STEFANO CALLIGARO / For not turning all my nothing into something, SABOT, Cluj-Napoca

7 October - 12 November 2011

now imagine the water
it being transparent and clean
not only in a glass
but as a pond
a river
as the ocean
imagine as if it were all things
sounds
colours
your thoughts
your gestures
some simple shapes a bunch of photos
an untold story
two angles perpendicular
a wooden brick
the bag that’s hanging on your shoulder
a nice warm summer

Stefano Calligaro / For not turning all my nothing into something

somehow the waves are moving
aligned
somehow they do

now imagine a snowball not bigger than your fist
solid compact white pure
watch it
ten seconds
and turn it
feel its weight
its bright-lit colours nicely shaped

keep yourself busy

stretch out your hands
let fall into the water

Stefano Calligaro (Cividale del Friuli, 1976) is an Italian artist living and working in Rotterdam. His work revolves around intuitive and simple gestures, hermetic elements, and shapes. The outcome is usually a floating idea, an object, a note, or just a trace almost hidden to our view. Recent exhibitions include Plants, rocks and a fish inhabited pond, Wcw gallery, Hamburg; Quiet is the new loud, Hotel Mariakapel, Hoorn; Lobby, Cell project space, London; and The object of the attack, The David Roberts Art Foundation, London.
