In Dialogue Part II

In Dialogue II provides the second part AucArt’s sale: In Dialogue; a collaboration with Finder which explores the differences and affinities within artists’ formal, thematic and iconographic languages, in turn cultivating a discourse on the work of 25 emerging international artists. Whilst the layout of the sale permits the viewer to draw connections between the works, so too does the nature of a two-part sale. Much like the works themselves, Part I and Part II are similarly “in dialogue” with one another.

Finder is a visual project started by Laura Di Teodoro in 2018 and its focus is to create dialogues between artworks and contemporary visual references. These relationships are formed on the basis of morphological and semantic relations, i.e. connections are based on the form, structure and messages within the works. Whilst some associations are more obvious, like those made between colour, others are more illusive, such as the reflection of a shape, decontextualized. Finder’s ethos arises from the necessity to fix inspiring content into time and space, which could be reactivated through associations at a later stage. Investigating shared relationships between works that straddle decades, opens us up to the idea that works of art are perpetually growing and shifting within their ever-changing contexts. The only aim is to create connections – not comparisons – among visual references; discourses that could offer new narratives and realms. 

AucArt’s  curator Marco Galvan and Finder’s founder Laura Di Teodoro worked together to research, select and associate artworks, in continuity with AucArt’s primary mission: to discover and support emerging artists around the world. The presentation will display intentional pairings of works in the form of diptychs by placing artists together for comparative analysis and dialogues. This sale adopts a hyper-textual approach in order to create artworks’ interactions that permit them to acquire new layers of meanings, expanding and enriching their essence.
