Formed in Bologna in 2009, young duo Nadia Antonello and Paolo Ghezzi have appeared at prestigious exhibitions across Italy and abroad, including Usina del Arte in Buenos Aires, Petit Bain in Paris, the Moscow Biennale, the Sarajevo Winter Festival, the Biel Center in Beirut, the National Gallery of Bologna and recently the Italian Institute of Culture in Athens.
ANTONELLO GHEZZI has distinguished itself in the crowded contemporary art world by disrupting our expectations of art and finding the extraordinary in the seemingly everyday. ‘Don’t forget the magic’ the artists insist, rehabilitating the beauty of the simple over our fascination with the complex.
The duo presents at TAF rooms the performance ‘Blow Against The Walls’ based on a collective participation moment. The project is a journey around the world, searching for barriers built by humans to keep far away other men or just because one needs to leave and couldn't do it.
<As long as there is enough breath to blow another bubble of soap we will blow away our anger.>> AG
Each participant could blow bubbles against the separation barriers that divide the world, leaving colourful and indelible tracks. The bubbles will impact into the wall and will go through it.
The performance is part of the on-going project BLOW that had shown at Petit Bain in Paris and will be continue in September between Palestine and Israel.
