ART-Exhibition @ xnovodesign

Xnovodesign is proud to announce the ART-Exhibition IMPRESSIONI / Serena Fineschi in our showroom from April 27 to May 31.


Opere su carta 2013-2017 - (Works on paper 2013-2017)

Impressioni is a collection of works on paper made by Serena Fineschi between 2013 and 2017. A summary of the transformation process to which the artist submits the material. A perpetual metamorphosis in and of the material, the archetype of physicality, of the reverse vision and the value of opposites, where unknown experiences assume a renewed un/known shape. Mapping of a body that marks and pursues possible paths or simply imagined. Explosions, craters, wrinkles, holes, lacerations, abrasions and gaps in the material become assonances of physical and emotional experiences, a paradigm of what we are, we feel and we show to the other in a ceaseless flow between material, body and mind.

The gesture

What remains of the gesture is the trace, just as what remains of music is silence, and what remains of painting is nothing more than an area of "immaterial sensibility". In all of Serena Fineschi’s work, the substance of the piece has already elapsed in the action, and all that is left is its reverberation in the material. Spiritual and wolfish, Serena could not be farther from the processes of performance; her gestures have the meaning and the flow of a solitary trial in which the body tries to give a tangible shape to the mind. Weight is form: Serena’s physical capacity, her arms and her hands become form when they are applied to the material. The matter bear the traces of the body’s movement and its staticity, a body which serves as pressure, compression, waiting, an observant mind. Like the gray shadow on a stained sheet after a night of love-making, each of Serena’s pieces opposes abstraction and seeks to focus the mind by way of the body using inert matter as its means. (Pietro Gaglianò. Corpo a Corpo, 2016, ed. Galleria Passaggi, Pisa)
