curata da Treti Galaxie
June 29 - 10 September 2019
Borgo Pinti 84/R, Firenze
Treti Galaxie, hosted by VEDA, is proud to present the solo show of Giuliana Rosso “Only now, lost, they become real to me”.
Through a painting style made with fragile materials such as spolvero paper, chalks, charcoal and papier-mâché, Giuliana Rosso creates a composite installation that celebrates the fragility of the individual through a contemporary reinterpretation of universal themes related to art history and popular culture.
In the show, a painted and flipped over vault takes the place of the gallery floor, collapsed during the 1966 flood of the Arno. The intervention looks like the image of an ideal frescoed ceiling reflected on the surface of the water that once flooded the space. The overturning also affects the subject of the painting, which concerns a particular interpretation of the Assumption.
*The exhibition is entirely made of biodegradable materials and can be 100% recycled.
