This exhibition presents for the first time a number of works which underline the exploration of technique and temporality in the act of artistic creation.  The invited artists each have a practice which is linked to the notion of time, each producing very different forms on very different scales, but which find their common thread in a their unfolding, in the image being taken, in their process. From the study of singularity and seriality in the work of Nathan Hylden (LOS ANGELES) to the process of narrative in the paintings of Grier Edmundson (GLASGOW) to the dying and repetitive reshaping of Heather Cook’s canvases (LOS ANGELES) for each one of these artists the process of fabrication manifests in the art object itself.  In the work of Diego Perrone (ASTI) and Pietro Roccasalva (MILAN) we find evident both a relationship to history and an engagement with artistic precedents. Perrone’s sculptures regroup recurrent themes in his work and often reveal the source used for their making (I pensatori dei Buchi, 2002). This exploration of the source is also at the heart of the work of Roccasalva whose complex oeuvre has as its key the process of mise en abyme.

The aim of this exhibition is to highlight the nature of these processes and to invite a study of this part of each artists practice.
