Language is a code, “a system of conventional symbols” that we use to communicate a message, an intention, a will, a wish, a desire, but also to share thoughts, ideas, and to exchange opinions. Language is variable, flexible, possibly based on precise rules. It can be understood, misunderstood or it can cause barriers. It can be spoken, written, painted, reproduced, fragmented, or even destroyed. This exhibition gathers digital artworks, pictures, and videos that represent the multifaceted world of languages, their features, and contradictions.
Work from Aaron Wilder's Unfreezing project is included in the exhibition. This is a series of digital mixed media pieces reflecting on the individual application of Kurt Lewin's Model of Change developed in the 1950s. One of the key methodologies for helping organizations navigate the process of business transformation, I have explored in this series the potential for applying this to a person. Lewin's model has three stages: Unfreezing, Change, Re-Freezing. Given the title chosen for this body of work, the focus of the series is on the first stage where an individual acknowledges their "as is" state and their "to be" state.
LoosenArt is an on line gallery and platform dedicated to contemporary visual arts, born and based on principles of contemporaneity, the very same principles in which contact, connection and exchange are prerogatives of a cultural evolution supported by a technology that is the expression of an interest to find new channels to relate freely and more directly to the others, an interest to demonstrate an innate need of human contact, where meetings are always something which give rise to something else.
The LoosenArt project provides a space where art finds further support of its role, of its deeper meaning, of it being a channel through which man relates with others, with the world and reality. Being in contact with all of this, means being linked, feeling and grasping what is originated from all reality, so it also means feeling what today we perceive as an emergency, that need to answer and to measure. Due to this reason LoosenArt supports some organizations engaged in the field of environmental protection.
The LoosenArt Gallery Artwork offers are not covered by commercial logic widespread in the contemporary art system, where the value of the same artwork reflects the costs to possess it. Our offers are the expression of an interest to reach a common goal, that both the gallery and its artists share. A value, which even more importantly, can be traced in the recognition of a principle rooted in the natural urge to communicate and participate, in response to that innate need for meeting others.
