International Exhibition of Sculptures and Installations
During the <Venice Film Festival>
2 September – 2 October 2016
Hilton Molino Stucky, Venice
Inauguration: 2 September, Hilton Molino Stucky at 8.00 pm (invitation only)
Invited by the Italian art curator Paolo De Grandis and his co-curator Carlotta Scarpa, Li Chevalier will participate to the nineteenth edition of OPEN, International Exhibition of Sculptures and Installations during the Venice Film Festival. The exhibition will be held from 2 September to 2 October 2016 at the Hilton Molino Stucky Venise. The exhibition is organised by PDG Arte Communications under the patronage of the Italian Ministry for Cultural Assets and Activities and Tourism and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
<Open> showcase since 19 years sculptures and installations in the open air, in public spaces and unconventional spaces, that are open for the enjoyment of a heterogeneous public. For the second time in 19 years, <Open> will take place in the Molino Stucky, the most important example of industrial archaeology preserved in Venice. This interaction between the works of art and the public space, for lingering or passing through ,brings beauty into everyday life through the activation of the onlooker’s aesthetic perception with the consequent withdrawal of his usual rational interpretation of reality. Reflection becomes a constant in OPEN, as well as a challenge for the artist to create unprecedented expressive developments through the dialogue between work and space.
The artists taking part in the exhibition combine an extremely free use of the expressive medium to
illuminate the space at Molino Stucky: Among the participating artists: Liu Po Chun, Stefano Bressani , Giuseppe Verri , Li Chevalier, Yahon Chang, Lee Tsung-Jen, Verteramo, Carlo Nieddu and Tomas, Miresi , Federico Nero, Antonio Falduto .This year OPEN collaborates with curators Serena Mormino, Bianca Laura Petretto, Wen-i Yang and Carola Cometto.
