Jacopo Miliani – Male Male Malen

Marsèlleria presents Male Male Malen, a solo exhibition by Jacopo Miliani that will take place in the venue of via privata Rezia 2. The show attempts to translate a personal universe through the painting medium, which has been taken on by the artist for the first time, with big irony.

Melancholic and absurd figures (mime, Pierrot, geisha), collide with childish memories creating a half-serious aura, connected with the exhibition environment. In the show there are different collaborations with performers and artists. Presented at the occasion of the opening reception, a fanzine with critical and poetical texts by João Mourão and Luis Silva, Francesco Urbano Ragazzi and Sara Giannini is part of this universe of relationships and represents the inner dialogue of the exhibition.

Jacopo Miliani was born in Florence. He lives and works in Milan. The work of Jacopo Miliani is based on an interdisciplinary research involving different practices such as installation, performance, collage, photography; within a methodology that produce works whose comprehension is suspended on different levels of interpretation. Solo exhibitions include Kunsthalle Lissabon, Lisbon (2016), Nogueras Blanchard, Barcelona (2016), ICA Studio, London (2015), videoteque of GAM, Turin (2013), EX3, Florence (2012) and the exhibitions at Studio Dabbeni in Lugano (2015 e 2010) and FRUTTA gallery in Rome (2012 e 2014). He realized several performances at David Roberts Art Foundation, London (2016—2012), Fondazione Giuliani, Rome (2015), Museum of Dance, Stockholm (2014), CCSP, Sao Paulo (2014), ViaFarini/DOCVA, Milan (2014), MADRE, Naples (2011).
