On the occasion of Arte Fiera 2020, Renata Fabbri proposes a solo show of the Georgian artist Sophie Ko. The project includes unpublished works from the artist’s famous series Geografie Temporali. As the title suggests, these artworks are the exemplification of something eternally suspended between creation and disruption. The image generates and regenerates itself through the slow but inevitable collapse of the matter.
Created through a conceptual and formal negotiation between sculpture and painting, the artworks of Sophie Ko are made as a poignant metaphor of the impermanence and volatility of the subject. Solid blocks of pigment rise majestically to create a series of compositions that are inanimate in their abstraction but alive in their unstoppable becoming. These works recall the echo of a landscape, the image of a landslide with its own temporality.
