BRUSSELS.- Galleria Anna Marra (Italy) and Gallery Nosco (UK - France) announced their partnership as the joint venture: MARRA\NOSCO Gallery.

The newly Brussels based gallery will run an exhibition space in addition to those already managed abroad by the two founding partners. The partnership will enhance and expand the focus of the two galleries, which already demonstrates a highly complementary and multidisciplinary artistic program, and will create dialogues between artists from different generations and continents, as well as sign on promising emerging artists on the international scene.

It’s not the first collaboration of these two galleries in Brussels. In March 2021, in a moment when the art world had come to a standstill, prioritizing digital viewing rooms and virtual shows, both galleries teamed up with a third one to open a joint curatorial physical venue in Brussels called Bubble’n’Squeak. Hosted with the incentive of supporting global younger and mid career artists achieve visibility through exhibitions and selected art fairs, the temporary curatorial project has now closed after showing 40 international artists and 4 exhibitions.

MARRA\NOSCO Brussels venue is located in the central neighbourhood of St Catherine, on the first floor of a charming historic building.

The opening group show that inaugurates the new space brings together represented and newly signed artists, and constitutes a first testimony of what’s to come. Titled The Little Thing That Counts, the show presents work by Andreea Albani, Norbert Filep, Carlos Martiel,
José Carlos Martinat, José Luis Martinat, Nunzio, Radu Oreian, Andrew Orloski, Perino & Vele and Túlio Pinto.

Andreea Albani (1988, Bucharest, Romania), abstract drawer and painter, whose conceptual body of work resembles a memory archive of psychological events, in her own words – “a visual alphabet”.

Norbert Filep (1990, Romania), conceptual drawing practician with his figuratively evocative monochromatic graphite on paper work, seemingly engaging with the apparent death of the painting. By using well controlled geometries, repetitions, different layers of colour or graphite, or even materials like glass, Norbert Filep creates abstract compositions which are questioning the role of contemporary imagery inside of a well digitalized society.

Carlos Martiel (1989, Havana, Cuba). Cuban performance artist Carlos Martiel uses his body to address the restrictions and limitations within the lived experience of the black male body.

José Carlos Martinat (1974, Lima, Peru) whose approach about appropriation involves the extraction of elements from the streets peeling-off pintas políticas, the collection of gypsum molds from the foundries where heroes of the 19th century were molten in bronze, which is re-contextualized afterwards.

José Luis Martinat (1974, Lima, Peru), by appropriating, manipulating and distorting pre-existing materials, it changes the original meaning and generates the possibility of new associations and interpretations.

Nunzio (1954, Cagnano Amiterno, Italy) deals in his sculptural work with the formal possibilities of different materials such as wood, plaster and lead, and explores their material and immaterial effect as related to light. One of his most typical aspects is his burning of wood, creating an intense blackness which is intrinsic to the material.

Radu Oreian (1984, Tarnaveni, Romania), is a graduate of the National University of Arts in Bucharest and of the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, he uses drawing, painting and installation in his practice. The concept of ‘collective portraits’ that constitute the main body of Oreian’s work is placed at the intersection of art, philosophy, language, history and the ever-evolving form of complexity that society generates today.

Andrew Orloski’s (1986, USA) work explores notions of monumentalism and
 banality with an inquisitive look at mundane, often overlooked objects we surround ourselves with daily. His process utilizes a variety of traditional and contemporary mold
making techniques, which aid in the transformation of objects through materiality.

Túlio Pinto (1974, Brasilia, Brazil) is interested in the tension created by the relationship of forces. His sculptures often juxtapose two “opposing” materials such as metal and blown glass, balancing them with the help of gravity.
