GALLERIA LOPPIS OPENLABÂ presenta
personale di Enrico Ingenito
12 giugno â€“ 1 agosto 2015
a cura di Alessandro Chiodo e Elena Saccardi,Â testo in catalogo di Martina Martinez
LOPPIS OPENLAB Galleria Ã¨ lieta di annunciare Color Regio, la prima personale di Enrico Ingenito nella galleria di Parma. Lâ€™artista genovese presenta una nuova serie di olii su tela, dove i protagonisti sonoÂ il colore e lâ€™immagine che si contendono lo sguardo dello spettatore, scandendo quella dimensione temporale che solitamente appartiene ad una immagine filmica ma che qui, come dâ€™incanto, si traduce in unâ€™immagine pittorica.
Questo svelamento non immediato del paesaggio rimanda agli sviluppi fotografici dâ€™un tempo dove lâ€™immagine fotografica immersa negli acidi affiorava lentamente, regalandoci quello stupore della scoperta, quella esclamazione di sorpresa che ci fa sentire un poâ€™ bambini.
Come un viaggiatore nello spazio che indaga i colori dei pianeti, Enrico riporta sulla terra le sue emozioni, le sue scoperte, il racconto di quel momento, una passeggiata nel tempo, un istante catturato e trasformato in pittura.
Dapprima siamo pervasi dallâ€™energia del colore che furioso cavalca lâ€™onda dellâ€™emozione, ma poi non meno efficace arriva il tema, questa â€œimpressioneâ€ di ciÃ² che Ã¨ stato catturato dagli occhi ma anche dallâ€™obiettivo di Enrico.
Dentro Parma il mondo, Parigi, Berlino, Veneziaâ€¦ La mostra racchiude in sÃ© un luogo altro, una pittografia del paesaggio, quasi a descrivere lâ€™impossibilitÃ nellâ€™identificare il luogo, cosÃ¬ il Parco Ducale che conosciamo bene ci sfugge, brulicante di luci al calar della sera, ci coinvolge e ci accompagna come in una melodia fino al quadro successivo: â€œUn istante dopoâ€. Regio omaggio alla cittÃ e alle sue sfumature, ai suoi colori che per una volta non saranno piÃ¹ solo il giallo e blu.
â€œPaesaggi che urlano di colore.Â CittÃ immerse in un cromatismo infinito, fatto di rossi accesi e purissimi, malinconici viola e luminosi gialli. Nei quadri dellâ€™artista genovese il colore e i paesaggi sâ€™incontrano e si mescolano, creando un innovativo connubio artistico che ci regala delle istantanee sorprendenti. Il titolo dellâ€™esposizione riassume etimologicamente il lavoro di Ingenito: lâ€™artista utilizza il â€œColoreâ€ per far vibrare i paesaggi, rendendolo protagonista indiscusso delle tele. â€œRegioâ€ Ã¨ invece il termine latino che contraddistingue le regioni dei pianeti per il diverso colore della superficie, ma soprattutto lâ€™omaggio a Parma e al suo Teatro che ben rappresenta lâ€™incantevole cittÃ [â€¦]â€œÂ (tratto dal testoÂ Un viaggio viraggioÂ di M. Martinez).
Enrico IngenitoÂ (Genova, 1978)
Si diploma in pittura allâ€™Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna e termina gli studi specializzandosi in Arti visive e Discipline dello spettacolo presso lâ€™Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti di Genova. Dal 2005 svolge la propria attivitÃ artistica esponendo in mostre personali e collettive in Italia e allâ€™estero e partecipando con progetti site specific su invito a residenze dâ€™artista in Francia, Grecia e Lituania.
Conrad Roset and GuimÂ TiÃ² Zarraluki – VAN CONIGUIM
Guim TiÃ² Zarraluki and Conrad Roset
April 11th â€“ June 6th 2015
Curated by Alessandro Chiodo and Elena Saccardi
Text by Matteo Bondioli
Van Coniguim (Van Conrad y Guim) is an expression that could make you think of an ancient
Dutch noble dynasty but instead it simply means â€Conrad and Guim are goingâ€, they are moving, exploring, they travel and then finally they return.
This is because Gium and Conrad leave together in a van filled with canvases and colors. The van glides down roads like a brush on canvas. In this way it draws an imaginary line that links
Barcelona, Marseille, Nice, Genoa until it reaches the heart of the Italian Region, Emilia Romagna: Parma. They are travelling companions who want to show their work through a duo/solo exhibition organized by â€œLoppis OpenLabâ€. The Gallery celebrates the two artists that create a great 4 handed common work (but itâ€™s certainly not common) , just like Renoir and Monet once did.
It is important to note that the two artists not only share the road but also the canvas, their styles overlap and become the expression of an important artistic meeting after having waited 10 years.
The personal qualities of these soul mates combined together create a new picture that belongs to neither Guim TiÃ² Zarraluki, the painter, nor to Conrad Roset, the illustrator; the result is pure
emotion that contains the creative effort that allows this new collaboration to come to light.
Their models come from that â€œno placeâ€ that is the web. After just one open call, real people
turned up ready to pose the next day in the artistâ€™s atelier in Barcelona.
These people, practically unknown, were explored in detail – their faces, their facial features, their eyes. The virtual friendship became real.
But now to the best part! These people who have now become real are thrown into another
abstract dimension, which is not the virtual web dimension, but the poetic dimension of the
Itâ€™s their eyes that capture us, their clear gestures in the untouchable and living instant of the
painting. We can discretely follow their inner selves.
Before this ecstatic truth our feelings emerge, our feelings that normally are buried under so many layers: the social environment, the virtual identity, your official identity, the spoken language, the way you dress, gender, religion. We are starting to long for this intimacy and remember that life is made of details, glances and caresses, meeting people just by chance, real life.
To Guim and Conrad what really matters are the emotions, the ones with a capital â€œEâ€. They are
here together, travelers that lend us their eyes that look upon the world and ways of life. They
share the energy that is created when people meet, when they touch, like electric charges that are generated when you are side by side. For this reason the only advice is: come to Parma and be sure to meet with these two great artistsâ€¦you will not regret it.
Guim TiÃ² Zarraluki (1987)
He studied at the school SÃ¹nion di Barcellona and developed a very personal artistic research.

