"Mariano Fortuny was a great modern artist whose creations ranged from the development of theatrical lighting to the invention of particular methods for dyeing and printing textiles. Knowledge of the work in the collections of Palazzo Fortuny has enabled me to trace parallels with my own research as an artist. Questions relating to light, form, materials, structure, decorative arts and serial production are at the core of my concerns. I see this exhibition as a opportunity to create a dialogue between works of art from different periods; to engage with the work and spirit of Fortuny." This is how Henri Foucault interprets and explains his presence here at Palazzo Fortuny. Sosein and Satori, the two series of work on display, comprise photographic images that concentrate on different aspects of corporeality. Each image is either punctured or re-defined by the dense agglomerations of steel pins that form a layer above it. In effect, the work focuses on the perception of light, on a redefinition of the sense of volume, on the relation between the two- and three-dimensional, between form and structure, between photography and sculpture!

"HENRI FOUCAULT,
SATORI - Venice"

The exhibition, curated by Dominique Pani, is organised in concomitance with the 51st Venice Visual Arts Biennale. Located on the first piano nobile of the Palazzo, the exhibition complements the atmospheric interiors and furnishings of Mariano Fortuny's atelier. It comprises a series of works - photographs that have been punctured and/or re-drawn by the superimposition of hundreds of pins - which are a conceptual conjunction of the photographic image and the three-dimensional. Other pieces include video installations and a floor sculpture of twelve components. Often, what we look for in photographs of bodies and things is mass rather than outline, weight rather than evanescence, the modulation of volume rather than the diaphanous extension of surfaces. However, Henri Foucault has long known that photography also possesses another undeniable gift: it exalts materials themselves, facing us with the problems raised by spatial perception, by the form and reproducibility of images. From the apparent conflict between the slow development of a volume and the instantaneous act of taking a photograph emerges the opportunity to blend together these two notions of sculpture and photography. Sosein and Satori, the two series exhibited in Venice, mark the stage the artist has reached in exploring this encounter, in radically undermining the traditional categories of art. The starting-point is the model, the human body.

Running Exhibition from March 27th 2004 to Feb 28th 2005

Running Exhibition from October 9th to November 7th 2004
"SENZA POSA - Quaranta immagini di Alessandara Chemollo e Fulvio Orsenigo"

"I like to watch people faces who get past me.", "I am anonymous just like the others , and yet I always try to find the elements that my mind cannot enumerate in their eyes and their gestures . Precious moments of absence that cannot be controlled..'' says Alessandra Chemollo, one of the two artists present at this exhibition, the title of which is "Senza Posa" and which is is highly symbolic of the works contents such as photographs of Venice that we could call anonymous not certainly for the aesthetic quality but becouse of the conceptual background they represent. The exhibition has been organized by Agnes Kohlmeyer and Antonello Frongia, and put on by Tobia Scarpa, and through these shots, it points out that even such an important touristic capital can be recognizable and can keep its fascination and uniqueness even when representing insignificant and anonymous vistas.

Opening hours: Daily from October 9th to November 7th 2004, ground floor.
