- Et in Terra

Curated by Beatrice Burati Anderson

‘Is it not all art about putting into image, that is highlighting, exactly what in the Earth is hidden? Is art the event in which background appears to shake us, to agitate us, to make us act and think?’

ARTISTS

Francesco Candeloro

Francesco Candeloro was born in 1974 in Venice, city where he studied and graduated from the Fine Arts Academy and in which he currently lives and works.
The artist places at the core of his very personal research the dimensions of light and colour, sign and shape, proportion, rhythm and movement and uses them as keys to deepen spatial and temporal dynamics. For Candeloro “art is a vision of the time”, vision which he translates through the transparencies of the coloured plexiglass, his elective and most congenial material, employed for the realization of the various types of artworks of his articulated production.

Anita Sieff

Her investigation is on love as feeling to be discovered, as motivation to act and as the understanding of the implication which drives humanity in its process towards awareness. It is the going beyond the self to encounter the other, that creates relationship. The relationship is therefore seen as a common space, a kind of laboratory  where, without loosing our identity, we aspire to communion.
