MADRID.- Sabrina Amrani is presenting the online group exhibition I Got You Under My Skin, presenting works by Apparatus 22, Marlon de Azambuja, Fuentesal&Arenillas, Sandra Gamarra, Alexandre Gouršon, Bodo Korsig, Joseph La Piana, Julia Llerena, Paloma Polo and Benjamin Sabatier.

We’ve heard Sinatra singing those words thousands of times on radio, records and movies from a Hollywood’s golden age. With this and other songs, “The Voice” conquered our minds and today we associate those melodies with a whole culture. But what or who had Sinatra under the skin? Obviously, a woman ... It was always a woman. However, we want to go a little further to show the motivation that leads us to this exhibition: within these loves, attachments, desires, which give rise to songs, poetry books, novels, cinema, photography, painting, art in short, stands a human fever that cannot be quenched beats. We think that for an artist, what really is under the skin, that force that itches and cannot be scratched, that need to create, to communicate, to share, to emerge and go outside, is both the origin and the very result of our essence. The essence of life, and more specifically, the essence of our species. The scorching itch of creativity is actually a key link in evolution itself. If not biological, which could also be analyzed elsewhere, we do believe we can venture that it is one of the keys to cultural and social evolution, which also leads us to the constitution of thought, to the origin of many of our convictions. It is no secret that art creates a collective conversation that ends up permeating culture and finally civilization.

I Got You Under My Skin focuses on that energy that is constantly moving us and can't be stopped: it is inherent to life. No, this creative fever is fueled by needs that probably respond to the very laws of the Universe. Like life, man is forced to walk forward: he engages in a constant need for creation and evolution. Even isolated, individually, the conversation that each artist generates grows towards the collective, often reaching broader frameworks within the art world, and as we have already pointed out, of civilization itself. For some reason, perhaps for the very survival of the social being, we tend to connect everything, to expand ideas and share them, something that is not only inherent in the art world. From our gallery dimension, we also follow the links of a chain that also connects practically everything globally, the same that allows us to present a virtual exhibition like this one. Beyond purely artistic interest, this exhibition should be read as a desire to converse with artists to whom we feel connected in different ways, to share this 'visual' conversation. Some works have a direct reference to creation, to process, to doing. Others, talk about the very nature of mankind or even to how men shape their world.

I Got You Under My Skin are those artists whose practice conquered, interests or fascinates us and was one day under our own skin. And it is also our need to share the discourse of their work. Because after all, we are also connected by the passions and conversations that we all carry under our skin.

I Got You Under My Skin is accessible from this link from 16th May at 5pm CEST | 12am ET | 12 pm HKT until 2nd June.
