'Fall' art exhibition by Valentina Gelain, November 25 - December 16 2018
Black Box Genesis is pleased to present the 2nd art exhibition of Valentina Gelain _ 'Fall', Vaasa (Finland), from 25th November to 16th December 2018.
The exhibition includes six photographic prints on canvas with black thread intervention, six prints of photographic elaborations on cardboard with acrylic intervention and photographic elaborations transmitted on monitors. The natural settings are landscapes photographed in the province of Belluno, Italy, and near the city of Vaasa, Finland.
The exhibition will transport you to a different plan: the oneiric and surreal, where there will be human sensations with all their terrible beauty
Nothing to explain. Feel.
Performance 'Deep smoke' & Skeleton _ Burning Art Festival 2018, Art Factory Malakta
''Wax ﬂowing down to a surface that runs upward. Smoke tracing signs on paper forming arabesques of a lost memory.
Seal on the sepulcher where the unconscious glows.
Pyramid from which an eye peers from the darkness.
Fire ﬂames, while time burns .''
Live performance during which we interact with the space and the viewer, using an installation and also our body. Candles will be used as a basic object to dialogue with the paper surface that will allow us to give body to the work that will complete its 'being' with the encounter of human corporeity.
#dontbeafraidtoopenthebox is not only an advertising idea to break the barriers of space to communicate Black Box Genesis with people and the rest of the world, but also a fun and dynamic way to experience social media! With this amusing 'word of mouth' game, people feel themselves to be protagonists in the first person and can try to express their personal creativity!
The basic text
Don't be afraid to open the box!
Think creative, think positive, think big! All that you need is inside the box! From Finland to XXX, all over the world. I support this amazing idea, born from a couple of friends of mine and based in Finland ( #vaasa )! They are spreading their creativity and their art-based knowledge around Europe, and they are searching for new challenges where to express their passion! Wanna know more? Have a look at their website and get in touch with them! #dontbeafraidtoopenthebox#blackboxgenesis #art #travellingart#travellingartists #artchallenges#thinkcreative #finland #vaasa #XXX #XXX #youngartists #artsupporter#achievinggoals #artgoals #creativeattitude#artproject
Night of Arts_ Vaasa, August 9th 2018
For this event We presented to the public 'Living Painting', a performance of body painting and more! We created this scenario where the two protagonists and the painter started the performance. The artist has finished in real-time painting the hands of the two characters, so people could also attend a live painting experience. We decided to create this living picture for our first Vaasa 'Night of Art' to communicate more directly with the public and have fun with it. The strongest moment of interactivity was when We decided to let the two protagonists 'escape' from the picture to go out on the city streets and had a tea in the 'Effati Carpet' shop, where one of the windows had been set up to continue the performance . Black Box Genesis thanks for the collaboration: Susanne Malmi (Mosaic consulting) & Reza Effati (Effati Carpet).
Black Box Genesis is pleased to present the personal art exhibition of Valentina Gelain _ 'Panismo', Vaasa (Finland), from 7th to 22th July 2018.
This artistic cycle, started from 2014 until 2016, is called panism which literally means 'fusion with nature'.
The exhibition consists of an installation, prints in traditional graphics, photographs showing the installation of a sculpture in the woods, video art, drawings and watercolors.
- With this exhibition I want to introduce myself to Vaasa. This is why I presented my work done in Italy over the past few years. After people get to know me a bit, I will be ready to present my new artworks -
'Panismo' art exhibition by Valentina Gelain, June 07 - July 22 2018
'Memento mori' & 'African girl portrait', 2018
'Memento mori' is an artistic work carried out on plastic supports spread among the trees of the Finnish forest, near the city of Vaasa in May 2018. This experimentation was photographed to create a stop motion video and watercolors show the chosen subjects. This video performance was designed for the first day of the inauguration of the Studio.
The portrait of the African model was performed on the second day of inauguration in a live painting performance. The girl was chosen for the interesting features of the face and hair.
Black Box Office: renovation, decoration and inauguration
Black Box Genesis Art Studio has been completely renewed by our team and also the marketing operation and the graphic part has been taken care of by us.
We have personally dealt with the inauguration of the space lasting two days. In these two days, two artistic performances were conceived and realized exclusively for the inauguration: a video performance and a live painting performance, all accompanied by preparatory sketches and watercolors.
