Versione italiana  

29 March - 3 July 2022

GAM | Galleria d’arte Moderna di Milano is pleased to present AS ABOVE, SO BELOW, a exhibition curated by Paola Zatti.

Elisa Sighicelli, an internationally recognised Turin born artist, is entrusted with the task of finding a dialogue with the sculptures of the GAM repository. A world that encompasses about 800 countenances will put the artist to the test: to investigate the expressive potential of single or groups of works, random juxtapositions dictated by the space of a repository that will soon be modified, bringing a world to an end. And it is to that world that Sighicelli gives voice through a series of photographic images, a signature technique relying on elaborate experimentation, which the artist has used in the past when dealing with ephemeral images and hard and stable materials, such as marble, which will express their truth and strength thanks to the setup of this exhibit.
