I.

Exhibition: "My Perversion is the Belief in True Love"
Artist: Ellen Cantor
Venue: Isabella Bortolozzi Gallery
Dates: Until March 24th, 2018


Are we all victims to romantic idealism or normative desires? 

Cantor (1961-2013) was an American artist based in London and New York. She was as part of a young generation of feminist artists exploring new modes of female representation. In her intimate works she is using narratives of iconic films, fictional figures from Disney cartoons, cult horror films, New Wave cinema, and family movies. "My perversion is the belief in true love" is the title to the only survey exhibition of her video works held in her lifetime.

Exhibition: Pneuma
Artist: Franco Mazzucchelli
Venue: ChertLüdde
Dates: Until April 14th, 2018


Franco Mazzucchelli was born in 1939 and lives in Milan. He created with the "Arte Povera" movement where he created with synthetic materials large-scale inflatable objects, which he placed in public outdoor spaces. "Cono 1 and 2" can even be seen in the unique gallery space of Chert Lüdde. For this show he created inflatable canvas for a pure banal decoration "Bieca Decorazione." An ironic title referring to the mere decorative function of art.
