EVENT

Strata, personal exhibition by Sérgio Costa opens in Lisbon


Dates:
Thu May 15, 2014 19:00 - Wed Jun 04, 2014

Location:
Lisbon, Portugal

SÉRGIO COSTA | Strata
Opening: May 15 at 7pm
On view through June 4, 2014


Carlos Carvalho Arte Contemporânea presents Strata, a solo show by Sérgio Costa, following the 8th edition of the Arte Laguna Prize.
The exhibition stems from the collaboration between Arte Laguna Prize and Carlos Carvalho Gallery, which selected Sérgio Costa as the winner of the special prize "Artist in Gallery".

With the 8th edition Arte Laguna Prize inaugurates Artist in Gallery: 4 prestigious international galleries have the opportunity to view a wide variety of artworks selected by a jury composed of ten experts of contemporary art. The first of the 4 exhibitions in the program is the one with Carlos Carvalho Arte Contemporânea in Lisbon, enriched by a catalog published by Musaeum.

"Strata" is a term used to describe the composition and properties of subsoil matter, by considering elements such as color and texture, which is similar to the analysis of the artwork. This relationship of this series of works with stratigraphy aims to show how art is a means of mapping knowledge about the world: artworks are cultural traces condensed in layers that allow us to learn about the past.

#ARTELAGUNAPRIZE | THE WINNERS OF THE 8TH EDITION


Deadline:
Sun Apr 06, 2014 18:00

Venice – With the proclamation of the five overall winners, the 8th edition of Arte Laguna Prize reached its conclusion and its climax.

The international jury,chaired by Igor Zanti, selected the 5 winners among the 110 shortlisted finalists, one for each section of the Prize – Painting, Sculpture, Photography, Video art and Performance, Virtual Art – who were awarded a cash prize of 7,000 Euros each.

PAINTING SECTION
Winner: Bianca de Gier (Gouda, The Netherlands) Work: The Four Seasons (nr. 56)
Motivation: The work is based at the same time on the research and the practice of painting, by unveiling the reflection, the intimate reaction of global communications and of the contemporary information flow and by investigating the thin connection between individual and collective memory.

SCULPTURE SECTION
Winner: Elaine Byrne (Dublin, Ireland) Work: Raum
Motivation: The jury selected this work since it combines modernist architectural references with a personal approach, with the memories of lived experiences. The work also tears down the boundaries between language and nationality, by deconstructing the physical and emotional walls we build around us. This work is a powerful metaphor of the relationship between the individual and society in our times.

PHOTOGRAPHY SECTION
Winner: Victoria Campillo (Barcelona, Spain) Work: Gardens
Motivation: The work was awarded for the originality of the subject, the ability to translate pre-existing structures of daily use into images, turning them into a conceptual work, with an ironic approach to the history of contemporary art.

VIDEO ART AND PERFORMANCE SECTION
Winner: Apiyo Amolo (Kenya) Work: Not Swiss Made
Motivation: For the contents addressing the issue of identity in a profoundly contemporary manner, combining the refined technical and compositional research with a highly topical approach.

VIRTUAL ART SECTION
Winners: Émilie Brout & Maxime Marion (Nancy, France - Forbach, France) Work: Dérives
Motivation: The work subverts and revitalizes both the history of cinema and the tradition of found footage videos, offers a powerful visual metaphor of the liquid nature of the digital medium, and of the daily experience of surfing an infinite hypertext.

The exhibition was open to the public in the venues of the Arsenale, the Telecom Italia Future Centre and the Romanian Institute in Venice through April 6, 2014.
