Exhibition at Bocconi University
A Trip with Marco Casentini to Bocconi Art Gallery 2017
THE SEVENTH EDITION OF BAG INCLUDES ‘DRIVE IN’, A PERSONAL EXHIBITION OF TWELVE PAINTINGS AND A 30METER WALL PAINTING BY THE ARTIST, CELEBRATING THE THEME OF THE JOURNEY
A journey into the art of Marco Casentini, but also a journey into the theme of the journey. In the seventh edition of Bocconi Art Gallery, which will be inaugurated on November 13, there will be a personal exhibition of the artist curated by the critic Federico Sardella. The exhibition, which will remain in Bocconi until December 22, exhibits a large wall painting of thirty meters plus twelve paintings. It represents the second stage of an exhibition tour that began in August at the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster (California) will end in February at the Reggia di Caserta, curated by Luca Palermo.
“In ‘Drive In’ there is the memory of the journey,” says Marco Casentini. “It’s a way to enter my art and follow the outlines and feelings, the exhibition space becomes the place where the spectator can perceive the emotions I shared. But at the same time, since all my works refer to places or travel experiences, ‘Drive In’ is also a metaphorical reflection on the subject of being in another place. ”
In each of the venues where it is set up, “the show develops with different exhibition criteria dictated by each space, holding as a common denominator the on-site realization of a mural painting that deals with the works exhibited. In the case of the exhibition in Caserta, there is also of a floor colored with resins, made in an exhibition hall, “continues Casentini.
At Lancaster, where the show was curated by MOAH’s director, Andi Campognone, the artist modified a Fiat 500 with his typical colorful pattern and exhibited paintings done on reflecting metal that resemble the ca’s body. “For BAG, a large 30-meter wall painting will be realized and there will be 7 paintings in acrylic and perspex on canvas plus 5 paintings on perspex and aluminum.”
