Immersed in darkness, the LOOPS exhibition offers a journey in which the recurring forms developed by Mathieu Mercier are sublimated into spectacular works that respond to the size and constraints of the exhibition spaces.

The Belgian artist present in some past Biennials – returns to Venice with a “public art project”, a  golden 9 meters sculpture, which presents itself as “a metaphor for the artist who tries to capture the impossible through his work. A human figure, ideally modelled on the body of his younger brother, Emiel, who died at an early age, stretches a ruler over a ladder towards the sky, almost as if to measure the clouds.

Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, Texas – U.S.A

Sheila Hicks has been working almost exclusively with textiles throughout her decades-long career. Known for pushing the material into monumental scale, Hicks’s textile sculptures and installations transform thread and fiber into entire environments and reflect her formalist training, with their emphasis on color, form, and line. Her work draws from traditions of weaving, architecture, fashion, and her personal experiences of living, working, and traveling across the globe.

La Fotografia come differenza 

opening May 3, until June 16, 2019

Palazzo Grillo, Piazza delle Vigne, 4, Genova – IT

The exhibition presents for the first time a selection of 40 photographies from five different projects by the Paolo Novelli, active behind the camera since 1997. La fotografia come differenza focuses on the creative period 2002-2013, with the intention of highlighting the development and consolidation of a personal style, considered among the most interesting and coherent of the 20th century Italian generations of photographers.

Novelli’s photographies, essential, timeless and without place, have been depicted, not by chance, by Giovanni Gastel as “photography of solitude”; his visual language therefore is in sharp contrast with the predominant communication in the current digital age.
