„Stillleben“ by Agostino Iacurci - BC Gallery - Berlin

BC Gallery is pleased to announce the solo exhibition „Stillleben“ with new works by Berlin based Agostino Iacurci. We would like to invite you to the opening on Saturday, the 18th of May, from 18 - 22 h at BC Gallery, Libauerstraße 14, 10245 Berlin. The exhibition is open for public viewing through June 29th.ABOUT THE EXHIBITIONAgostino Iacurci will present a new body of paintings and works on paper inspired by his daily walks across the streets of the residential neighborhoods of Berlin Charlottenburg and the observation of its shops and houses windows, where tropical plants are carefully lined up together with products, random objects and memorabilia from the owners. His images don’t refer to any place in particular, since he is more interested in the way objects are arranged and organized and how the plants stand behind the glass and shape up within the frame of the windows, chasing the little sun or the artificial lighting of the room. Alongside the paintings, he will present a new, tailor-made version of his iconic wooden plant that connects the two levels of the gallery space. Iacurci’s work is defined by clear and simple compositions and flat shapes. Colors like blue, white, black, and terracotta carry like a thread to the entire work. Despite the clarity of the elements and synthesis of forms, he generates dream-like images that evoke mystery and originate their own narrative.ABOUT THE ARTISTAgostino Iacurci (Foggia, 1986) is an Italian-born, Berlin-based artist. His practice embraces a wide range of media including painting, mural, sculpture, drawing, and installation. Iacurci’s works are defined by clear compositions and bright colours, blurring the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Primarily interested in everyday objects, his clean language conveys multiple layers of interpretation. Iacurci combines his artworks with scenographic spaces, to overcome the limits of painting and thus transform the perception of a given environment. His work has been shown in many exhibitions, festivals and projects in Europe, USA, Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Australia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan. Recent exhibitions include: Urban Art Biennale 2017, Völkinger Hütte, European Centre for Art and Industrial Culture, Germany; Cross the streets, Museo Macro Roma, 2017; FADA, House of Madness, The Watermill Center, New York, 2016; 16° Premio Cairo, Palazzo della Permanente, Milano, 2016; Codici sorgenti, Palazzo Platamone, Catania, 2015; From Street to Art, Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY, 2014; Artmosphere, Urban Art Biennale, Artplay, Moscow.http://bcgallery.de/stillleben-by-agostiono-iacurci/http://www.agostinoiacurci.com/
