SAVE THE DATE!
We are glad to announce our new forthcoming solo exhibition at Istituto Svizzero in Milan in September.
Artist Marta Riniker-Radich (b. 1982, Bern) will show her new works in the show titled ‘Patience Will Reward Those Who Lie in Wait’.

Known for her small-scale pencil drawings, the artist presents new series of drawings that address the subject of social and psychological pressure in relation to work conditions. Through a surreal imaginary, Marta Riniker-Radich explores how vulnerability, insecurities and fears are connected to today’s working world and high-performance society.

On view: 16.09.2021-30.10.2021
Opening: 15.09.2021

Istituto Svizzero
Via Del Vecchio Politecnico 3, Milan
_____________________________

Marta Riniker-Radich (born 1982 in Bern, lives and works in Frankfurt am Main) has developed a drawing practice that makes use of very simple means yet is intensified by her use of color and layering techniques.
Created in series and made almost exclusively in A4 format with colored pencils, her drawings function as slices of an abstracted reality and interact with works in other media, such as text, objects and site-specific installations, to create larger narratives.

Her projects often stem from specific historical occurrences and situations, such as the California electricity crisis of the late 1990s or the petroleum industry in Texas. These research themes are translated into a network of symbols and fictionalized narratives that highlight the impact of socio-political and economic realities on the development of human behavior. Power structures, both corporate and individual, cronyism, insecurity and regression to childhood are among the themes that emerge in her work.

Marta Riniker-Radich studied at the HEAD in Geneva and has participated in numerous artist residencies (Fieldwork Marfa, Studio Roma/Istituto Svizzero, Landis & Gyr Stiftung in London, among others). Her work has been exhibited internationally and she was the recipient of the Swiss Art Award (2010) and of the Manor Kunstpreis (2016). Recent solo exhibitions include the Swiss Institute, New York, Kunsthaus Glarus, and Eclair, Berlin.

We are so proud about the participation of former Fellow Hayahisa Tomiyasu at the 3rd edition of Images Gibellina, the open air photography and visual arts festival in the Sicilian town of Gibellina, which will take place from 30 July to 29 August.

Hayahisa will be present with ‘10“ Rome/10“ Zurich’, a new video that combines two works produced in two different locations: Zurich and Rome. A double screen shows photos of numbers taken by the artist in public spaces of the two cities. The numbers go from 10 to 1 as to remind a countdown.

«Hayahisa Tomiyasu is a shrewd observer of urban space. He practices photography by tracking down the ‘character’ or, in his words, the ‘grey zones’ of cities. With his camera he captures things or situations that catch his eye and the meaning of which is not immediately clear to him: clocks showing the wrong (and, rarely, the correct) time in urban areas, leaning or fallen poles that once held up traffic signs, or the parrots living in Rome, having emigrated there long ago from West Africa and Southern India. To Hayahisa Tomiyasu, tracking down situations such as this could be likened to an exercise that guides his gaze and movements in urban space […]»

Spotted in the centre of #Rome one of the posters by artist and former resident at Istituto Svizzero #NastasiaMeyrat!

Also this year we are glad to take part to the project ‘Viaggi nei paraggi’, a project conceived and curated by #OpenCityRoma, also in collaboration with the #AcademyofDenmark and the #ArchivioStoricoIstitutoLuce.

The posters for the 2021 edition are part of the section ‘Opera Manifesto’, a series of posters hung in several spots throughout Rome and available until 04.08.2021.
Selected artists are Danish artist Karin Birgitte Lund and the Swiss artist Nastasia Meyrat who worked on the theme of Rome and the journey. The work will also become an access point to the content taken from the Archivio Storico Istituto Luce Cinecittà. Through the QR code on the poster it will be possible to watch short videos on the theme of travel by cruise from the '20s to the '70s.

«The journey I am interested in is the one that concerns the subjects of my works. I try to make them talk and I “become” them, like it was a sort of performance. The journey is made by representations of bodies in transformation and depicts subjects that conjure up the idea of vulnerability or from the point of view of animal creatures that ‘speak’ to us. The idea of the journey consists of a change of perspective (…) Pigeons have a political history of travelling, some of them have been to war, this multitude of characteristics linked to the movement of these birds and the way humans perceive them, makes this subject a rich material to work with». Nastasia Meyrat

Nastasia Meyrat lives and works in Lausanne and Geneva, CH. She was a fellow resident at the Swiss Institute in Rome in 2019-2020. In 2020, she was invited to exhibit in Marseille for Manifesta 13.

The project, promoted by Roma Culture, is the winner of Estate Romana 2020-2021-2022 curated by the Department of Cultural Activities.

Archibloom è un collettivo di giovani architetti, urbanisti e paesaggisti. Nasce come gruppo di ricerca indipendente che si dedica allo studio di diversi temi, in particolare quelli che riguardano l’abitare. Il collettivo sperimenta linguaggi e forme espressive diverse grazie alle diverse anime che lo compongono: dalla grafica al disegno, all’autocostruzione e la performance. Archibloom fa delle relazioni, della multidisciplinarietà e della partecipazione al processo creativo la sua pratica progettuale.

ATI suffix è un collettivo multidisciplinare il cui nome cambia secondo i progetti, nell’ottica di rifiutare le identità chiuse. L’adozione del suffisso italiano -ATI è pensata, in un’ottica metodologica, per permettere a ogni progetto di essere concepito e compreso come reciproco, imperativo per il pubblico e fonte di auto-trasformazione per i membri.
