Secret Essence of Italy presents Sabìr – “Visionary Bridge”

A Sabìr is a unitary whole composed of several canvases called ‘canovacci’. The name chosen by the artists to identify this new form of artwork refers to the language spoken in ancient times in harbors and docks around the Mediterranean Sea. The meticulous and delicate work of juxtaposition and binding carried out with this gauze to integrate the space left by the ‘missing words’ weaves the fragments together and renders a complete narration.

Organic pigments made with moistures from ancient recipes are used to create imaginary abstract patterns and shapes on precious fabric that take the viewer on a visual trip and an emotional journey that catch the imagination in new surprising ways. Pictorial textures that shape thought and silence, impalpable and yet visually powerful tapestries, born from the alchemy of color and friendship that unites their artistic partnership.

Secret Essence of Italy, the innovative cultural project conceived and led by Liria Ingallina, aimed to present in the US the best selection of the most talented and promising Italian Contemporary Artists, marks its debut with a visually stunning exhibition in the core of TriBeCa, NYC.//After a long-lasting prestigious and successful career at the top level in PR and Communication, Liria Ingallina has found a new mission and endeavor in which express her skills and experience, at service of culture and art, in support of talented independent artists to present in America the New Wave of Contemporary Art from Italy.
