Sprovieri is delighted to invite you to the opening of Sense Exercises / Sans Exercice,
Mario Dellavedova’s fourth solo exhibition at the Gallery.
“Sense Exercises / Sans Exercice”: contradictions in terms. Meaningful exercises.
The artist's conceptual work juxtaposes artefacts, furniture, textiles and everyday objects. Dellavedova creates works that undermine their quotidian function through the richness of their materials and the refinement of their detail.
By juxtaposing familiar and ordinary elements these works create an atmosphere of intimacy with mystical nuances that overwhelm the viewer with feelings and emotions. By including words and mundane sentences in works which are similar to paintings, the artist seems to evoke the banality of painting and its subjects as well as his detached and ironic spirit.
