Kill The Pig in collaboration with Citylab971 presents | AGORA ’| the last monumental intervention by the artist EMMEU for the PUBLIC Urban Art Residence. An area of 2000 square meters overlooking the external courtyard of the structure transformed by the author into a perfect means of contact. Project in balance between the research of one of the most interesting exponents of international abstraction and the environment intended as a place of growth and cultural exchange.
An unprecedented artistic action that EMMEU decides to tackle with a precise objective, “to restore the aesthetics of the perimeter through a large geometric inhabited area”. It emphasizes the nature of the building created for the comparison of different cultures and returns it thanks to a careful pictorial translation able to dialogue and coexist with the already existing architectures. He plunges into the place to create a sophisticated dance of volumes, the absolute protagonists of the composition that, without a point of origin, move in constant expansion between the four walls. Imagine the volumes as conscious beings, a multitude of mathematical profiles that inhabit the walls in an elegant dance that seems to have no end. A difficult job, that of the young Roman artist, the result of a careful reasoning that from the rational architecture that the structure imposes goes towards more sinuous forms of dialogue between public art and the urban fabric.
Bio EMMEU: Italian Urban Artist active since 2005, His research focuses on the development of pure geometries that he interprets through a vision of clear inspiration Escheriano. Maze-like realities and organic constructions in a constant dialogue between content and form. It transforms rational geometries into spaces of contemplation where architectural intelligence are mixed with more intimate mandalas inspired by the work of the Cryptik Group. A creative process focused on the study of the stroke as a containment of large volumes that builds and moves within its compositions. Dynamics that also follows in painting thanks to the creation of canvases where the expanding solids seem to be born as a cellular mitosis around an original nucleus, what Sol LeWitt defined as the purest of forms: the cube.
