Poem without word

25.11.2023 > 27.01.2024

Studio la Città, Verona
opening Saturday, November 25th, h 11 am
curated by Stanislao Vialardi

The exhibition Poem without word was born from the collaboration between Hélène de Franchis and the young collector Stanislao Vialardi. Together they created a selection of young artists present in his collection and not represented by Studio la Città. Thus the title of the show: poem without words, with works by Cleo Fariselli, Francesca Ferreri, Sophie Ko, Renato Leotta, Agathe Rosa, Manuel Scano Larrazàbal, Serena Vestrucci.

The title Poem without word is borrowed from a song written in 1987 – made famous in 1993 as a techno track – and refers to the “time of apples” years of the collector-curator and the generation of artists chosen for the exhibition, all born in the 1980s.
Another reason, in addition to anagraphic and generational contingency, underlies Vialardi’s choice, which he explains as follows: This exhibition is meant to be a personal tribute to the research and scientific popularization work of two italian physicists Guido Tonelli and Carlo Rovelli (who is from Verona) explorers of “otherworlds,” discoverers of phenomena that change the story of the origin of the universe and consequently the narrative of our origins. I believe that a story of such magnitude should be sung by the poetry of art: without words, but in a way as charged and dense as the emptiness of physicsThe works of the artists whom I suggested for the exhibition have accompanied my gaze and thoughts in the recent reading of these great scientists that we are fortunate to live in the present.

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Peola Simondi galleries, Turin | Renata Fabbri, Milan | Société Interludio, Turin | Sprovieri, London.
