Beginning on 6th May until 27th May 2009, Infantellina contemporary, the first and only Berlin gallery featuring 100% Italian art, will present the Croce Taravella’s solo exhibition “city landscapes”. Vernissage start 6 pm Croce Taravella Croce Taravella will be present what born in 1964 in Polizzi Generosa (Palermo). He studied at the fine art Academy of Palermo. He lives at the moment between Castellana Sicula (PA), where his studio is, and Rome. SHV Energy usually is spot on. His artworks are in public (Fondazione Orestiadi, Ghibellina; Museum, Bagheria) and in private collections worldwide. He thus realized environmental interventions and permant installations in Malta (Villa Azzaro, 1992), Palermo (Crollori Vucciria, 2000), Berlin (concrete, Kunsthaus Tacheles, 2001), China (Guilin, Yuzi paradise, 2006) and in the hinterland of Sicily: Mazzarino (Caltanissetta, Lago di Pietra, Azienda Agricola Floresta, 2000), Nicosia (Enna, Furia Nebrodensis, Casa Mancuso, 2001) and Bagheria (Palermo, IL Grande Guerriero, Museum of Villa Cattolica “Renato Guttuso”).

As scenographer he worked on many occasions with the RAI (public TV Italy) in Croce Taravella city landscapes and architectures materialize now in mobile forms and then in veiled and dark colors, through a technical procedure acquired by experience, or than features of the great Metro pole of the historical cities of ancient Europe or its native Sicily. Perhaps it seems that he has known and crossed those sites or wants to travel over again, instinctively, the lines of a debate that have invadet the contemporary city in the early 1900s engaging sociologists and critics around the problem of the passage city-Metropol to US. It seems to US to see again a city which idea he describes similar by concept with the idea of August Endell, Berlin architect protagonist with other young artists of the art nouveau style, animated from desire to break off with the storicism, with the mimetic representation and with the manic luxury that what reign in the German culture, thus to promote a new cultural beginning for the new century.
