Thukral & Tagra. SOMNIUM SEMINIBUS II. Opening

[dip] contemporary art is delighted to present Indian artists Thukral & Tagra’s first solo show in Switzerland, SOMNIUM SEMINIBUS II.  The exhibition’s opening takes place on Wednesday, September 19th, from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm, at the presence of the artists. The exhibition brings the public into a particular atmosphere, illustrating a wide variety of plant species, while the Artists explore the coexistence of elements in nature, raising questions and curiosity on their origins and the past. A past which is manicured by folklore and natural progression. The ways of seeing them can be challenged and a walk along this one route is what the Artists intend to narrate. This in no meant to be a biological approach or study of species; it juxtaposes the elements which have been inherited and stay together.

Claudio Citterio
LOOP RECORDER

Opening: 7th June, h. 18.00 – 20.30
Visits: 8th June – 9th September 2018, h. 14.00 – 18.30

[dip] contemporary art is delighted to present LOOP RECORDER by Italian artist Claudio Citterio (1975, Varese). Claudio Citterio’s work “focuses on two experiences of consciousness: one of the work as potential next action and one of history as unbroken line of the idea through the artworks”. It is from these two “generating but  non-overlapping instances” that Claudio Citterio develops his action in the art. His work focuses on the disorientation of a comprehensive/perceptive path, able to activate an unexpected syllogistic concatenation between artwork, its perception and the observer as an active presence. The exhibition LOOP RECORDER, brings the public into a particular atmosphere in which the concept of light plays an essential role. The exhibition creates a dimension in which the public is directly involved, through four works strictly linked one to the other (Loop, Chronography, Mirror, Transparent/Equinox). A visual cycle, which makes the observer’s presence a kind of rhythmic pattern overlying and revealing/revealed by the same exhibition.
