Sarah Entwistle at Museo Nivola: “You should remember to do those things done before that have to be done again”, curated by Alfredo Cramerotti

Posted in nEws and rEleases by alcramer on November 2, 2020
Museo Nivola is pleased to present the first institutional solo exhibition in Italy of Sarah Entwistle, comprising of an entirely new body of work that includes tapestries, objects and 2D works. 

The exhibition, You should remember to do those things done before that have to be done again, curated by Alfredo Cramerotti, borrows its title from a love letter written in the mid 1960’s by Sarah Entwistle’s grandfather and fellow architect, Clive Entwistle (1916-1976), a contemporary of Costantino Nivola. 

For the artist, a daily ‘remembering’ has been the practice of calibrating time and place through the collection of discarded objects and material fragments. In recent years this ritual has started to glitch into the historicity of her grandfather’s archive around which her work orientates. Approaching its contents as mutable allows the artist to continually revise and reconstruct new narrative lines. Objects are exchanged into it, and pieces extracted out. In this often-confronting process of merging biographies Entwistle feels a continual tussle for proprietorship as the boundary of a lived history being ruptured. 

For this exhibition at Museo Nivola, the artist creates a large-scale sculptural arrangement of objects that record the movement of a year, and her first visit to Orani. Presenting an aggregation of objects that have formal associations with a ‘historical-present’, she draws arcs and tangents between the works of Nivola, the artist’s grandfather (both European emigrants to New York) and her own life and practice.

Many of the elements displayed where gathered on her first over-land travel to Orani from her home in Berlin. Further pieces have been accumulated in the year since from London, Berlin, Morocco, Athens and Sicily. Found and hand-made elements that collectively create an archeology of shapes, materials, tones and textures.  Arranged in the gallery, three monolithic stone and marble plinths display these constellations of artefacts, positioned to form resonant arcs and axis. Stacked around the gallery periphery, large compressed blocks of raw wool in various dyed hues can be laid on by visitors; from there, a series of suspended paper hangings can be viewed. The collaged hangings use differing textures, opacities, paper weights and sizes to create an abstract tonal enclosure of sepia and blues.

A series of three hand-woven panels produced by local Sarule weavers; Lucia Todde, Rosaria Ladu, Pasquala Piredda are allocated to each table arrangement. The weavings are a further illustration of the artist’s continued fascination with the process of translation and interpretation from the drawn medium to a handmade physical object, where slippages in form, scale and colour occur. The intention with this collaborative production is for the composition and outcome to be determined and translated through the eye and expertise of the weavers, and in this less deterministic process new views emerge. Through this body of work Entwistle is searching for a line of sight that synchronizes personal histories, geographical regions and shared material practices. 

Sarah Entwistle originally trained as an architect at The Bartlett, UCL and Architectural Association, London. She is the 2014 recipient of the Le Corbusier Foundation Grant for Visual Artists and in 2015 presented a solo exhibition at the Le Corbusier Foundation in Paris.  The exhibition coincided with the publication of her experimental biography, Please send this book to my mother, Sternberg Press, 2015.  She was the recipient of the Graham foundation for the advanced studies in fine art, Chicago, 2014; the Artists’ International Development Fund, Arts Council England, 2017; and Main Prize winner for the Mostyn Open 21, MOSTYN. 

Museo Nivola in Orani (Nuoro), located in the middle of a park in the heart of Sardinia, is devoted to the work of Costantino Nivola (Orani, 1911–East Hampton, 1988), an important figure in the international movement for the “synthesis of the arts” (the integration of the visual arts and architecture) who also played a key role in the cultural exchange between Italy and the United States in the second half of the 20th century. The museum has a permanent collection comprising more than 200 sculptures, paintings, and drawings by Nivola and organizes temporary exhibitions focused primarily on the relationship between art, architecture, and landscape.www.museonivola.it

Elisabetta Benassi: EMPIRE

13 July – 27 October 2019

 

Elisabetta Benassi, Empire, 2018

 

Elisabetta Benassi‘s EMPIRE is an installation of terracotta bricks, hand-crafted in the UK from clay ranging in colour from red to black. The bricks are configured as a site-specific installation – the size, shape and appearance of each installation determined by its relationship to the setting; self-supporting structures assembled without mortar and in an intrinsically stable conformation. The work addresses the crux of the relationship between ancient spaces, archaeological heritage and the contemporary museum.

EMPIRE takes the basic building unit, the Roman brick, and transforms it with new symbolic and aesthetic meaning.

The work is exhibited for the first time in the UK at MOSTYN and at the Italian Institute of Culture before travelling to various venues in Rome.

Ann Bridges

The Welcome

8 June – 29 September 2019
Ann Bridges - The Welcome

 

Inspired by her travels to India, Vietnam, Singapore and Thailand, Ann Bridges fills her sketchbooks with colourful observational drawings of textiles, food, flowers, animals, objects and moments in time. These visual diaries are then developed into beautiful print-based images.

Each piece is unique, usually produced in a small series combining an eye for detail with an imaginative interpretation. Using monoprint techniques, oil based printmaking inks are applied to the picture surface using small rollers and hand cut stencils to define areas of the composition.

Prints are for sale framed or unframed, and the Collectorplan scheme allows you to spread the cost of your purchases over 12 months interest free.
