The solo exhibition Ritrovamenti Atemporali by artist Gian-Martino Cecere will open at re|space gallery on the 2nd of July 2021. The exhibition will show a selection of Cecere’s works on canvas and paper. As Cecere’s first exhibition in Germany, the exhibition Ritrovamenti Atemporali offers an insight into the current work of the Italian-German artist. The Benelli-Prize winner and graduate of the Academia di Belle Arti in Urbino, sets himself apart through his unique working method and the complex development of his themes.

 

The Exhibition

 

The exhibition Ritrovamenti Atemporali opens on July 2nd, 2021 with an opening at which the artist will be present. The exhibition will show Gian-Martino Cecere’s large-scale mixed media works on canvas and a selection of works on paper. Cecere treats the canvas as an archaeological site. The artist’s interest in past civilizations, ancient culture, and archetypes is reflected in the forms that populate his works. Much like an archaeologist carefully scratching the surface of an excavation to uncover an artifact, Cecere conscientiously and patiently works on his canvas until meaningful forms and compositions reveal themselves.

 

The Artist

 

Born 1990 in Waldshut-Tiengen, artist Gian-Martino Cecere completed his undergraduate degree in fine art painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Urbino in 2015. Since then he has been living and working in Berlin and has been in contract with re|space gallery since 2021. Cecere works primarily in painting and drawing, but in 2013 he won the Benelli Art Prize for a large-scale sculpture of a slingshot called “Il Corragio” (“The Courage”).
