Giorgia Severi – ANTENATI

Once there was the Ocean – Mt. Zeil, West MacDonnell Range, 2016

la città projects began on the occasion of two initiatives that took place in Bologna: a collaboration with Essse Caffè, and the presentation of a single-themed booth at Arte Fiera. It is a project
devoted to Italian and foreign artists who are young and not-so-young.
Essse Caffè is a meritorious symbol of interaction between art and business: last year in the historical headquarters of the Segafredo family’s coffee firm, in the centre of Bologna, during Arte Fiera there was opened a show of work by Francesco Geronazzo – who later won the Acqui Giovani prize – with whom the firm has undertaken a project to promote his work.
This year, as a result of meeting la città projects, Essse Caffè Store will be showing new works by Giorgia Severi, taken from her series Antenati Foreste: the show will also be part of the Art City White Night circuit – the art white night organized by Arte Fiera – and so can also be visited on Saturday 3 February when it will remain open until 10 p.m.
At Arte Fiera, instead, la città projects is present with the second part of Severi’s cogent project, this time devoted to mountains. A booth measuring 24 sq. m. will host the large-scale work Antenati – Mt.Zeil, Once there was the Ocean, 2016.
