closed Sophie Ko. Geografie Temporali

Curated by: Elisabetta Barisoni

The show

The meeting between the Civic Museums Foundation and in particular the Ca 'Pesaro Modern Art Gallery with Sophie Ko, a Georgian artist born in Tbilisi in 1981 and resident in Milan, took place at Art Verona, in 2018, for the sixth edition of Level 0. Since 2013 an important network of Museums, currently 13 of the most important in Italy for contemporary art, participate in this initiative that favors the encounter between galleries, artists and directors of Italian art museums : every year each museum chooses an artist and inserts it in the programming to come, creating his own project.

The choice of Sophie Ko was dictated by the particular relationship of this young artist with matter and time. Her works, her Temporal Geographies, are made of compressed and changeable matter, which composes stratifications, moves, moves, accidentally or following perspective cuts or simply gravity. The powders have different colors and origins, pigments and ashes and natural artifacts, composed in the works of Sophie Ko that restore a time that remains suspended between the flow of the past and the irruption of the present.

The artist defined his relationship with the Museum of Ca' Pesaro by building her Temporal Geography in dialogue with one of the most famous works of the Gallery of Modern Art: Auguste Rodin's Thinker. Foundational work of the Museum, like the equally monumental The bourgeois of Calais, both linked to the presence of Rodin at the Biennale International Art Exhibition of 1901 and 1907. The Thinker is thus joined by a work that recalls its eternity. To the timeless man the artist looks to compose pigment and ash in a form that recalls his imploding force, between memory of the past, concern of the present and anxiety of the future.
