ICI Londra, il 6 aprile Artist Talk: Shaping Landscapes con Giulia Piscitelli, Brian Crass e Lavinia Filippi

Moderated by Ilaria Puri Purini.

Thinking of landscape both as a physical location and an emotional container means to deal with the relation between space, private memories and collective histories. This talk will investigate how artistic work can be made in response to a place. Throughout the evening, Giulia Piscitelli, a Neapolitan based artist, will introduce her new series – Aureole (Nimbuses) – a work realized using golden leaf on geographical maps dating from 1930 to 1957 and currently exhibited at Frith Street. These maps offer a possibility to think poetically about the changes that humans made to borders during history.

Curator Brian Cass, the Head of Collections at the Towner Art Gallery in Eastourne, will talk about his experience in acquiring works related to landscape for the museum, taking as an example the paintings of British artist Jessica Warboys, which are directly made with and by the sea, each time working in a specific geographical context that shapes and forms her canvases. From Warboys' wild coastlines of England to the urban landscape of Piscitelli's Naples, the specificity of making work on site will be explored by the panelists also in conversation with Lavinia Filippi, co-founder and co-director of Translocalia, a research-based project that operates by connecting different localities through site-specific art interventions.

The evening will be moderated by Ilaria Puri Purini, Curator of Programmes at the Contemporary Art Society.
