My upcoming solo exhibition – “Colors Of An Apocalypse 2015″ – will take place in the amazing Romanesque Baptistery on Lake Como, Italy, on July 3-4-5, in the beautiful Lenno town.
The Baptistery stands 50 meters from the lake shore and it’s considered one of the most stunning examples of Romanesque art in Northen Italy. Dedicated to St. John (The Baptist) it was built in the 11th Century. Its octagonal structure looks incredibly simple and essential: we see a squared bell tower and an apse pointed to north. The vault, the portal with three archs, fragments of medieval frescos and a baroque pictorial cycle are other interesting elements of the temple.
The octagonal Baptistery and its enchanting structure will give strenght and evocative power to my exhibition which will show 25 works from my “Lacer/actions” project, included 3 silk scarves (limited edition) I created in collaboration with textiles designer Bruno Boggia and his Studio in Como. Each artwork will be introduced by a phrase from “The Apocalypse of John”. Images and words to suggest a trip through hopes and tragedies of human life and beings.
