Looking at that mother forced to gather her rags, her dreams, her hopes, her social and existential dramas, putting them in a container of luck and abandoning her own land, her own roots, her own nature and wandering the land to beg for a little work to support herself and her family. These are the stories of motherhood that I want to tell through sculpture, because these are the true, authentic functions that art today more than ever, is called to fulfill.

Vito Zaza introduces his latest work in this way, a series of 20 terracotta bas-reliefs dedicated to the theme of Motherhood.

"From Silence to Mystery: a journey into violated motherhood" is an exhibition of unpublished works, created between 2009 and 2012 with a profound social intent. The artist analyzes, starting from a journalistic article on the international network - Talità Kum ('Rise Up') - about Catholic nuns fighting against the trafficking of women forced into prostitution, the theme of Motherhood from a new perspective.

To enrich the exhibition, there are some black and white photographs by Roberto Lusito and two series of unpublished color drawings: "Fragments" (2014) and "Ruins" (2013), which represent a reflection on the life and career of the artist himself, retracing some iconographies he has used over decades of activity and recurring symbolism.

The exhibition is open from May 3 to September 8, 2024, with free admission in the new spaces attached to the Diocesan Museum of Molfetta.
