The mirror of Venus - Art Woman 2023




Primo Piano LivinGallery

has the pleasure of presenting the contemporary art exhibition


(The reflection of us and the world between truth and fiction)

curated by Dores Sacquegna

from 25 February to 8 March 2023

THE SHOW - Each of us is led to create their own reality, the external world we live in is a mirror in which the solid form of our image and at the same time our Shadow is reflected. We are called to learn to "see", to develop an internal oblique gaze aimed at understanding emotions, events, processes, connections, to stimulate the evolution of the reality of the world, created in our image and likeness.

We have a daily relationship with the mirror, a very intimate relationship, sometimes obsessive, sometimes detached. But this is not a story of mirrors in art. Rather, it is the story that the mirror would tell if only it knew how to speak, the images of what it sees reflected on its surface, the vanity and malice of the goddesses, the ecstasy of the fragile Narcissus, the confident gaze of the painter or photographer who portrays him. itself, the dilated and duplicated rooms in the places of the imagination.

The exhibition aims to focus its attention on the reflection of us and the world around us, between truth and fiction.  Artists who work with all mediums of expression are welcome. This is the 25th edition of art woman, also open to male artists.
