108 PASSAGGI CONCRETI @ Studio D'Ars Milano

 
Parentesi Aperte: 108
Passaggi Concreti
a cura di Alessandra Ioalé

Dal 12 dicembre al 13 gennaio 2015
Opening 12 dicembre ore 18
Studio D’Ars Milano

Il 12 dicembre alla Galleria Studio D’Ars di Milano, inaugura Passaggi Concreti, la seconda personale del ciclo Parentesi Aperte dedicata all’artista italiano 108 a cura di Alessandra Ioalé. L’artista in questa occasione presenta un corpus di opere su carta, tela, video e installazione in cui centrale è la rappresentazione di grandi megaliti, che riportano in sé i segni di un passato antico, rivisitati da una nuova sperimentazione delle gamme cromatiche in rapporto a ogni forma sviluppata e al significato di ogni colore. Passaggi Concreti, appunto, attraverso cui conoscere l’ignoto di questo mondo, e davanti a cui 108 si pone in ascolto, per restituirne il suono. Una grande apertura e sensibilità spingono infatti l’artista a non smettere mai di cercare e trovare la forma finale di ciò che non ha mai avuto forma ed entrare in contatto con il proprio inconscio, influenzato dall’enviroment naturale, in cui convivono forme organiche e artificiali primitive, che suscitano in lui urgenze espressive più importanti e che lo portano ad essere uno dei massimi esponenti del post-graffitismo europeo.

108
108 (Guido Bisagni, 1978) is an Italian artist in the field of street art and contemporary art from Alessandria. 108 has moved from working in traditional graffiti art to painting large and mysterious figures that invade public spaces. He was the first writer to use numbers instead of letters for his name. He started to work when he was a child on the streets of Alessandria, and used different names. His work has appeared on the streets of Milan, Paris, London, Berlin, and New York City. His first works known by people are enigmatic “blob”-like yellow shapes. It is his firm intention to make visual chaos. His new works are labyrinths, dead trees, non figurative 3D objects and installations, but especially black and gloomy shapes, becoming one of the biggest and influential artists in graffiti abstractism. In the last years, he took part in a lot of international exhibitions: Nusign 2.4 in Paris, Urban Edge Show in Milano, Segundo and Tercer Asalto in Zaragoza and, in 2007 he was invited to join the project called Walls inside the Biennale di Venezia. During March 2008 he was invited to join Nomadaz (a show curated by Pablo Aravena) in Los Angeles with Eltono, Dem, Microbo and other artists to represent Europe in the U.S.A. 108’s doomy black abstractions are engaging and challenging in equal measure. Whether it be within the confines of a small room in the abandoned monastery, where the large triangular constructions are most effective and have the effect of warping and playing with the room’s dimensions as the viewer attempts to back away and comprehend the pieces, or as a surreal floating void on a wall beside a busy road.
