Castello di Rivoli

Collezionismo a Torino, is a show with the catalogue by Charta curated by Ida Giannelli. It was a  big show at the  museum of contemporary art  Castello di Rivoli, Turin Italy. The  show was about collectors from the city of Turin,  focusing on their cultural choices. I had a piece in the collection of Corrado Levi from the group of paintings Stelle, a starry pattern about the Galla Placidia byzantine mosaic in Ravenna, Italy. The show opened Feb. 15, 1996.



the Nineties

In the nineties I was  in Italy and did many group and solo shows with other young artists. It is a long list and I ‘d rather remember those shows, which really added some special experience to my art. In 1990 I was invited by curator Martina Corgnati to hang one of my piece in the group show Intercity2, at the foundation of  Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice. I  proposed a row from my project simply called Flags: A work  on paper conceived after the revolt in Romania in 1989. The Romanian flag had the three fundamental colors: red, blue and yellow with  the  communism symbol in the middle. Like in a child game, I cut out  sheets of vellum paper leaving a hole in each pattern in each flag. The same work will be part of my solo show at  the galleria Buades in Madrid, Spain, July 1990. You can see a review of this show on  ABC .

In 1996 one of my painting of cm 200 x 200 of a group titled Stelle was exhibited in the show Collezionismo a Torino at Castello di Rivoli with the catalogue curated by Ida Giannelli and published by Charta.  This painting was showed among others in  Corrado Levi collection. My work was about the Mausoleum of Gallaplacidia in Ravenna Italy, where a beautiful Byzantine mosaic gave me the grid, where i  replaced stars with tennis balls. Stelle was also exhibited in two shows  at the  Buades gallery in Madrid, Spain and at the Massimo Minini gallery, Brescia, Italy.  See the review of this group show on Tema Celeste, July – October, 1990.
