Doubles · by Ivan Dal Cin

"Artworks require constant and detailed mediation: explanatory texts, photographic documentation, speeches, catalogues, etc. From the work to the public, a series of steps unfold other than neutral and transparent. Each mediation selects, reorganises, interprets, adds or subtracts meanings and formal values from the original work. It is not only an inevitable communicative process, but also a fertile and fruitful concatenation to understand and generate further forms and meanings. Contemporary art has achieved a profound awareness of the importance of these mediations, to the point of often producing works that merely propose this process. Doubles is an exhibition in which six artists work in tandem, divided into pairs. Three artists are called to interpret and remedy, each through a pre-established medium, the works created by three other artists." Denis Viva
