Nicolas Aiello Berlin 2009 Ink on paper
In conjunction with the exhibition dedicated to Toine Horvers, Handwritten books, Christophe Daviet-Thery will also present the work of Nicolas Aiello (born in 1977).
Nicolas Aiello’s art reflects on the relation of the individual to the city, primarily as a collective and political space. The urban space is the privileged ground: through interventions in the public place, though videos, though photos, though papers, though drawings or even cooking smells, which underline the human and political relationships which are inextricably linked to them.
This exhibition which will be organized in two spaces. The first will question the relationship of the image to paper, with his series titled “RTF”, images recorded while walking in the city and which constitute an authentic form of writing.
The second phase will present a series of twenty five drawings titled “Berlin”, executed in 2009. These represent words read during his walks in Berlin, which are transcribed until a visual saturation and unique image are achieved.
“RTF” and “Berlin” will be presented alongside the work of the Swiss poet and writer, Robert Walser.
“RTF” 09/16/1010 – 10/02/10
“Berlin” 10/02/10 – 10/16/10
