This exhibition at The Met Bauer considers Richter Gerhard’s six decade long preoccupation with the dual means of representation and abstraction to explore the material, conceptual, and historical implications of painting.
Claudia Cucca (Arezzo, 1991) began her university education at the L.A.B.A. in Florence, graduating in Photography.
The artistic journey of Claudia Cucca, characterized by continuous technical and thematic metamorphoses and hybridizations, begins in 2014, when the artist achieve the “Legàmi” project.
It is this work that anticipate the artist’s predilection for artworks and specifically for techniques such as collage and photo-weaving. The image, in Claudia’s production, becomes a living matter: it gains weight, welcomes shadows and lights, resists cuts, scribes, changes and finds its foundation. The following works at Legamì: Society Wannabe (2016), Memoriae (2017) and Memorialie (2017) are a confirmation but at the same time the result of evolution of the themes related to identity and dynamics that animate relational relationships.
It is in fact the year when the artist leaves Florence to move to Milan (2015) that her research expands and focuses more clearly on topics such as collective memory and the role of the image in contemporary society.
She is currently studying at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan.
