The Guardian live chat: Making residencies work for both venue and artist

La Scatola Gallery, Director and Curator, Valentina Fois has been invited to be part of a panel in an online live chat for The Guardian where they discussed about making residencies work for both venue and artist. You can read here all the comments.

Wild Culture: “Elsewhere in the Art Projects section – probably stronger and more interesting than in previous years – a number of galleries excel. The most diverse but consistently engaging is, for me, La Scatola.”

1883 Magazine: “We are particularly pleased to include in the above list La Scatola gallery, for the first time this year at the fair. The gallery founded by Valentina Fois in 2010 shows a range of work engaging with – and against – the prophetic notions of art and civilization by Steven Morgana, Sarah Maple Sarah Tew, David Paredes, Stephane Blumer and Tal Regev. Particularly interesting is Morgana’s Mottainai, an obelisk made out of cardboard reflecting on our relationship with nature and referencing Michelangelo Pistoletto’s work.”

Fad Website: “Steven Morgana at La Scatola Gallery: “When Steven Morgana saw Michelangelo Pistoletto’s ‘The Mirror of Judgement’ at the Serpentine last year, he wasn’t impressed, concluding that ‘taking a spiritual stroll through a cardboard labyrinth to then worship one’s image at a mirrored obelisk’ did ‘nothing to engage with conditions of today’s globalised societies’”.

Wild Culture: “As part of London Art Fair next week, La Scatola – one of the most consistently engaging contemporary art galleries in London – is presenting a project by Australian-born artist Steven Morgana that holds this mirror of judgement back up to Pistoletto himself, and, indeed, perhaps, to contemporary consumer society more generally.”

La Scatola’s Director & Curator Valentina Fois was interviewed for the Timeless issue of 1883 Magazine- available Dec 1st 2012.
