Marra/Nosco gallery - Brussels

Press review

MARRA\NOSCO is pleased to present Roshambo, a dialogue between some of the most recent works by the Italian duo Perino & Vele (Emiliano Perino, b 1973 New York – Luca Vele, b 1975 Rotondi) and works especially made for the exhibition by the Brazilian artist Túlio Pinto (b 1974 Porto Alegre). Artists whom concede extraordinary importance to material, whose works shape apparently unstable structures or visually infinite vulnerability, but which order reveals solidity and rigor.

The exhibition Roshambo is a rebound reflection on the game driven tension exerted by the appearances of objects. In this space inhabited by fragility and hardness, the materiality of objects calls into question the limits of the stable. Roshambo refers to that childish game of hands in which the participants strive to guess and draw a winning strategy to defeat the rival. But it also deals with that immediate association that our gaze habitually establishes about the conscious value of elements of a different nature: rock – paper – scissors.

Roshambo will be the first “duo” show by Túlio Pinto and Perino & Vele, and will open the second exhibition of MARRA NOSCO Brussels, after the opening show The Little Thing That Counts that inaugurated the new space and brought together represented and newly signed artists, constituting a first testimony of what’s to come.
