Panta Rei. Tutto Si Trasforma, an exhibition featuring marble and ceramic sculptures is on display at the Museo Civico del Marmo di Carrara through February 20th 2015. The exhibition creates a dialogue between the permanent collection of the Marble Museum of Carrara, the custom-made artworks produced by the DATABASE 2014 residents, and the works on loan from the Carlo Zauli Museum of Faenza, which were produced during the 2014 Artist Residency Program – Ceramics in Contemporary Art, in collaboration with DOCVA Via Farini (Milan) and Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa (Venice), under direction of Matteo Zauli.

The encounter between Carrara and Faenza, between marble and ceramics, is carried out through the experiences of artists who are not originally from these cities, but who have been inspired by the local history and traditions. It is also an opportunity for citizens to get a new perspective of their own heritage through the language of sculpture, as explored from a variety of means.

To begin the recommendation process to identify artists for the DATABASE program, Federica Forti called upon a group of critics and curators — Cecilia Canziani and Ilaria Gianni, Samuele Menin and Francesca Cattoi, Chiara Camoni and Silvia Vendramel — who have been working in the field of sculpture. Three proposals, by the artists Mattia Bosco, Ludovica Carbotta, and Sergio Breviario, were selected among the nine research projects designed specifically for Carrara.

The Carlo Zauli Museum was involved for the same purpose: along with a number of other significant institutions in the field of contemporary art in Italy, the museum invited its residents of XI Residenza d’Artista Edizione 2014_Ceramica nell’Arte Contemporanea to focus their work on sculpture. The Anemoi (in collaboration with Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa di Venezia), the group composed by Marco Basta, Alessandro Di Pietro, Michele Gabriele, Andrea Romano, Jonathan Vivacqua (in collaboration with Via Farini Docva), as well as the duo Natasha Fenoglio + PatrickTuttofuoco are the artists who tackled the techniques and expressive mediums of ceramics.
