This event is related to the sections: Exhibitions

Works 1965-2021

The Public Gardens of Cagliari from November 26 will be enriched with a new interesting installation.
 
The Department of Culture and Entertainment of the Municipality of Cagliari and the Civic Museums present to the public a new installation made by the Sardinian artist Giovanni Campus and entitled Time in process
Made in 2018, it looks like a sort of big "L", consisting of a metal structure forged by the master carpenters of the Fratelli Argiolas Company, sponsor of the work with Sardegna Marmi di Orosei, to whom we owe the biancone marble of Orosei.
 
The important environmental sculpture, donated by the artist, has been strategically placed on the border between the Gardens and the view towards the urban landscape to seal the deep connection between art and its ability to communicate with the surrounding space.
 
The exhibition, entitled Time in process. Works 1965-2021 curated by Marco Meneguzzo, will be host in the upper floor of the Municipal Art Gallery. A selection of nineteen paintings that cover a wide chronological span of the artistic production of Campus that starting from the sixties until today, explain the research process that the artist has carried out through space and time,the last understood as existential time.
 
The exhibition at the Municipal Gallery is completed and enriched by the little-exhibition of the artist's works at the "Mario Mameli" airport of Cagliari Elmas, which will give to tourists but also to many Sardinians the opportunity to discover a preview of what they will find inside the Museum.
 
 
Biography
 
Giovanni Campus (Olbia, 1929), painter and sculptor, lives and works in Milan.
Over his more than fifty years of activity, he has addressed internal-external dialectics, geometrical space, and organic reality, up to confronting himself with the environment through site-specific installations (Palazzo Reale in Milan, the Gallura Coast, Carbonia, School of Business, Juridical, and Political Sciences in Cagliari).
Campus has often pursued dialogue between painting and sculpture relying on multiple materials, such as paper, cardboard, canvas, acrylic resins, graphite, neon tubes, concrete, steel, and wood.
