agostino Arrivabene “Vesperbild” @ Galleria Giovanni Bonelli, MilanJuxtapoz // Monday, 12 May 2014
Transfiguration, twilight, and rebirth are the themes in Agostino Arrivabene’s latest works. If you have received your new issue of Juxtapoz, you will have seen a feature of the Italian artists newest works. His exhibition, "Vesperbild” opens at Galleria Giovanni Bonelli, Milan, Italy on May 22, and runs through July 26, 2014.
Vesperbilder are sculpture from 14th century Germany depicting the union of the two extreme stages of death and resurrection. They were the images of waiting, icons of crepuscular meditation, in short a link of union between night and day and vice versa. Arrivabene’s contemporary Vesperbilder reflect on this concept of transition, threshold, and boundary between light and shadow.
