Alberto Peola Gallery is pleased to present Tanzen, by Giorgio and Walter de Silva.
The two brothers are both professional designers – Walter is internationally renowned for his achievements in the automobile industry as well as in the industrial products sector, and Giorgio is a commercial artist. One summer night they resolved to engage in a very unusual art form, one which Giorgio developed as early as the 1980s.
Tanzen consists of installations made of cardboard and paper, carbon and metal, fragments of all kinds, the most diverse objects which, once assembled, become bodies surrounded by a magical, occult halo. Pieces of writing and of buildings as well as frames within which chaos – made of cut-out pictures, Dinki Toys, marbles, broken glass, rusty relics – transforms itself into a temple celebrating heroes, circus artists, emperors and princesses, saints, athletes and weird creatures – myths invented by two skilful players with a knack for gambling who wish to escape from the modern world.More information
