Museo Marino Marini

Andrea Kvas

Evento inserito nella rassegna (eng) Early One Morning

EARLY ONE MORNING, the annual exhibition program of the Museo Marino Marini, conceived by artistic director Alberto Salvadori, continues with Campo. The exhibition is a new project by Italian artist Andrea Kvas, curated by Barbara Casavecchia, opening on Friday, February 8, 2013.
Kvas intervenes in the underground Sacello (Chapel) of the Museum. He occupies it with a new series of works, consisting of elements in polyurethane foam and wood, reworked on site and therefore “in progress” until the day of the opening. Campo is Kvas’s first solo show in an Italian museum. For Kvas, work is a process that arises from the tension of the “campo” in which it takes shape: it could be the studio, or the exhibition space, which Kvas often asks to use for extended periods before the opening of a show, in order to turn it into a functional space, no longer untouched, at hand. Kvas works simultaneously with a multitude of materials, without hierarchies: acrylic, water-based paints, enamels, asphalt, natural and synthetic pigments, acrylic resins, glue, flour, marble dust, shellac, synthetic latex, polyurethane, peraluman, galvanized iron, stainless steel, aluzinc, pre-painted iron, wood, cotton, linen, acrylic silicone, bituminous elastomer, linoleum, floors, walls… He alters and hybridizes them various times. Often, he reworks the same pieces after some time to avoid focusing his practice on a single object and to develop a fluid ‘posture.’
