Individual exhibition opening at the Lume Gallery and participation in the 33rd São Paulo Biennial

O Avesso – obra de Denise Milan, Galeria Lume – SP

Friends, as of today my work with the stones will be exhibited in two São Paulo locations: in the Lume Gallery and in the 33rd São Paulo Biennial.
The individual exhibition orDiNAtion: the DNA of the stone, curated by Marcello Dantas, will debut tomorrow at the Lume Gallery.
There I will display 19 recent and unpublished works that, in a way, make up a synthesis of these years of observation and experimentation with stones.
Commonly, the fact that all creation always begins with the observation of Nature. From there, I continue in search of a symbolic language that reconnects us with our condition as children of the Earth.
Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro’s invitation to join the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo, whose theme is Affective Affinities, you can imagine, filled me with joy!
The project will occupy part of the third floor of the show. It is an installation with crystals that have strangely human forms and it was these improbable and beautiful similarities that
connected me to these ‘stony beings’ from the beginning: through them, it is possible to construct a narrative that reveals us and inserts us into a scenario which is larger and more significant.
The language of stones is a metaphor of our journey of (re-) knowing in the direction of a new bond with the planet that we inhabit and that, in many ways, also inhabits us.I will be happy to share these visions with you! Come by!

33rd International Art Biennial of São Paulo

33rd International Art Biennial of São Paulo – Denise Milan

Friends, now it is no longer a secret: I was invited by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro to present my work with the stones at the 33rd Biennial of São Paulo – Affective Allegiances, to be held in September, at the Biennial Pavilion, in Ibirapuera Park.

This metaphor that I have been building over the years and that connects the mysteries and enchantments of our planet’s underground with the transformations and changes taking place in each one of us, will be transformed into a facility located on the top floor of the pavilion. When you visit the Biennial, be sure not to miss it.

I don’t even need to say how happy I was with this invitation! For me, it is a unique opportunity to convey the lessons from the origins that I have mined during my life. The 33rd Biennial has a different application of the work that I will share with you here in this space for idea exchange. Come visit! #bienalsp2018 #denisemilan
