Alex Pinna - Giuseppe Ferrise

Stories - Wppdy wildlife


23-02-2018   24-03-2018

Alex Pinna brings the stories of his silent characters back to Genoa, where he exhibited in 2005 and 2009. Rope and bronze sculptures rooted in the Etruscan tradition, with the disenchantment and irony typical of contemporary art: 20 works invade and contaminate the gallery space. Metamorphic beings suspended between the plant kingdom and human nature. Little boxers, enormous heroes, trapeze artists entangled at the waist, foolhardy balancing artists: Pinna’s stories reveal our experience without telling its story, leaving the ending open. A monumental sculpture will stand outside the church of San Matteo in the square of the same name in Genoa throughout the exhibition dates. Alex Pinna was born in Imperia, and teaches sculpture at the Fine Arts Academy in Catanzaro; he lives and works in Milan. With Alex Pinna’s show, Guidi&Schoen begins a series that will continue throughout the year 2018: the artist featured in the exhibition on the main foor will be asked to invite a young artist to make his or her exhibition debut in the basement. For this exhibition, Pinna has invited twenty-four-year-old Calabrian sculptor Giuseppe Ferrise. Giuseppe Ferrise grew up in a country home surrounded by thick forest, which inspired his creatures, made from the natural materials the forest provides. Raffa, bark, stone and leaves come to life in playful, sometimes disturbing hypertrophic creatures. Giuseppe Ferrise was born in 1994 in Lamezia Terme, where he lives and works.
