Guido Casaretto leads a guided tour of his exhibition The Ghosts of Matter
26.10.2019 at 12 noon
On Saturday 26 October at 12 noon Guido Casaretto will give a guided tour of his exhibition The Ghosts of Matter.
The session will be conducted in English. No need to pre-book. Please arrive at the MOCAK Reception 5 minutes before the guided tour (in the price of the ticket).
The exhibition is the latest in a series of individual presentations by artists whose works are featured in the MOCAK Collection. We are showing 17 works from the years 2014–2019. Seven of them were created especially for the exhibition in Krakow.
Guido Casaretto’s (born 1981) life and work incorporate many cultures. He was born in Turkey, grew up in Greece and Italy, and now lives in Istanbul. His remote Italian ancestors left for Asia Minor during the Ottoman Empire. But they never assimilated – they became part of a community known as Levantine, made up of Christian immigrants from France, Italy and England. The artist studied at the Faculty of Painting of the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in Istanbul and at the Faculty of Painting and Conceptual Art of the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologne. He distances himself from the influence of any culture on his work, although one can occasionally find in it references to Italian art and tradition.
