TRANSPARENT AS A DRAGONFLY
Celebrating the author of “Invisible Cities” is the aim of the exhibition “Transparent as a Dragonfly”, conceived of as a recognition to Italo Calvino on the centenary of his birth. The exhibition was born out of the collaboration between the Arte Borgo Gallery and ArtCan, placing the expressive language of the artists at the forefront, influenced by one of the author’s most significant texts, “Invisible Cities”.
Divided into two appointments, the exhibition will move beyond Italian borders, firstly presented in the Arte Borgo Gallery exhibition space in Rome, in 2024 it will travel to the Bermondsey Project Space in London. “Transparent as a dragonfly” brings together the work of 36 artists united by linguistic interweavings whose role is comparable to the role of the reader of a novel who, addressing various issues, focuses on complex productions and reflections permeated by an intimate investigation from which one’s personal creativity emerges. United by a similar introspection on places, people and memory, the artists create a harmonious dialogue between space and works. An exhibition that celebrates a masterful coexistence through the pages of the book and the works of the artists.
