The exhibition will feature the work of all its represented artists up-to-date: Ivana Adaime Makac, Jamie Allen, Tomislav Brajnović, Sarah Ciracì, Baptiste Debombourg, Gabriele Di Matteo, Federico Luger, Brian Montuori, Steve Piccolo, Anja Puntari, Axel Straschnoy and Massimiliano Viel.
ECCENTRIC is also delighted to have Francesco Jodice as invited artist, courtesy Galleria Michela Rizzo, Venice.
Finally, ECCENTRIC announces the launch of its section Minority Report with the artist Carlo Gambirasio.
ECCENTRIC is a flexible dispositive with no definite location. Naturalia et artificialia will take place in the space MyOwnGallery at Superstudio Più, via Tortona 27, Milano, from October 12 through the 21.
The title of the exhibition is Naturalia et artificialia, both of the categories with which the wonders exhibited in the cabinets of curiosities during the Renaissance were classified.
In the context of this exhibition both concepts work as the common thread that brings together the diverse topics addressed by featured the artists and artworks. All of them, in one way or the other, pose questions about issues that have to do either with nature, or with artifice and technology, and often with both. However, isn’t this differentiation in itself artificial, and even false? Because there is no nature without artifice—without the artificial filter of culture—nor technology or artifice which doesn’t participate of nature.
Naturalia et articifialia is realised with the generous support of PERFORMANT, and EXEO Consulting.
