On 23 March 2023 FMAV Fondazione Modena Arti Visive is opening three important exhibitions hosted in the FMAV venues of Palazzo Santa Margherita and Palazzina dei Giardini, in a meeting of emerging talents, experimentation and playfulness.

Taking place in Palazzo Santa Margherita is Mécaniques Discursives. Don't follow the guide!

The duo’s poetic (consisting of the French-Swiss videographer Yannick Jacquet and the Belgian engraver Fred Penelle) brings together two epochs – of Gutenberg and Big Data – that are worlds apart. 

Old engraving techniques are taken out of their traditional context into wall projections, recycled objects, mosaics of drawings and 3D installations. 

The result is astonishing: a universe of imaginative iconographies, where times collide in a narrative maze where there is just one rule: “Don’t follow the guide”.
