Venerdì 25 gennaio alle ore 20.00 Adiacenze inaugura la mostra “Nomadic Landscape Elements”, doppia personale di Luca Coclite e Andreco.
Per questo progetto espositivo l’incontro tra i due artisti è stato fortemente voluto e determinante per la creazione di un discorso univoco riguardante il tema della mostra: il paesaggio e la sua fruizione estetica. Rispetto ad un tempo in cui c’erano città, territori e posti geografici differenti, ci troviamo oggi a vivere con modelli unici e stereotipati, che hanno generato flussi di immagini amalgamate e sovrapposto paesaggi differenti.
Sunday July 8th 2012 from 7 p.m. @ Grandma Bistrot,
via dei Corneli 25/27,
Rome (Metro A – Porta Furba)
Jim Avignon, born in 1967 in Berlin, is one of the main characters of the new-pop movement. A lauded and much-respected cult figure in the Techno subculture in Berlin. Currently he lives and works in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Berlin. He started painting when he was 21 years old, exhibiting in techno clubs. His ideas on art were very clear: “I‘d rather sell a thousand images for one dollar, than one image for a thousand dollars.” He demonstrated his commitment to this philosophy when he exhibited his work in Frankfurt in 1995: the public was allowed to take any of the 800 originals on display home for free. This exhibition was aptly named “Get Rich With Art”. At a 1992 exhibition in Kassel, he created one painting each day only to destroy it in the evening. A documentary was made about the exhibition, called “Destroy Art Galleries”. Jim Avignon has proven himself a prolific, provocative and highly original artist. Two of his books are: “Popbones” (1996) and “Busy” (with DAG, 1998). For the Buddy Bear Berlin Show in 2001, he designed a bear that stood in a prominent location on the Kurfürstendamm in Berlin for more than a year.
