Michela Pelusio / Rose-Mari Torpo
opening Thursday 13.6, 17:00
Marea presents the works of Michela Pelusio and Rose-Mari Torpo, two international artists who have been drawn to Heraklion. Pelusio and Torpo have found themselves working adjacent to the sea in Heraklion for the past three years. The exhibition is, therefore, not only telling of the exchange between artist and sea but also of the come and go of artists from around the world, adding in their turn to the artistic life of the island.
Marea is not a delivery of seascapes in a traditional sense, but rather a living translation of the sea’s rhythms via the bodies of the artists and on to often surprising media. Breaking away from convention, replication of the visual aspect of the sea is done away with, in place for an interpretation of the sensorial and even the scientific aspect of wave in visual terms.
