Dead matter + other sensations in Monia Ben Hamouda’s Miranda at PANE, Mar 14 – 21

14 March 2017

Monia Ben Hamouda is presenting solo exhibition Miranda at Milan’s PANE projects, opening March 14 and running to March 21. 

Hamouda, who works between Milan, Helsinki and Tunisi, will show new work at Antonio Miranda butcher shop. Including a dedicated gift by Nicole Colombo, there will also be an accompanying text by Liege’s Diesel Project Space curator and co-founder Noëmi Merca, who moves between experiences of sensation and dead matter:

“Love. I remember this feeling; to love and to be loved. Also, the one who drives us to transcend ourselves through desire. Sweet passion: intense and pure, floating in an air balloon filled with a transparent liquid. Then, everything suddenly vanishes.”

This will be PANE’s third project in the their home city, Milan and marks their first solo exhibition.

Looking forward to Pane’s Bubble Tea by glancing back at Kelly Bar

14 December 2016

The Kelly Bar group exhibition at Milan’s Cafè al 5 ran over two days at the beginning of the year from January 14 to 17, 2016.

Curated by Pane Projects (that likens itself to the qualities of bread, “full of calories”) and spanning sculpture, installation, video and sound, the show brought together 20 artists:

Martina Alemani, Enrico Boccioletti, Lucy Chinen, Rosa Ciano, Nina Cristante, Adam Cruces, Leon Eisermann, Michele Gabriele, Ilja Karilampi, Lucia Leuci, Kareem Lotfy, Quintessa Matranga, Jan Broz & Richard Nikl, Ella Plevin, Fabio Santacroce, Anna Solal, Bianca Stoppani, Marco Tempesta, Pieter Vermeulen and Bruno Zhu

The project is conceived around the concept of some kind of anti-exoticised Chinese cafe that ironises a globalised otherness with the press release announcement that it “DOESN’T list abstruse and exotic Chinese dishes with bright names”.

For their next exhibition, the Pane Projects curatorial team based in the Italian city presents Bubble Tea, opening December 14 and running to the December 21. It also offers a packed line-up including Age of AquariusPaul Barsch, Derek Paul Boyle & Mitra Saboury and Jason Hirata among others and will explore the idea of ‘newness’ in relation to the millennial generations’ capability of “astonishment [and] incredulity towards something unknown.”**
