We are a young boutique art gallery, focused on promoting mid-career's artists that stand out not only due to their talent, but also because of their career path.
New technologies forge new conditions of subjectivity about space and time. Keeping up with the times means living and recreating those transformations through art.
Sergio Castiglione's series, segMOments, explores a new concept of photography where space builds itself in the finite life of light. From Monet to 2001 Space Odyssey feature film time as a perception has been a major variable of life in culture, a means to think the real.
In the works of Castiglione the metropolis is the place where the Homo Architectus creates a new time device. Tadao Ando, Le Corbusier, Sanaa, Toyo Ito are a few of the philosophers/architects who restate time in their projects.
Journeys – no matter whether real or virtual – set up a new pervasiveness. The increasing speed of reality, as a mental and virtual materiality, puts us in a multiple, bivalent, multi-positional and cyber-visual perception.
The panoramic photographs of some of the most significant cities around the world reveal the view of the artist/architect, who as a modern Marco Polo, captures the morphological beauty of an architecture that merges with light as a marker of time.
Great iconic cities in the itinerary of the avant garde traveler make it possible for time to be subdivided and multiplied and by the gesture of the artist day and night can be reunited in a single shot.
Tacita Dean, Michael Wesely, Wim Wenders, Italo Calvino, Marc Augé, Henry Bergson, different artists, film makers and thinkers have philosophically connected time to a city.
From this theoretical perspective, even the names given to each piece reveal the conceptual process behind the shot. The place, the moment and the welcome point to the city - in other words, the airports – those micro cities that act as the starting point for the trip.
Rio de Janeiro, New York, London, Miami, Paris, Dubai, Milan, Venice, Buenos Aires, San Francisco, Los Angeles are a few of Verne´s stops around the world in eighty hours.
The poetics of space as light is present and by virtue of the artist we travel around the world, get to live the future – in fact, it is already today – through these images and we become space travelers watching the sun rise in every city, every day.
