with an audio contribution by Pietro Gaglianò and with an audio contribution by Sofia Eliza Bouratsis

THE EXHIBITION:

For her first solo show in Florence the Luxembourg based artist Claudia Passeri presents a series of artworks where the concept of time is interpreted as a tool of control and oppression and as a possible device for liberation.  This exhibition is an evolution from a project presented in Luxembourg at the Centre d’Art de Ville Dudelange In Liicht that was curated by Danielle Igniti in 2015.  “Mangia Mina” includes the primary themes explored by the artist such as: the relationship between the contemporary world and freedom, systems of power, as well as the role of art and the various forms it takes.

Per la sua prima personale a Firenze, Claudia Passeri presenta una serie di opere in cui il tempo emerge come elemento del controllo e strumento del possibile riscatto. Attraverso immagini che alludono allo sfruttamento, simboli della produzione, narrazioni sulla storia dell’arte, l’artista connette tra loro epoche remote e indica una possibile speranza.

La mostra, evoluzione del progetto presentato nel 2015 in Lussemburgo, al Centre d’art – Ville de Dudelange Nei Liicht, a cura di Danielle Igniti, raduna alcuni temi portanti del lavoro dell’artista lussemburghese: il rapporto del mondo contemporaneo con le libertà, i sistemi del potere, il ruolo dell’arte e delle sue forme.
