Hélène Lacharmoise is pleased to invite you to the exhibition that celebrates the 10th anniversary of the gallery. This exhibition testifies the engagement of the gallery to represent young artists on the long term, after having often held their first exhibition on the market. It also points out a very personal line that focuses on time, image and identity.

This anniversary could not have been permitted without constant collectors, who support artists as well as the gallery. The exhibition is in a way the result of their choice and brings together works of different natures (photography, video, drawing, painting, sculpture.) It reflects the opening of the gallery to the multiple mediums used in contemporary art. Associating artists from various geographical horizons, this exhibition aims to make these ten years a dialogue around the intuitive links and unsuspected visual affinities that the gallery space allows to highlight.

The site specific installations reveal the phantasmic quality of the artists’ work, suspended between memory, dream and descent into the unconscious.

Rubiku’s work ‘Effacing Memory‘ consists of 12 original etchings of dictators (Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Mao, etc.), in which everything has been effaced but the devilish eyes. Many tyrants collected, stole or appropriated fine art to lend an air of sophistication and a sheen of gentility to their psychopathic evil. It thus seems utterly apt and a perfect act of retribution for an artist to rub these figures out in this way. However, it is not that easy to entirely destroy their memory, whence the idea of erasing an etching; not quite possible, therefore the eyes have it.
The act of erasure has been documented in the accompanying video.

Alongside the portraits, we have the 2016 installation ‘This is the end…. my Friends‘, composed of 12 monotypes reinterpreting the death masks seen by the artist at the Israel Museum of Jerusalem in 2013. The work is a reflection on the distortions time brings to things seen.

Riccardo Costantini Contemporary is pleased to present Eccentric Spaces, a project curated byEIena Inchingolo and Paola Stroppiana.

Five artists of different nationalities, Caroline Corbasson, Debbie Lawson, Dana Levy, Noa Pane, Anila Rubiku, with various formative backgrounds and expressive abilities, give us their take on the notion of space seen as one of the basic categories of world perception.

The idea for the project originated from reflecting on Erwin Panofsky’s book Perspective as symbolic form (1927), which shows how every cultural age develops its own way of representing space, as the visible ‘symbolical form’ peculiar to that culture.

Our examination of space in contemporary art therefore led to a careful selection of works: the concept of space that forms the object of this project is diverse, all-encompassing, starting from the original meaning of the word – an available place for the objects of reality, which are identified by their way they are arranged or positioned and possess physical dimensions, hence are susceptible of being moved. By an association of ideas, and by a metaphorical shift of meaning, the exhibition concept also includes the possibility for space to become, within contemporary art, a relational, anthropological, architectural, astronomical, poetic, oneiric, naturalistic place.

We have deliberately chosen works created with different media – video installation, sculpture, drawing, because they suggest different reflections on reality as a result of their specificity: questions on the nature of things, scientific categorization of space and its objects, a constantly evolving world of information that sets ever new goals for knowledge and exchange.
