Jermay Michael Gabriel, Berhè Golon, 2020
Stratificazioni
Jun 15 – Jul 26, 2023
ArtNoble Gallery
Milan, Italy

ArtNoble Gallery is pleased to present Stratificazioni, a group exhibition that brings together the work of five international artists: Jermay Michael Gabriel, Délio Jasse, Muna Mussie, Jim C. Nedd and Georges Senga, accompanied by a critical text by Janine Gaëlle Dieudji.

All of them, through their artistic practice, bring to this group show the fragment of a story: a tale that has become research, that has become testimony to the world they have experienced. The multiplicity of reading levels that characterizes each work will be the connecting thread between the works: the exhibition pushes one to go beyond the aesthetic level and look further.

The word ‘stratifications’ on the one hand implies the presence of multiple levels, and on the other suggests a common sense. Stratificazioni is a title that wants on the one side to enhance the strong uniqueness that characterizes each artistic research, and on the other to suggest a meeting point between the five artists: the work of research, study of traditions and history, archival work, collection of testimonies, sometimes of denunciation, forms the basis for the realization of each work, pushing the viewer not to stop at the first glance, but to understand a world behind, hidden only in appearance.

  • Atiéna R. Kilfa: Special Effect
    May 4 – Sep 8, 2024
    Den Frie
    Copenhagen, Denmark

    With Special Effect, Atiéna R. Kilfa presents a new body of works consisting of a short film and two large scale pencil drawings. In continuation of Kilfa’s investigation and restructuring of cinematic archetypes, Special Effect homes in on the nondescript figure of a man sitting at a desk. Shot in black and white, the film eerily evokes a timelessness of the figure by bringing it in resonance with pictorial genres reminiscent of various eras from German Expressionist cinema to the golden age of Hollywood film noir, fast forward to its 4K quality of today.

  • Silke Schönfeld: No More Butter Scenes
    Jun 27–30, 2024
    Kunsthalle Münster
    Münster, Germany

    The video installation No More Butter Scenes (2024) examines the relationship between consent and intimacy in the context of the acting profession. In 2007, around 35 years after the premiere of Tango in Paris (1972), actress Maria Schneider spoke for the first time about the sexual abuse she experienced during the shooting of the infamous butter scene. Director Bernardo Bertolucci argued that it was only by not informing his leading actress in advance of how the scene with co-star Marlon Brando would take place that he was able to capture her authentic frustration and anger.

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
