In Fear and Trembling, Grzegorz Klaman‘s project for FAU, several kneeling human figures, cloaked in amorphous black robes, slowly and repeatedly hit their heads against the wall. Their behavior recalls states of trance or hysteria. A black, sticky substance has spilled down the wall from the large, horizontal windows located high above the floor and the figures, imposing its blackness on the space, the figures, and the viewer. The title, Fear and Trembling, is borrowed from the Danish Philosopher Soren Kierkegaard’s writing on religious devotion and the boundaries of individual sacrifice and internal conflict.

Marc Andre Robinson works in sculpture, drawing, video and interactive public projects that revolve around a psychology of historical, cultural and familial belonging. Playing with the dialogue between art and artifact, he collects discarded furniture and transforms it into sculptural assemblages with complex and delicately balanced symbology. Robinson’s drawings are often marked by meticulous patterning and repetition, while his public projects have involved creating catalysts for members of the community to voice their historical reflections.

Taken from their website: In this context, we wanted to carry out our interactive installation Prophylactic rain that doesn’t wet anything, with which we intended to leave a little lighted water in memory of former uses, this time we wanted to do it with drops of water falling on the deteriorated remnants of cement. To give them shape we used condoms, yes, condoms, extra large and extra strength, to which we added blue colored water, to turn them into big drops, with feel and form of silicone breasts, very pleasant to touch and squeeze. With them we created a square space, delimited by suspended droplets in which one could immerse themselvesand touch them, listening to the gentle sound of the moving water. Thanks to the magic of light and water, we were able to convert 800 common condoms, into a sensory and relaxing refuge, suitable for all audiences. Link here.

” I work in mixed print media; screen-printing, relief printing, collagraph, chine colle, and mono-prints, although drawing is at the heart of my work. Drawing as a way of knowing, as a mode of enquiry and as a visual language. Life drawing is the source of all my print work and is ongoing. It is the most important part of my art. I love the idea of the repetition of images and use it throughout much of my work. Working in this medium, I have found a new and vibrant palette, which has spilled over into my long-standing interest in life painting, and has tapped into a deeply buried childhood enjoyment of colour.” – Maisie Parker

His début on the artistic Italian scene is in 1984 with Extemporanea, the exhibition which marks the re-opening of the legendary roman gallery l’Attico by Fabio Sargentini, which would dedicate to Ragalzi many personal exhibitions in the years to come. He takes part to the exhibition Anniottanta at the Modern Art Gallery in Bologna in 1985. That same year he is invited to the Museo de Arte in Sao Paulo, Brasil, and some of his works are presented at L’Italie Aujourd’hui, exhibition hosted by the Centre Nazionale d’Art Contemporain in Nice and in 1986 he takes part to the Frankfurt-Hannover-Wien travelling exhibition Aspekte der Italienischen Kunst 1960/1985, curated by Renato Barilli. In 2001, his sculptures are presented at the exhibition Italian sculpture in the 20th-Century, Italy-Japan 2001-2002, which is hosted at the three Japanese modern art museums in Ibaraki, Yokoana and Kagoshima. An anthological exhibition is organised at the industrial premises of Pagliero, in Castellamonte (Turin), in 2007. The most significant personal exhibitions in 2008 are: Acquario at Allegretti gallery in Turin, Voliere at Delloro gallery in Rome, Due insetti neri at Rivara Castle and Pioggia Nera at Grossetti Contemporary Art in Milan.
