About The Artwork

“What’s the Matter” reflects on the state of contemporary communication. Referring to “old school”, handwritten paper scraps as a fresh, quick, analogue, and precious way to exchange thoughts, the reading possibilities of this body of work are various and on different depth layers. A shift of value and matter: everyday phrases, small talk expressions, exciting or seemingly futile short messages turn from something ephemeral to something of eternal duration. A sheet of paper becomes porcelain, a banal word a piece of art. We glorify the deep significance of small gestures and rediscover the intricate intimacy and power of non-digital written dialogue, giving it back its own dignity, preciousness, and beauty. Did a note ever change your life? The “What’s the Matter” series has been realised in porcelain, hand soldered brass and silver. Every work is unique. It is signed, packed in a black magnetic box, and provided with a special nail for the wall installation. WHAT’S THE MATTER is a work by Lava&Pink (duo of Jessica Rimondi, visual artist, and Nicola Gurrieri, architect- creative)

Jessica Rimondi is an Italian artist currently living in Berlin.She graduated in mixed media fine art at the University of Westminster of London and studied at the Accademia Albertina di Torino,Italy. Jessica elaborates upon seemingly quotidian activities in her paintings and installations, turning small moments and ordinary objects into deeper explorations of human emotions, feelings, and memories. Her work is thus conceived as a congruence between pop culture and ancestry, playing around the idea of functionality, perception and value through the use of different techniques. Gesture is at the forefront of her expressive paintings, germinating from her own photos, were common Objects and random situation photographed around visited places, sounds and processes, revealing a shift from nature to human, daily and historical. Her works are sort of microcosm questioning the value of little things that lead us wondering about them gleaning from our personal experiences. Jessica Rimondi has an extensive international exhibition and awards history, in the last years she realised ERBE DES ORTES, a project produced by AMCHA Deutschland, she collaborated with the Simard Bolodeau contemporary gallery of Los Angeles, has been invited for “Sound Vision In Vitro” for Matera Culture Capital 2019, selected as winner of ArtLab Munich indicted by Galerie Bejamin Eck 2020, received the “Highly commented price” for the CSR Travers Smith Art program(London, UK) and the fellowship for the Sacatar Foundation Residency in Brazil. Her last solo show took place at the Space Station Gallery in London.
