Vassivière – Marisa Merz at CIAP
From July 15th to September 26th 2010, the Centre international d’art et du paysage de l’île de Vassivière hosts a solo exhibition of Marisa Merz, an unmistakable figure of Arte Povera who has developed an original, solitary work. The artworks on exhibit are characterized by the wise recourse to silence and absence, elements with which Marisa Merz has throughout the years known how to use in a repertoire of forms as intense as they are evanescent.
Since the seventies, Marisa Merz’s presence has uniquely and continuously convoked minimal apparitions, incomplete figures, fragments of bodies or objects, relics made from soft materials. The shown works are new productions entirely conceived for the Centre international d’art et du paysage de l’île de Vassivière.
