HELEN MIRRA Walking and weaving

GIANNI PETTENA Natural Architecture

Duration: 22nd July – 24th September, 2017
Opening:  21st July, 2017 8 o'clock pm
Curated by:  Christiane Rekade

From 22 July -24 September 2017 Merano Arte will host two exhibitions: The American artist Helen Mirra (born 1970 in Rochester, New York, lives in northern California) and Gianni Pettena (born 1940 in Bolzano, lives in Florence).

Although they work quite differently they have one discussion in common: the landscape and our relationsship to nature. In addition both exhibitions create a relationship between the landscape in the USA and South Tyrol; places they have both personally experienced.

Helen Mirra‘s artistical approach is usally based on long walks or excursions lasting several weeks. Her experiences, impressions but also artefacts of her travels she transforms in operas: minimal objects and sculptures, photos, textfragments or as in her last production woven objects.

Although he has been livinge in Florence since his childhood South Tyrol’s landscape is fundamental for his artistic work and his comprehension of architecture; Pettena calls it „my school of architecture“. The exhibition in Merano shows us his relationship with the landscape of his native country. Merano Arte shows a selection of photos, drawings and installations in addtition he developed a very specific installation only for Merano Arte. undefinedmore...
