La natura (non) ama nascondersi [Nature loves (not) to hide]

by Silvia Margaria, overall winner of the 2019 Arteam Cup Award

​​​​​​CUBO hosts the solo exhibition Nature loves (not) to hide by Silvia Margaria, winner of the Arteam Cup Award 2019, the artistic competition of the Arteam Cultural Association aimed at young emerging artists who stand out for their creativity and the significant value of their work. The exhibition is curated by Alice Zannoni.


  • Silvia Margaria, Dispersione, 2017,  showcase with fine art photographic print from b/w negative on cotton paper, found letter (dated 1959), white cotton ribbon​, 40x90 cm. (ArteamCup 2019 winning artwork).


To grasp the mystery of nature in its process of emergence and of life in its flow, Silvia Margaria travelled the Via del Sale, in the Maritime Alps, all alone, meticulously researching and observing the area. The journey is an integral part of the project and a slow gait was the basic movement of her search for harmony with her surroundings, rejecting the accelerated pace of everyday life. The artist enclosed herself in a dimension without distractions so that her isolation could shape her thoughts, just like the wolf, an animal that has repopulated the Alps and whose dual nature inspired Silvia Margaria: although a gregarious creature by nature, the wolf finds the strength to occupy new territory and form a new pack through isolation. This phase, which is biologically called Dispersion, becomes a metaphor and gave Silvia Margaria's installation its title".





  • Silvia Margaria, Dispersione, 2017, fine art photo print from b/w negative on cotton paper, 50x75 cm.

The installation Dispersion consists of the objects used and collected during the experience of the journey, such as the map of the territory, the stones that trekkers leave to indicate the way, the ribbons tied as trail markers, the letters found at antique shops that the same artist first treasured, then left on the trail along the road to then collect again on her return trip, through to the photographs using the oculus as a device.

The sound aspect of the installation is emblematic of Silvia Margaria's work, since the heart, like nature, is present yet invisible, hidden within the ribcage and marking the passing of our lifetime as it beats. Through these elements, Silvia Margaria expresses what the experience colonised in her very essence and thanks to this personal artistic path of hers, she has decided to share performative actions with the visitor. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, the artist proposes Prossimo [Next], a new collective work designed specifically for the gardens on the elevated square of Porta Europa in Bologna. This is a participatory installation whose title already intrinsically contains the future framework of a time to come. The intention to project oneself towards tomorrow offers itself as a gift of hope and a gesture of sharing, even within the intimacy of each person's own concentration. Personally addressing the user, Silvia Margaria will give a letter she has personally written to each visitor of the exhibition who can leave their mark, in a sort of collective happening, so that “Your words, together with those of the other visitors, will grow in an exponential whole, in a flowering that will be more than the sum of the individual parts", as the artist writes in her letter.
