AlbumArte | Via Flaminia 122, Roma


On Tuesday, December 6th, AlbumArte will inaugurate the first Rome exhibition by Sabrina Casadei (Rome, 1985), marking the second appointment with the cycle Residenze,  a project by Cristina Cobianchi, showing artworks that have been exclusively produced during artist-in-residence programmes and that will be presented in Italy for the first time, in the exhibition spaces of Via Flaminia.

The first appointment of the project Residenze (AlbumArte October 11 | November 26, 2016) presented the works realized by Flavio Favelli and Gianni Politi during their artist residencies produced by AlbumArte in 2014, in Istanbul and Prague, respectively. While Favelli and Politi’s exhibition put and accent on the influence of the residency practice on the way of working of the two artists – who have indeed produced pieces that are very different from the rest of their work -, Residenze #2 Sabrina Casadei A thousand Miles Away, curated by Paola Ugolini, offers a completely different subject for reflection; in the landscapes and paintings of her host country, Norway, the young artist have found a clear and definite confirmation of the reasons for her way of working.

Casadei will present paintings realized in early 2016, during her artist residency at the Nordic Artists’s Centre Dale, one of the most important artist-in-residence program in Europe, founded by the Norwegian Ministry of Culture and located in Dale, a village in the Fjaler municipality, along the west coast of Norway. Here, the artist has found landscapes and colors she had always kept in her unconscious without ever seeing them, thus finally recognizing what she’ve been depicting forever. The colors of her works and the movement of her brush strokes, in fact, found their perfect location in the Norwegian Fjords landscape.
