First Skin is Ilaria Miotto's first solo exhibition, curated by Luca Reffo at SPUMA Space for the Arts - Venice - Giudecca.
This project launches the collaboration between the Venice Fine Arts Academy and Venice Art Factory with Contemporis ETS, in order to provide students at the conclusion of the Biennium of Painting with the opportunity to confront themselves with installation and curatorial practice.
The exhibition, also conceived as an ideal development of the thesis work, is the occasion for the presentation of the related publishing project. First Skin gathers together paintings, material from the artist's archives and development of the limited edition produced over several years of work around the process of the emergence of affective elements at the origin of memory.
Ilaria Miotto's research, starting from the theme of memory seen as a psychic function of mental representation, explores the boundaries of the imaginary geographies of sensations that anticipate and underlie every structure of thought and language.
The works in the exhibition follow one another as fragments, signs and relics to narrate the timeless conflict between matter and memory: the image appears to us on canvas thanks to a process of rewriting the ghosts that the author subtracts from the unconscious.
