Ceramic Sculptures by Lisa Nocentini

Did you miss SACI’s Ceramics Instructor, Lisa Nocentini’s ceramic sculptures that were installed at the Palazzo Medici Riccardi last month?

The exhibition, curated by Alessandra Borsetti Venier, CORTEO BIZZARRO A PALAZZO — A TRIBUTE TO BENOZZO GOZZOLI featured two intallations of around 100 polychrome terracotta pieces. The first one, “Corteo bizzarro a palazzo”, which included 50 works varying in height, was conceived as a desecrating and irreverent parade of bizarre characters visiting Palazzo Medici Riccardi. It is a tribute to Benozzo Gozzoli and his “Cavalcata dei Magi”.

The second installation, “La Biblioteca di Babele” was inspired by the short story by Borges, and is a tribute to the Moreniana and Riccardiana libraries, both of which are part of Palazzo Medici Riccardi. It featured small polychrome terracotta  theaters, where characters are combined within surreal compositions.

A delight of wonders, dreams, poetry and absurdity…here are some images from the exhibition:
