transition_Giorgio Morandi | “are you still there”


MAMbo - Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna
15  November 2015 - 3 April 2016


After the recent-year exhibitions dedicated to Bernd & Hilla Becher, Alexandre Hollan, Wayne Thiebaud, Tacita Dean and Rachel Whiteread, it is now the turn of Brigitte March Niedermair to compare her works with those by Giorgio Morandi  in the exhibit “Horizon” - from 15 November to 3 April 2016 at MAMbo - Modern Art Museum in Bologna,  which houses the collections of the Museo Morandi.
Brigitte March Niedermair  is presenting two series of photographic works in dialogue with the collection of the museum. They spring from two different lines of research, carried out in places that are not just physically but conceptually distant. On the one hand Giorgio Morandi’s studio on Via Fondazza, a snug and intimate place, custodian of the mystery of his poetics, and on the other the pyramids of Egypt, imposing and majestic works of funerary architecture, repositories of the greatest mysteries of the civilizations of the past.
And yet there is an unseen but coherent thread that connects these two lines of research: the study of the horizon, that invisible mental space which marks the limits of the visible and which symbolically represents the boundary of an inner spiritual quest.
