  • Anna Onesti

     

    Anna Onesti

    The Seeds Alphabet 2015 - The Seeds Alphabet 2017 - The Seeds Alphabet 2018

    Anna Onesti trained between Rome and Turin. You then undertook an articulated program of studies in Japan, India and Indonesia to learn the ancient methods of dyeing and restoring paper and acquire the knowledge of the symbolic meaning that accompanies the flight of kites in oriental cultures. Some of her works are exhibited in major exhibitions in Italy and abroad and she is also constantly active in the field of Cultural Heritage with International Institutions dedicated to safeguarding cultural heritage

    Technique: Washi paper and handmade Japanese paper combined with traditional Japanese fabric colouring techniques with the use of natural colours (the itjimezome, the shiborizome and the katazome).

    Artworks:

    The Seeds Alphabet 2015, Noren, digital print in 11 colors on Epson Japanese Kozo paper. A blue tale takes place on the work The Seed Alphabet (Noren), a tale made of flowers and phytomorphic forms. A partition that does not create a limit but a passage. A banner written with arborescent words, an alphabet made of flowers bloomed from mysterious seeds to make beautiful the word spoken and also the written word.

     

    opera.anna.onesti.2   

    The Seeds Alphabet 2017, 2 kites in Tsugaru style, digital print on washi paper, bamboo sticks and cotton threads. Two kites in Tsugaru style, a typology derived from the Japanese tradition, on the sheeting of paper are printed shapes referring to an alphabet made of flowers and phytomorphic shapes. The digital printing gives even more to these forms their calligraphic sense, their being writing, almost an X-ray of imaginary plant forms.

    • Kakou Imagawa

    • Kakou Imagawa

      Impermanence - The Gods of Wire - In Buddhism Six - Flower Shadow

      Kakou Imagawa has been an instructor of Calligraphy at several universities since 1997, after over forty years of study and performance perfecting her art of calligraphy. Kakou Imagawa is unique as an artist in that she chooses to produce the framework which creates an environment the calligraphy herself, preferring to control all aspects of the finished works, blending materials, such as antique Japanese fabrics from Kimono, Obi (Kimono Belt) and foil. This approach is a radical departure from what is typically found in contemporary calligraphy in Japan.

      Technique: ink and paper, pressed and rolled. For the frames, he uses a Japanese technique called "hyogu" which consists of gluing several layers of thin Japanese paper.

      Artworks: 

      Through his work, the artist wants to share his thoughts on the impermanence of all modern things. Nowadays, for example, paper dictionaries, once very important tools, are going out of use in favor of vocal translation systems, often destroying ancient knowledge. With his works, the artist wants to represent the damage done by materialism and the continuous and uncontrolled desire for progress. In "Fear and Desire" there is a translation from Buddhist scriptures and a gold plate that represents the damage that the machine of materialism causes to traditions and the environment.

    • Meyko Yokoyama

      Meyko Yokoyama

      Dream - Aneris - Butterfly 2 - Behind the Door - Being born again 2 - The tree of life

      Meiko Yokoyama is a Japanese artist who after graduating from the art faculty of the University of Kochi she moved to Florence where she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts. During her artistic career she invented an original technique which she gave the name of Washi-Arte: the image is created through the overlay and collage of Japanese paper, mainly of the Tengujo type (a paper known for its subtlety) and the installation of a backlight system that defines the immagine, currently she continues to develop the technique she devised and exhibits her works in Japan and Italy.

      Technique: Washi-Art (the image is created by overlapping and collage of Japanese paper, mainly Tengujo, a paper known for its thinness. The image is then created and defined thanks to a backlight system).

      Artworks: 

      The work Dream represents a girl lying on a carpet of flowers in Tuscany. The girl continues to dream with her eyes open deep in this beautiful colorful world, but at the same time she is trapped by her beauty. For the artist, in fact, Art is like a dream that she traps with her beauty, it is a beautiful enchantment. The work is made entirely with "Tengujo" colored Japanese paper.

      Yumiko Kido 

      The passage from matter to spirit

      Yumiko Kid was born in Japan in 1969 where she attended school and later began working as a production organizer of the TOHO theater in Tokyo. In 1993 she moved to Florence where she attended the Academy of Fine Arts and then the two-year course in Visual Arts and New Expressive Languages. Here she meets professor Luigi Doni who introduces her to the art of painting, an art that will become her muse to explain the meaning of her existence.

      Technique: fireink

      Artworks:

      Pyres and incense which by burning spread their contents in the form of smoke towards the sky, are still today considered a moment of union between this world and the other world, between matter and spirit, between sacrifice and God. To create, directly through fire, a symbol of communication, the chrysanthemum. A special mixture that the artist calls "fire ink" penetrates into paper, a porous material, and, upon lighting, a small crackling flame, with gusts of white smoke, engraves the profile of the flower on the sheet, with its thin petals.

      Davide Francesca

      The bride in paper

      La The multidisciplinary training and the continuous multi-linguistic expressive research that contemplates the use and development of all levels of man, lead Davide Francesca to be a complete all-round artist. In 2005 he gave life to the performative works inspired by the sanda "Butoh" and in particular to the project "Le Passant Considérable", a project played between performing arts and sociology to enhance and read the urban context of the cities in which it is realized. Part of this project is the performance "The Paper Bride". Since 2007 he has been a director, set designer and costume designer for both opera and theatre and dance, with particular reference to the Ligurian territory. Since 2011 he has also dedicated himself to "Cake Design" to "Sugar Art" and to "Body Caking", performative art of decorating the body using the real ice.

