Mauro Di Silvestre
Early last year the renowned flamboyant Italian curator Angelo Bucarelli contacted the Roman artist Mauro Di Silvestre with the quest to find 5 international artists for an expedition to Baku and Shusha in Azerbaijan. The Danish artist Ellen Wolf, Baris Saribas from Turkey, Ache77 from Rumania and Marcel Hüppauff joined them in the quest and spent 12 days in Azerbaijan. There they found an exciting and very lively (art) scene, breathtaking landscapes, amazing hospitality,and friendship, wondrous dancing vegetables, aliens in the shape of sparkling skyscrapers, a city reigned by friendly stray cats and even true love!
Still having the sweet smell of petroleum in our hair, we are now bringing this "magical mystery tour" to Hamburg for the next gambit. On board are two artists from Azerbaijan who share the same insatiable joie de vivre, love for painting, and the will to dance around the fire with us. The astonishing Ulviyya Seyidova and Farhad Farzal are now with us in Hamburg for a spectacle without a spectacle:
IL GAMBETTO DI BAKU!!!!
