Gustavo Mendez-Liska & Giulio Camagni
The Artwork as a distillation of the impressions that nourished and modelled us – this is a core characteristic of our work. The beginning is an impulse to do: we get started for the sake of doing, lead by the work taking shape in our hands and which, once finished, offers itself to us, naked and proud.
The acknowledgement of the assonance of our works urged us to combine them and set up an exhibition to see how they could actually play together. From the very first moment it became clear to us that the artworks spoke the same language, that a dialog between artworks by different artists was about to take place, and that we were eager to let them talk and to listen to them.
