The new season by PUNTO SULL’ARTE will start with an intense exhibition. On SATURDAY 24th SEPTEMBER, from 6 to 9 pm, the double solo exhibition DAIMON will open, with the artists CLAUDIA GIRAUDO and MATTHIAS VERGINER as main protagonists. The topic is focused upon destiny, represented through the encounter between the person and its own daimon, the animal symbolizing our soul guide. Here is CLAUDIA GIRAUDO, with her deep and timeless oil paintings, wherein graceful figures embodying youth meet butterflies, hares, chameleons, emerald toads and mallards, silently dialoguing with them about the future. Here is MATTHIAS VERGINER: within his limewood sculptures, the meeting between man and his daimon is coloured with pop hues and translated into laid-back tones, thus turning the beautiful, chubby and athletic, girl into a tamer of wild beasts and giant insects or into a warrior standing on the back of a whale. The exhibition will close with the live performance “Paràdeigma” by GIOVANNA LACEDRA. Painter and illustrator, but mainly performer, the artist will exhibit on Saturday 22nd October, and is going to enchant and involve the audience through an action dedicated to our most genuine destiny, our deepest vocations and the cages which often suffocate them.
