A new exhibition entitled ‘After Marx, April’ curated by Gino Gianuizzi, focusses on the shock value of words and is currently on display at Galerie l’Entrepôt. The exhibition features works of art by Stefano Boccalini and Fabrizio Basso and runs until the 10th of July.
Words themselves have become works of art in an exhibition which conveys social and political messages. Different artistic approaches bring words to life, words which represent the past and the future, depending on who interprets them.
Daniel Boeri, Director of Galerie l’Entrepôt, believes that all words can create messages which completely surpass what has been said or written. This means that every person has the power to interpret words with their own separate ideologies and values.
Gino Gianuizzi, curator of the exhibition, says that when artists work with words, they give words a physicality and a new dimension.
Fabrizio Basso, one of the artists, explains that there is a force to words which can mean different things. Adding an image to text gives him the freedom to imagine and create balance between the image and the words, aligning both. Different words can give specific meaning to different images.
