Marinella Senatore - Afterglow

Mazzoleni is pleased to announce the multi-site exhibition Marinella Senatore. Afterglow, taking place at the London gallery at 15 Old Bond Street and at selected sites across the city, including the Embassy of Italy in London, the Battersea Power Station, the SIAL School and the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain in Holland Park, and the Petersham Nurseries in Covent Garden.

Marinella Senatore follows up Make it Shine — her first solo exhibition with Mazzoleni, shown at the Turin gallery between November 2021 and January 2022 – with Afterglow, an exhibition that not only presents a new body of sculptures and drawings at the London gallery, but also activates the city across different outdoor light installations and performances.

The multi-site nature of Afterglow exemplifies Senatore’s multidisciplinary and participatory practice, which is characterised by a strong collective dimension. Taking her inspiration from Southern Italy’s luminarie, the elaborate light structures that traditionally adorn cities and re-create cathedrals, piazzas, and other architectural elements for outdoor public celebrations and religious festivities, the artist will insert her own site-specific light sculptures on the facades and forecourts of significant buildings across London. Senatore’s ‘luminarie’ “are like monuments to and for people, to the ‘here and now’, to live actions and experiences.”
