Megan Stancanelli, Sotto ogni pelle, Video still
Megan Stancanelli: Sotto Ogni Pelle
Jun 28 – Jul 1, 2023
Turin, Italy

Sotto Ogni Pelle is the first exhibition by Megan Stancanelli, a young Genoese director that Recontemporary is happy to present as a new proposal for contemporary art.

Already in 2022, with the exhibition of the artist Gianluca Iadema, Recontemporary began a project to discover new talents, with the desire to establish itself as a research space in the language of video.

The exhibition, which ends on July 1, tells the introspective journey of the human being in his continuous escape from pain, without learning how it is an integral part of the person’s emotional prospect. The artist’s research translates into the creation of short films that show people’s “mental rooms”, studying how one is, since childhood, polluted by external agents that change the objectivity of the world into subjectivity.

“Where unawareness is the worst poison, where we feel guilty and weak even if only in crying, in suffering, we want to bring pain and fear back to where they belong: inside man.” – Megan Stancanelli

  • Patrick Weldé: Freiheit
    Goswell Road

    On the occasion of our exhibition with Weldé at CFAlive Milan L’AMOUR TOUJOURS, we publish a new edition of the previously sold-out book that we produced with Weldé in 2017, FREIHEIT.

  • Maggie Lee: Magazine
    Feb 10 – May 20, 2024
    Kunsthalle Zürich
    Zürich, Switzerland

    The exhibition Magazine was born out of the artist’s long-held desire to publish her own magazine – a very personal magazine that would nonetheless circulate further than just her own circle of friends. Maggie Lee’s passion for this medium of distribution was inspired by her work in copy stores, and above all by creating zines since her teenage years in New Jersey. There is a special appeal to the creative self-realisation in self-publishing (more…)

  • Patrick Pound: Windows

    In Windows, Pound’s first photobook with Perimeter Editions, we find a cross-section of images lifted from a single category in Pound’s vast collection of 70,000 photographs. Each of the ‘found’ photographs in this new book features a window seen from the outside. We are allowed to look through them, from the privacy of our own homes. We see ghostly figures and happy families; we see actors acting, and everyday folks acting up; we see real and imagined worlds. (more…)
