We are pleased to announce Nessuno è Solo, a solo exhibition by Italian artist Woc.Always fascinated by the infinite symbolic and aesthetic values that the “image” has acquired in the contemporary area, Woc explores the images of moments which have appeared on the web due to their highly discussed nature. The artist through his spray painting technique, makes eternal an iconography condemned to be lost due to the swiftness of Internet communication.
The title refers to the disappearance of the ‘real body’ in favor of the ‘body of the spectacle’: from the Glorified Body – the body of awareness, of rebellion, of otherness – to the Contemporary Body – intended on the one hand as the body of our spectacle-based society, and on the other in its most poetic forms of exodus, of work, of the silent multitude.

PUSH THE LIMITS is a project that investigates how art takes itself to the limit to move the horizon of thinking, perception and speech ever further in order to introduce new elements; to say yes or no when “normality” falters; to highlight what is proposed in the present and to prevent a situation of merely treading water.
Element is pleased to present Social Boom, Woc’s latest exhibition project, created for the gallery spaces and on show through July 14, 2020, vistable by appointment.
In an effort to help contain the situation and prioritizing the safety of our staff, artists and local community, Noire Gallery will temporarily close and suspend operations at our location in Tokyo.
