Semiotic Circuits

by Elisa Del Prete (ENG – ITA)


An essay on the artwork of Ivana Spinelli, published on the occasion of her solo show Contropelo at Gallleriapiù, Bologna (January 23 – March 18, 2020).


Usually, an artwork instinctively elicits a series of thoughts in my mind. Ivana Spinelli’s constructions bridle me. Mostly replicas of something I recognize, they ask me to stay and disentangle the system.

– Elisa Del Prete
