Matter, Form, Color - a Dance of Presences and Absences with a Young Trio
#Art

The Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, for the second event of the exhibition calendar of 2021 of the Project Room - “observatory” project dedicated to the most recent developments in the international artistic panorama this year, entrusted to guest curator Eva Fabbris - presents the collective exhibition Rosa in Mano. Three artists come face to face, using different yet complementary languages. The points of view and material mirror each other in the works of Nevine Mahmoud and Margherita Raso. Meanwhile, the third artist revolves around the context or, rather, the display staged by the most performative artist of the group, Derek MF Di Fabio, who offers his contribution in the form of a workshop. The intention of the curator, along with the works on display in this collective, is to create “a dance of positions and physical contact; a comparison between presences and absences, insides and parts, colours and sensations”. The title leads into the artistic spectacle of the exhibition. It’s Pink. Like the colour of skin and of poetry, like the colour of the joy of touch. Thus, the smooth stones sculpted like idealised fragments of the female body by Mahmoud materialistically encounter the hanging drapes of Raso and, guided by the poetic attentions of Di Fabio, focused on the situation more than on the artistic object itself, open up a whole realm of unexpected possibilities for listening, interpreting and living.
