"BIENNALE DI FLORENCE "
23.10.21- 01.11.21, Fortezza da Basso, Florence.
The theme of the XIII edition of the Florence Biennale focuses on the polychrome and multiform universe of femininity, which will be investigated in its many facets, starting from two major guidelines.
On the one hand, the idea that outlines femininity in its immutable essence, which has inspired various of the most important artistic and literary creations in the history of humanity and which unravels from the primordial cult of the Great Mother up to the famous Beatrice of Dante Alighieri and Johann Wolfgang Goethe's "Femineo eterno" (ie the Eternal Feminine): the idea of femininity as a reflection of divinity, as a spiritual love that crosses the boundaries of time, as a source of purification and elevation, and as a strength of the universe that forms and holds everything.
On the other hand, the idea of perennial change that characterizes the contemporary world and that also affects femininity, which has been transformed and is transformed by the thrust of social and cultural movements such as those that have developed around feminisms and communities LGBTQ. From the sexual revolution of the 1960s to the battles for equal opportunities, up to the debate on gender identities, there are countless stimuli that have led to a redefinition of the concept of femininity, increasing its complexity and multidimensionality even more.
"INTRECCI, TALE OF THE HUMAN BEING"
10.08.21- 31.08.21, Yatch Club of Porto Rotondo, Molo di Levante, 07026, Porto Rotondo, SS
In August Giacco's textile sculptures will be hosted by the Yatch Club of Porto Rotondo, in collaboration with the Canova gallery.
The inspiration that leads to the definition of Giacco's textile sculptures was born in Sardinia, from the observation of the gesture of a sailor who, in handling the ropes, imprinted on them vigor and at the same time love. The project is linked to a double theme: environmental, providing for the use of peaks that are abandoned and historical, the use of peaks already lived brings with it the history and scents of sea travel.
The art of sailing, fishing, love for the sea is transposed into the top object and then takes on a new life in works of art that carry their experience with them.
Thus was born the dialogue in the Yacht Club headquarters, to celebrate the meeting of the different worlds of art that thus find a union.
The peaks of Giacco hold the mystery of life, they are ropes that carry with them all our past, they tell about our bonds and the superstructures we undergo but at the same time they are bridges for our desires and for our future, all in one .
09.07.21- 15.07.21, Scoobafish Art Gallery, via Maddalena 3, 07026, San Pantaleo, SS
The Scoobafish Art Gallery presents Emanuela Giacco's exhibition entitled Legami, critical texts by Giuditta Elettra Lavinia Nidiaci. With the inauguration on Friday 9 July, the dialogue between Giacco's works opens with the works of Maurizio Sergiusti, artist as well as owner of the gallery. An event aimed at stimulating a constructive confrontation in which the issues are addressed from different perspectives.
