E3 contemporary art gallery in Brescia inaugurates the new season with “BLACK MODE”, a large exhibition path, curated by Alberto Fiz, that involves Italian and foreign artists around “ BLACK ” with works present for the occasion. As Alberto Fiz states, “the exhibition represents  a precious opportunity to reflect on the secret component of matter by placing ourselves in front of all the puzzles and precariousness in front of us and also system where our tools of knowledge are limited”.

From Kazimir Malevich to Alberto Burri, black is intended as an embryonic element that contains all things in power and, based on these premises, the path of a varied review unfolds and the original parts of which different approaches are compared to a same suggestion. Looking for the words of the philosopher Alain Badiou, it could be said that the black mode meets the “infinite synthesis of lights within the mysterious black”.

Sculptures, videos, installations are just some of the ways in which a real kaleidoscope of proposals and opportunities is staged that develop in a dialectical and relational dimension.

Black Mode (the title is a play on words that takes its cue from the mode of use on social networks on smartphones) therefore, it is an exhibition that intercepts the spectator’s mobile gaze attracted by the non-color, as is the case for its opposite, the White.

Black becomes a space of knowledge where Domenico Bianchi’s delicate ceremonies are found, as well as Gerold Miller ‘total objects“. The tension towards the object involves Paolo Canevari with his tires transfigured and manipulated by those opposed to the alchemical creations of Bruno Ceccobelli. Together with Davide Coltro’s electronic paintings which propose a process of progressive transformation, there are many minimalist suggestions in a context where Riccardo De Marchi’s aluminum surfaces are traced, the geometric shapes in solid graphite by Susan York. The perfect and paradoxical balances by Emmanuele De Ruvo, total surfacing by Matteo Gironi and powder-coated steel by Christine Liebich.

At the and,”BLACK” as a research perspective, but also as a tension towards infinity.
