Numbers / N.3 Interfluencia
Project Space Exhibition

Curated by Nicola Ricciardi and Roberta Pagani

Curated by Olga Sureda Guasch

Leo Babsky // Samantha Donnelly // Elisa Barrera // Nadir Valente

In late 2011, curator Roberta Pagani started in Italy an independent curatorial project called "Numbers" with the purpose of inviting young Italian and international artist to dialogue with private spaces in order to create site-specific exhibitions on a monthly basis. The project started on December 2011 with "N.0", and continued with numbered show in ascending order in January and February 2012.

For "N.3", Roberta Pagani is collaborating with Nicola Ricciardi, chief curator at Mazen Art and resident curator at Berlin's Node Center, to stimulate the exchange and circulation of ideas on art and space beyond Italy's boundaries. Inspired by GlogauAIR's mission to "create a meeting point between artists from all disciplines to work in collaboration", the curators decided to invite two young Italian artists -Elisa Barrera and Nadir Valente- to dialogue and interact with two resident artists -Samantha Donnelly and Leo Babsky- in order to create a joint exhibition focused on the hidden relations between different artworks that embody reciprocal cross-references- subliminal or explicit.

The exhibition starts with Babsky's minimal, solid and concrete art pieces and continues with the work of Nadir Valente, which transforms Babsky's solid forms in paper-made replicas. Paper is a key element also in the work of Barrera, which uses the same medium but in a weightless way. Her ethereal drawings nonetheless include elements that anticipate the sculptural practice of Donnelly, whose materials-led approach closes the loop of this exhibition reaffirming the material presence made explicit in Babsky's work.
