Arte Fiera Bologna 2020
24-26 January 2020
Hall 18 - Stand C 14
The A arte Invernizzi gallery presents at Arte Fiera Bologna 2020 a solo exhibition by Mario Nigro.
Works on paper, from the late 1940s, which act as workshop for the growth of his peculiar career, and works on canvas from the “Spazio totale” (“Total Space”) series, made in the late 1950s, will be on show at the stand. They will be presented alongside pieces from the “Collages vibratili” (“Vibratory Collages”) series, dating from the early 1960s, which the artist showed at the Venice Biennale in 1964.
The works on paper delineate Nigro’s peculiar abstract language, which reveal a dynamic use of colour, linked to musical suggestions with constructive tensions.
In the “Collages vibratili”, as in the artistic research behind the “Spazio totale”, Mario Nigro investigates progressions, expansions, and tensions in a maze of grids and reticulations. In the “Collages”, on the other hand, the artist uses vibration as a decisive element in creating the structure and surface, which are traversed by fresh, unexpected trajectories.
The works on display create a dialogue between the stratification of the reticulations in “Spazio totale” and the lively, multi-centred structuring of the “Collages vibratili”.
