“Acque Solide” – Herbert Hamak, Giorgio Vigna

Invito_definitivo_unicolivello_1

On 6 September Studio la Città returns to Venice to start off a new exhibition project curated by Marco Meneguzzo. On the island of the Giudecca there will be two solo shows, by the artists Herbert Hamak and Giorgio Vigna, titled Acque Solide: an antithesis that represents the common denominator of the works on show.

Both artists work on their material in an almost sculptural manner, counterposing the physicality and weight of the medium – resin for the former, and glass or copper for the latter – against the lightness of the final result, one consisting of transparency, and of games of light and geometry that create oppositions between Hamak’s hollow and angular forms, and the sinuously rounded outlines of Vigna’s works.

Ends: November 10, 2019
