Piero Chiariello – Wallpapers for your phone #6

Wallpapers for your phone #6 Piero Chiariello Mazzacana Gallery

Mazzacana Gallery presents the ten digital artworks created by Piero Chiariello for the exhibition Wallpapers for your phone #6, curated by Federica Lavarini. The artworks will be free to download starting at 6:30 PM (CEST) on September 11th 2021, and they will become available upon payment at the end of the event – October 11th 2021 – or after 500 copies downloaded.

“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.

Altre forme – Piero Chiariello

Mazzacana Gallery is pleased to announce the preparation of the exhibition Altre forme of artist Piero Chiariello, curated by Massimo Sgroi.

The opening of Altre forme will take place on saturday December 7th 2019 at 5 PM, while the end of the event has been set to January 31st 2020.

The exhibition will be free admission and it will feature wall-mounted works of various formats and two video works.

Piero Chiariello realizza il suo lavoro proprio nel momento in cui la mutazione tecnologica investe come una tempesta il corpo e la mente, in particolare nei suoi lavori più recenti dimostra come ci troviamo impreparati di fronte ai nuovi paradigmi del senso. La frammentazione dell’immagine non implica un automatico adattamento della nostra mente, anzi. Incapaci di interpretare tutti i segni che ci circondano finiamo per vivere un senso di spiazzamento, di estraneità verso tutti i modelli che la vita stessa ci propone. Non esiste più un criterio assoluto di riconoscibilità, dell’arte come della vita, ma un continuum disomogeneo di frammenti emozionali. In questo il rapporto con la nuova percezione, apparentemente contraddittoria delle opere di Chiariello, assume, di volta in volta, valenze di sradicamento e di estraneità in alcune e in altre funzioni liberatorie e aggreganti.
