SubheadlineClima is pleased to present the first solo show at the gallery by Nicola Martini (Firenze, 1984).
The Dyneema series rotates around viscosity and adherence. As in previous works it has been isolated a field for the work itself to happen with its own narration and rules. Two sheets of Dyneema fabric (a hyperlight heavy duty material) are sealed together with a PSA bonding tape, forming a sort of bag, an envelope ready to receive a liquid filling. This system is bond on the sides and in the middle as forming some pockets trapping some of the liquid content which has been poured in between. The filling is composed by a mixture of liquid latex gum, graphite powder.. Once the tape has cured, it’s streched on a aluminung painting strecher. The inner liquid is aiming to dry, using the small amount of air trapped inside. All the traces and marks of this process are somehow printed inside and clearly visible as the fabric has its own transparency.
