Wunderkammern’s Milan headquarters present a new, exciting exhibition dedicated to contemporary art, starting on the 29th of June, inauguration date of Freedom as Form, the first collective of the Milanese gallery established to explore the concept of freedom through the works of artists BR1, Alexis Diaz, Eron and Faith47.
The exhibition, curated by Giuseppe Pizzuto, will, from the 29th of June to the 10th of August, offer its visitors cause for reflection on the controversial themes of freedom, its meaning and its forms, thanks to the work of the four leading artists.
Freedom, which represents a fundamental, varied and ever-changing element within any society, has been for centuries the object of confrontation between philosophers and leading figures from the worlds of art, culture and politics. A concept that inevitably draws attention to the freedom of artistic expression, and on the ways through which artists are allowed to question and give form to freedom itself.
Freedom as Form thus represents an opportunity to get to know the uniqueness of research and language through which each of these artists managed to freely express his or hers interpretation of the theme: four aesthetics, four different views, for just as many codes to help unveil freedom.
BR1 (Locri, 1984) lives in Turin. His artistic efforts favour spontaneous interventions in the public space. The artist tackles particularly sensitive social themes like immigration, gender discrimination and the effects of a capitalistic system on other societies through performances, posters and installations taking place in the spaces reserved to hoardings, thus providing food for thought to the viewer.
Alexis Diaz (Porto Rico, 1982) is an artists who was able to develop, during the years, incredibly precise painting skills. Through his freehand painting and the use of ink, he brings to life incredibly realistic chimaeras and metamorphic creatures that draw their aesthetic strength from the natural world and from the artist’s own sensitivity, inspired time after time by the ecosystem he works in.
Eron (Rimini, 1973), a pioneer of Writing, is one of the most important Italian Graffiti artists. His works have been displayed in numerous illustrious institutions, like the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome, Venezia’s Biennale and the Chelsea Art Museum in New York.
Faith47 (Cape Town, South Africa, 1979) is a world-renowned artist, constantly experimenting and looking for new techniques and locations. Hers is a narration that best expresses itself both through outdoor and in studio works, exploring themes like the sacred and the ordinary, the human condition and the existential research. Within the Freedom as Form exhibition, the artist will propose some works from her new 7.83 HZ Frequency series, with lead and ink drawings on paper and a video installation that question the themes of human nature, sensitivity and intimate relationships.
