Contemporary artArt Exhibitions in BolognaMilan Vagač, Black Box
On Thursday 6th April 2023, LABS Contemporary Art is pleased to present Black Box, solo exhibition of Slovak artist Milan Vagač. The exhibition presents a selection of previously unseen works, born out of the reflection on the relationship between man and technology.
In contemporary aesthetics, the spectator is more and more fascinated by the seductive surface of the device, never questioning its internal mechanisms.
Vagač’s such things, packed beneath the plastic cover of the apparatus, remain inaccessible to the ordinary user, since they are hidden in black boxes.
The series Gizmo, term which is normally used for a device or machine which performs a particular task, usually in a new and efficient way, but of which one does not know the true name, is a clear reference to the concept of “black blox”. The artist, through the medium of painting, realizes illusory surfaces of abstract devices, showing hidden layers and mechanisms. The spectator cannot help but being fascinated by the painting structure thanks to the canvases transparency and to the anatomy of the wooden frame.
The exhibition is accompanied by a text by Domenico de Chirico LABS Contemporary Art
