Pallas Projects are pleased to present Mismatch by Florencia Caiazza, the 5th exhibition in the Artist-Initiated Projects 2020/21 programme.
Florencia Caiazza’s work acts as a reaction to a space or a time (an exhibition space, a new studio, city, a season, a specific weather). Finding the right medium is the starting point to develop a dialogue/reaction.
Her exploration of materials often focuses on repetition, a patient accumulation of gestures and actions that become a sculptural volume.
Recently she has been exploring with knitting, conceiving it as a practise of reflection about time itself, that demands a deceleration of the time of urban life and digitized humanities.
“I always found fascinating how Florencia Caiazza´s work developed in a time-dimension outside the urban rhythm. Her moves are naturally secretive and self-assuring while inhabiting the state of uncertainty, not knowing where the work will take her. Decelerated perception is natural for her, and from this point of view, she observes minimal, almost invisible, changes. From this point on, she invents a recipe with the materials that are put in front of her, observing and responding to their demands. (…)” — Renata Zas