      PERFORMANCE:

      The bride in paper a is a performance by Davide Francesca born on the impressions of the Japanese Butoh dance. This dance, which is based on the slowness of the movements, leads the actor/dancer to cross the city and establish a relationship with the audience he casually meets. This allows him to deduce relationships between the various spaces crossed and between the various audiences that characterize them. In the "Performative Urban Survey" project, which allowed the artist to convey his interests in urban sociology, visual sociology and architecture, the spontaneous reactions of the public from which then deduce relationships between the different spaces crossed. This project is then channelled into "Le Passant Considérable", an installation experience of photos, audio and video that collect the public's impressions of all the performances made, including those of the artist Davide Dell'Osso.

        Spit the Toad

        Elisabetta Bonuccelli is a designer and artist born in Turin, but temporarily resident in Milan, where she opened Unokostudio in 2014, a creative space dedicated to her paper projects. His vocation for the processing of paper, and in particular for origami, arose from a set of encounters, interpersonal relationships (such as the one with Luisa Canovi) and travels (the many he did in Japan were decisive) that gradually approached her atthe use of paper as a means of expression.

        PERFORMANCE:

        Spit the Toad, people arrive at a specially set up space and are given a blank piece of paper and a pen. They are then invited to seclude themselves in the dedicated area and to write their fears and desires on the leaflet, freely and anonymously, with a particular focus on those that cannot be confessed, hence the name of the performance "Spit the Toad". Indeed, every person who writes the ticket is given an origami frog folded at the moment, as a form of receipt, as a reminder of the event. At the end of the performance, all tickets will be collected both digitally, for any future use and publications, and physically, to create a permanent installation.

His work is part of the Bugatti-Segantini International Collection, the LUME Collection, the Bank of Mexico Collection and the Homeira Goldstein Collection, USA.

        PERFORMANCE:

        I, the skin is the performance proposed by the Mexican artist Jacobo Alonso. Performance that relates the body and fire, two elements feared and desired: the flames, which are both awe and terror of their heat and their strength, and charm, for their colours and their liveliness. Thus, the body also has a dual aspect: the desire for living flesh and the fear of the inert body. The transience of a soft dance with a naked body imprinted on the soot gives life to shapes, impressions and traces, images as peaceful as they are disturbing, like the body and fire.

      Fashion, together with art, is one of the creative sectors in which research on materials is always taken to extremes.The constant push to overcome the limits and to identify new textile structures has led designers to the experimentation and use of unusual materials such as paper!

      This is why Lucca Biennale decided to include, within its sections, a special stage for Fashion, for all creative people who work on clothing and accessories made with the poor materials par excellence: paper and cardboard.Lot of people are able to achieve very surprising results, managing to create shapes, designs and fabrics that do not seem possible. In other cases these materials are so malleable and ductile that they no longer look like paper, turning into real pieces of haute couture!

Some of her works are exhibited in major exhibitions in Italy and abroad and she is also constantly active in the field of Cultural Heritage with International Institutions dedicated to safeguarding cultural heritage

        Technique: Washi paper and handmade Japanese paper combined with traditional Japanese fabric colouring techniques with the use of natural colours (the itjimezome, the shiborizome and the katazome).

        ARTWORK:

        4 Tapestries, itajimezome dye, gouache, sumi ink on washi paper mounted on linen. The works are made on paper (then mounted on linen) using decorative techniques inspired by the traditional dyeing of fabrics, such as itajimezome, shiborizome and katazome. These techniques, created for dyeing fabrics, are also used to dye paper. The history of paper in Japan has its roots in distant times thanks to contacts with China through Korea and thanks to the advent of Buddhism, officially introduced in 552. The tapestries are made using washi paper obtained from the processing of Kozo fibers and colors of plant origin such as the blue of the indigofera tinctoria (ai), the purple of the wood of Brazil (suwo), the red of the roots of robbia (Akane), the yellow of the tree of Amur (kihada), the brown of the alder fruits (yashiya), the green of the gall nuts (fushi), the black of the carbon ink (sumi). The long and soft fibres of washi paper have the ability to transmit depth to the materials used and to give the stains of color and traces of signs a light haze that softens the contours and smoothes the strokes transforming the color into a pulsating material. The colors have been exemplified in the works proposed, so here in the most subtle shades, the blue, red, purple and brown, each pair of Tapestries is associated with a season, in this I was inspired, the Japanese novel of the eleventh century "Genji monogatari" written by the lady Murasaki Shikibu lived in the Heian period, considered one of the masterpieces of Japanese literature as well as of all time literature. Artisanal paper production still preserves an extraordinarily lively manufacturing tradition in the East today, as well as the use of natural colors that have now returned to be produced in our territories. These materials, with their peculiarities and their versatility, have all the characteristics to adapt to a technological world very different from that of their origins. These works want to bring attention to these precious and unique materials whose development depends a lot on the quality of the environment and its proper ecological balance.

          Marcella Stilo was born in Calabria in 1983. She then moved to Rome where she studied Communication and where she works as a press officer and cultural events organizer. In response to the economic crisis of 2007-2013, she created, in the city of Milan, "Cartalana Gioielli di Carta", a project between craftsmanship, fashion and communication geared towards sustainability. Alone, she learned various techniques for processing paper, a recycled and fragile material, which however allows her to express and realize the richness of ideas.

