Ncontemporary presents SINAPSI, the first major solo exhibition of the young Italian artist Giulia Maiorano (Milan, 1991) in a gallery space. The exhibition will include five series of works, three of which never shown before. It will focus on the genesis of the artistic creation.
In the scientific field, the synapse is a chemical and electrical phenomenon that puts in communication neurons, creating connections and exchanges. This mechanism is found again also in the artistic process. Giulia Maiorano’s research is based on the interaction between work and play, irony and seriousness, the interior and exterior world, the public and private sphere. Art and life are so closely connected and intersected: one sets the other in motion.
The exhibition is completed by a small publication containing some excerpts from a conversation in the gallery between Giulia Maiorano and Patrick Tuttofuoco. The exchange is focused on different aspects that concern the figure of the artist, the genesis of artistic creation, the playfulness, the first solo exhibition and in general the art system.
