Bea Bonafini, Paul Kneale, Rebecca Salter, Serena Vestrucci: Memories Arrested in Space



Bea Bonafini, Paul Kneale, Rebecca Salter, Serena Vestrucci: Memories Arrested in Space

Presented by ARTUNER
On the occasion of the Giornata del contemporaneo / Day of Contemporary Art

Opening 28 September at 7pm

The boundaries and relationships between immateriality and physicality, mathematical principles and nature, reality and fiction, chaos and order are increasingly becoming pressing concerns in everyday life, as our existences are gradually but inexorably shifting towards the predominance of digital realities.
The artists selected for this exhibition straddle precisely these boundaries: Rebecca Salter, Serena Vestrucci, Paul Kneale, and Bea Bonafini.
Each of the exhibited artists champions an original and subversive approach to abstraction, or rather ‘non-figuration’, and painting. From challenging the status-quo of the paintbrush, to questioning the bi-dimensionality of the canvas as a surface, these artists make us ponder age-old art historical questions of light, time, and landscape through unexpected means.
This exhibition aims particularly at promoting the work of young and emerging Italian artists abroad, by creating a dialogue between them and some of the most thought-provoking international contemporary artists working in London in the field of non-figuration.


Rebecca Salter was elected Royal Academician in 2014 and Keeper of the Schools of the Royal Academy in 2017. She has been an artist in residence at the Anni Albers Foundation, Connecticut. In 2011, Salter had a major retrospective at the Yale Center for British Art: into the light of things 1981-2010.

Paul Kneale’s work will be included in the forthcoming exhibition Peindre la Nuit at Centre Pompidou Metz (opening October 2018). Some of his scanner paintings and sculptures were recently on show at the Rubell Family Collection and at the prestigious Thetis Gardens in the Arsenale Novissimo (Venice), in a group exhibition on view during La Biennale di Venezia 57°.

Serena Vestrucci widely exhibited in Italy, winning the Premio Cairo in 2017. This would be her first exhibition in the United Kingdom.

Bea Bonafini graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2016 and in 2017 was featured in the Zabludowicz Collection Invites, a solo show of the artist in this leading London Institution.
