The first exhibition in Italy by Irish artist Mark Cullen at Villa Cross

Irish artist Mark Cullen inaugurated his first exhibition in Italy this afternoon at the Villa Cross Towers super-connection.

In addition to the dwarf, Barbara Grosso, Cultural Councilor of the Municipality of Genoa, was in attendance.

Curated by Valeria Serijini and sponsored by the Irish Embassy and Culture Ireland, the exhibition will run until March 13 at the Sala Camino Museum of Contemporary Art in Villa Cross.

It is a modular installation consisting of rods made of bamboo, aluminum, PVC and plastic. The poles are geometric intersections derived from Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic design ideas.

In Mark Cullen’s research, the search for places that represent the natural elements at the bottom of the universe and the creation of forms are repeated. The concept of super-connection is derived from a concept of quantum theory that relates the quantum state of a particle to all other particles in that particular system.

The artist subjected the objects to a protective process: each element was carefully laminated by hand, as in the case of satellite components covered with gold or aluminum film to protect them from cosmic radiation. This work of the artist represents a subtle “meditative process” and a gesture to preserve a natural object such as bamboo, the essence of which is fully preserved.

On display you can appreciate not only the site-specific installation, but also the drawings and lightbox on paper.

“The Villa Cross has established itself as a major center for artistic experimentation, capable of creating cultural fervor and attracting international collaborations – underlined by Barbara Grosso, Councilor for Culture.” Another testament to the trend, in which the municipal government is investing heavily in planning, is the fact that after the beautiful exhibition of Gaitano Pesci opens a series of events – from Gianto Physi to Giorgio Muിനുin and Giacomo Costa – it will be a real loss.
