Descripción de la Exposición
NOTA: LA FECHA DE CIERRE INDICADA ES SÓLO ORIENTATIVA. Agrate Conturbia, 20 April 2022. Immersed in the Novara countryside, from 7 May to September 2022, CASCINA I.D.E.A. - the rural complex transformed by Nicoletta Rusconi Art Projects into a place dedicated to art and experimentation - presents Green rim, a solo exhibition by Belé n Uriel (1974). Green rim - literally translated “bordo verde" and understood as the optical phenomenon visible due to the refraction of sunlight through increasing density near the horizon - represents a deepening of Belé n Uriel's research project on the reciprocity between the human body and everyday objects. Helmets, body protectors or outdoor furniture. Here is a partial list of the consumer objects, created to engage with the external environment, for the protection of the body in leisure and recreation, that circulate in Belé n Uriel's work. They are universal, so familiar and ordinary to all of us ... that they become almost invisible: they are something "that serves a purpose", which at first glance is absorbed into a finality of uses, Roland Barthes would say. Mediators, as such, between the subject and the world, these products that seem to exist for other reasons - recreation, refreshment, protection, for example - have a precise social and anthropological purpose: that of being means of signification, scattered signs and real languages. On the premise that "signification" does not mean any conveyance of information, Uriel's interest in these objects reveals their technological connotation, i.e. that they are defined by relations of production and consumption: how is nature produced and marketed? By focusing her gaze precisely on the idealisation of nature and taking inspiration from objects that are bearers of meaning regardless of their function, Belé n Uriel gives new life and new breath so that objects can be reunited with their own beauty, escaping the seriality of production and opening up in an embrace of the unexpected: we believe we are in a practical world of uses of the object, when in fact we also find ourselves in a world of meaning and reasons in which we can find ourselves. Green rim is Uriel's attempt to construct a semiology more than and beyond the science of signification, as a pertinent look at the world, as a scent of meaning wherever it may be concealed: "there is always a meaning that goes beyond the use of the object". As if we were equipped with lenses, a few degrees above the horizon, when the Sun is low and the dispersion is great enough to make its green upper limbs visible - the green edge, in fact - from the subtle interaction of glass, iron and bronze Belé n Uriel seeks to "create a dialogue between the observation of the original designs of objects, the shadows of their materiality, and their relationship with the body, to reflect, through a sculptural vocabulary, on a series of obsessions that are defining our present time". Belén Uriel (Madrid, 1974), lives and works between Lisbon and London.
