Colors have great power. They are evocative. They comfort. Convey. Zanet, through his paintings, look for a way to amplify their ability to communicate positivity, happiness. He studies a system to distill harmony from chaos, to find a meaning, a balance, a compositive effectiveness, despite not having the certainty of fully reaching it. His relationship with painting is truly intimate, his art practice is a way of being in the world, a continuous attempt to understand it.
Piero Chiariello, curator of the exhibition.
Giulio Zanet was born in 1984 in Colleretto Castelnuovo (Turin), now he lives and works beetween Milan and Correggio.

Mazzacana Gallery presents the ten digital artworks created by Simone Bubbico for the exhibition Wallpapers for your phone #7, curated by Federica Lavarini. The artworks will be free to download starting at 6:30 PM (CEST) on October 23rd 2021, and they will become available upon payment at the end of the event – November 23rd 2021 – or after 500 copies downloaded.
Simone Bubbico approches the research on the light-shadow, man-nature dualism to technology: thin wildflowers grow on Venus de Milo, emblem of classical culture, as well as on the studies for sculptural models, custodian of ideal beauty. But it’s nature, in its more hostile manifestation, to draw our attention from a long time. Now it’s among us to recover its spaces. And yet, in the In bloom series, it still shows kindness: it’s elegant, capable of induce a subtle reflection; it’s light but also darkness and, in a game of fantastic illusions, refers to dreams survived to distruction.
Federica Lavarini, curator of the exhibition.
Simone Bubbico was born in 1984 in Turin where he graduated in Decoration at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts. His first double solo exhibition took place in 2013 at PAN in Naples. In 2016 he won the first prize at Arte Laguna Prize (sculpture section) and he was a finalist at Canova Prize in New York in 2018. He exhibited in Berlin, Rome and various national reviews.

“Maximum complexity and maximum simplicity correspond” as Piero Chiariello says, for this reason in Pulvis he employs an everyday, anonymous and sometimes insidious element: atmospheric dust. It has existed for millennia, reveals the presence of light, absorbs environmental cues, arranges itself according to precise laws and, at the same time, refers to vagueness and chance. Pulvis is the dust which, undisturbed, has deposited for months on the surface of various materials and returns an imaginary landscape of what happened during our absence and without our action.
Federica Lavarini, curator of the exhibition.
Piero Chiariello was born in 1972 in Torre del Greco (Naples) where he still lives and works. After having studied Architecture at the University “Federico II”, his art research has been articulated through painting, photography, music, video, sculpture and installations. He has exhibited his artworks in various national and international occasions, including MAXXI and MACRO in Rome, the 54° Venice Biennale, the international project of digital art SPAMM and three editions of the New Digital Art Biennale in Brazil.
Mazzacana Gallery is a meeting place, free from whatever obligation and dedicated to make a group for communication of ideas, because it's urgent to make changes, create synergies and live new utopias.
