TUTTO.LEONARDO - Mariangela Levita

TUTTO.LEONARDO is an installation conceived by the Italian artist Mariangela Levita and curated by Adriana Rispoli for the Italian Cultural Institute in Stockholm with the aim of celebrating in a contemporary key the boundless genius of Leonardo da Vinci, 500 years after his death.

Starting from the recognition of the genius and versatility of two masters of Italian - and world history - Leonardo da Vinci and Giò Ponti - the artist transfigures their precepts regarding the use of colour and light in a visual synthesis that involves both the facade of the historic building that transversal media such as music and video. Mariangela Levita transforms the more than 100 windows/diaphragms - iconic of the building’s façade - into “colour screens” by adopting the Leonardo principle that art and science are one. Using the 6 simple colours: “The white we will see for the light without which no colour can be seen, and yellow for the earth, green for water, blue for air, and red for fire, and the black for the darkness”.

TUTTO.Leonardo is a rhythmic composition declined to the dialogue of the colours as a whole: every single window acts as a vision and monochrome filter on the surrounding external and internal space of the building, designed by Giò Ponti exactly sixty one years ago.

"TUTTO.Leonardo" is realized thanks to a collaboration between the Institute and the Embassy of Italy in Sweden as part of the integrated promotion plan "VivereALL'Italiana".

 

Mariangela Levita (Aversa 1972), Mariangela Levita (Aversa 1972), lives and works between Naples and London. Mariangela Levita graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples in 1994. Levita focuses her attention on the textual organization of the aesthetic operation, with the clear intention of creating a context in which to generate an image alphabet: line, color, not light color. Thanks to an over linguistic research, the works of Levita aim to create an empathic relationship with the public, to stimulate visual perception without following a figurative and narrational logic. His alphabet of signs combines only apparently opposed elements: ancient forms translate into contemporary patterns, the uniqueness of pictorial intervention turns into graphic seriality. The artist has exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in Italy and abroad including Museo Pecci (Prato), Museo MADRE (Napoli), SAM Select (Colonia), Castello Di Rivalta (Torino), SPSI Art Museum (Shanghai), Galleria Comunale (Monfalcone), Voice Gallery (Marrakech), FAMA Gallery (Verona). He has made several permanent public works including: Uno Sguardo Sospeso (Padiglione Palermo, Cardarelli Hospital, Napoli 2007), Self-Definition (Linea 6 Stazione Metropolitana di Mergellina, Napoli 2008), Geometrical Sequence In Colour (Ponte Don Bosco, Napoli 2009), Flag Down (Casa dei Cristallini, Napoli 2012), WeTransfer / Solaris (Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amistà, Verona 2014 / 2015), Sette Opere per la Misericordia in dialogo con Caravaggio (Pinacoteca Pio Monte della Misericordia, Napoli 2014).
