Artevisione 2015

The second edition of ArteVisione focuses on the theme announced by the UN General Assembly for 2015: light and light-based technologies, considering its many facets and implications in terms of science, culture and society – from the field of telecommunications to the medical, energy or environmental industry. ArteVisione presents itself in a renewed form through a nationwide call for entries and introduces a jury of experts to evaluate the projects.

The call for entries, addressed to artists under 35, supports the production of a video work by providing all the necessary tools for it and a workspace at the FDV Residency Programme – an artist residency programme at the Fabbrica del Vapore in Milan. Besides the first prize winner Luca Trevisani, the 2015 edition also awards Fatima Bianchi, Anna Franceschini and Diego Marcon with a special edition of Sky Arte to give space to the investigation of their research.

Sky Italia is an Italian media company and subsidiary of Sky plc. Founded in 2003, its customer list has grown very rapidly with 4,7 million families subscribed in September 2014. Sky currently offers more than 170 theme and pay-per-view channels, with a wide offer of films, sports, news, entertainment, and children programmes. Sky is the first Italian television to broadcast HD and Live 3D programmes and offers over 60 channels in High Definition and a channel entirely dedicated to 3D programmes. Furthermore, thanks to My Sky HD you can easily record your favourite programmes and access the Sky On Demand service. And with Sky Go, you can also watch a wide selection of channels and on-demand streaming content.

ArteVisione is a project realised as part of Sky's Corporate Social Responsibility activities. An area born from the willingness to support concrete projects within the communities where Sky lives and works, addressed to the new generations who are the future of Italy. In doing so, Sky follows the same principles that have always guided its presence in the Italian cultural industry and have animated its commitment in favour of information pluralism, a television that is aware of the needs of the youngest, the valorization of cinema and the best expressions of Italian art and creativity. This is why the company puts its energies into initiatives capable of inspiring people, supporting sport programmes to improve lives, aware of the importance of sport in the lives of young people; promoting and enhancing art and creativity, and helping young Italian talents to emerge; committing itself to raising Media Literacy through a project dedicated to schools; devoting special attention to safeguarding the environment through the promotion of virtuous behaviour within it and using energy-efficient technologies. To be close to the little ones even in difficult times, Sky has equipped Italy's hospitals and main paediatric wards with packages specifically designed for them. And with the fundraising launched during major emergencies, it has supported initiatives capable of generating an immediate impact on the lives of the communities involved.

SKY ARTE HD is the first Italian television channel dedicated to Art in all its forms and it is visible to all Sky subscribers (who have HD in their subscription) on channels 120 and 400 of the platform. Painting, sculpture, architecture, music, literature, theatre, design, and all forms of artistic expression find space in a single programme schedule dedicated both to enthusiasts, who can deepen their interests, and to the merely curious audience who can approach art in a new way through the channel's major international productions (Sky Arts, BBC, Channel 4, Arte, PBS, Sundance Channel) and original productions. With a contemporary and never-didactic language, which finds its narrative key in the contamination of genres, Sky Arte HD recounts the infinite resources of the world's artistic heritage, with a special focus on the extraordinary Italian tradition and the talent of Italian artists. Sky Arte completed two years of programming, with 142 original productions, for a total of 429 episodes and more than 168 hours. In these two years, the channel has promoted and enhanced 45 cities in 17 regions and 200 different places of artistic interest, over 100 cultural events, and more than 100 Italian artists. And through the Art Calendar it has given space to more than 3,500 cultural events throughout Italy.

Luca Trevisani

Trevisani (Verona, 1979) articulates his research between sculpture and films, performing arts, graphics, design, research cinema, and architecture. Instability is a pivotal element of the work, a changing state of development that expands and contracts by widening the boundaries between the elements of the work and its surroundings. In his installations, the historical characteristics of sculpture are questioned and subverted. When he works with moving images he constructs narratives of great visual power, in which different language formats and codes coexist. “They have said that films are my most successful sculptures,” says Trevisani. “In sculptures and films, I apply the same logic, the laws of montage structure the material that makes up the objects I create. If in sculptures I am interested in the flow of time giving life to the material, making it change, it is the moving image that allows me to present this flow of events, being able to interpret it and to use it”.

He took part in awards and exhibitions in the main art centres and museums, including the Marino Marini Museum in Florence (2014), the MAXXI in Rome (2012), the Macro in Rome (2010), the Haus am Waldsee in Berlin (2012), the Magasin in Grenoble (2011), the Mart in Rovereto (2011), the Biennale of Architecture in Venice (2008- 2010), the Manifesta7 (2008), the Museion in Bolzano (2008), the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo (2007), the Daimler Kunstsammlung in Berlin (2011), the CCA Antratx Mallorca (2011), the Giò Marconi in Milan (2008), the Pinksummer in Genoa (2006-2009), the MAMbo in Bologna (2009), the Mehdi Chouakri in Berlin (2008-2011), the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin (2008).

Luca Trevisani replies with “Il Cerchio” (2015) to the theme of the 2015 call for entries ArteVisione – inspired by the year dedicated to light and light-based technologies proclaimed by the UN General Assembly. It is a piece of work in homage to the modernist architecture of Villa Girasole, situated in Marcellise in the province of Verona, and its special connection with the sun. From this project, and through the involvement of the choreographer Michele di Stefano, winner of the Silver Lion of 2014 Venice Dance Biennale, Trevisani proposes an intense research on the human condition and the dialogic and specular relation between light and time. The author seems to suggest that the man needs to lose himself in the boundless unconscious to find again his original essence. From that timeless space, submerged in darkness, Villa Girasole itself seems to emerge. The darkness, the waiting, the awakening, the elements of a fascinating narrative. The construction was created to make a slow but constant 360° rotation on its axis following the sun's movements, becoming the metaphor of an extraordinary relation between micro and macro, a part and the whole.
