Since March 17, TILE project space is hosting DENISE, a solo show by Michele GabrieleDENISE is a flow in which the environment is pressing and tightens. She is an unlimited permanence but divided in correspondence with the unwinding of purposeful phenomena. The substance is in excess, in surplus towards the walls dry and bright. The sections of which it is formed appear like mnestic traces, engrams, the physical elements of the memory still in action.
 DENISE is an identity which turns but does not change shape, she is suspended between two distinct temporalities but unable to define her. She hides in her inner leaving her flavor on things. Disturbed by what surrounds her, DENISE freezes any information in their original form that causes anxiety. Balances are broken and the substance is expanded in a not functional way. 
DENISE wanders around the house looking for memories of her lost love, but she finds traces only 
on herself.

Michele Gabriele was born in Fondi (LT) in 1983. Graduated at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, he is a visual artist that lives and works in Milan. Since 2008 he collaborates with Cherimus, a collective of artists and also an association of contemporary art that aims to integrate local identities and contemporary art. At the beginning of 2015 he founded with the American artist Mark Pieterson, the duo P & G, a collaborative duo exploring the limits and potentials of materiality and immateriality within networked, digital production and generative environments. A duo project that already presented us with a phenomenal visual parade in our latest episode of the mixtape series.
