Kaori Miyayama. In the transparency of a weightless space

From to

The Gallery Carlo Mazzi in Tegna presents an exibition of Kaori Miyayama. In the transparency of a weightless space. From 23rd of September until 30th of October 2018.

 

The settings prepared by Kaori Miyayama for the premises of the Galleria Mazzi and the Casa Eugenia in Tegna unfold as a double installation aimed at going beyond the physical boundaries of the spaces that contain them. In fact, both are placed in an ideal and intermediate “place” that is between heaven and earth. They are also different but similarly focused, in the same fashion as they are, on the common themes of distance and the relativism of a viewpoint: the horizon that, seen from here, appears distant in reality continues beyond our narrow and linear point of view; it bends and curves up to embrace the entire world, even the one that lies beneath our feet. Heaven is also therefore beneath us. Near to us. Inside of us. It is above and below at a time, near and far; it is a physical reality but also a niche of mystery and of hidden presences that pulsates in the folds of the soul. At this point, the usual Euclidean terms of reference such as above or below, inside and outside, mix and change continuously, they exchange and alternate. It seems insignificant, but an entire system is jolted or moved. As in the canvases placed with respect to the midline of the horizon: vertical and horizontal, above and below, alternate continuously until they the settings prepared by Kaori Miyayama for the premises of the Galleria Mazzi and the Casa Eugenia in Tegna unfold as a double installation aimed at going beyond the physical boundaries of the spaces that contain them.
