Nicola Bertolo, Nina Ćeranić, Eric Pasino, Andrea Samory

From 25 May to 8 July 2023

Candy Snake Gallery

Candy Snake Gallery presents Reverberating Things, group exhibition that brings together the works of four emerging artists of the new generation: Nicola Bertolo, Nina Ćeranić, Eric Pasino, Andrea Samory. The project develops around the idea of continuous reverberation of images, in an overlapping of physical dimension and digital world that makes the objects of our vision ever changing and elusive.

Nicola Bertolo (born in 1996 in Vicenza, lives and works in Venice).

Through a harmonious overlapping of pictorial frames, Nicola Bertolo's works tell of virtual characters, wandering products, expelled from their simulated space and left adrift in a real, desolate world, where the absence of time deprives of objectives and certainties who explores it.

Among the main exhibitions, he has exhibited at: Studio D'Arte Raffaelli (Trento), Gallerie Italienne (Paris), Spazio Murka (Florence), Galleria Tommaso Calabro (Milan), Cellar (Trento), Palazzo delle Contesse (Belluno).

Nina Ćeranić (born in Belgrade in 1992, lives and works in Venice).

The subjects of Nina Ćeranić's recent works are personal objects that have been used and sold on various online platforms, represented through a painting that wants to capture human presence and action in all its manifestations. Between familiarity and restlessness, different traces come together such as the imprint that the body leaves on the object over the years, the eye that captures a photograph, the painter who represents the object and, finally, the painting itself as an object capable of evoking sensory stimuli and connections in the viewer.

Among the main exhibitions, he has exhibited at: Monitor Gallery (Rome), AplusA Gallery (Venice), Tommaso Calabro Gallery (Milan), Galerie Italienne (Paris), Santa Maria della Scala Museum (Siena), Dolomiti Contemporanee (Cadore).

Eric Pasino (born in 1997 in Vercelli, lives and works between Venice and Biella).

Eric Pasino's research focuses on the relationship between object and observer and on the juxtaposition of familiarity and non-representation. In his works he aims to create a distance from the human to what is of human workmanship, like a distance in time that makes an object and its function unrecognizable while maintaining the link with its form. In painting this process translates into still lifes and compositions of objects created and never existed, stains and suggestions between the artificial and the organic, welds and sutures, objects transported from another time and impressions of presences.

Among the main exhibitions, he has exhibited at: Dr. Fake Cabinet (Turin), Lito Studio (Milan), Spazio CREA Cantieri del Contemporaneo (Venice), Antares Pavilion (Porto Marghera), Civica Galleria d'Arte Contemporanea Filippo Scroppo (Torre Pellice , Turin), Candiani Cultural Center (Mestre), Chengdu Biennial (China), Palazzo Borgata (Rocca Grimalda, Alessandria), Palazzo Barolo (Turin), Palazzetto Tito (Venice), Museum of Urban Art (Turin).

Andrea Samory (born in 1991 in Padua, lives and works in Tokyo, Japan).

Andrea Samory's practice is based on a post-internet vision of art as a process of materialization of virtual images and intangible forces. In his works he focuses on the biological body in relation to the stereotypical concept of nature and on how familiar images, when freed from their idealized context, can become a mirror for collective anxieties and expectations towards the future. The artist combines sculpture and 3D printing with other experimental techniques on materials, to draw the viewer into a world of natural corruption and unease, provoking ambivalent feelings of repulsion and fascination, alienation and recognition.

Among the main exhibitions, he has exhibited at: Dimora Artica (Milan), Edicola Radetzky (Milan), Lixil Gallery (Tokyo), Songshan Culture Park (Taipei).
