TALK 11 Maggio

 

Incastri / Joints

 

Talk di approfondimento con l’artista Francesco Del Conte, in dialogo con Jean Negri, falegname e restauratore.

 

L’incontro prevede l’approfondimento del lavoro in mostra Joining e il racconto relativo ai sette mesi di residenza trascorsi dall’artista presso il Centro d’Arte Contemporanea CCA Kitakyushu in Giappone. Del Conte svela la parte del progetto nascosta e i video realizzati nell’arcipelago nipponico durante le fasi di realizzazione degli incastri lignei che sono alla base della sua ricerca, presso il laboratorio del carpentiere Toshiro Kobayashi. Il falegname e restauratore Jean Negri  (1961, Mannheim) partecipa alla discussione, parlando della sua esperienza con questa tecnica e delle differenze tra tecnologie occidentali e orientali.

Fräsen - translated from German “milling” - is a photographic project initiated in Leipzig in 2014 by Francesco Del Conte. The subjects of the photographs are small mechanical tools that engrave and shape materials such as metal, plastic and wood. The work focuses on industrial objects that apparently lack in aesthetic value: they are decontextualized by the photographic lens and removed by their functional context.

The resulting images create a paradox by investigating the shape of objects originally designed to shape other materials. In this project, the camera offers its analytical qualities by displaying black and white images in which the tools are isolated on a plain background.
