Printmaking is the “non-place” of art. That space of thought and doing that has the license to operate in the freedom of non belonging.
For some years now, work within the strict technical dictates, which are the fascinating prerogative of printmaking, has appropriated the languages of other artistic disciplines, from sculpture to installation and performance. The concept that has consolidated over the centuries the fascination of printmaking given by the subjection of the matrix from which the works take shape – the concept of contact between matrix and sheet – has been progressively replaced by the concept of multiple. It does not matter what its origin is – even the classic engraving – but the concept of the multiple is now closely linked to it. This means that, in a very short time, unthinkable possibilities have gived up before, opening new horizons for experimentation.
This is what is done in RUFA, in the printmaking laboratory, under the guidance of Maria Pina Bentivenga and Gianna Bentivenga, and what is presented in this exhibition, within Roma Art Week 2020, is the result of the last years of work and collaboration between students and teachers. In RUFA Space we propose a selection of works that starting from the concept of multiple and go to animate the space.
