Eco-Art News: Entre glace et neige exhibit in Italy

 

lake Concordia by Chris Drury

Land artist Chris Drury is one of more than 30 international artists included in the exhibition, Entre glace et neige. Nature’s processes and energies, which opens at the Centro Saint-Bénin in Aosta, Italy on May 15th and runs through October 26, 2010.  The exhibition, curated by Laura Cherubini and Glorianda Cipolla, investigates the relation between art and nature, focusing on elements such as ice and snow, icons of the natural transformations of matter. Valle d’Aosta, the exhibitions locale, offers an exemplary perspective on the dialectical shifts between water, ice and snow – in their aesthetical, scientific and ecological aspects.

 

 

 

Using different techniques and expressive strategies – from painting to photography, from film to sculpture and installation – the artists in Entre elace et neige have dealt with natural phenomena representing the solid states of water. Work by established artists such as Anish Kapoor, Mario Merz, Salvatore Scarpitta, Hamish Fulton, Lawrence Carroll and Salvo will be present alongside work by younger artists such as  Elisa Sighicelli, Massimo Bartolini, Hans Op de Beeck, Christian Frosi, Lucy+Jorge Orta and Loris Cecchini to investigate the way art reflects on natural energy, in its dual aspect of a dangerous, and currently endangered, universe. In the exhibit, Jana Sterbak’s Dissolution creates impractical ice chairs, while her videoFévrier depicts a Montreal ice-skating rink with clear Brueghel quotations. Anish Kapoor celebrates sun and moon with a white marble mountain. Walter Niedermayr portrays the huge emptiness of mountains, punctuated by tiny figures. Chris Drury captures the life of an iceberg and offers the equivalent of a glacier’s electrocardiogram.

 
Drury’s work, Basket for the Crows, is included in Eco-Art: Materials Recycled, Repurposed, Re-Envisioned, at Artifact Design Group in Wilton, Connecticut through May 31, 2010. He is a Curator’s Choice artist in The Green Museum.
