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:
Lisa Nocentini will be exhibiting her work in SACI’s Jules Maidoff Gallery: March 14 – April 5, 2013.