Following the words of Giuditta Elettra Lavinia Nidiaci
“We could be walking around in any city, with the heat, hand in hand and I should notice your sad smile and then give you a kiss or take your face and make you make a face that mimics the joy. You would smile and my wish for happiness for you would be fulfilled. The truth is that I like your sad smiles, because they look good to you, because you know how to treat them, you know how to use them and put them in line without breaking ranks. If I did it, it would be painful.This is the point: I think and desire new things. It doesn't matter what I know. For the first time, it doesn't matter. I don't know where they come from or what they are called and I couldn't explain them to anyone except you, with a little time, with a little pause, with those silences that I couldn't fill at the beginning. But I could learn. I'm a bad romantic, I admit. That's why I couldn't make you fall in love. I know it is. I figured that I could be enough, with my normal ways and a swashbuckling air. Faithfully safe. And time, to explain what is missing, to show you that it would be worth it in the end. I tried, what to say, to make me choose. I hoped. I had to. It was a possibility, do you understand? How to put it away, to forget it. Maybe waiting, maybe it wasn't the time. Maybe you and I have another time. I'm sure with a few more days, now more, I would have taken you away with me. It's the idea that it happens at least once, isn't it? You know? That invasive and subterranean idea that sinks or reveals itself and does it once and for all and if you feel it you can't ignore it if you have some sense. Like a floating and sinuous hiss. This happened to me: I couldn't pretend nothing happened, I didn't want to, after all. I could not help but try to take you with me, from the depths, almost out of selfishness, to make me feel good. Even though I knew I couldn't. Even if it was risky. Even if you don't want to, even if, ultimately, your happiness doesn't depend on me. And I can't help but ask you again. Just to be sure. Would you come? "
(From Italo Calvino, Before you say "Hello", 1985)
Legàmi is a noun that gives us back and embodies the idea of the feelings that lie in the Hyperuranium without an apparent pragmatic confirmation. Légami is a verb conjugated to the imperative, a command with which the intention to live and enjoy a feeling is often manifested. The sculptures modeled by Emanuela Giacco for Scoobafish Art Gallery, through intertwined ropes now bending to a rigid order now following an entropic chaos, easily suggest the intent of the same to convey a pulsating energy, to be the connector of an ideal visual inspiration. . The title of the exhibition, as well as the modus and medium that allowed the realization of the works, have in themselves the self-evident reference to the textures that materially make up the fabric, and therefore, in a figurative sense, to the cooperation between the artist and his public. , who through their mutual interaction, operate and discover a reinterpretation of both the artist's person and a particular social fabric, which goes beyond the usual context of sector expertisers. Here, as Gino De Dominicis asserted, it is not only the work that is exposed to the public, but it is also the latter that is exposed to the work. Works, those of Emanuela Giacco, which present a close reciprocal correlation, not only for modus and medium, which repeat and follow each other, of realization of the same: the alpha and omega of the project all merge and synthesize in the large ball of a black cosmic, it is in fact from there that everything flows and flows together as for an archetypal ideal, which also turns its gaze to the previous pictorial poetics of the artist.
IN SEARCH OF INTABLE BALANCES
08.08.20- 29.08.20, Spargi Room, Grand Hotel Poltu Quatu, 07021, Arzachena
It is with a personal exhibition curated and presented by Sabrina La leggia that Emanuela in the summer of 2020 is being discovered at Poltu Quatu. In the heart of the Costa Smeralda in a "particular" summer the artist sends a signal of courage and strength, we are in fact in the midst of the pandemic caused by the Sars-Cov 2 virus which has drastically frozen our lives. Following the words of Sabrina La Leggia.
"Nothing is created; Nothing is destroyed"
It is the law that identified Lavoisier, the scientist who in the eighteenth century was the initiator of modern chemistry. The works of the artist Emanuela Giacco suggest a poetic evolution of this scientific rule: Metamorphosis, Sulle corde del Destino, L'Eterno scalare, Il Burattinaio, Presenza Absenza, Absence Presence, Reflection, Inside, Outside, The grasp of Silence , Gesture of Intellect, Behind the Face I, Behind the Face II, The Abduction of Proserpina, Morale of the Individual, Alchemy.00, Alchemy.01, Alchemy.Throne and Alchemy.in Gold. The point is the fusion between the spiritual and physical world, between human and virtual, between the artist's narrated bodies and space in time.
In this exhibition, Emanuela observes a contemporary universe in which the connection between human beings is so close that their freedom is difficult. Bodies in constant metamorphosis, are trapped by tight ropes, in an impossible search for "unstable balances". The story, which is anything but linear, is unstructured, as are its bodies and the images of the iconography of Christ.
Great names of the past are the masters who inspired Giacco: Magritte, Dali and Balthus.
Each of them studied the relationship between human nature and time in a personal and rigorous way, giving Emanuela ideas and teaching her a lot.
The entire exhibition is a narration on the genesis and evolution of the human being.
One of the most interesting artists of her generation, Emanuela Giacco, works with clarity and a critical sense on an investigation into universal themes linked to the psychological effects of human relationships. The theme is exactly this, human frailty and Emanuela puts it into action before our eyes, involving us immediately.

