Galleria Six è lieta di annunciare la mostra personale di ANGE LECCIA, dal titolo Cars, Marble and Cinder Block.
La sua seconda mostra in galleria con la quale si vuole porre l'attenzione sul lavoro scultoreo ed installativo mediato dal costante rapporto tra luce e immagine: un'immagine che spiazza il nostro sguardo, il nostro pensiero e ci porta ad interrogarci sulla sottile relazione tra uomo, tecnologia ed identità.
Anche in questa mostra, formalmente e concettualmente, le sculture sono correlate ai lavori fotografici Arrangement.
Infatti, la costruzione di uno spazio enigmatico, frapposto tra la vicinanza di due o più oggetti, sembra proprio costituire "il gesto originale" sul quale l'artista ci porta a riflettere.
Ange Leccia sarà presente all'inaugurazione.
Per l'occasione un'opera verrà esposta nel nuovo spazio di Venezia in Calle de la Vida San Marco 2530.
Per il Musée de l'Orangerie di Parigi, Ange Leccia ha creato un allestimento video, (D') Après Monet, che propone di sentire e leggere la polisemia delle Ninfee di Monet a partire dalla storia della genesi di questo capolavoro. La mostra attualmente in corso è visitabile fino al 5 settembre 2022.
Galleria Six is pleased to announce ANGE LECCIA's solo exhibition, Cars, Marble and Cinder Block.
This is his second exhibition at the gallery which focuses on both sculptural and installation works. The pieces are concerned with the constant relationship between light and image: an image that disorients our gaze, our thinking and leads us to question the subtle relationship between man, technology and identity.
In this exhibition the photographic works, Arrangement, are related both formally and conceptually to the sculptures on display.
In fact the construction of an enigmatic space placed between the proximity of two or more objects, seems to constitute 'the original gesture' upon which the artist leads us to reflect.
Ange Leccia will be present at the opening.
For the occasion a work by Ange Leccia will be exhibited in the new space in Venice at Calle de la Vida San Marco 2530.
For the Musée de l'Orangerie, Paris, Ange Leccia has created a video installation, (D') Aprés Monet, which proposes to feel and read the polysemy of Monets Water Lillies from the story of the genesis of this masterpiece. The current exhibition runs until 5 September 2022.
