Milan, 23 April 2013, Art Media Agency (AMA).

From 23 April to 25 May 2013, Milanese gallery Cadi Black Box will be exhibiting works by Marnie Weber and Loredana Di Lillo.

The event titled “Mommy Puffy Daddy Monster” features multimedia works by Loredana Di Lillo who explores issues of the past and lost innocence. Di Lillo also exhibits drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs and videos concerning societal themes. She is interested in flaws and virtues, local history and identity. She looks into everyday existence by combining her works with her daily habits.

Marnie Weber exhibits a film titled “The Night of Forevermore” that questions the relation between a young witch, played by the artist’s daughter Colette Rose Shaw, and an old witch who sold her soul to devil, played by the artist herself. The film is presented in parallel with large-scale collages. These romantic landscapes are filled with witches, monsters and other strange creatures, creating a surrealistic universe.

Marnie Weber was born in 1959 and she works in Los Angeles. She graduated from the University of California. Among her solo shows we might mention: “The Night of Forevermore” at the Marc Joncou Contemporary in New York, “The Autumn Bear” at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and “LOST” at the Municipal Art Gallery in L.A.

Loredana Di Lilli lives and works in Milan. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. She took part in the following group exhibitions: “Ovovia Italia 61, un po d’arte” in Turin, “Calamitati da Gino” at the Centro Italiano Arte Contemporanea de Foligno, among others. De Lillo was awarded the “Talk to the City” Prize (Milan) and the 13° Premio Cairo (Milan, 2012).
