DAVID ADAMO La poesia, l’enigma, l’assurdo: N.O.GALLERY fino al 30 ottobre 2009


La poesia, l'enigma, l'assurdo: questo è il paradigma della riflessione e dell'opera di David Adamo.

DAVID ADAMO La poesia, l'enigma, l'assurdo: N.O.GALLERY fino al 30 ottobre 2009

Partendo da oggetti differenti David Adamo crea sculture, installazioni e performance che contrastano la razionalità e si calano nel paradosso e nella contraddizione attraverso simboli.
Utensili pericolosi sono resi fragili e innocui grazie ad un'attenta manipolazione. Con gesti cari alla pratica scultorea David Adamo origina installazioni con equilibri precari, svuotando gli oggetti della loro materialità.
 
Gli oggetti scelti sono spesso  privati del loro uso originario e diventano proposte di forme inedite.
Nelle perfomance predomina l'assurdo  dove gran parte dell'interpretazione è lasciata allo spettatore.

L'opera di Adamo si compone di apparente casualità che origina forme e figure ricolme di carica simbolica e metaforica.

PRESS RELEASE

 
 
DAVID ADAMO
September 18th  - October 30th, 2009
 
 
N.O. Gallery is pleased to present the first Italian solo show of David Adamo.


OPENING ON FRIDAY THE 18TH OF SEPTEMBER 2009 FROM 6.30 P.M. TO 10.00 P.M.

During the art week end, organized by STARTMilano, on September 18th, 19th and 20th, the gallery will be opened on Saturday from 12.00 am to 9.00 pm and on Sunday from 12.00 a.m. till 7.00 pm.
The exhibition will be on view from Monday to Friday from 3.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m.. Saturday and mornings by appointments. Sunday closed.
 
 
The exhibition is conceived as a single installation and it is based on a large scale piece: a suspended concert harp anchored on stage. A minimal arrangement is scored to indicate where cultural and historical references come together revealing a disorientating and self-consciously poetic as a multi-layered environment.
 
David Adamo's work is characterized by performance and research trips, incidents that  are the starting point for a sequence of installations and projects in which Adamo aims to dissect and reprocess both gathered data and the memories of his experiences. Never satisfied to allow boundaries to be defined for him, Adamo navigates limits of normal behavior and circumstance, and doing so he redefines where those borders lie.
 
 
Adamo's work is a combination of formed and found materials, with apparently no connection, suggesting the idea of a remnant of some prior activity or event that is left for the viewer to decode.
 
A feature of Adamo's work is to present a reality of something having happened, and a play with time, where objects are the only proof.