          ARTWORK:

          The "Stone" or Cartalana collection is inspired by the South Italy landscape, the land of origin of the founder Marcella Stilo. These jewels created in spun paper like wool play on verticality. The components that recall the stone, representing a point of origin from which to start over to overcome the fears of existence, seem almost suspended around or within brass structures. This composition makes them "amulet-jewels" that stand out and enhance the eco-sustainable craftsmanship project behind them.

          Michela Alesi 

          Hero - New Gold Dream - Nouvelle arcadia - Kawagata Girl - Reina Roja - Almost me

          Michela Alesi made the collage technique her own in the 1990s, progressively improving it with a personal procedure. Her work has been influenced by theatrical transvestism, the illustrations by Ertè, the glossy photos by Serge Lutens as well as by the iconography of a certain 'fashion system', often standardizing. She succeeds by making it (literally) in pieces: by cutting it, chopping it up. Dismember it. Each work thus comes to life by engulfing, absorbing and transforming the glossy images of fashion magazines through surprising metamorphoses that give them new identities.

          ARTWORKS:

          "The creatures of my collages find a new dimension thanks to the decomposition and transformation of all those elements that, usually trapping them in the glossy pages of fashion, homologates them, making them serial individuals, without identity anymore. And this is how once in my collages they undergo a real mutation in the new dimension I created for them. To protect them, to free them. Forever. Through a new identity, I transform their cages into invincible armor. Salvific. "

          Sense of self - Passing Clouds Collection

          Born in São Paulo, Japanese descendant Renata Mayumi Fukuda graduated in Public Relations and worked in cinema and television for 10 years. In Lisbon, she found in jewelery the perfect path to combine her passion for manual work with the subtlety of oriental aesthetics present in all her pieces. Paper revealed itself as the main material and the artist explores in a unique direction its lightness and volume through different techniques. In this way she manages to break with the tradition of the predominant use of metal in jewelery and faces paper as a truly precious material.

          ARTWORK:

          Creating the Passing Clouds Collection with paper pulp allowed the artist to understand and to respect the complexity of her material. Also it helps in taking a step back and studying the time required by the drying process, working with the natural transformation of the surface, generating this unique and organic skin, makes these jewels much more original and precious than traditional metal ones.

          "Capodimonte - Omaggio a Napoli"

          Susy Manzo is a Milanese artist of Neapolitan origins who is working on the fragility and lightness of paper. Susy Marzo is inspired by everyday life in the production of his works, trying to create artistic projects that reflect popular customs and traditions and highlight social aspects such as discomfort, diversity and discrimination. "Giochi di Ruolo" (2012) and "Storie Sospese" (2016) were her most important collections.

          ARTWORKS: 

          The work is a tribute to Naples, the artist's birthplace. This work can be worn and it is composed with paper and tissue paper and made with the technique of kraft paper and paper cutting. The artist's intent is to create a female figure placed in timeless and space-less places, to tell imaginary and unreal realities. The delicacy of these figures is contrasted by detailed, often strong and explicit details.

          HOMO EXODUS

          Brigitte Amarger is an artist born in Paris in 1954, where she studied art. In the beginning. she used to create textile, mural or sculptural works that explore the themes of light, nature, human being and his memory. Then, she began to explore new techniques, such as the use of luminescent materials, cutting, hot glue, up to x-ray engraving which, combined with the use of waste materials, will lead her to success and the creation of installations in international artistic contexts since 1978.

          ARTWORK: 

          A crowd of similar and different humans, driven by both fear and hope, united in a single forward movement in search of a new land to live in, on a long road "By-way / Par-chemin", schedule of the memory, where the traces of their exodus are engraved. Each body is cut into papers of different texture and thickness, previously engraved with motifs that evoke either tattoos, scars, clothes or textile prints, thus giving it its own identity and fragility.

          Easy and Effective 

          Camilla Gurgone was born in Lucca, where she attended high school with an artistic focus. Then moved to Rome where she attended RUFA (Rome University of Fine Arts) and in 2020 she participated in an Erasmus project that led her to continue her education in Bilbao, at the Facultad de Bellas Artes. So she began her career as an artist between Rome and Bilbao, participating in competitions and events of international relevance such as the "International Contemporary Ceramic Award" in Zaragoza, "Jarguar Road Show" in Rome and many others.

          ARTWORK:

          Easy and Effective is a vast project that includes installations, silkscreen prints, zines and videos. The idea comes from the parallelism that the artist creates between memory and thermal paper. Just as the mind does with memories, what is printed on the thermal paper is destined to disappear, so the artist begins the gesture of printing his own memories, his everyday life on it with images, texts, sounds and events that involve. Some memories fade, but others remain etched. The artist then proposes a way in which it is possible to eliminate them, namely the use of heat sources such as household appliances, also giving life to interactive performances. These installations are made even more spectacular and publicized thanks to the use of posters, brochures, presentations and video tutorials.

          Faded Memory: we all carry memories of loss, fear, unrequited passion that accompany us and shape our lives. Shadow: shadows scare me, dark bodies that follow me, block the light, reveal my fears. Going away: the wolves wander between us and within us - no one can escape them. Memory 2021: in my dreams I am lost, am I coming or going? Hovering, weightless, transported in the unknown.

