The show

On Wednesday 10 May, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art will inaugurate the Beatrice Pediconi exhibition. Presences curated by Adriana Polveroni.

Beatrice Pediconi is a multimedia artist who reworks traditional languages to explore alternative processes and arrive at unprecedented formal and expressive solutions that are impossible to completely control. The Presenze exhibition proposed in the Gipsoteca of the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art takes shape from a series of drawings on paper made using a technique that uses strips of photographic emulsion taken from previous works.

They are very light, almost evanescent signs which however have a complex origin. In a tub full of water, using brushes or directly with his own hands, Pediconi moves the emulsion which takes on the consistency of a veil of silk and then places it on watercolor paper. Water becomes the medium that allows the transformation of photographic material into a tool for drawing, giving rise to an experimental technique poised between different media.

What we see are the traces of a transformed past, but also the sequence of an intimate story in which the bare memory reveals itself in its fragility, giving space to what remains. With this process, apparently simple but which presupposes sophisticated steps, the artist makes us accomplices in a journey into his memory and into the urgency of a present that wants to decipher the past and give it back to new life.
