Michael Bevilacqua (1966, USA), known for fusing high and low culture, in these new works is interested in the world of computers videogames, mingling imagery also from ritualistic African masks with his memories of early Atari games or recalling something of a Matrix like world.
Paolo Cavinato’s (1975 Italy) works begins with space, necessarily includes time, and aims to reach the so-called fifth dimension, that of the spirit and infinity.
The space contained is a mental space, while the objects that compose it are abstractions of real artifacts. Nothing is as it appears, everything is constantly questioned, set in limbo.
Leonardo Ulian (1974 Italy, lives in London) uses patterns, microchips and circuits of electronic devices to weave a web of connections that resemble Tibetan mandalas or precious fractal forms. Mathematics, science and spirituality thus form the basis of his research.
The mandala is a spiritual symbol drawing in sand and destroyed after its created. This practice establishes a sacred space, which is Ulian’s technological web can be a metaphor for.
