"Georitmie" is the title of the first solo exhibition and live performance, by the artist Mona Lisa Tina, which will take place at the opening on Friday, August 6th.


Mona Lisa Tina, born 1977, is a visual artist and art therapist. She gives special attention to the research of the medium of performance, which she expresses with strong pathos intensity and symbolic actions. At the same time, her own body is a place of continuous emotional and physical processes. In her performances the willingness to approach the spectator with empathy plays a significant role. In this process of transference of feelings, the intention is to invite the audience to re-appropriate one's own personality and identity.

As the curator of the exhibition Livia Savorelli points out, "supporter of the universality of the transversal language of art, which can overcome any barrier - cultural, geographical or gender - Mona Lisa Tina, through her silent listening, her enormous capacity to enter empathy, to grasp emotions and to "read" pain in the broadest sense of the word, invites us to find new ways of encountering the Next. It is an inclusive approach that uses the language of art to underscore a constructive intent, an aspiration to a "better world" that we all so desperately need. "

Starting from the work Nero (2020), the exhibition presents the photographic works of Mona Lisa Tina from the series Primario, a cycle entirely dedicated to the primal power of primary colours – its symbolic meaning is hidden while emphasizing its therapeutic properties. Mona Lisa Tina makes the analysed colour the protagonist of the respective series (red, white, blue, yellow). Colour is the only element of connection between the artist’s body and the natural environment. It thus becomes a symbolic emblem of the age-old connection with nature that humanity can receive in a regenerating embrace. This is a connection that the artist strengthens through performative actions and investigates the deep emotions that each individual colour triggers. Based on the colour red chosen by the artist for the performance “Georithmie”, the sensations are transmitted to the audience through sound, evocative images, and participative actions, all entering a unity and a silent dialogue.
In the exhibition, Mona Lisa Tina will also present two new series Bianco e Blu, both from 2021, which will accompany the series Rosso from 2020.
