RUFFIANA LA MAFALDA E LA LOREDANA DEL VILLAGGIO
November 7, 2017 - March 18, 2018, Collezione Giuseppe Iannaccone
On Tuesday November 7, a personal exhibition Ruffiana la Mafalda e La Loredana del villaggio by Beatrice Marchi (Varese, 1986) will be open to the public for a special visit: a series of new paintings interact with objects, sculptures, videos, photographs and paintings “staging”, as written by the curator in the catalogue, “a journey into the future with eyes immersed within contemporary society in which the artist speaks of the vulnerability of the human soul, unveiling the central female characters chasing from one painting to another, through a series of endless appearances and metamorphoses. Katie, Fox, Mafalda, Loredana, Susy, Isa B are a group of friends on the brink between two worlds: the real world and the art world, part child and part adult, part animal and part human, little girls that want to be women, women that want to be men. In some cases these characters wear a prosthesis, as a metaphor of a red clown nose”. Characters – as seen in the painting Il Caffé by Arnaldo Badodi, to which the young artist makes an indirect tribute, move in a world of incommunicability, revealing the loneliness of everyday life, where the scenes continuously repeat themselves, without the occurrence of anything concrete.
(...) Within the dedicated area of Mr. Iannaccone’s legal firm, and positioned among the works of Collezione Giuseppe Iannaccone, set up specifically for the event, we can find the new works of Beatrice Marchi. The works, in dialogue with the faces and subjects that reside in this space, create an intense exchange between the characters and their stories sharing common landscapes and atmospheres.
