Opening in Rome at Palazzo Altemps on October 7th, La Forza delle Rovine is an exhibition, curated by Marcello Barbanera and Alessandra Capodiferro focuses on the “Ruins” (see more below). Together with other artists I have in exhibition “Il Teatro di Consagra, Gibellina” from “Suspended”. The exhibit will run trough January 31st 2016.
The initial contact should be with the ruins of the modern world, with disconcerting ruins. The idea to start from a contemporary event that has created ruins (the earthquake In L’Aquila?) and then continue with about ten sections organized by theme rather then date. Each section will host different materials and offers a diachronic vision of the theme tackled, sometimes starting from artifacts already in the museum. The idea is that the visitor should immediately grasp the subject, comparing with a recent experience, and then reflect on it from an historical point of view.
