ongoing Viron Erol Vert

The show

Viron Erol Vert uses the pavilion in the garden of the Villa as a luminous relationship space. The glass facades are covered with 32 different colored sheets, inside six geometric bodies act as contact organs and as many fans let velvet ribbons flutter. On them there are written quotes from Lucretius's "De Rerum Natura". Viron Erol Vert read this book during his stay in Florence in 2018. Written in the 1st century BC, this six-volume "doctrinal poem" is a critical religious text on the construction of society and culture in a world of atoms. Viron Erol Vert takes up the impulse of the Roman poet and philosopher to contrast the "calm of the mind" with fear and creates a minimalist space for it.

In recent years, Viron Erol Vert has created several impressive and hallucinatory escape spaces, starting with the 2017 "Dreamatory '" in Berlin, the "Ambereum" at the Riga Biennale (RIBOCA) in 2018 and finally the Roskilde Festival in Denmark in 2019. They are all spaces that filter the outside world, create quiet areas for meditation, reflection and encounters. In six evenings during the months of MANIFESTIAMO (May-July), the pavilion of Villa Romana will give space to concerts, poetry readings, listening sections and performances.

Viron Erol Vert is a visual artist living between Berlin, Athens and Istanbul. His personal cultural imprint between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean is reflected in all of his works, which are inspired by family narratives, scientific and religious texts and multi-cultural identities. In 2018, he lived in Florence as the winner of the Villa Romana Award.
