NUVOLARI, NATURAL BEGINNERS      A Show With:      India Carpenter, Alex Cecchetti, Antoine Davenne, Patrizio Di Massimo, Chokyosai Eiri, Keisai Eisen, Tim Etchells, Katsushika Hokusai, Lenio Kaklea, Carlos Motta, Francesco Pedraglio,     Heather Phillipson, Laure Prouvost, Giles Round, Yanagawa Shigenobu, Lucy Stein    and anonymous from the erotic art collection of  Ferdinand Bertholet , one of the most important in the world.     Natural Beginners    is an erotic gesture addressed to a multiplicity of forms. The exhibition focuses on the  proximity of things and their sensorial and imagina­tive tensions. Objects, performances and texts will excite your eccentricity, and expand it, till it resonates with a chair, a window, a drawing.  An autumn  para­vent  is already longing for the springtime to come.
