Installation "THE BRIGH SIDE OF THE SUN" NONE collective
The new year has begun and, for us, it’s time for an analysis: 2023 was an intense year, and Bergamo Brescia Italian Capital of Culture was an opportunity to inaugurate a space dedicated to art and culture in the right urban context. And soon we’ll need some more time to finish what we started and complete the renovation works. Until January 7, you can visit - or, why not, visit again - gres art 671 and the SOLARPUNK exhibition. To celebrate our first two-months , we can’t wait to welcome you on January 7, for the finissage of the exhibition and the last two hours, from 6.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m., the toast is on us.

In these months of opening, gres art 671 has been a place to meet, have a coffee, wonderand imagine what we could build here. We have lived great art 671 as a place of possibilities.

gres art 671 is a place of public vocation, where art and culture blend with dialogue, by embracing community needs and investigating new languages of the contemporary. A place that invites people to discover, have fun, and experiment new possibilities.

To make the possibility come true, gres art 671 still needs some time. This is whyfrom January 8 2024 it is going toclose for a fewmonths to finish the requalification works. We’ll open again in springtime, as soon asthe transformation of gres art iscompleted. Here, you can find new spaces and services toswing more and morebetween art and life.

Installation "DISASTRO" NONE collective
Installation "DISASTRO" NONE collective
This year, when Bergamo and Brescia were named 2023 Italian Capital of Culture, gres art 671 pays homage to the so-called ‘Illuminated city’ thanks to an exhibition which projects the visitor into futuristic scenarios, looking for a new perspective on the challenges imposed by climate change. The SOLARPUNK exhibition is a performance space, a laboratory of perceptive investigation to experience change. NONE collective works on overlapping: artificial and human, numbers and nature, memory and imagination, developing projects that interpret the condition of man in the digital society. SOLARPUNK is a transmedia exhibition where the experience is at the heart. Solarpunk is a literary and artistic movement that conceives and works to create a sustainable future, intertwined with nature and community. ‘Solar’ refers to solar energy, seen as a renewable source of energy and an optimistic vision of a future that rejects the idea of climate catastrophism. ‘Punk’, on the other hand, refers to the countercultural, post-capitalist and decolonial enthusiasm, essential to build such a future.

Scenario 1: "What if there were no fossil fuels and the sun were the only source of energy? We would use the energy offered by the sun."

The bright side of the sun: the light installation is composed of an array of 625 halogen lamps, reflected in a framework of mirrors, creating the visual effect of a 50 m diameter sphere. The energy of the installation is precisely that of the sun, in fact, it comes from renewable sources. Thanks to a visual effect achieved through non-parallel mirror panels, looking inside the installation, the visitors discover a ‘quadrisphere’ much larger than its container. The caustic lights given by the reflections on the Mylar evoke the light of the galaxy. The sun reflected is about 20 m in diameter and the solar energy reproduced is about 30 Kwh.

Scenario 2:"What if climate disasters became more and more frequent? We would be gathering in resilient communities, sharing resources and hopes. Because we’re all on the same boat."

Disaster: light installation composed of a vibrant platform and a ring light which projects the shades of the visitors on the walls. Dis-astro (disaster), which literally means ‘with no stars’, because with no references you may get lost. Visitors are all reunited on a drafting raft, their bodies are the only presence on scene, a bulwark of hopeful humanity looking for holds and landing places.

Scenario 3:"What if we could not stay outside and had to take solar showers for health reasons? We would share a moment of care and meditation together. There would be indoor light therapy for humans."

Solarium: light installation composed of UV dynamic lights on the ceiling, surrounded by mirror-walls. On the floor, there are cushions to lie on.

the work Solis Silos
One of the symbols of the new life of gres art 671 are the seven silos placed at the entrance. Seven corten steel giants, 10 metres high, 3.5 metres in diameter and weighing 39 tons, designed by Mario Nanni, manufactured and lit by Viabizzuno, welcome the public and become a hallmark of the walkway towards gres art. Architectural elements that have, in turn, a story to tell. Indeed, they are the constructions that, during Expo 2015, inhabited the centre of Milan, in Brera, and that, at gres art 671, once again, speak of regeneration and restitution.

These objects, adapted to the urban scale, conceal a meticulous attention to detail, typical of domestic objects. The volumes are made of iron in its natural state, a material evolving both in its surface and colour.

Influencing both the surfaces and the moments shared with the public, for the seven silos, the passage of time is essential. These imposing cylinders create a perspective cone that guides and punctuates the walkway to the entrance, while offering a restful place for those who wish to sit on their plinths.

the work Solis Silos
Art and creativity cross the building to reach the landscape, the surroundings and the urban context. Not only do the seven silos dialogue with each other, but also and above all, with the architecture and the city, becoming an integral part of the space. An architecture to inspire, to welcome, to rest.
