ISOLA – Contemporary Art Exhibition


Virtual Exhibition, LdM Gallery, curated by Associazione Culturale Forme

Isola features three young artists, Andisheh Bagherzadeh (Tehran, 1993), Francesca Cerfeda (Napoli, 1993) and Nicolas Denino (Montevideo, 1985) whose work reaches congruity in profound reflection on the origin of their own existence, as well as their genealogical, territorial, cultural, and social identities.
This exhibition will transport the viewer to an imaginary, ambiguous, and ambivalent place, where land meets the sea. A place to weave a story in which cultural, social, and linguistic differences do not represent an obstacle, but an opportunity to grow as human beings and as a community of individuals.
For these three artists, Isola – Island – is meant to be a wish, a need, and a hope. A point of departure, and of arrival. Land and sea in continuous contact; fluctuating and finding balance between alternating contradictions which connect us all in invisible networks of impressions.
