ACQUE SOLIDE – Herbert Hamak and Giorgio Vigna

Studio La Città

Description

On 6 September Studio la Città returns to Venice to start off a new exhibition project curated by Marco Meneguzzo. On the island of the Giudecca there will be two solo shows, by the artists Herbert Hamak and Giorgio Vigna, titled Acque Solide: an antithesis that represents the common denominator of the works on show. Both artists work on their material in an almost sculptural manner, counterposing the physicality and weight of the medium – resin for the former, and glass or copper for the latter – against the lightness of the final result, one consisting of transparency, and of games of light and geometry that create oppositions between Hamak’s hollow and angular forms, and the sinuously rounded outlines of Vigna’s works. The leitmotif of the whole show is without a doubt water, the natural element that relates together the works and the surrounding space. Water unavoidably characterises the venue chosen for this show: a former nautical supply shop now turned into an art gallery, surrounded by the sea and part of the new Giudecca Art District, a centre for contemporaneity started up this year concurrently with the 58th Venice Biennale.

 

The inauguration will take place on 6th September 2019 at 11.30am. To join this event, please click here