Luca Pedrelli Skawalker – FATTO A PEZZI
29/11/2014 – 07/01/2015
Fatto a Pezzi (Pick up the pieces)
a cura di Elisa Maestri, Alessandro Chiodo
Loppis Gallery presents PICK UP THE PIECES the new exhibition project designed by Skawalker specifically for the gallery space. It will be an articulated story what will appear on the walls, his history. Fragments of an animated world will join each other giving life to pieces, the essence of the show. Pick up the pieces!
There is a line of continuity at the center, the key approach to avoid mistakes and remain trapped. A line of continuity around which a myriad of characters of all shapes and sizes moves by showing the steps. Agitated, colorful, alive. A pieces. Each figure is linked to the other to make sense of it all.
“Luca Pedrelli / Skawalker image search an autonomous world, parallel to the real one, but no less alive and coherent. It is a pictorial world seeming naivete; conscious, much more humorously dramatic than it seems. It is a figurative world ironic, alarmed, swarming.”
Text taken from Francesco Porzio.

Sometimes it happens, a precious ring worn because is nice, at the end of the day leaves its mark on the skin; an elegant bra almost pinches when the time comes to remove it. Mark the body by imagining the shape and the fabric with which it is made, imagine doing it with style figure brought the suit. Hangs in the air a gothic note , wanted a reminder to the personality of Scout Pare–Phillips. The body is naked, but it is not true. Fragments of the most intense color are locked inside the framing focused on a close-up that reveals imperfections common to all of us and for this wonderfully funny and graceful. Skin is worn everyday that you see as if in those lines redder there was written the story of the day just passed. Skin is all that makes us feel human. It ‘a tattoo passenger with whom we feel just people with their own daily memory.

Lin Zhipeng N.223
Loppis Gallery is pleased to announce
Lin Zhipeng Solo exhibition
Curated by Elisa Maestri and Alessandro Chiodo
Opening Saturday, @ Loppis galleria – May 17, 2014 h.17:00 Via La Spezia 90, Parma
Loppis Gallery and Super Error present for the first time in Italy N. 223 Lin Zhipeng Solo Exhibition. After the success of the last exhibitions of international artists like Sayaka Ganz and Guim Tio Zarraluki , Loppis gallery continues to show in the city of Parma foreign artists that have never been exhibited in Italy . This time it’s Lin Zhipeng, a Chinese photographer censored in his own country and known throughout the world as 223.
Lin Zhipeng presents Lin Zhipeng . The 72 photographs in the exhibition were chosen specifically for the Loppis Gallery, fragments of real life reveal a beauty instantaneous and immediate as can be the simple moments of his everyday life. Love , food , parties , sex , friends, lovers, interior and exterior , man and nature. A story in pictures that invades the space of the gallery , creating a unique play, thus confirming Loppis Gallery as ever evolving to meet the needs of the artists that it hosts.
For the occasion the artist will be present and a new Super Error publication in limited edition will be releaseed: ” New Real Zine”, dedicated to Lin Zhipeng.
Is photographer Lin Zhipeng , who comes from afar and carries with him his current history. It’s called 223 , as he in art . A whole that is strength.
223 goes fast , hits and clicks , selects and portrays.He freezes the world in an instant, born perhaps by accident. Or maybe not . But no matter , there will be plenty to amuse us in every way.
And ‘ his story is 223 . It’s his party. It’s the misunderstanding that counts. A sly mockery to understand the value of the idea behind that particular photograph.
The body is naked , skin winks, the drops fall , faces speak , the man rubs the man and a pig enjoys over an obstacle road . Simple, that’s life.
The questions do not need answers. 223 fills the space , just look to listen to what it means.

Guim Tio Zarraluki – GRIS
LOPPIS is proud to announce for the firstÂ time in Italy GUIM TIO ZARRALUKI.
Gris is the new show that Loppis Gallery presents to the city. It‘s a new Solo Exhibition of the Spanish artist Guim Tio that, for the exclusive Italian presentation, decided to propose an artist’s project tailor-made for the exhibition space. In a fortnight, hosted by the gallery, the Spanish artist will prepare a new job being in direct contact with the city and with the gallery itself. It will come up with an artist’s studio in which Guim will create. With this idea, Loppis Gallery want to begin to follow its artists, representing them and presenting them as precious and important elements of its philosophy exhibition.
Tears are marked as colored marks on the face of a beauty reborn to new life. Its a romantic game Gris that leaves no one indifferent. Collects an underlying melancholy from which we are drawn. Picture strong, fascinating faces even in their loneliness obliged. Gris from Guim Tio grabs something within us, drags him up to the finest thought and turns it into focus. Those faces do not pass it as if nothing happened. They say things. Those tears speak. As if there was a light music in the background, everything seems to make sense.
