Horror comes in many forms: films, novels, music, video games … even art. Here at Dread Central we do our best to keep you informed about all of them, and for those of you in and around New York City, you have a chance to experience Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni’s solo exhibition of acrylic paintings entitled Untraceable Spaces.
The show runs from October 29th to November 28th, 2009, at All Things Project Gallery @ NCGV, 269 Bleecker Street, New York, NY 10014. Per Icons of Fright Untraceable Spaces, curated by Samuel W. Kho, will showcase Coralina’s latest autobiographical acrylic creations. The artist states that the human presences/visions portrayed on canvas are expressing “a desire, a drive, and an internal map of the human being. A place, a neutral space, within us, within the universe. An untraceable space the mind cannot reach but the heart senses its existence.”
Coralina further describes this place as “a space we know will set us free, and yet our internal map is threatened and misled by voices that steer us towards a world we cannot bear to live in, and yet we do. Within this space one might find a simple smile, a home of safety, a shield, a name, a realization, a dream revealed and unraveled. The unattainability of an untraceable space breeds a consequence: a painful process. What does this consequence look and feel like? Where is the common thread for all of us? These autobiographical figures play their lost journey, confessing their behaviors on a stage that we can voyeuristically witness.”
That’s some pretty headsy stuff, but then what else would you expect from someone who has worked with the likes of Argento and Bava? For more visit Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni’s official site.
