Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea is proud to present Weird Tales, the first solo exhibition of the Ukrainian artist Vladimir Manzhos (aka Waone of Interesni Kazki ), ex member with Aec, of the first in Ukraine and all post soviet contries muralist duo named Interesni Kazki.
The title of the show, Weird Tales, as the name of the famous American pulp magazine founded in 1923 which published the stories of writers such as H.P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury and Richard Matheson, introduces us to the fantastic universe of Waone, where the fables and folklore of Eastern Europe blend with the tradition of surrealist painting and South American muralism.
Weird Tales is a cycle of works that show various aspects of Waone’s bizarre visual universe, imagined as if they were a collection of fantastic fables.
In addition to the paintings and drawings belonging to the Weird Tales series, Waone for the occasion will create a wall painting on the entrance wall of the gallery.
El Gato Chimney
Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea is proud to present in Little Circus, the gallery’s project room, Eterno Ritorno, the special project of the Italian artist El Gato Chimney, curated by Michela D’Acquisto.
Driven by the same taxonomic impulse that has always pushed man to organize nature in the hope of making it his own, El Gato Chimney uses the method of cataloging to highlight the correspondences that govern the relationship between the idea and the work of art.
In Eterno Ritorno, the artist thus presents a complex examination on the archive as an art form, while at the same time making us aware of the inescapable impossibility of human attempts to dominate the animal world.
On show large-format watercolors and a site-specific installation.
