Our "Contemporary Renaissance" project reaches a new stage. Our galleries in Venezia are hosting the new art by Giulio Rigoni, and his solo show is also on at ART@Hilton (at the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice curated by the Giudecca 795 Art Gallery) presenting three main new works. The first is about Orpheus, the legendary musician, poet, and prophet. Artist par excellence, demon of nature, a shaman who was able to enchant every living being and even the stones with his music — all used to bring his beloved Eurydice back from the underworld — Orpheus is an archetypical figure portrayed in poetry, film, opera, music, and painting. In the myth of the 50 Argonauts, only Orpheus’s music could move their boat from the port where it had been forcibly stopped for months. According to the Greeks, Orpheus is the founder and prophet of the Orphic mysteries, which place him in a suspended dimension that is evoked by Rigoni's paintings. The polyptych "Distant Lands" shown at the Dakar Biennale, represents the meeting of Europe (Venice) and Africa, depicting Africa from a personal, westernised point of view but one that enhances both fantasy and ancestry to create a universal language: Africa presented as a real experience and as a point of departure for human history that is able to reflect and awaken all our visions and imagination. The third main work of the exhibition is a fantasy scene in which the artist plays with the imagination, the Venetian atmosphere, and a large protective figure.
The ART@Hilton show can be visited daily at the Hilton Hotel, Giudecca 810, from 9am to 11pm in the Campiello Lounge
The exhibiting programme at the gallery and for ART@Hilton on the occasion of the Biennale and the International Expo 2015 has started with the solo show of the 22 years old Gjon Jakaj, from Kosovo, who fled the war with his family ad, as a result of this experience, focused on the joy of living, leading the viewer to the discovery of small, priceless moments. Much of his photographic work on display is inspired by bread, imbued with strong symbolic meaning. Giudecca 795 chose to present these works in Venezia inside the historic former mills where they enhance the connection between past and present. The works are now on show at the gallery, together with Jakaj's reportage of the opening of the Expo 2015. And the NOExpo demostration.
Giudecca 795 Art Gallery is honoured and pleased to curate
the ART@Hilton series of shows
hosted by the prestigious Hilton Molino Stucky Venice.
