Parallel Universe is a body of work which Jules de Balincourt has realized specifically for Collezione Maramotti. As is often the case with de Balincourt, the  five new paintings were all worked on at the same time, in the same studio, allowing them to gradually come into dialogue with one another as a direct result of his studio practice. The artist’s approach to his work is largely intuitive: preferring that the paintings evolve organically as he goes back and forth between them, and they take shape individually and as an ensemble.The paintings in Parallel Universe can thus be seen as forming a kind of loosely interlocked map, one that explores and charts the relationships between representation and abstraction, and the act of painting.

The exhibition is accompanied by an artist’s book, published by Silvana Editoriale, with a critical text by Mario Diacono and a conversation between Jules de Balincourt and Bob Nickas, an American critic who has taken an interest in the artist’s work for over ten years.

The exhibition can be visited, free of charge, during the opening hours of the permanent collection:
Thursday and Friday 2:30–6:30pm 
Saturday and Sunday 10:30–6:30pm
Closed on 25–26 December 2012, and on 1 and 6 January 2013
