Opening: June the second 2018, 6 p.m.
iSculpture Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Nu shu” by Alessandro Cardinale, which will be held in our venue in San Gimignano.
“This series of works bears the name of a secret female code which dates back to Imperial China, borrowing its spirit, poetics and yearning for freedom. The Nu Shu, invented by women with no formal education, aimed to strengthen the sense of sisterhood between those subjected to abuse and unbearable subordination.”
The exhibition catalogue will be available for the opening on Saturday June, the second at 6 p.m..

La monumentale opera “White Connections” dell’artista Rudy Pulcinelli è entrata a far parte della collezione permanente del museo Baimamedo Tibetan Art Center di Pechino, all’interno del famoso distretto artistico 798 Art zone, il più grande centro di arte contemporanea della Cina ed e uno dei più importanti al mondo. L’opera, inaugurata il 27 marzo a Pechino con un grande evento, ha il prestigioso patrocinio dell’Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Pechino. Il titolo “White connections” trae ispirazione dall’alfabeto tibetano, dal bianco, uno dei colori fondamentali per il Buddismo, e dalle bandiere di preghiera Lung-Ta che sventolano anche sui valichi di montagna come simboli della diffusione della pace.
The Italian artist Rudy Pulcinelli creates a permanent installation at Baimamedo Tibetan Art Centre in Beijing 798 Art District. The site specific installation “White Connections” is composed of an accumulation of Tibetan letters, about 375 pieces. The artwork developed on three levels, a structure on the wall and two piles of letters on the ground, that reminds of Mani stones. The material used is iron laser cut and powder coated.
In “White Connections” Rudy Pulcinelli focuses on three important elements: the Tibetan calligraphy that is especially created for meditation; the Lung-ta prayer flag; the importance of white in the Tibetan culture, color that represent knowledge and education. The event curated by Umberto Brugni has received patronage from the Italian Institute of Culture in Beijing.
