Giorgio Vigna | Costellazioni | 29 May – 5 July 2024


“My work and research are situated on a boundary, a margin, between reality and imagination. Throughout my exploration, this boundary expands and creates a suspended space-time where time is subjective and space is imaginary. It is within this suspension that new “natural states” of matter and form can emerge and manifest. The micro and the macrocosm intertwine – the large and the small, the light and the heavy, the solid and the liquid, the cold and the hot. They interchange positions and generate artworks that ask us to suspend our biases and preconceptions.”  Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery is thrilled to announce its major exhibition of Giorgio Vigna’s ever-evolving work – Costellazioni, 29 May – 5 July 2024.   Celebrating fifteen years of exciting collaborations between Giorgio Vigna and the gallery, the exhibition will feature 50 pieces, including wearable artworks, sculptures, and works on paper made from the 1980s to the present.   Costellazioni is not a retrospective; it is a storytelling of over four decades of Vigna’s transformative material poetry, resulting in stunning pieces that achieve the perfect balance between materials, forms, and concepts.   The works are a statement of Vigna’s experimental and metamorphic artistic research. At the forefront are his wearable sculptures, alongside Cosmografie (Cosmographies), the works on […]

Playing with scale, volume and weight, Joanne Thompson creates unique sculptural ornaments experimenting precious metals that can mutate into a sensual tridimensionality that embraces and flows with the body. We are delighted to share our conversation with the Artist explaining her creative process and the joy of making. EC: Tell us about yourself and what do you do? (What is your background?) JT: I am a designer and maker of contemporary chain jewellery, living and working from my home studio in Edinburgh, Scotland. I studied jewellery design firstly at Edinburgh College of Art, (1st class honours degree) followed by a Masters at RCA in London.

JT: I have always been interested in unit construction and textile techniques in jewellery making.  With chain making it is possible to take solid precious metals and fabricate them into something soft, fluid, and tactual.
