Vincenzo Marsiglia, Senses and Spaces

in collaboration with Boesso Art Gallery
Vincenzo Marsiglia, who has made a name for himself in and outside Italy, mainly in the field of digital and interactive art, will be a guest at the Brixen Water Light Festival 2020 with the exhibition Senses and spaces in the fortress Franzensfeste.
The exhibition includes current works by the artist, which he has adapted in dialogue with the fortress. Characteristic elements in the artist's work, such as the four-pointed star, whose concise geometry and form have become a trademark of Marsiglia, as well as the interaction with the public, run through all the works of the art exhibition. The play of light in the installations dissolves the boundary between inside and outside, making the exhibition tour a unique perceptual experience.
Kari Kola, Images, 2022
Franzensfeste Fortress, the largest historical complex in South Tyrol, located next to a river at which the artist presents another installation, serves as a great inspiration for the artist and a connection with the project Sounds of the River, on view at the city of Brixen.
The installation is based on very slowly changing colours that will transform the whole area. Different layers of the fortress will be used, creating a strong contrast with how the fortress looks like and is perceived during the day. A site, that sparked the inspiration of the artist with its history of being a military fortress which was not in use and that changed its function to become home for the arts and exhibitions, therefore the goal of the artist is to create abstract, painting-like images, to reflect the diverse
history of the site.
