Marsèlleria permanent exhibition presents Pure Disclosure (from April 10th to May 10th 2015), an exhibition by Alessandro Agudio, Daniel Keller, Andrea Magnani, and Timur Si-Qin, curated and produced by Siliqoon, an artistic production label based in Milan. Pure Disclosure is the result of a project that started out in 2014. Siliqoon invited the four artists to work side by side with 13 companies, representatives of the Italian artisan excellence, hosted by Casa Natali/MAMbo, and Spazio RAUM in a residence in Bologna.
This experience originated a corpus of works based on the artists’ individual research, characterized by a shared aesthetic sensibility and approach. The works appear as postcapitalistic products, presented following commercial promotional logics, thus creating a friction with their spiritual, critical, ironic nature. The space within Marsèlleria is made up of an itinerary which, between hybridization and disorientation, invites to a consideration on the mechanisms of visual culture and the related fruition criteria. Frozen in their antinomian substance, artifice and nature, marketing and culture are discerned and superimposed.
Siliqoon is a Milan based art label and a creative consulting agency founded in the spring of 2014. Through the Labs it produces and promote works made by young contemporary artists in collaboration with the sickest worldwide cutting edge companies.
