Adriano La Licata, VHS 2015
Current MFA participant Adriano La Licata (IT) has a solo exhibition at Von Holden Studio, Palermo – curated by Francesco De Grandi and VHS.
17.12.2015 – 17.01.2016 / Opening december 17th, 19.00 h
“It remains this strange sense of a light and sweet work, so pure it can reach the innocence, but intense and sincere at the same time.”
Francesco De Grandi
Von Holden Studio opens the exhibition season with ‘ALL’, solo exhibition of the Sicilian artist Adriano La Licata (Palermo, 1989), enhanced by the curatorial support of artist Francesco De Grandi, one generation older than him and always attentive to the nursery of artists in the capital.
The exhibition, which opens Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 19:00, is composed by a clear body of work, 3 key moments of the latest research of the artist. It has been preferred to focus on a few elements as specific as fragile, along the balance of the biographical abstraction. Between documentation and ambiguity, amongst a delicate tragicomic vein and a strong meditative propensity, Adriano La Licata investigates – as he describes in his own words – ‘ that sensitive energy which arises between two or more points’.

MFA tutor Marjolijn Dijkman has a solo at Rundum, as part of the Fotokuu Biennal in Talinn, Estland.
The film installation In Our Hands is based on research into hand gestures that were developed to influence, heal, predict – or ward off – the future. The final choreography includes a range of gestures from diverse sources – from spiritual to political to military – that have become removed from their original context. The film consists of a with motion capture produced animation of two virtual transparent hands. In Our Hands relates to current debates around Artificial Intelligence, it’s often anthropomorphic character and the concept of singularity with a form of super intelligence that we will or won’t keep in control.
The accompanying sound piece in the exhibition is a composition made of 18 computer generated binaural tones or brainwaves.
The exhibition opens tonight, thursday oct 22, and runs until november 8th.
