EVA HESSE CON INGEMINATE, 1964

L’artista che ha rivoluzionato la scultura mentre il Minimalismo dettava legge, tra le più influenti figure della storia dell’arte contemporanea, in questa foto è ritratta con una sua opera.

ANNEMARIE SAUZEAU BOETTI, critica d’arte, femminista, compagna d’artista.

Lonzi c’entra nel mio percorso di critica (assai irregolare comunque non accademico), nel mio percorso di femminista, infine nella mia esistenza di compagna d’artista. I tre ambiti formano ovviamente un’unica avventura,  non liscia, anzi nodosa, un bel nodo.

 CAROLEE SCHNEEMANN’S art isI not made for your confort, by PIPILOTTI RIST

“Mona Hatoum was chosen in recognition of her pioneering work in performance, installation and sculpture; and in raising our awareness of non-western perspectives,” said Iwona Blazwick, Director, Whitechapel Gallery.

HILMA AF KLINT, Paintings for the Temple

 Hilma af Klint, The Swan, No. 1, Group IX/SUW, 1915

Between 1906 and 1915, Hilma af Klint created her central oeuvre, her Paintings for the Temple, 193 paintings in various series and groups. The overall idea is to convey the knowledge of how all is one, beyond the visible dualistic world. The temple to which the title refers does not necessarily relate to an actual building but can rather be seen as a metaphor for spiritual evolution.

Da série Pintura Habitada (Inhabited Painting), 1975

Through photography, Helena Almeida creates a strong relationship between representation (the act of painting or drawing) and presentation (of her own body as a “medium” of that act) “As if I were continuing to affirm: my painting is my body, my work is my body”.