          Etats D'Ame

          Daria Krotova  is a Russian artist who lives and works between the south of France and Moscow. She graduated in Neuropsychology and Art History and his training focused on the study of the interaction between text and image in the Russian avant-garde. He works mainly in the field of sculpture and installations, using supports such as ceramics, paper and textiles, materials that reflect the fragile and perishable nature of everything. The artist's goal is to represent real living forms, exploring the semantic continuum between what in English is called "Still life" and in French "Nature Death", the temporality that makes things unique, subtle and dramatic.

          ARTWORK:

          Etats D'Ame is a series of works created specifically for the Lucca Biennale 2021, as a continuation of a project started in 2011, exhibited for the first time at the London exhibition dedicated to Russian art "Saatchi". The form of the heart, the protagonist of this series, is itself a metaphor of the different spiritual and psychological states of a person, and not only of his physiological state. It is a strong image that expresses the difficult relationships between oneself and others, between oneself and the world.

          Elisabetta Bonuccelli is a designer and artist born in Turin, but temporarily resident in Milan, where she opened Unokostudio in 2014, a creative space dedicated to her paper projects. Her vocation for the processing of paper, and in particular for origami, arose from a set of encounters, interpersonal relationships (such as the one with Luisa Canovi) and travels (the many he did in Japan were decisive) that gradually approached her atthe use of paper as a medium of expression.

          ARTWORK:

          A process of transformation in four "acts", inspired by the checkerboard garden designed by Mirei Shigemori for the Tofuku-ji temple in Kyoto. Made with an alternation of stone and moss slabs, the traditional checkerboard pattern degrades until it disappears, creating a perfect fusion of Zen philosophy and abstract art. In the same way the paper, folded with the origami technique of tessellation, becomes the representation of this tension towards detachment, the Nothing, the 'mu'.

          Elise Wehle is an American artist. She graduated from Brigham Young University and during her study path she travelled all around the south of Spain. During this journey, she was fascinated by the decorative patterns in the ancient mosques in the little towns of Andalusia, once discovered the power of pattern, she began to incorporate dense repetitions of patterns within her works by repeatedly cutting them within her drawings and paintings.Whele's works have been exhibited internationally in both Europe and the United States

          ARTWORKS:

          Elise Wehle artworks' relate about intricate decorative patterns on paper made with the use of the cutter, a very time-consuming activity. However, in this length and concentration she finds her utmost interest: with each shape or line that she cuts out, practising repeated movements with her hands, her creative process is transformed into a meditative act. The weariness that comes from her art, however, is rewarded by the greater awareness and clarity that this activity leaves her. The works she exhibits are three: Marks in the Glass, a hand-cut photograph measuring made in 2017; Manifestation 2, hand-cut graphite drawing on mulberry paper from 2020 and Manifestation 3 hand-cut watercolour painting on Kizuki Kozo paper created in 2021.

She attended the School of Art and Design in Valenza and she is memeber of the collective of artists of the Verchaus Castle. Her soft print works, in addition to questioning engraving as a graphic and poetic medium through the theme of cancellation and self-cancellation, offer fascinating stories about the female world and memory.

          ARTWORK:

          Traversée is an installation of 10 "bandeau" works of the size of 2mx60cm. With this work, the artist wishes to let the visitors experience the "printing in situ", making them experience the 'passage into the depths' of paper, half immobile, unlimited, but crossed by paths and movements. Offer a 'site-specific' installation in which the engravings unfold in space, inviting the viewer to experience the device with the senses. Portraits like so many bodies of exile, of the feminine, of desire that face the viewer and question him openly.

          The works Quo Vadis, Social Loliness, Square Globes, Dummy, Listen In, Taking The Wind Out, Pullingyour Weight, Now What, Locked In that Eszer Bornemisza will exhibit at the Lucca Biennale were all created during the pandemic and they all reflect on what this historical period has brought out. In particular, Dummy, is the abstract reproduction in clay of dried paper of a head with the tongue out. The latter connects to an arm that protrudes on the back, the arm that controls it. Dummy offers a reflection on the world of information and journalism and on the hunger for news that increasingly characterizes it.

Recycling cardboard packaging to produce works that reflect on issues of social relevance

          ARTWORK:

          This work was conceived as part of a collection Visit to the Sacred Tomato, collection that was suppose to reflect on the 'glittering world' we live in, metaphorized in a 'Sacred Tomato'. However, his creation was blocked by the pandemic and this makes the artist veer towards a rethinking of the work, which instead focuses on a reflection linked to the theme of migrants and the inhuman conditions and slavery to which they are condemned.

He builds through apparently illegible voids that are perceived and reconstructed by the interstices that describe their absence.

Subsequently he had the opportunity to receive a one-year artistic residency at "FABRICA" and to collaborate for Benetton.

          ARTWORK:

          The artist stimulates the viewer to think about how much time we spend inside 4 walls to understand how important space is for us and how much the space and the objects inside it talk about ourselves. For the artist, paper is in fact the support on which to report their dreams, and with which they can give them shape. Every morning for a month he drew an object he dreamed of during the night, and then gave it life through the paper itself. Each object belongs to a dream, and each dream has a story linked to an object

          For the Biennale she has created a work titled, "Sleep walker," which imagines form and movement in the space that exist between the extremes of fear and desire.

