Andrea Magnani

magnaniandrea.com

Andrea Magnani (1983) lives and works in Milan. His research delves into meaning-making processes, staging the overlapping of order and generative tensions. In his meticulously constructed environments, the viewer is haunted by a distilled reality where uncanny yet familiar objects participate in a sensual balancing act. Whether being unreadable drawings, “fake readymades” or non-spectacular performances, the dialogue among every part of a work aids to evoke non-verbal feelings. Erosive ambiences, where the boundary between reality (authenticity) and representation (art) is constantly shifting.
Andrea has exhibited and performed in public and private spaces, including: INTERSTATE Projects, Marsèlleria (New York), Kai Art Center (Tallinn), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, PAV, Giorgio Galotti, Archivio di Stato (Turin), T293, Fondazione Baruchello, Villa Farinacci promoted by MAXXI museum (Rome), Live Arts Week at MAMbo(Bologna), Italienska Kulturinstitutet (Stockholm), Stanford Housing (London), Can Serrat (Barcelona), Bevilacqua La Masa (Venice), Marsèlleria, O’, Viafarini, Crepaccio, Mars (Milan).

Founded in 1974, the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève is a place for exhibition, discussion and reflection on contemporary art. A pioneer and reference institution on the Swiss and international art scene, the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève raises the major issues of our time.
A space for research and experimentation, the Centre presents to all audiences ambitious projects, often produced for the occasion, involving all fields of contemporary practice: installation, music, painting, performance, photography, photography, sculpture, dance, drawing or video art, with a unique program of events and projections within its Cinema Dynamo and the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement as its high point.

 

The Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement was founded in 1985 in Geneva and was reinvented in 2014 as a platform for producing new works. A unique hybrid event—at the crossroads of a film festival, a plethora of solo exhibitions, performances and a platform for research and production—the BIM brings together visual artists, performers, musicians and filmmakers. The latter engage in a dialogue with the curators throughout the production process of a new work, financed or co-financed by the Centre and premiering in Geneva. The Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement in Geneva has therefore become a full-fledged production platform, with each edition presenting only new works.

 

The 2018 edition of the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement, The Sound of Screens Imploding, curated by Andrea Bellini, Director of the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, and Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator, International Art (Film) at Tate Modern, has been transformed into an innovative project. At its center—alongside an extraordinary series of films, performances, and concerts—is an exhibition designed to form a single, vast, immersive environment. The concept for the show, which covered over 2,000 square meters, revolved around a fundamental principle: that moving images now live outside the screen, lingering on in a fascinating kaleidoscope where vision can be shaped even by sound.

 

Emphasizing the innovative potential of new languages connected to the moving image, the 2018 Biennale forged an intense dialogue with a generation of artists from a wide range of countries and backgrounds.
