3 GIOVANI ARTISTI ALLA GAMeC DI BERGAMO

La galleria d'Arte moderna e contemporanea  GAMeC di Bergamo inaugura oggi con tre giovani artisti: Oscar Giaconia, Jacopo Milani e Valentina Gervasoni.I progetti, a cura di Sara Fumagalli e Valentina Gervasoni, confermano l’attenzione che la GAMeC riserva da sempre ad artisti e curatori delle nuove generazioni, creando opportunità espositive e occasioni di approfondimento del loro lavoro.
OSCAR GIACONIA - HOYSTERIA: L'assonanza concettuale e fonetica che accomuna le parole "osteria", "ostrica" e "isteria" produce un titolo intraducibile, un equivoco linguistico, una disfunzione di senso incarnata dalle figure che abitano l’esposizione: locandieri, falsari, vecchi nostromi, sentinelle, spettri e mostri sono i soggetti che popolano lo Spazio Zero della GAMeC, e che mettono in scena una degenerazione contemporanea della pittura di genere. La maniacalità linguistica di Giaconia si esprime attraverso l’uso di materiali eterogenei come silicone, vulcanite, nylon, gomma di neoprene, salpa, elastomeri, rivelando l’accanimento e l’ostinazione empirica della sua ricerca e della sua pratica pittorica.

JACOPO MILANI (Firenze, 1979), è presente con due opere video che rielaborano le tematiche trattate nel film Teorema di Pier Paolo Pasolini: in Deserto (2017) un corpo enigmatico, lunghe unghie laccate di rosso, una nuova lingua dei segni, una voce, un testo, danza e fotografia sono gli elementi che danno vita a una fitta trama di stimoli in cui linguaggio verbale e visivo si intrecciano al lessico sensoriale e sensuale. TEOREMA TEOREMA TEOREMA (2018), appositamente prodotto in collaborazione con la GAMeC per questa edizione, rappresenta invece l’ideale sviluppo di Deserto e ha come protagonista il performer parigino Matyouz – danzatore, Master of Ceremony e commentatore dei più importanti Vogue Contests in Europa.

 DRIANT ZENELI - WHEN DREAMS BECOME NECESSITY costituisce una riflessione sul fallimento, inteso non come fine ma come opportunità per immaginare sentieri ancora inesplorati e accogliere lo stimolo di nuove sfide. I tre video documentano altrettante azioni performative svolte dall’artista: un salto nel vuoto, un volo con il parapendio e un lancio agganciato a una teleferica, a tutta velocità. In tutti i casi, Zeneli cerca di realizzare tre desideri, tre sogni verosimilmente impossibili da concretizzare, che implicano un certo grado di pericolosità e coraggio. La modalità stessa di ripresa, con la camera a mano, contribuisce a creare una dimensione immersiva, a dare la sensazione di essere presenti, fisicamente, accanto all’artista nel momento in cui si accinge a compiere le sue azioni.

S/S 2019 TREND: ONE-SHOULDER

As claimed by Céline, Versace, Balmain, Saint Laurent, and many other designers, the spring-summer 2019 strategy involves a one-shouldered silhouette. Whether it’s on the beach with a one-strap swimsuit or on the town in a single-sleeve dress or top, there are plenty of good reasons to integrate this silhouette into your wardrobe.

GEMS FOR EYES

Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum by Elizabeth Arden, firms and reduces the look of crow’s feet and puffiness1 for eyes that look younger and brighter. It's a serum that immediately enhances skin’s natural barrier, increases moisturization within the surface of the skin, and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. After using for about 10 days, the dark spots on your face disappear and the area around and under eyes improve dramatically.
 Idrastin Gems is a special topical serum latest generation designed for the daily care of the skin around the eyes and face. Impact performs action to counteract wrinkles and blemishes around the eyes, in particular, the darkening of the area around the eyes.The presence dell'HALOXYL ™, a combination of 3 active ingredients that act in a synergistic way, strengthens and tones the delicate eye area, and attenuates the phenomena of darkenin.The formulation also has the valuable combination of Vitamin E and pure Retinol 0.03%.
The combination of the two products gives optimal results, personally I first apply the gold capsule by Elizabeth Arden that has a lighter consistency, I wait  few minutes to absorb and then I apply Idrastin gem which has a thicker consistency.
I recommend both of them.

OCHRE IN FASHION

The major ingredient of this ancient natural colour is iron oxide-hydroxide, known as limonite, which gives it its yellow colour. The hue belongs to a family of earth pigments, it ranges in colour from yellow to deep orange or brown. Ochre is a family of earth pigments, which includes yellow ochre, red ochre, purple ochre, sienna, and umber. From the Red Indians to the Romans, to modern day trendsetters, Ochre has enduring appeal. Ochre was used in decorative palette of the Romans, as well as Medieval Church painters. The Aboriginals have painted with Ochres for over 40 000 years and the Red Indians took their name from the Red Ochre they painted themselves with.
