December is usually a joyful month, a festive time awaited by young and old alike.
This December marks the end of a year that has turned the lives of people around the world upside down. Covid has canceled hugs, a normality that took handshakes and being close to each other for granted. The BIANCHIZARDIN Gallery inaugurated its first exhibition last February, a few weeks before the pandemic took over. Our personal and professional lives have had to adapt to a different world, we have not been discouraged and although the human side is fundamental in our work, we have used technology to continue to support our artists and not give in to changes.
The Gallery and all the members of the Maroncelli District are sorry not to have organized the usual event in support of the Centro S. Antonio, the neighborhood is our family and it is precisely for this reason that we want to share with satisfaction the success achieved with the ART TO CLOSE THE DISTANCE
whose proceeds were partly donated to the Centro S. Antonio.
This health emergence obliges us to live our intimacy and to value it as we have never been forced to do.
Houses have become our worlds and what better time to make them more like us and our emotions. We just have to play with colors and shapes and let ourselves be invaded by the serenity brought by the contemplation of beauty and creativity.
For this reason BIANCHIZARDIN proposes the limited edition works of ART TO CLOSE THE DISTANCE in only 60 copies at the price of 300 euros including VAT and launches a new project together with LIBRIBIANCHI:
SUBLIMATION OF A BOOK
Lorenzo and Simona Perrone transform real books into sculptures.
They do not erase the words, but cover them with a blanket of plaster, so that the text inside the work remains intact and the book releases its original strength in another way, like an indomitable raw material that is re-worked to give life to a work of art.
If you have a book to which you are attached for emotional, family reasons or just because it is one of those texts that changed your life, Lorenzo and Simona will make that book become a sculpture and live outside the shelf of the library where it was been placed, so that it has a new life, a plastic three-dimensionality, an added value to communicate with you in a different way, through your aesthetic and artistic sensitivity.
It will be like asking a writer to express himself without words, but only with the gestures of a dance.