A jury, composed of Count Luigi Donà dalle Rose, Mrs Pai Hruska, the sculptor Emmanuel Chapalain, Sabrina La Leggia, and the curator of the exhibition Aldo Manzanares, will have the task of choosing the winning artist of the fourth edition of “PortoRotondo Le Quai des Artistes ".

from 29.03.19 to 3.04.19, Palazzo dell'Emiciclo, L'Aquila
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the L'Aquila earthquake , it seems to be able to find strength and memory, thanks to the strong message that culture and expressly art transmit.
Resistenze is an exhibition that sees two artists from L'Aquila performers who, with different experiences and having had national and international recognition and training, question themselves on the process of reworking pain, and try to tell with images, not only the sufferings and losses, but above all what it is possible to find, through paths that are those of knowledge, of the interior life, but also those of nature and confrontation with events. From the first three sections, destiny, pain and reflection, we arrive at spring, still understood as the preparation of an awakening.
With different techniques, in formats ranging from very large to small, Giacco and Serpetti expose the symbols that embody these processes: destiny is the rope or the mannequin, pain is physical but it is also fear and inability to foresee nature and ambushes.
How to get out of predestination from pain.
Man does not know, but he can close himself and reflect, so the images of the exhibition become solitary heroes closed in on themselves, guardians or warriors. Resistance is renewal, waking up in spring, after visiting unknown and underground places and having recovered a new strength.
The eye ranges between colors that are sometimes bright and strong, sometimes fade and soften. The different techniques, as well as the stylistic rendering, give the exhibition a particular incisiveness, as if, by descending into these paths of resistance and fear, the vision is confused, seeking in the painting an optimal description for the emotion. The exhibition is promoted by the NOT TO BE Cultural Association in collaboration with the Concentus Serafino Aquilano Music Association, which supported the event, which anticipates the events scheduled for the tenth anniversary, which expressly looked to two young local artists by birth, but open to multiple Italian and international experiences, in order to create public and private collaboration for the benefit of culture. The prestigious seat of the Hemicycle Palace , made available by the Abruzzo region, and the far-sightedness of public institutions, are combined with the efforts of partners and supporters, so that an event of resonance is created, not only at the territorial level, but able to to attract an audience of collectors and lovers of culture, to make circuit, network and dissemination.The exhibition is curated by Monica Di Paola, with a contribution by Marina Mattei, accompanied by a catalog edited by Monica Di Paola and Marina Mattei.

"ART and TRUTH"
event in construction
<< Science is no longer concerned with the physical and material world; moral philosophy has lost the direction of the intelligences; religion still governs the masses in some way, but it does not reign in the highest social spheres; the principle of charity, which inspires it, always exists, but that of faith no longer shines. The intellectual leaders of our times are unbelievers or skeptics, perfectly sincere and loyal, but they doubt their art and look at each other with a smile like Roman wishes. Publicly, privately, they foresee social catastrophes without finding the remedy, or they wrap their dark oracles in cautious euphemisms.
Under these auspices, literature and art have lost their sense of the divine. A large part of the young people, having lost sight of the eternal horizons, turned to what the new masters call naturalism, thus degrading the beautiful name of nature; for what they speak of this word is nothing but the apology of the base instincts, the mud of vice or the complacent painting of our social baseness, in short, the systematic negation of the soul and intelligence. And the poor psyche, having lost its wings, groans and sighs strangely in the depths of the conscience of those who insult and deny it >>
Thus, in 1887, Schurè wrote in the preface of one of his greatest books, current words which unfortunately still seem to describe today's scenario.
Hence the cycle of Hide True works which, like an oxymoron, places the accent on the evils of today, linked to a decidedly winning materiality over spirituality, showing the raw face of prevailing materialism as opposed to the divine torch, and thus generating reflection on the path of salvation, loaded with light, faith, energy and trust in human freedom.