          The work that will be presented at the Biennale 2021 represents a cloud made of money that floats over our entire living existence. We never got rid of it; almost nothing we do is spared from the power and influence of these clouds. It is the oil that moves human civilization. Viewers walk through a dense forest of clouds made of money, immersed and lost in illusion, not realizing that money has taken their imagination completely, and has become the most important element that feeds reality.

          Hybris 

          Matteo Raciti is an artist of Sicilian origins who, after earning a Master's Degree in Architecture at the University of Catania in 2015, began his career as a sculptor. Sculpture for him is a way to tell stories, to give voice and eternity to his land and to everything that characterizes his gaze towards the world. Since 2017 he has been making itinerant papier-mâché sculptures for the Viareggio Carnival and is part of the artistic collective "INTRECCIArte" of Pietrasanta. Current events, social satire and fantasy certainly distinguish his work.

          OFFICINA CHIODO FISSO

          Emanuele Radicchi is an iron, wood and papier-mâché craftsman of Apulian origins who, after attending the School of Carpentry and Restoration (ATANOR) in Bologna, created in 2017 the "space of his ideas", or the OfficinaChiodoFisso ( BA). In 2019 Alessio Verdolino joins him as a partner. After graduating in Architectural Sciences at the Roma Tre University, he obtained a Master's in Advanced Architecture at the Univeristat Politecnica de Catalunya.

          ARTWORK:  

          Fear and desire for Matteo Raciti, Emanuele Radicchi and Alessio Verdolino is Hybris. The ambitious arrogance, typical of the archaic Greek world, which leads man to go beyond his own limits, to challenge fate and the gods, to overcome the most hidden fears, to rebel against the established order, in order not to betray its nature. Eyes of the supreme are watching every movement carefully and when man, blinded by greed, oversteps the limit and fails, he incurs what is called "envy of the gods" (fthònos theòn). At the same time those who do not exploit their abilities approach the world of beasts. This guilt brings society back to limbo, engulfs the intuition, resizes every momentum, destroying the personal drive. The desperate and provocative flight of Icarus is the moving image of the individual need to reach a dream, a desire as unattainable as the sun, the extreme mirage that pushes each of us to go beyond judgment to honor our own existence.

          In-between  

          The Paper Atelier is an artistic duo composed by Türker Akman, who studied architecture and Deniz Yılmaz Akman who instead studied sociology. Together, they are creating paper sculptures and installations.

          ARTWORK:

          While thinking about the theme "Fear&Desire", the story of "1001 Nights" appeared in their minds. And focused on Shahryar's dilemma about the fear of being cheated on and the desire to hear the end of the never-ending tales of Scheherazade. They decided to reflect this in-between situation with a wire walker scene. The fear of falling down and desire to hear the end of the tales push Shahryar to walk across the wire. The artists want to reflect on two different fear factors with this piece. Firstly, the character's hardly balancing posture will reflect the fear of falling. Secondly, the viewer's fear of passing under the massive looking sculpture.

          Crossing borders 

          The artist have been experimenting with cardboard and papier mâché as a sculpting medium for about eight years. He has evolved a strong interest in exploring architecture and the anatomy of the human body using only cardboard these days.

          ARTWORK:

          For Lucca Biennale 2021 he will build a bull, using architectural elements existing in the city of Lucca to emphasize the story that has inspired him: the greek myth of Europa. Europa was a princess, in what is now Syria and Lebanon. In the myth, Zeus, disguised as a bull, takes the princess across the Mediterranean sea, hence creating the cultural seed that has become the western civilisation. Europa was in a way a refugee, escaping the rage of the goddess Hera, and the bull as the vessel that made her journey possible. The artist find interesting, the way that the myth reminds us today about the refugees making the same journey to the ports of Europe.

          The Amazon

          María Dolores del Sol Ontalba & Antonio Nardozzi collaborate on both research in the field of architecture and in the analysis of complex geometries and technics through TOMA!, a building workshop where most of their work is based on the application of experimental concepts to design and architecture at any scale. Backed by their distinct paths and various experiences, in a continuous exchange and confrontation, they try to enrich each other by encouraging further common thinking. Over the years, TOMA! [team of manufacturers architects] allowed them to share ideas and points of view on architecture and the most urgent social issues related to it.

          ARTWORK:

          The work presented for Lucca Biennale 2021, shows a large forest where we find that trees are made from the remains of cardboard boxes. Fear and desire coexist together in a small artificial forest. Those boxes that populate our homes and we can't wait to open, often contain objects of desire induced by consumerism and advertisements, superfluous objects protected by a precious material such as paper. In the current scenario of deforestation and strong climatic changes, the amazon wants to make people think about the thin thread that binds desire and fear, consumption and pollution, useful and useless.

          Paola Margherita was born in 1970 in Rome. She obtained her degree in Art and Sculpture in Naples. Her artworks for the Bienniale are “Asina” and “Palma” that speak of female behaviour in our society. “Asina” was born from the artist’s desire to encourage women to escape from the heavy load that society weighs her down with. A woman must conserve her animal and irrational instinct to defend herself, even by kicking violently to keep her independence and nature autonomos and alive. “Palma” represents a girl who is tracing her entire life in the air, from her toes to the tip of her hair. In this way, past and present are melted in a single gesture.

