rosenfeld porcini gallery

Located in the heart of the dynamic gallery district of London’s Fitzrovia, Rosenfeld Porcini opened with the express intention of presenting a strong international programme. Our exhibition ‘Memory’ featuring 9 sculptors from 6 nations recently travelled to PAN Museum, Naples and in 2011 we staged a solo exhibition of American artist Leonardo Drew at our partner gallery Galleria Napolinobillisima. Our recent themed exhibition ‘The Continuation of Romance’ was devoted to contemporary painting and underlied a contextual basis to explore our firm curatorial belief in the continuity that underlies the story of art.

Bongsu Park

SOUND and VISION: Bongsu Park and Keita Miyazaki

  • 25 July — 30 September 2014 *on now

Park’s starting point is to look at herself and her relationship to other people, her need for company yet also solitude. Her pieces are born out of this quandary: The continual oscillation between the joining and separation of human relationships. Park has created, for the first time, a piece with three dancers, CELL in which she experiments with perspectives and display. CORE, which is also inaugurated in the exhibition, concerns an individual’s dialogue with sculptural form.

Miyazaki’s sculptures are quite different to Park’s videos as they arise out of an observation of the exterior world. After witnessing the tragedy of the tsunami, the artist felt the need to create a new ‘utopian’ vision out of the ashes of the ‘dystopia’ in Japan. He wanted to create artworks out of the rubble, sculptures, which would point forward to a new beginning. Miyazaki’s works, which marry traditional Japanese origami with parts of old car engines, create a completely new visual universe.

Bongsu Park and Keita Miyazaki’s final observations of the ‘inner’ and ‘outer’ world share a great attention to formal excellence and a highly original approach to their chosen mediums. There is no slavish adherence to current artistic fashions but merely a strong, individual vision pushed as far as each artist can take it.

Piano Recital and Art at rosenfeld porcini : Giovanni Guidi & Nicola Samori

  • 16 October 2014 7:30-9:15pm

rosenfeld porcini’s ongoing cultural programme features performance, debates and talks where the public is invited to experience and explore contemporary genres and topics in art. A rich variety of events has already punctuated 2014; A dance performance created by artist Bongsu Park; Haiku by CONTROLUCE Teatro d’Ombre, which combined dance with shadow theatre; an evening of music by string quartet ‘Quartetto Prometeo’; and more recently, a panel discussion on Video Art with invited guests David Gryn, Tabish Khan and Mark Westall alongside director Ian Rosenfeld.

After the tremendous success of last year’s concert, Giovanni Guidi is back at the gallery to perform on a grand piano a series of improvisations based on his highly successful album ‘City Of Broken Dreams’ – ECM 2013, as well as from his already recorded, but unreleased new record expected early next year. The afore-mentioned ECM album from 2013 received rave reviews internationally; the pianist himself was termed one of the world’s best jazz-piano newcomers by Guardian jazz critic John Fordham. Join us for an unforgettable evening of musical virtuosity.

The performance is set to begin at 7.30pm and will last 1 hour 45 min with intermission.
Tickets: £20, advance booking on Eventbrite recommended

Please note that late arrivals will ONLY be admitted during the intermission


Note on the Artist

Born in 1985 in Foligno, Italy, Giovanni Guidi has manifested interest in music as a young child. He formally started his studies in piano at the age of 12. During summer master classes in Siena, he attracted the attention of Enrico Rava – jazz trumpeter and member of the New Quintet – who later asked him to join the group Rava Under 21, and subsequently Rava New Generation. It was with this later group that Guidi had a break through and appeared on a nationally distributed CD for the magazine “L’Espresso.” Guidi has also featured in the Gianluca Petrella’s Cosmic Music Orchestra, Fabrizio Sferra Trio and currently leads his own group. The pianist has performed in a number of important festivals, including Umbria Jazz, Villa Celimontana Jazz Festival, Ubi Jazz, Vicenza New Conversation, Umbria Jazz Balkanic Windows, Zurich Nu Jazz, Fandango Jazz Festival, Stavanger Mai Jazz, Vigo Jazz Festival and North Sea Jazz Festiva. Giovani Guidi was named best Italian pianist in 2011 by the magazine Insound and he released in early March 2013 a first record as a leader for ECM "City of Broken Dreams", with the collaboration of American double-bassist Thomas Morgan and Portuguese drummer João Lobo.
