GRAFO Gallery is pleased to announce Cascione & Lusciov’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Entitled Intergalactic Space, the exhibition collects the two years of sculptural work.

 

The title of the exhibition, Halos of Light in Dark Matter is inspired by the phenomenon of dark matter halos of light in the depths of the Universe. The artists want to recreate the atmosphere of Dark Matter from the space abyss where the only irradiating light is that of the sculptures, fragments of stars that dance in the perennial orbits of distant galaxies.

The exhibition preparation is essential but at the same time audacious and fully translates the sense of an intergalactic space. Visitors are invited to follow the predetermined path that leads them through the different exhibition halls. Each of these presents a work in the center of the space, where users revolve around the sculpture as the planets do around their own sun, creating for each environment small galaxies made of matter and people.
The void is the other element that distinguishes the exhibition space, in particular the one that marks the distance between the sculptures and the walls of the exhibition rooms, similar to the spatial void of Dark Matter.
Between a twinkle and the other, the mysteries of the Universe are unveiled: the birth of life, space and time, the speed of light and other cosmic phenomena.
Another peculiarity of the exhibition is characterized by the background music, it is the sound arrangement created with space audio recordings, collected on various spacecraft and mixed with sounds produced by the artists in the recording studio. The sound becomes a fundamental component to immerse the observer in an extrasensory dimension, the culmination of this experience is reached with the 'Blue Large-Amplitude Pulsator Star' Audio-Visual sculptural installation, where sculpture, sound, light and sensorial experience are mixed in total darkness.
