It's time to go back to street: Marinella Senatore
It’s time to go back to street is Marinella Senatore's first exhibition at ADN Galeria and will be part of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend.
Marinella Senatore's projects fit into the tradition of participatory art that began in the 1960s, a movement marked by the urgent desire to radically reinvent the traditional roles of artist and public, finding new modes of artistic production and interaction between art and the real world. However, due to their conceptual and ephemeral nature, these participatory practices have represented one of the most significant challenges in the art world in recent decades.
How can the museum display participatory art? How does participatory art occupy a space in the art market? Senatore's contribution lies precisely in her ability to answer these questions. Working from both inside and outside the contemporary art system, Senatore breaks the distance between high culture and popular culture without underestimating neither of the spheres. That said, the public happenings she initiates serve as a methodology and also as the content for her productions, taking on each project with a comprehensive vision that considers the spontaneous and bodily experience of participatory actions, as well as the studio work that formalizes them into a material piece of art. The results are works in which the technique is congruent with the content and where process and matter coexist.
