The exhibition "Between space and surface"
by Arthur Duff, Ludovico Bomben and Francesco Candeloro
between space and surface

With the exhibition dedicated to three artists whose training took place at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia, the institution’s exhibition space, Magazzino del Sale 3, reopens.

After the long pause due to the consequences of the pandemic, the opening exhibition “Between space and surface” touches on complex issues concerning fundamental questions of artistic composition: the relationship between two and three-dimensionality, between empty and full, including light as a medium between reality and perception. The very location of the works, or rather their position in the exhibition environment, creates an in-between space, a sort of visual dialogue that produces additional spaces, both perceptive and interpretative.

The disposition of the rooms of the Magazzino has favored the arrangement of the works in distinct nuclei, allowing each artist to propose its own set of works. The exhibition theme thus becomes both a wide-ranging reflection on the relationship between space and surface (and light, considering some of the neon works on display), and a way to understand how the same theme can account for the distinct formal solutions that characterize the individual lines of research.

The exhibition path is opened by a selection of works by Arthur Duff, works that privilege a space-cosmic relationship. It continues through the rarefied environment of Ludovico Bomben, to conclude in the kaleidoscope of urban spaces proposed by Francesco Candeloro.

The exhibition includes wall-mounted works, installations and neon works, with the latter present in each of the three sessions of the itinerary, underlining the role of light as the medium par excellence between space, surface and perception.
