The show

From 28 September 2022 the Arnaldo Pomodoro Foundation presents Rendezvous by Vibeke Mascini , the second appointment of the annual exhibition cycle of Project Room, the Foundation's "observatory" project, dedicated to the most recent developments in the international art scene, entrusted for 2022 to the curators Chiara Pirozzi and Alessandra Troncone.

In Rendezvous , an unpublished project that Vibeke Mascini (The Hague, 1989) conceived for the spaces of the Foundation, the Dutch artist puts his research into dialogue with the suggestions coming from the deepening of the artistic practice of Arnaldo Pomodoro and the preserved documents in his archive.

Interested in the possibilities of transformation of matter through the alternative and self-generating use of electricity - understood as a natural property or as the result of industrial processes - Mascini creates complex multimedia installations, often in collaboration with scholars from other disciplines, playing on the balance of concepts mirror like life-death, positive-negative, action-stasis. From these interests arises the curiosity of the artist for the use that Arnaldo Pomodoro makes of the cuttlefish bone as a support to be engraved for the creation of jewels and small sculptures, in which the negative trace of the object created remains imprinted.

Rendezvous reflects on the concept of imprint, understood by Mascini as a physical sign of a dynamic time that crystallizes. Expanding his research to the field of natural sciences, the artist has activated a close collaboration with the MUSE - Museum of Sciences of Trento, which has created for the project an unprecedented series of 3D scans of portions of dinosaur footprints from the paleontological site of the Lavini. di Marco (Rovereto), in which the crossing between different animal species that lived hundreds of years apart from each other is evident.
