Dripping Cavities

Dripping Cavities. Title that heralds in a whispered but vibrant vision the two works presented, evoking connections among their peculiarities.
A pragmatic research, outlined by traces and testimonies, contrasts with a more abstract analysis, driven by feelings... an exploratory state corresponds to a wandering motion.

However, elements of a common stage also emerge in the profiling of this individual narrative that intertwine by exchanging incipit of content with explicit of form.

In the exhibition the artist Bekim Hasaj is presenting the ungoing investigation 'Scanning Landscape', through which he reconsiders to represent the landscape out of its conventional-historical frames, followed the urgency to know and then impress the intimate relationship with the surrounding in a visual yet original and personal abstraction.

 

The multidisciplinary body of work 'The Grey Hour' by Valentina Gelain, highlights how we can relate emotionally to the environment to express our inner mental and emotive states, showing a frame of mind connected to apathy, the inability to act, the difficulty of self-relating and, specifically, the dissociative disorders.


The two projects were inspired, finding expression and concreteness, by the territories and spaces of Ostrobothnia, in 2021. The two works, echoing each other and finding resonance in their duality, open a dialogue that founds its voice in the areas where they were implemented. The geographical aspect and the exploratory/experimental character that will be the focus of the art exhibition are therefore decisive.
All this is accentuated by the figure of the two artists who, through a plurality of mediums and techniques, offer a varied scenario of content and form.
Encouraging dialogue and confrontation on the awareness of the other and ourselves, finding expression in the environment and its nuances; bringing out the territory through perceptions, colours, shapes, patterns that, by concretizing the almost/now invisible, refresh the viewer's gaze with renewed curiosity.

Upcoming exhibitions:

- Vaasa City Art Gallery, Coordinator Silvia Rinne, Vaasa, Finland, November 2023-January 2024.
