 Giovanni Rizzoli – Venezia

In occasion of the 58th Venice Biennale at the Beatrice Burati Anderson Art Space and Gallery the show Venezia dedicated to Giovanni Rizzoli’s work, until August 1, is curated by Bruno Cora and Beatrice Burati Anderson. After 20 years from his participation in the 48th Venice Biennale in the exhibition dAPERTuttO, curated by Harald Szeemann – 1999 - Giovanni Rizzoli, a leading representative artist of the 1990s artistic generation in Europe, returns to the lagoon, the show illustrates the continuous dialogue between the artist and his own hometown.

Creator of forms through material elements belonging to the essence of Venice, and through the use of transcendent dimensions, the iconographic universe of Giovanni Rizzoli realizes sculptures, paintings and drawings presenting a vision of Venice both personal and universal, hidden and cliche, loved and suffered, but always present in the creative path of the artist’s work, that is able to sublimate the most intimate experiences of his own being.

Giovanni Rizzoli’s way of expression creates an artistic language that is aesthetical, scientific, religious and poetic. In this show the city of Venice seems to turn into a metaphor of his investigation concerning the time-space of infinity and eternity, of life and death, dimensions evocated by the artist through works that are both enigmatic as strongly defined. His poetic brings together opposite forms of expression, achieving both abstract and realistic and morbid elements and showing a vision of Venice through images that are more emotional than descriptive.
