Open Lab: Thursday 23rd Nov - Thursday 14th Dec
(Thursday, Friday, Saturday 12 - 4 pm)
EVENT: Thursday 14th December at 7.00 pm
Conjunctive Tissue discloses Marco Giordano’s latest research on co-authorship, combining materials, and visual and semantic meanings to alter the ways in which one perceives reality. The artist’s research plays out at the intersection of painting, sculpture, site-specific installation, and collaborative projects. His practice defines itself as intersectional, since his works do not prioritise a contemplative experience within the gallery space, rather, they emerge from collaborations with visitors, who become the catalyst of the work. Feeding into performativity, Marco Giordano plays with the role of the artist, implicating the visitor or the audience into production. The Lab is a space for schools, creative groups, or individuals to encounter Marco Giordano’s work and to be part of his open-ended artistic process. The artist will be at Civic Room from Thursday 23rd Nov to Thursday 14th Dec (Thursday, Friday, Saturday from 12 to 4 pm). A publication will accompany the exhibition on 14th December 2017.
Conjunctive Tissue is curated by Giulia Colletti and it is part of CIVIC ROOM Open.
