Fine Art print on paper, MDF
100 × 70 cm
The RGB series is born from scanning a piece of canvas moved and folded in front of a scanner light in a series of movements within the time of its own motion. The result is a stratigraphy, the recording in the form of visual code of the tactile memory of the pictorial support.
Remove the top of the scanner.
You got a space: the plate of the scanner and a time: the passage of light, which you can calibrate to your liking.
Improvise, work on the movements and folds that you can imprint on the canvas or fabric.
Consider the scanner glass as the threshold of contact between two tangent and reversible viewpoints.
Experiment with the relationship between movement and its translation into image.Think of the flatness and flexibility of the material as a possibility to work with the fold, an intuitive and immediate gesture to constitute a form, and consequently a space.
When the light has finished its passage, the session will be over.
If you want to start again and continue the work in a new session, it does not necessarily end at the first scan.
Print the image(s) on paper.
Optional: mount the photo on MDF (100 x 70 x 2 cm), previously perforated (diameter 10 mm depth 5 mm) on the top of the back, in two places, to set it up on the wall.
– Scanner (A3-A4)
– Image processing software
– Printer (colour, A3 printing)
– Paper for printing (the choice of paper weight and paper type will determine the printing result)
– Painting canvas not used, if not, you can think of an alternative: use a light colored fabric without any decoration, the simplest or rougher you can find; the size should be equal or greater than the size of the scanner plane.
– Optional: MDF (100 x 70 x 2 cm)
Sara Enrico (1979) lives in Turin.
Her interest revolves around the concept of weave as weaving able to activate relationships, observing the relationship between body, dress and space starting from a reinterpretation of certain pictorial paradigms, and experimentation with textile and industrial materials through manual and digital processes. As a physical and linguistic system, her work interprets reality through the experience of “tactile proximity”. Her works have been presented in Italy and abroad and are within: Národní galerie Praha, Prague; Mart, Museo d’arte moderna e contemporanea di Trento e Rovereto; Quartz Studio, Turin; Brooklyn Army Terminal, New York; Centrale Fies Art Work Space, Dro; Marsèlleria, New York; PAV Parco Arte Vivente, Turin; TILE project space, Milan; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Les Instants Chavirés, Montreuil (Paris); Fondazione Antonio Ratti, Como; and Galleria d’arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino. He took part in OFF Biennale Cairo, Cairo, 2018 and the Biennale Internazionale Arte in Memoria, Synagogue, Archaeological Park of Ostia Antica, Ostia (Rome), 2017.
Sara Enrico is among the winners of the 4th edition of Italian Council (2018), and in 2017 of the New York Award.
