Jacob Kassay, Rehang, Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia, starting March 3, 2019
For the first time since the opening of Collezione Maramotti in October 2007, ten rooms on the second floor of the permanent display will be rehung to present some of the projects shown during the first ten years of activity:
In 2010, emerging artist Jacob Kassay made a series of ‘silvery’ and mirror-like canvases which hold the ghostly presence of the underlying painting while absorbing and reflecting the surroundings. The conceptual elements of monochromatism, objectivisation of paint pigments, the reflection on colour, movement and shape become the focus of his research, and are codified into the original metaphysics of the painted surface, in a new, deeply lyrical form of abstraction, with a reference to photography.
Opening, by invitation only: 2 March 2019, at 6.00pm; some of the artists will be present.
