Zazzaro Otto
Zazzaro Otto / Traslochi Heimat S.r.l.
Mar 30 – May 18, 2023
ArtNoble Gallery
Milan, Italy

ArtNoble gallery is pleased to present Traslochi Heimat S.r.l., (translated into English as Heimat Moving Ltd) a solo exhibition by Zazzaro Otto accompanied by a text by Bruno Barsanti.

After working for a long time in Berlin, Zazzaro Otto moves to Milan and presents his solo exhibition consisting of a selection of works inspired by the German concept of Heimat. For anyone familiar with the artist’s work, this exhibition will come as a surprise: his aesthetics, provocative and impactful, remain the same, however the subject matter is somewhat different.

Heimat is a word that cannot be directly translated into other languages, indicating the dimension of belonging to a place, thus identifying it as “a place where the language of affection is spoken”, transporting the public back into an intimate and familiar dimension.

The juxtaposition of this word with the concept of moving represents an obvious antithesis: it is precisely within Traslochi Heimat S.r.l. that Zazzaro Otto invites us to find an opportunity to reflect on the idea of belonging to a place and to one’s own culture, but also on the transformation and rediscovery of oneself through constant movement.

This exhibition is part of the Contemporary Spirits project dedicated to galleries that support the work of research-based contemporary artists, implemented by Zero with the collaboration and support of ITALICUS Rosolio di Bergamotto.

  • 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. All of the photographs in FREIHEIT were taken by Weldé on disposable cameras between 2011-2015. They show a tender side to the artist and his friend circle, and the purest form of trust. (more…)

  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis
    Witty Books

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
