Gilda Mautone: Street View

The exhibition presents a selection of Gilda Mautone’s latest works, installation sculptures of fabric and ceramics. In this exhibition Gilda wanted to use sculpture as a technique showing a strong line with this medium as well. The works very accurate and entirely handmade by her without any help, are very complex and rich in details. This methodical and detailed work becomes in her analytical gestuality, a sort of “test” that the artist passes during the work, it is also the representation of the balance that can be obtained from energy control.

About the artist

Gilda Mautone’s work is linked to the emotional sphere of the human being who lives and survives in a society that constantly confronts him with his own weaknesses and fears. The most negative aspects of it predominate, such as dissociation, resentment, nostalgia, and regret. These sensations make the individual monsterroidal, deformed in his expressions almost prey to an obsession, or to a dazed and distorted dream. The road almost always, or phytomorphic elements, are the background, wanting to be a way to alleviate or accentuate these aspects. She uses different media, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, and installations to have greater ease of expression and to give further aesthetic strength to the represented object and its single meaning. The photos are mainly taken from the street, a diary of signs, objects and places found by chance but which tell of a past experience, abandoned on solitary street corners. As well as the sculptures obtained from crocheting, and embroidery, consisting of scraps of fabric found in flea markets or made from old lived-in clothes and then thrown away.  Everything has its own meaning, a previous life, a past to tell.

Comfort Stops

Spend a day wandering around a large art fair or a city’s galleries, and you will need the odd ‘comfort break’. In Berlin recently, however, there were several interesting works featuring the process itself.
