Di Carne, di Nulla (Both Flesh and Not) @ Antonio Colombo Arte
Currently on display at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea, is Di Carne, di Nulla (Both Flesh and Not), the double personal exhibition of the italian artists 108 and Silvia Argiolas, curated by Luca Beatrice. A double personal exhibition is one of the most difficult challenges for a curator, whether it be about putting similar works together, or thinking in terms of difference or contrast. In this case, however, the show arises from a precise need: Silvia Argiolas and 108 are among the most interesting artists of their generation, the second part of the Seventies, among those using painting and wondering how this language, at times set aside by the contemporary, sometimes, instead, restricted to a form of resistance compared with other media, can continue to have its say in our present.
