Casa Testori -Milan (I)
“Meristà” duo exhibition curated by Giulia Zorzi
Opening: Saturday 17th October 2020 from 5PM to 10.00PM
Exhibition dates: from 17th October to 15th November
It presents the work by visual artists Ilaria Turba and Fatima Bianchi and is curated by Giulia Zorzi
The exhibition triggers a dialogue between the artists through the different rooms of the house, taking into account the history of the place and the people who lived here. Drawing inspiration from personal and family life, Ilaria Turba and Fatima Bianchi rework their own memories, interweaving different languages.
The exhibition is completed by a common work on the photographic archive of the Testori family: a selection of images presented in an intertwined reinterpretation by the artists.
Memory as a fertile and generative ground, a place of discoveries and revelations.
“Meristà” is a word we made up. It stems from ‘meristem’, a type of tissue found in plant that consists of undifferentiated cells capable of cell division. It is also a tribute to Giovanni Testori, great inventor of his own language.
