Bruna Esposito’s solo show at Artissima 2019
stand 15 – Section Dialogues
Bruna Esposito’s work stands out for the use of miscellaneous materials, often linked with everyday life and alchemy, poetically working on and involving many different levels of perception. Full recognition came in the form of a Golden Lion that she was jointly awarded together with four other female Italian artists for a non-existent national Pavilion entitled “dAPERTutto” curated by Harald Szeemann at the 1999 Venice Biennial. On the occasion of Artissima, we will present two large projects by Esposito: “In teca”, a series of delicate openable wooden cases with onion peels, and “Davvero” consisting in close up photographs of fish eye and an installation of bamboo brooms with a cylindric marble basis. Bruna Esposito won the second edition of the special project The EDIT Dinner Prize on the occasion of Artissima.
