The first solo exhibition of the Sicilian-Milanese artist g. olmo stuppia brings the artist to deal with Venice, his city of adoption, with admiration and astonishment as well. The artist plays with lights and shadows to build an “atmosferology” (as mentioned by Martin Heidegger and Tonino Griffero): in the semi-obscure exhibition space, he presents three high-resolution videos, twelve sculptures, some smells and three silver candelabra fused into sculptures.
The exhibition is accompanied by two voices, representative of Venice, telling unconventional stories about the city: the one of Giustiniano Brunato, water taxi-driver, and of the painter Armando Bozzola. The first had the chance to carry in his boat Togliatti, Kruscev, Richard Nixon, Roman Polanski, when they were in Venice. The second worked as a painter for many years and now lives in his home-studio, always carrying in his pockets two letters, one signed by Paul Newman, the other by Frank Sinatra, who bought his works a long time ago.
