The MAMbo Museum presents ZIMMERFREI, campo | largo. In partnership with UniCredit
The MAMbo Museum (Museum of Modern Art of Bologna) presents, the first exhibition in a museum of the Zimmerfrei group. This exposition is organized inside the cycle Focus on Contemporary Italian Art, realized in partnership with UniCredit.
Founded in 2000 by the artists Massimo Carozzi, Anna de Manincor and Anna Rispoli, the group realizes works using many different artistic techniques like videos, installations, sound works and photographs with which it explores the natural and urban landscape and the contemporary universe made of places and feelings.
Campo | largo is the exhibition organized by MAMbo Museum and it shows some works made for it and a selection of past works that well testify the group activity. Entering the exhibition visitors are welcomed by four monitors that show four time-laps videos from the series Panorama (View). The videos show four cities: Rome, Bologna, Athens and Harburg. In the main space there is the work called Radura (Glade). This work is made if a huge hanging net conceived to capture within its meshes an imaginary landscape. Following are some photographic works.
In all its works Zimmerfrei stimulates the visitors to become aware of the labyrinthine nature of reality, of its contradictions, of the unexplored richness hiding within it. The artists think that today more than ever before it is necessary to look at things from a different prospective not to loose the everyday small epiphanies.
This artistic group it is very well known by UniCredit that, in 2010, bought the installation "Untitle" (2010), which is given to the MACRO Museum as long term loan.
The exhibition will run from May 27 to August 28, 2011.
