Some time ago on Arshake we published an article about the Effimera. Disarmonic Relations exhibition, curated by Luca Panaro and Fulvio Chimento at MATA, a new venue in Modena dedicated to contemporary art, with a particular focus on new-generation experimentation.
The exhibition space was inaugurated by Carlo Zanni, the duo known as 01.org, aka Eva and Franco Mattes (in addition to various pseudonyms they have used over the years, including imaginary artist Darko Maver and Nike), and Diego Zuelli, who since 2000 has been involved in computer graphics and video as well as the creation of generative algorithmic images. These three artists are significant for having experimented with information and informatics, revealing its very mechanisms.
As mentioned in the introductory article on 4 April, the exhibition offers an important look at the contemporary, in relation to the artistic experimentation of the new generation, who use the digital realm as material and creative channel, but also to the new configurations of society and life itself, born and developed as the fruit of technology.
Furthermore, this is also an important example of the way in which artworks have been translated into physical space. Arshake is delighted to present these works in a gallery of images until visitors have the opportunity to see the show in person, which will complete their experience, before some of the pieces return to the digital dimension or find new life in other installations.
