Saturday 21st May 2022at 18, SCD STUDIO opens in the gallery spaces of Perugiavia Bramante 22N, the third exhibition project dedicated to the relationship between word and fiber art with the exhibition of ARMADILLYstage name of Camilla Cesarini, Trust me, I’m a liaredited by Gemma Gulisano.
On display is a selection of works by the Pesaro artist – some unpublished – who through a pink pop language tells a bored generation filtered by images posted on social media.
In Armadilly’s contemporaneity, the relationship with one’s own body in front of a mirror and before the gaze of others becomes complicated in relation to the photographic showcase of the social network: Instagram and his galleryin particular, they constitute that business card that society imposes.
Perugia, Trust me, I’m a liar, the pop tapestry exhibition
They are social dynamics perfectly described with marked irony and extreme effectiveness in his tapestries, embroidered cartoons that give life to a singular union between language pop, enriched with a taste kitsch and contents social associated with culture trash.
They are works “daughters of their time”, textile mirrors that reveal to the observer common behaviors that are sometimes unconscious conditioned by a culture of rampant hyper-connectedness or the relational dynamics of a generation that that same culture nourishes every day.
The magnetic force of the Armadilly tapestries lies in the awareness of that individualism that leads to social disintegration, the desire for pleasure at all costs, the aesthetic and behavioral canons administered by influencer on social.
The exhibition will remain open until June 5, 2022.
