Opere in dialogo delle artiste Marta Martino e Anne Grebby.
La prima edizione della rassegna dal titolo IN CONVERSATION, indaga la relazione dell’essere umano all’interno di un tutto più ampio e propone una riflessione sul tema dell’individuo e della sua immagine nel mondo contemporaneo.
La mostra presenta le opere simboliche ed emotive di Anne Grebby, costruite attraverso marcature complesse, stratificazioni con sottese connessioni letterarie, insieme al lavoro di Marta Martino, che applica una metodologia di sottrazione e astrazione attraverso la ripetizione compulsiva di singoli soggetti.
Works in dialogue by artists Marta Martino and Anne Grebby.
The first edition of the series entitled IN CONVERSATION, investigates the relationship of the human being within a wider whole and proposes a reflection on the theme of the individual and his image in the contemporary world.
The exhibition presents the symbolic and emotive works of Anne Grebby, which are constructed through complex markings, stratifications with underlying literary connections, together with works by Marta Martino, who applies a methodology of subtraction and abstraction through the compulsive repetition of individual subjects.
a narrow point of view or just a *wrong* belief
how do we decide what’s real?
questioning the *truth*
- the part and the whole - the whole by its parts
the body is not there
but is life there? in the thought of life?
in the thought of a body?
do thoughts have vision?
[*human presence* on earth]

there's nothing clear here
a tyrant and a giver
there's no room left for mercy
hands that take
hands that give
hands that hide
hands to cover the stains
the stains of the past
a past of shame
mutate and finally find shelter
this is my gift
doing the work for you
till next time

Being the end of being, the end of being the being one.
The end of the one being in the beginning, being here now, I am holding my breath. I will not breathe in or out.
I am stopping.
The water in coral, the fire in wood,
The end of being the beginning.
Down into the soft bowl, cupped by edge, backed by bone,
I am holding my breath.
