The Grammar of Space According to Grazia Varisco

The Grammar of Space According to Grazia Varisco
#Exhibitions

The exhibition entitled Grazia Varisco. Il Caso. Tra le Pieghe della Mente explores the themes of the research of the Milanese artist according to the various types of work, from the early 1960s to more recent pieces. The public is invited to pay particular attention to one hall in the itinerary, dedicated to reconstructing a historical personal exhibition of the artist at the Galleria Schwarz in Milan in 1969. This represented a moment of synthesis for Varisco, regarding her entire period dedicated to kinetic art. A year earlier, in 1968, the last collective exhibition of Gruppo T (where “T” stands for “tempo” or “time”) which never actually officially disbanded, took place. The group, to which Grazia Varisco belonged, was created in Milan in October of 1959 under the initiative of Giovanni Anceschi, Davide Boriani, Gianni Colombo and Gabriele Devecchi. With the term Miriorama (“infinite visions”, roughly translated), these artists defined the poetics of their language, focused on the idea of varying images across temporal sequences. With the end of this experience in the mid-‘60s, Varisco began experimenting and exhibiting on her own. Starting with her first explorations of kinetic and programmed art, the work of the artist who focused on the grammar of space, underwent constant evolution with experiments regarding various themes that put space in relation to time, randomness in relation to planning and which were presented in various unconventional forms.
