“MOVIMENTO DELLE COSE”
CURATED BY ALBERTO ZANCHETTA
18th FEBRUARY – 30th APRIL 2011
inauguration Friday 18th February at 6pm
catalogue available in gallery
With a selection of around twenty medium and large works, the Dep Art gallery of Milan pays homage to Eduarda Emilia Maino (Milan, 1930-2004), known in art as Dadamaino, eclectic protagonist of the after war period, close - from the end of the Fifties - to the Italian Spazialismo group and the gravid experimentation of similar international movements. The exhibition, curated by Alberto Zanchetta, puts the Movimento delle cose cycle into sharp focus, a metaphysical and rarified "macrocosm" where tiny marks gather and disperse in fluctuating and physiological patterns. In her distinctive excursus, starting from an initial uniqueness of the gesture and from a poetical removal, Dadamaino soon moved on to a concept of multiplication and hoarding, which, through ever more innovative solutions and materials, gave life to a rich corpus centred on the subconscious and research into marks. From the first of the Volumi, then the Inconsci Razionali and Alfabeti della mente, to her more recent Movimenti delle cose, the artist's irrepressible ability to perpetuate a refined lightness in all her works shines out.
