Tevere Art Gallery (TAG) is one of the most interesting contemporary art galleries of the Roman scene. In 20 years of activity it has always stood for the authenticity of research, for the uncanny ability to sniff out the most promising artists of the last decades, highlighting in each step, from the selection of artists to their staging, an anti-academic autonomy and freedom from the prevailing taste of the art system. This has made it a real laboratory of ideas and experiments that continues to challenge contemporary age. A long talk about our project together with TAG responsible was enough to understand that this was the most suitable space for Hyperexpressionist Movement baptism. The exhibit was conceived quite naturally, from the dialogue between the artworks of Fiorani and Sileoni and those long white walls of the gallery.
In tune with the famous statement by Paul Klee “to look at a painting you need a chair” and pondering upon the exhibit space (that recalls an old disused railway station), seven benches were placed before Hyperexpressionist artworks, so as to invite the viewer to take all the time required to weave a relationship with the artworks.
