Federico Seppi, Art Residency – London is Open, 01 Oct 2019 – 03 Nov 2019

Federico Seppi
Art Residency

Il 31 ottobre, presso la Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, e il 2 novembre in un appartamento privato a Chelsea, Art Apartments presenterà le opere dell’artista Federico Seppi, vincitore della Art Residency London is Open 2019.

Realizzato in collaborazione con il Finnish Institute di Londra e la Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, Art Residency – London is Open 2019 ha dato a Federico l’opportunità di vivere e lavorare a Londra per un mese a ottobre 2019.

Il progetto di Federico Seppi consiste nel creare un giardino composto da erba fiorita originaria di diversi paesi europei che rappresentino la resilienza del materiale multiculturale. La seconda parte del progetto è un’opera d’arte composta da lacrime che volano sul giardino e rami intrecciati di piante importate.

Per il terzo anno, il tema della residenza di Art Apartments è London is Open, ispirato alla campagna del sindaco di Londra Sadiq Khan per mantenere Londra aperta al resto del mondo. Ciò rimane particolarmente significativo con il Regno Unito ancora in trattative con l’UE prima della Brexit.

On 31st of October, at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, and on 2nd of November in a private flat in Chelsea, Art Apartments will present the works by the artist Federico Seppi, winner of our Art Residency London is Open 2019.

Realised in collaboration with the Finnish Institute in London and the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art, Art Residency – London is Open 2019 has given Federico the opportunity to live and work in London for one month in October 2019.

Federico Seppi’s project consists of creating a garden composed by flowered grass originally from different European countries representing the resiliency of the multicultural material. The second part of the project is an art work consisting of tears flying over the garden and intertwined branches of imported plants.

For the third year, the theme of Art Apartments’ residency is London is Open, inspired by London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s campaign to keep London open to the rest of the world. This remains particularly significant with the UK still in negotiations with the EU before Brexit.
