HUB/ART presents "Interface" by Giorgio Tentolini ↗︎, an exhibition that investigates the conception of the image for the artist. His refined and intense research has obtained several awards, including the Rigamonti Award, the San Fedele Visual Arts Award and the Nocivelli Award. Curated by Greta Zuccali and realized thanks to the technical support of Interface Facility Management ↗︎, it will be open from October 24, 2019 to January 5, 2020.

HUB/ART opens the autumn season with an exhibition dedicated to the work of the artist Giorgio Tentolini.

Interface, the title of the exhibition, is a collection of works in which it is possible to find the distinctive signs of the artist’s research, neutrality and time.

Neutrality in colours and neutrality in the use of instruments. Carvings, engravings and manual superimpositions make the language of the artist metaphysical, projecting it into a beyond that contains within itself the immutable and eternal.

 

Interface tells us about a journey into the past and the present, between the faces, or the details of the faces, portrayed by the artist. Here we find the third neutrality, in the spaces and human relations. The faces seem to be interchangeable, both in classical statuary and in our contemporaneity, between mannequins and places on the Net called Social Networks.

From the studied overlapping of the carvings made with meticulous technical skill, on layers of a material with an impalpable consistency, finally emerge rarefied silhouettes of men, women, landscape visions, statuesque bodies and archaic heads, captured by the artist’s photographic shot, taken away from the noise of the contemporary society and from the endless passing of time.

The second element, the time, emerges from Tentolini’s conceptual practice,
in the artist’s practice becomes kairòs, that means the occasion, the right moment to be seized in its fast instantaneousness.
The artist reconstructs reality only after having filtered, decomposed and analyzed it and asks for the observer’s time so that he can carry out the inverse process, a cycle in reverse, that is to say, go beyond the first impression, penetrating, in this way, even in the deepest folds of the image, the same plots of which even the ancient Greeks spoke explaining the circularity of the story.
