GR Contemporary art is pleased to present Free Wall Needed, Wall n2.

The wall is a flat vertical surface, can function as barrier or limit.
The walls can delineate public or private boundaries, territorial subdivisions of areas, regions, states or nations.
Free Wall Needed is a curatorial project, takes advantage of the vertical flat surface of the wall. The surface is used and transformed into a support for ideas. A wall that looks like a door, a window that goes beyond the concept of limit. 

 

The project involves the presentation of an artist every two weeks, through a single exhibition or installation of a work, in locations that are always new and unusual.
The idea is to create a platform of artists from different parts of the world, trying to highlight the diversity of the contexts of origin. In fact, through cooperation a knowledge base is created that is the antithesis of the conception of limit, closure and wall. 

The fourth stage of the initiative will be in the Bikini Wax Records, Berlin with Italian photographer and director

GR Contemporary art è lieta di presentarvi il progetto espositivo itinerante Free Wall Needed, Wall n3. 

Il muro è una superficie verticale piatta, può avere la funzione di barriera o limite.
Le mura possono delineare confini pubblici o privati, suddivisioni territoriali di aree, regioni, stati o nazioni.
Free Wall Needed è un progetto curatoriale, che usufruisce della superficie piana verticale del muro. La superficie viene utilizzata e trasformata in supporto d’idee. Un muro che si presenta come una porta, una finestra che va oltre il concetto di limite. 

Il progetto prevede la presentazione di un artista ogni due, tre settimane, attraverso una singola esposizione o installazione di un’opera, in locations sempre inedite e inusuali. L'idea è di creare una piattaforma d’artisti provenienti da diverse parti del mondo, cercando di evidenziare la diversità dei contesti di provenienza. Infatti attraverso la cooperazione si crea una base di conoscenza che è all'antitesi della concezione di limite, chiusura e di muro. 

La terza tappa dell’iniziativa sarà nello storico locale musicale Cacio e Pere situato a due passi da Piazza del Campo: Via dei Termini, 70, Siena.

La video-installazione “Asylum” dell’artista tedesca Chrischa Venus Oswald, sarà visitabile dal 2 al 20 Ottobre 2018. L'artista trae ispirazione da diversi campi come quelli mitologici, poetici e magici. Nelle sue performance incorpora aspetti del simbolismo e psicologia. I lavori fotografici, video, collage misti, ne caratterizzano l’intenzione d’indagare e di riflettere artisticamente la Condizione Umana e il suo comportamento e gli scenari che ne derivano.

Chrischa Venus Oswald 1984, vive e lavora tra Berlino e Lisbona, Germania. 

Ha studiato presso la Diploma Fine Arts, University of Art and Design Linz (A), 

Diverse sono le sue personali e collettive: Berlino, Londra, San Paolo Vincitrice del premio Diesel New Art Award Austria, Photo Category, 2007
