Stéphanie Nava: Lutte permanente du fond avec la surface
Umbria, Milan, 06/01/2017 - 07/21/2017
Riccardo Crespi gallery presents Lutte permanente du fond avec la surface (The constant struggle between the bottom and the surface), a solo exhibition by the French artist Stéphanie Nava.
The artist is presenting a new set of images – a collection of places she has drawn and photographed, be they landscapes or buildings, spaces in the home or the city – that, although with different concerns, are united by the question that has faced any representation since the origins of art: how to work with plane and space, how to get the depth of the image to coexist with the surface of the sheet?
The exhibition includes the series Un derrière un autre, et continuellement (One after the Other, and Continually) inspired by the famous Vietnamese travel destination Ha Long Bay, in which, in the artist’s words, ‘space has no hierarchies’ and ‘depth has no bottom and no centre’, executed in carbon ink on paper.
