The first Cultural Event dedicated to the excellence of Art Crafts in Europe.
1+2=A is a creative game aiming at inspiring people of all ages, to tell a story about which only a scenery is given to start.
The game is made by 15 bifacial boards of different dimensions that the player can join together in various ways and without becoming aware that he/she is creating a small architecture: just by letting his/her creative juices flowing.
The scenery of this graphic suite is a “Chase” where police cars with their sirens wailing are chasing others vehicles, as if they were in a perpetuum story.
In fact, the chase reminds us of a Moebius strip where the characters are modules, traces and spots seen by different points of view.
Serigraphy and illustration seem to have been born one for the other.
The collection of posters TAKE CARE by Lucio Schiavon has found this technique in its maximum expression.
ARTE LAGUNA PRIZE
the winners of the artistic residence
This year the selection of artists has awarded a range of different styles and techniques of expression, focusing on the ones that seem to offer more stimuli and greater potential for experimentation with the screen printing technique.
In this perspective, the selection focused on more exquisitely graphic works such as those by Montaner, but also to "wanderings" aimed at creating a complex artistic confrontation and to "challenge" artists that are not intentionally or consciously vocated to screen printing.
It is not surprising therefore that the strongly photographic work of Van den Ouvendhoven was chosen, together with the materic painting of De Flers. The selection of El Khouri, aka Potato Nose, a Lebanese artist of marked and clear street extraction, is a real challenge, since he will have to translate his art into completely different languages and formats.
