Galleria Continua is delighted to welcome to San Gimignano one of the most prominent artists of the modern Latin American artistic panorama, Jorge Macchi

The solo show, “Suspension Points”, presents a series of works that weave together cinema, musical, literary and art history references with the dreamlike, the accidental, and with tragedy and humour: sculptures, paintings, watercolours, installations and two works born of a new collaboration between Macchi and Edgardo Rudnitzky, Argentinian musician and composer. Jorge Macchi’s poetics of suspension goes beyond the limits of the frame. “Suspension Points” takes its name from a diptych in which the dots which form the image appear to disperse upon reaching the edges of the paper. Artist work is an invitation to reconsider the relationship between the objects of the world, it recreates the conditions of a parallel reality which undercuts our certainties and our consciousness. The installation “La noche de los museos”, occupying the parterre of the ex-cinema and theatre space, is no exception. This work invites the spectator to reflect on the meaning of one of the main questions in Macchi’s work: the materialising power of light. Moreover Laura Hakel, curator of the show, underlines, this installation creates a contradiction between the present and the past of an action, the ambiguous evanescence of an image and the presence of the viewer.The artist’s works are to be found in important collections such as those of MoMA in New York, MUSAC (the Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla and León), the Tate Modern in London, Centro Galego de Arte Contemporáneo (CGAC) in Santiago de Compostela, Fundación Arco in Spain, MUHKA in Antwerp, SMAK in Ghent, Belgium, Museo d’Arte Contemporanea of Rosario in Argentina and Fundación Banco de la Nación Argentina in Buenos Aires.
