Time will tell

LipanjePuntin artecontemporanea is pleased to announce Carlo Bach's new project:  Time will tell, a solo exhibition curated by Marco Puntin.

Old photographs, objets retrouvés, walls ruined and consumed just by the passing of time, sand flowing out of old objects, these are some of the inspirational  elements of his artworks. A very personal interpretation of the concept of time according to Carlo Bach.
Time and consequently memory are fundamental elements in Bach's research while old objects represent the means through which it is possible to unveal at least some of the mysteries hidden by the past.

Dealing with themes such as game and childhood as a starting point for his research Bach has chosen sand as his favourite material to work with. Together with old photographs, prints or pieces of furniture, sand has the power to evoke those memories that otherwise would have been lost with the passing of time.

In the end, recollecting memories becomes a way for interpreting our own times and for reconsidering our approach to the world.

A symbolic old wooden door, losing sand from its keyhole, to be opened on a world of memories is central element to a site specific installation that will be displayed on the occasion of his solo show at LipanjePuntin artecontemporanea.

Carlo Bach was born in Cologne (Germany) in 1967. Since 1999 he has been working for Illy Company, first curating its artistic projects and then as its artistic director (2006).
