MARS is delighted to present “Infra White Interference”, Ludovica Gioscia’s solo show curated by Fabio Carnaghi. This is the second in a series of special projects called “My Room On Mars”, in which artists are invited to engage with MARS’s peculiar history as an accidental white cube.
Ludovica Gioscia’s spatial interventions, which are often created from perishable materials such as paper and glue, consider the temporal aura of an artwork, by highlighting its potential to transcend time and space.
Site-specific installations are inherently reflections on time, as they become one with the environment with which they interact. The debris of previous wallpaper installations (“Giant Decollages”) forms connections that question the temporal succession of events, creating a consequential shift. Understood in these terms the debris, particularly when en masse, re-activates an idea of the present that is constantly and infinitely reiterated.
In Gioscia’s work the moment of creative production operates as a medium, capable of continually reshuffling the past and the future. In this process the present becomes the time of revelation, of creative reification and of every new beginning.
The site-specific installation created for MARS is therefore a summary of fragments from the past, a repertoire of potential futures and a portal towards a present that will continue to “present” itself in every elsewhere.
Ludovica Gioscia, born in Rome, has lived and worked in London since 1996. During 2017 Gioscia has had solo shows at Baert Gallery in Los Angeles and Max Mara in London. Previously she has participated in solo and group shows at the South London gallery, Jerwood Space and VITRINE in London, Flag Art Foundation and Salon 94 in New York, The Warhol in Pittsburgh, MACRO and American Academy in Rome, Maraya Art Park in Sharjah and Fundació Miró in Barcelona.
