On Thursday 13 February Bianchi Zardin Contemporary Art opens in Milan, a new space for art born from the collaboration between Gaia Bianchi and Andrea Zardin. The first exhibition, visible until April 4, 2020, is a solo show by Brigitta Rossetti.

Youth and professionalism come together in the new collaboration between Gaia Bianchi and Andrea Zardin. Milan Bianchi Zardin Contemporary Art was born from the initiative of the two young protagonists of Milanese contemporary art. The inauguration, set for Thursday 13 February, is the initial stage of a journey that looks at the promotion of young talents, both Italian and international.
Brigitta Rossetti's solo exhibition is presented as the first exhibition project, making observation of the world and the relationship between words and images one of the main features of her poetics. Figurative, abstract paintings, installations and works in which multiple techniques are mixed: these are the ingredients that make up an exhibition where the mixture of the media - and the different relationships that they establish with the viewer - becomes metaphors of concepts such as crossing, mixing and finally transformation.

Peter Pan's boots, the installation made with reused materials that gives the title to the staff, represents an invitation to visitors to make an unknown journey, in search of their identity. While we wonder if the island that is not there is a physical or metaphysical problem, slowly the awareness of an inner space where our identity is hidden opens up within us.
Dialogue is also triggered in other circumstances, such as in the works Lost Spring and The Same Island as before, where Brigitta Rossetti immerses the viewer within that dialogue, between natural and artificial elements, which characterizes the link between man and man. 'environment. It continues with Incomprenhsibile, an installation that consists of a yoke, object repainted and converted to a new function that emphasizes that what seems is not what it is, suggesting the possibility of changing perspective on things.

The exhibition ends with the abstract-figurative installation The stone dreams. Brigitta Rossetti therefore places the human being at the center of all her artistic research, who although not depicted in her works, is the protagonist.
