Alberto Peola Art Gallery is pleased to announce Simone Mussat Sartor’s solo exhibition.
NOT HERE, NOT NOW.
There are legs, benches, windows; here, in these square-shaped snippets of vision, there are units of time that will never come again, there are moments that we had forgotten, similar but not identical to others that perhaps we had not considered valid, necessary, that we hadn’t pulled from the flow of everything before – the never-ending flow of everything.
For most of us, these photographs will help us to remember moments that we have never experienced. Through these snapshots, we recognize a general moment of everyday life, set in different scenarios, that concerns everyone.
The framing of the shot is instinctive, often in motion, formulated along the way that leads from a starting point to a final destination; the picture is taken "in the meantime,” planned in order to be unplanned, incidentally authentic or authentic because it is incidental.
The Alberto Peola Gallery is pleased to present Thorsten Kirchhoff’s solo exhibition Underground Party.
The exhibition originates from a video inspired by director Emir Kusturica’s film Underground (1995). In Kusturica’s film, the protagonists seek refuge from the war bombings in an air-raid shelter where they will hide for many years, well after the end of the conflict, in an attempt to experience the joy which is impossible to find in the world above. Similarly, Thorsten Kirchhoff’s video hints at the possibility of finding an alternative to the desolate and sterile present reality, one in which the human need to find answers, however vain and illusory, is still alive.More information
Alberto Peola Gallery is pleased to present Francesca Ferreri’s first solo exhibition.
The sculptures of Francesca Ferreri (Savigliano CN, 1981) originate from everyday objects, or their fragments, which, being reassembled into new formal and chromatic wholes, attain new identities and new boundaries. At the core of her artistic exploration are not the objects themselves, which merely activate a process, but the empty spaces between them.More information
The title A Trilogy sets the rhythm for three events featuring trios of video artworks by three artists whose evocative visions evolved between 2008 and 2015, the years of "infinite crisis" as they were called by the philosopher and economist Christian Marazzi. Although they come from different latitudes and use different approaches, the artists Mary Zygouri, Eva Frapiccini and Marianne Heier have all chosen – with a perspective that opens to include the past and the present – to confront the issues of history, economics and politics by exploring the many forms and varied rhetoric of power, each offering her own "countermove" as a response to it.

Alberto Peola Gallery is pleased to present Fatma Bucak’s second solo exhibition.
Born in eastern Turkey and identifying as both Kurdish and Turkish, Fatma Bucak creates art that continues a life-long negotiation and interrogation of the ideological and conceptual conditions of border landscapes. Her films, photographs, and installations emerge from and perpetuate the liminality of borders. The title of her exhibition Nothing is in its own place speaks to her confrontation of the contingency of border spaces and the tenuous interdependency that resides within them.
Alberto Peola Gallery is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of artist Eva Frapiccini.
Frapiccini’s work explores the influence and the lasting effects of political and cultural conditioning in the processes of the creation of memory. Her works often come from knowledge of and personal experience in countries disrupted by political events, to explore the theme of identity and its invisible forms of expression.More information