She has a degree in architecture, she decided to follow her passion for painting and drawing through the use of recycled paper, cardboard and wood, dealing with various topics. At the Biennale she presents artworks which deal with the transformation of our individual identity and also that of society. Her works are made with the technique of collage and drawing to underline how the chaos of all the information we receive is changing our identity, forcing us into a continuous state of uncertainty. These works also wish to give viewers the opportunity to reflect on the use of the female image and identity in advertising or in consumerist society.

          Gianluca Traina is an Italian artist born in 1984. He studied fashion design in Milan and then in Barcelona, but he currently lives in Sicily. The theme of his art relates to the term “race” which generates conflicting reactions, caused by media influence and ignorance expressed through social media and public debate. The term “race” must be used only for the differences between species and not for humans. Today skin colour, physique and gender are used only to mark differences, that’s why the artist has chosen to deal with chaotic information that invades society. He wishes to introduce the concept of equality through art, and make the spectator think about the differences between genders and skin colour.

          Born in Verona in 1949, he lived in Florence in the 70s where he obtained a degree in architecture. In his recent works he uses the fragility of cardboard as a metaphor to reflect on immigration. He’s taking part in the Biennale with artworks that highlight a moment, that are talking to the silence and telling the drama, the tragedy, that hits millions of people that are running away from war. But tehir presence generates a confused and irrational murmur in our society, or just a guilty complicit silence. Information and silence don’t always have negative connotations, it is also necessary to know the phenomenons and it is the first step to finding a solution. Silence in front of a tragedy means respect, finding silence inside of ourselves helps us communicate with different people and it allows us to understand points of view that are distant from us.

At the moment she lives and works in Germany. “Interferences” is born from the casual meeting of lines. She uses cardboard models, line tracks and vibrations as if the pen is a musical instrument. In fact musical composition techniques have had a big influence on Maribel’s creativity. That’s why she uses material such as paper and ink. Paper has become an animated element, while her work takes shape. Maribel uses printing techniques such as lithography and serigraphy with Japanese handmade paper. In her works, the artist invites the visitor to think about the multiplicity and transience of things, or just invites the eye to interact with the lines.

          Olga Danelone  was born in Udine in 1964. She studied arts and media in Udine and Urbino. She works as a painter and she has studied oriental and western philosophy. At the Biennale she presents: “Inclusione”: the quantum and the indetermination of time and how it embraces the niche in which we live, that has no limits and that extends itself to all of the world. The entire population is a chaos of meetings and exchanges, a chaos that we need to manage to obtain silence and capture a fleeting moment, a transformation. She is also presenting “Trofallassi” (a scientific way to describe insects’ communication). The piece represents the increment of the population with its movements, a flow of contacts without contact, talking without talking, seeing others or just ourselves.

For the Biennale, she uses the image of ancient objects to communicate decadence, their ability to survive damage and the beauty of imperfection, even if she gives the viewer freedom to interpret her artworks. The claim of time, the inevitable destruction and decadence combine silence and chaos giving birth to new things.

He is taking part in the Biennale with artworks that belong to his “Neometrie” series, in which numbers are used as a medium to express the contrast between what is true and what is false, the inseparable relationship between science and faith, the connection between single units and multiple phenomenons, between chaos and reason. When creating his works, he uses a mosaic technique using pieces that create geometric shapes with each other, placed depending on the number of spaces, colors and formations. The final result depends on the firmness of the single representations.

          Born in Padua in 1992, he found a passion for art through graffiti. He studied art in Venice, then taking on a project in Venezuela teaching graffiti techniques to local children, followed by a masters degree in Lisbon in public sculpture. The artworks presented at the Biennale represent: Silence: the metamorphosis of paper as a material which is transforming itself through a cycle, as happens in nature. Chaos: noise created by the transformation and intended also as the reaction of people who distance themselves from metamorphosis and refuse the concept of life and death. These artworks also have a social message because the technique of origami was born thanks to the Chinese immigrants in America that during their imprisonment  awaiting integration,  started to create traditional paper shapes. This story is necessary to explain the contrast between populations that emigrate and those that receive them today, and aims to communicate a message of peace that can be transmitted through art.

          Korean artist born in 1976, he has a degree in sculpture at Chosun University. He started to work with poor material such as rubber, straw and then paper. This interest in low cost, poor material that is available to everybody was stimulated by the artist’s idea of human weakness in society and his desire to overcome it. Paper through its properties (transparency, popularity, warmth, smoothness etc.) seems to be more similar to the sensitive nature of humans than any other material. The artist identifies with this poor and incomplete material by trying to overcome its weaknesses and increasing its strengths. In Palazzo Ducale, the ratist presents the works “Abandoned dog”, “Island 001-1” and “Island 002-1”.

          Anne Vilsbøll, Danish artist and author, has been making handmade paper as an artistic means of expression since the early 80s. The artist believes that paper is a material that accommodates most of the requirements artists may place on the material for graphics, paintings, sculpture, photo, installation, interior decoration, fashion, furniture, books, music and performance. Works expressed in and with paper have a clear and definable style. Paperism is an art form in its own right. For the Biennale, the artists participates with artworks that aim to demonstrate that it is possible to print on highly structured surfaces that have excellent tactile qualities. These works provoke a reflection on the meaning of silence, as the figures in the paintings appear to be silent, but behind their apparent calm there are questions with chaotic answers.

