    The seventh catalogue of the series Avvistamenti | Sightings is dedicated to the english artist Cornelia Parker, on the occasion of the exhibition at GAM, Torino, opening from April 28th to June 17th, 2001.   The huge amount of images makes perfectly understand Cornelia Parker's creative process, thanks also to the two essays, figuring out the use and meaning of objects making and giving life to her installations. The artist creates surroundings often similar to dramatic performances in which the objects-protagonists, most of them unusual, familiar and belonged to well known people, have been phisically transformed and modified in how they appear and in what they represent.   The book opens with the photographic documentation of the exhibition, collecting about 50 works produced in the last 5 years, to then go back through the artist's work with images of installations, drawings and photographs, from 1980 up to the present day, and closing with an updated bio/bibliography.

     

    Avvistamenti | Sightings is a project by GAM, Galleria Civica di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea of Torino, supervised by Alessandra Pace. It expects ten personal exhibitions by international artists and ten catalogues, published by hopefulmonster, containing the artworks' photographic documentation, critical essays by important museum's supervisors and art historians, an interview to the artist and a complete bio/bibliography.

    The fifth catalogue of the series Avvistamenti/Sightings is dedicated to the portuguese artist Pedro Cabrita Reis, eclectic personality who expresses himself through sculptures, installations, drawings and paintings. The catalogue is planned by a temporal route that begins from the current exhibition at the GAM, to which the works of the most recent years follow, going back in time with the images from his archive's works. The book opens with the complete photographic documentation of the works expressly done for the GAM, with both individual works and exhibition's views , to which other two images sections follow, intercalated by the pages of the text by Doris Von Drathen, Giving Heed to Silence, which describes Pedro Cabrita Reis' works as occupied by silence and light. The author mentions the Cidades Cegas, 1998, sheds and huts stuck together, hang up and closed that let feel the choking interior that prevents breathing, the Wrapping Tape Landscape # 1, 1999, where the sealing up landscape doesn't breath and stand in the silence, and the Cathedral # 2, 1999, made by red bricks lined up and covered with light that create a space suitable for "giving heed to silence"...
