20+20=Quarantine - Our Artists in the Year of the Pandemic
On show, the works of four artists who are part of the Artrust team: Andrea Ravo Mattoni, Aymone Poletti and Raul, who with the Melano gallery have exhibited in group and solo shows and attended numerous national and international fairs, with the addition of Sirinat Kasikam, who as well as being an emerging young artist has also been an integral part of the Artrust team for over four years.
«This is a new beginning for us, in many ways - says Patrizia Cattaneo Moresi, Director of Artrust - We are thrilled to be able to start again and it is no coincidence that we have chosen to do so with the artists with whom we have worked in the past. It is a restart that, as the title of the exhibition suggests, does not want to forget everything that has happened and the difficult times we have lived through and that we are still living through in part. On the contrary, it places them at the centre of the artistic and curatorial discourse, with the desire to investigate how art found itself facing this exceptional situation and what answers it found to communicate it, understand it and why not, exorcise it».
The works on show, in fact, were for the most part created by the four artists during the months of forced quarantine and lockdown. From the great classics spray-painted by Ravo, to the elegant engravings by Aymone Poletti, from Raul's instinctive signs to Sirinat Kasikam's meditative compositions, we can see in the works of these artists the signs of the sudden and forced change that 2020 has forced us all to reckon with.