Her artworks deal with the topic of weakness and stress caused by motherhood and post partum depression. She compares domesticity and femininity with the chaos and isolation of which nobody wants to talk. She creates a contrast between a perfect surrounding and abstract women that appear in conversation with themselves through the combination of empty images, cuttings from magazines or books and women taken from ancient and contemporary drawings, with a print technique of blurring, and different textures. The titles of the artworks have been taken from real experiences of women who told their own stories about postpartum depression in the broadcast “Terrible, thanks for asking”.

She creates her artworks with handmade flax paper, because she considers it easy to mould, and she combines painting with sculpture and sewing in order to emphasise her artistic approach, which is based on the emotions, situations and thoughts we all have. Raija observes the relationship between physical and emotional environment and she often represents the details of the human body through roots and branches connecting nature to the human body. She finds the analogy between material and immaterial and our bodies cause us to ask ourselves which is the limit between physicality and emotivity.

          Giada Ambiveri is a young artist born in 1991, she studied art and later she obtained a degree in Architecture. She has been inspired by Italo Calvino’s story: ‘’The Invisible Cities’’ to create the artwork ‘’Suspended Cities’’ made with recycled cardboard and other recycled materials. She used the urban waste to communicate that from these society rebuilds itself like an urban crust that covers the wounds of the Earth. Her artworks represent urban society which is founded on the ruins of the past, and is destroying the Earth that at the same time is regenerating itself just like human skin regenerates itself from the wounds. The city becomes a metaphor of a life that is led in total chaos, but also in loneliness. The use of paper in this case represents the silent origin and Earth’s memory, while the fact that the piece is suspended represents the liveliness of the city’s inhabitants who change their shape and condition constantly.

          Katarzyna Lyszkowska is Polish artist and art teacher born in 1981. The artist explores individual and collective identity, the connection it has with the universe and the importance of every person. Her artistic representation captures stories and biographies. The artist’s work at the Biennale is anthropomorphic, based on a strong cultural symbolism. The viewer is an indispensable part of the installation, he generates a situation of reception, he co-creates the artwork, becoming the axis mundi of each house. “House of cards” aims to be a combination between creation and destruction, representing an emotion, a chaotic world. Every representation captures a moment of life, like a doll house, that is reminiscentof childhood or a cage that represents adolescence in which one feels imprisoned, as it protects and suffocates at the same time.

          German artist born in 1957, she has a degree in Art. She uses paper as a means of communication that connects different cultures and religions to art. Her objective is to gain a reaction from the viewers by making them reflect on the values that society needs. The work presented at the Biennale is the result of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan on 11th March 2011 in which more than 19.000 people died. The piece speaks of the chaos created by this disaster, and the silence held towards it that the world has shown in recent years. A silence that has been spread on the chaos like a red carpet. We have become deaf to this subject and we turn our backs looking for peace outside and inside our heads. The artist sees her installation as an appeal against oblivion.

It aims to build harmonious and sustainable environments, carrying forward Chinese spiritual traditions, fostering international and domestic cooperation, and helping to create a bright future for their country. The project presented at the Biennale by the College of Architecture and Urban Planning is based on the traditional Chinese “Ting” buildings, where people used to stop and rest. These buildings are without walls to offer the visitor the necessary space. The cardboard architecture takes inspiration from Roman arches and traditional elements that reinforce the structure. In this way, the traditional Chinese building are fused with Roman archways. The structure planned by the students is composed of a large space, a medium sized one and one part for kids to emphasize the various sizes. The three spheres appear completely different inside.  This project aims to underline closure to the outside world and the lack of communication. For this reason the top part of the pentagon has been removed and some windows have been inserted that connect the inside to the outside.

          Han Ho is a Korean artist, he obtained his degree in art in Paris. His artistic approach is based on escape from reality, made up of ideologies, prejudice and traditions. The escape takes place thanks to the world of dreams, which the artist believes to be the main instrument that our body and mind use to regenerate psychic traumas. Dreams are strongly connected to reality as they are an expression of our emorions, sensations and memories, but they are also connected to the surreal world of our fantasy.Dreams are what connects us with our ego, helping us explore and freely express ourselves. Psyche is represented in the artist’s works as light, used as a means to enhance the subject. At the Biennale he is presenting the piece “Eternal  Light - Cosmos”.

When creating his works, Oliver challenges time and refuses the idea that an artist must have a technical approach. The artist creates his works letting himself be guided by chance, by his instinct and ideas that come naturally to him, for this reason he uses any kind of material. His  pieces generally resemble archeological relics and this is due to his unusual style. The works he is presenting at the Biennale, “Geistergeldrüstung 1” and “Geistergeldrüstung 2”, spring from the artist’s ironic approach to the effect that money can have on the soul and spirit of a human being.

          James Lake is a British artist. He was forced to interrupt his studies as he was diagnosed with cancer and was subsequently forced to receive a leg amputation. He managed to obtain his degree once he had recovered, but to overcome the difficult convalescence, he taught himself sculpture with cardboard, then teaching his technique in various schools. James thinks art should be an instrument that unites society, and cardboard can knock down barriers that have been present up till now. Cardboard is also the material that elevates the artist the most, in fact he is presenting his self portrait at the Biennal, representing himself at work. The message imparted is that art can flower in a moment of chaos, such as a moment of illness, and can be exhibited in chaotic places like societies, but in the moment of work the artist finds himself alone in a room by himself, and finds inner peace.

