Derivations | Silvia Hell

SUTURA opens the exhibition program of its second year of activity with Derivazioni (derivations), an exhibition by the artist Silvia Hell, curated by qwatz – contemporary art platform. Founded by Virginia Moniaci, SUTURA is a new space for contemporary art that investigates the relationship between culture, health and well-being.

The new project proposed by SUTURA introduces the research of the artist Silvia Hell by presenting some nuclei of her production: VOLUMES, A FORM OF HISTORY, AIR

The artist takes into consideration different disciplines that constitute some tools of knowledge of the world: from philosophy to science, from mathematics to geometry, from literature to aesthetics. His works interpret and formalize the tension that exists between the data that presume to objectively represent reality and the visions that these same can generate if observed from other points of view. Silvia Hell processes data into forms: she creates volumes, size relationships, develops proportions, generates sound and light impulses to hypothesize their movement. Shapes, proportions and rhythm therefore become the key to access the perceptive possibilities and emotional scanning that become part of the sensitive and intellectual knowledge of the world.

As happened in previous exhibitions, also on this occasion the artist was invited to create a series of multiples starting from the historical photographs of the IFT: Silvia Hell creates a limited edition which becomes part of the special SUTURA project. The artists rework the images with different materials and interventions from time to time, creating works in limited editions: a creative process which, exhibition after exhibition, will form the core of the space’s permanent collection.

The exhibition project is completed by the work that Silvia Hell will carry out in the three months in which the works will be exhibited by SUTURA: the artist will discuss with the doctors of the Istituto Fisicoterapico Torino (IFT), the patients and the public to formulate hypotheses, collect and analyze data, in order to produce a new work that derives from this comparison. The exhibition therefore becomes an opportunity to be involved in the creative process and in the form of its result.

Silvia Hell
The work of Silvia Hell (Bolzano 1983) takes the form of sculpture, photography, site-specific installations, digital processes and interdisciplinary projects. After studying painting at the Brera Academy in Milan, her research develops starting from the observation of conventional objectivity until reaching original models of presentation and formalization of reality.

Her interest lies in the analysis and processing of different languages, information and public data.

In 2011  she is active with the “Cose Cosmiche” project. Her work has been presented in numerous exhibitions and events including: MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts, Rome (2022); Trevi Center – Trevilab, Bolzano (2022); Galleria Milano, Milan (2022); Studio Tommaseo, Trieste (2022); Civic Gallery of Bressanone (2022); Kunstraum Munich (2021); Triennale, Milan (2020); FuturDome, Milan (2020).
