Galleria Lia Rumma is pleased to present in the gallery’s space in Naples, on Sunday, December 15th at 11:00 am, a collaborative show by Ottonella Mocellin and Nicola Pellegrini.

Over the last several years these two Milanese artists have explored, in both collaborative and independent projects, issues related to human relationships and the constant need for renewal of the psychological and emotional levels which everyday existence depends upon. Their work combines a narrative aspect, inspired by the cinematographic image, and a strong presence of text (both written and oral). By using the metaphor of a game, Mocellin and Pellegrini investigate the continuous need for improvement and exploration of communication. This metaphor is used to speak of human relationships, the development of a reciprocal knowledge of the other, and of the roles which we play in our personal relationships.

The project Happy Together, which was conceived during their period as artists-in-residence at P.S.1 in New York, consists of a series of photographs and a video installation entitled I’m too sad to tell you.