          Jakub Novák is a Slovakian artist born in 1986. After obtaining a degree in architecture, he began working as a lecturer, but left this to dedicate himself entirely to his artworks. His work Life Space is a demonstration of how life can be compared to a closed space that each one of us fills with things that we consider special. These things, which aren’t definitive, may change with time because of events that change our point of view. They become our refuge, where we retreat to meditate, to find interior peace and recharge before diving back into the chaos of everyday life. Our life space is a geometric composition. What seems expressive and surprising when examined up close becomes a palpable modular system, whilst when seen from far away it gains a new shape, making us examine ourselves and isolate ourselves from chance.

          Wu Wai Chung studied architecture in Hong Kong and then London. She’s passionate about interacting with her audience through her innovative architectural pieces. “No more message” consists in a tunnel like structure, with the internal walls covered in pyramids to reduce the sound waves to a minimum. Visitors can try and communicate from one end to the other, but the sound will not travel clearly. The piece aims to make us contemplate how sometimes we would like to communicate something, but because of certain filters we cannot and we can’t be understood, in this way the silence we take refuge in generates chaos.

          Eugénie Tazé-Bernard was born in 1989, she is a French-Peruvian sculptor and set designer. In her pieces, she combines human anatomy with that of animals (the human body is used so that the visitor relates to the art piece whilst the animal anatomy is a symbol of the individual’s internal emotions). With her “Turtle Woman”, the artist presents a vision of a chaotic world overcome by modern life, inviting the spectator to contemplate what could happen to the future of humankind. It sparks the idea of human bodies adapting to new shapes that could cover them and become a protection, a way to escape, to stay in silence and connect with oneself. A sort of shield that shows the inevitable adaptation of mankind to this modern era.

          Dosshaus is the creative collaboration of Zoey Taylor and David Connelly, artists whose work blends painting, sculpture, photography, fashion, video and performance. From the outset, the pair has been interested in the intersection of high and low culture. For Biennale they have created the piece “Path of Paradox”: a grand piano bisected by a coin that appears to have fallen from the sky. The edge of the coin serves as a guillotine, effectively silencing the musical instrument. The message that comes from the artwork has been taken by William Blake’s famous admonition “Where any view of money exists art cannot be carried on, but war only.”  When money is wielded as a weapon against art, the resulting chaos leaves only silence in its wake.

          The sights and sounds of the cosmos - Mercato del Carmine

           

          Ankon Mitra is an Indian designer and architect born in 1982. He obtained a degree in design at The Bartlett, University College London. He is passionate about the technique of origami, and tries to integrate it with interior design, writing a book about it called “Questioning Architecture” in which he demonstrates how the Universe itself is a shape that folds and unfolds. Ankon Mitra is taking part in the Biennale with an artwork that recreates the dynamicity of the Universe. It makes the visitor contemplate the spectacular events that occur in the universe, how comets falling, black holes colliding and galaxies merging create a magnificent chaos that transforms our cosmos into a galactic dance, but to our eyes it appears silent. We can enjoy images of color and shapes that come from the universe, but we cannot listen to two stars collide. For us this chaos is silent.

          Liminal Space - Piazza Guidiccioni

           

          Manuela Granziol is a Swiss artist and economist, after moving to London with her family she followed herpassion for art. The art piece presented at the Biennale explores the unknown relationship between language and non-language, between communication of any kind and silence. A teenage girl sits on the ground with her head between her legs. Being a teenager represents a moment in which society, media, parents and peers exert pressure on the young girl. Creating this piece using small packages, she wants to represent the complexity of human existence. The various experiences and events that every human lives are fragments (memories, images, texts, people they have met) which make them part of something else, creating a chaotic subjectiveness

        Network Days

         

        For its ninth edition, Lucca Biennale organized the Network Days: 2 days of events, conferences, performances, screenings and refreshments dedicated to the world of Paper Art.

        The Network Days were held on the 3rd and 4th August in the centre of Lucca, and welcomed artists, designers, architects, gallery owners, curators and other professionists of the sector. The perfect occasion for those looking to meet and engage with other art professionals, to acquire new knowledge and enrich their personal experiences.

        The Network days took place starting from Friday 3rd August at 5:00 p.m. at the Museo della via Francigena, and Saturday 4th August at Palazzo Ducale.

        Among the guests there were the artists exhibited at the Biennale, representatives of Sofia Paper Art Fest, IAPMA (International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists), China Design Centre e dell'Asian Pacific Design Federation.

        The first day of Network Days talked about "Paper Art: boundaries and possibilities", with the participation of the Indoor artists of the Biennale (Paola Margherita, Gianfranco Gentile, Gianluca Traina, Manuela Granziol) and Edoardo Malagigi (professor at the Art Academy in Florence).

        The second conference spoke of the Design emergency project: how cardboard can be used in the design and architecture world to face current emergencies, discussed by  Nicolas Bertoux (international sculptor and designer) and Giusy Emiliano (representative of FAO). Nicolas Bertoux also presented his project "Pirouette": a cardboard tent that is foldable, transportable and cheap, to stimulate a discussion on current housing emergencies.

        During the first day of the Network Days a moment of conviviality among the participants was held: an aperitif offered on the walls of Lucca, during which, between a glass of Prosecco and a local delicacy, the guests mingled, an opportunity to exchange experiences and contacts.

        The first day concluded with a performance by Martina Zena: "Play Human", an audio visual perfomance that tells the story of life, from birth to death, through sounds, videos and the creation of eight monotypes.
