VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023 – 17TH EDITION Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello | September 21 – October 06, 2023 ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the opening of the 17th edition of VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023, international exhibition of photography, painting, video art, installation/sculpture and performance art, which will be held in Venice, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello from September 21 to October 06, 2023.
VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR provides artists and exhibitors with the unique opportunity to present their works to an international audience of professionals such as curators, gallerists, collectors, editors and publishers who seek to acquire, publish and encourage the best contemporary art talents.
The exhibition analyses the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban contexts in contemporary times, through two main sections: LIQUID ROOMS and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.
LIQUID ROOMS analyses the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality: a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.
FUTURE LANDSCAPES are abstract, infinite and conceptual, associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefine their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in an open flow of pure ideas. This section focuses on the concept of boundaries and structures between body, mind and soul, human identity and the city, the space and the ground.
During the exhibition visitors may enjoy the themes of LIQUID ROOMS and FUTURE LANDSCAPES through the art of Barbara Giuffrè, native of Sicily, who creates chromatic harmonies, combining strong colors with shiny transparencies. Barbara is a strong advocate of the psychology of colors, she firmly believes in their ability to influence human behavior and vice versa. Colors are the ideal tool for communicating and conveying the most hidden emotions: blue in all its nuances is the color that absolutely identifies Barbara Giuffrè’s art.
In the artistic exploration of the Lebanese artist Lana Khayat, one discovers mosaics of Arab cultures intricately woven into a harmonious choreography of human expression spanning the tapestry of time. The body of Lana’s artistic work unveils a panoramic journey resonating with the very essence of the rich Arab culture. On the same wavelength we find the art of Paolo Staccioli whose talent unfolds through experimentation with various materials and objects and the effects of transparency, reflection and refraction exerted by natural or artificial light. Staccioli’s research emphasizes the purely pictorial and aesthetic aspects inherent in the photographic object. Remaining in the area of photographic experimentation is the art of the visual artist Kyo Chen, from Taiwan, which in the photos presented captures the splendid dance of the glittering fireflies that he calls small abstract-expressionist artists. Their light appears differently through our eyes and the camera lens, offering a dreamlike, surreal vision.
The Indonesian photographer Matt Jacob displays a set of photographs which capture the evocative, dynamic, and complex lives of cultural subjects. With a focus on authentically encapsulating a moment from all metaphorical angles within a photograph, and a story over a collection, Matt has dedicated his passion to truly understanding the essence of different perspectives. In the same way the Irish photographer David Killeen uses photography in social documentary, architecture, urban environment to tell stories or observe subjects from an acute angle or from a different perspective. Mo Kamal, based in Dubai, has the knack of capturing landscapes in the wilderness. Mo has the ability to capture landscapes immersed in the wildest nature, capturing scenes of everyday life that seem to stand still in time and at the same time in the act of being fulfilled.
On the other side we find artist Christa Grenawalt exploring themes of vitality, transformation and the interrelationship between the natural world and our bodies and lives. The exhibited work “Aqua vitae” was created outdoors, in the rain, amidst those atmospheric rivers in the liminal space of fog, rain and wind, where the Pacific Ocean meets the land. The environment shaped the composition. The golden raindrops recall renewal and revitalisation as part of the cycle of life. Similarly Sarah Banis, from Bavaria, creates paintings that draw inspiration from the colors of nature, she is completely guided by the element and allows herself to be transported intuitively. Sarah’s abstract art is characterized by organic, fluid movements. Water is one of her main elements.
The exhibition will host a selection of video artworks including “Fractal” by Alex Lavrova, whose video is inspired by this phenomenon and uses it in combination with numerical data to create new abstract forms. Everything on the screen is the result of experiments with lines of programming code, no other effects or video editing programmes were used.
Paris-based Tunisian artist Elhem Younes presents videos which explore the construction of meaning and perception in the digital age. Embracing “viscerality”, her work captures the complexities of human interiority and the fragility of existence. Elhem employs technology thoughtfully as a means of artistic expression, deepening the exploration of her vision.
