ArteFiera, Bologna

ProjectB will bring to ArteFiera 2018 a solo project by the Italian artist Ivan De Menis, whose language is shaped by resin and color, in a game that recalls Veneto tonalism, thus becoming a symbol for the artist’s strong bond with his origins.

TINDAR

Intervista

Carlotta Loverini Botta intervista il giovane artista italiano Tindar sul suo lavoro e sulla sua nuova serie The Trace Project, che verrà presentata al Premio Cairo dal 10 al 13 novembre a Palazzo Reale a Milano.

TOM ANHOLT

Conversation between artist, gallerist and curator

Ancient Games, the ancient game of “doing painting”: twelve oils on view in Milan, at the gallery ProjectB, narrate how to pour a story into a gesture, the personality of the artist, the freedom of imagination of those who enjoy and observe that gesture.

Two hands appear against the backdrop of a green forest; paint and brushstrokes depict the instant between sleep and waking, while profiles of familiar figures move on a distant horizon, the place where the kingdom of Tom Anholt is born.

TINDAR

SHOW AND TRACES

In April ProjectB will present the first solo show by the young Italian artist Tindar. 

The “Radici” (Roots) start with the artist’s reflections on culture, our identity as living beings, as humans, as westerners. To aptly express this concept, Tindar uses tree roots as a symbol, drawing them on the pages of historic texts that form the basis of our civilization, like religious scriptures or the Divine Comedy.
The relationship between nature and truth is equally important for this series of works. “Concrete, silent and powerful substance: this is the teaching nature grants me and before which I bow my head.”
