closed Flavio Favelli Interior with Marbles

The show

Interno con Marmi is the work of Flavio Favelli presented for the ninth appointment of Sensitive Meetings , the focus exhibitions that place ancient and contemporary art in dialogue.

The installation, curated by Angela Tecce and Sylvain Bellenger, with the collaboration of Luciana Berti, was conceived in relation to the Ciborium, built between 1619 and 1623, based on a project by Cosimo Fanzago to contain the Blessed Sacrament in the church of Santa Patrizia in Naples. A real miniature architecture, embellished by the marble salesman technique that imitates plant shoots, vases with flowers and birds, a monumental Neapolitan baroque tabernacle in gilded bronze, gilded copper, polychrome marbles and semi-precious stones (jasper, amethyst, agate, lapis lazuli).

A dialogue that is not limited to the tabernacle but also extends to the other works exhibited in the exhibition “ Beyond Caravaggio. A new tale of painting in Naples ”, curated by Stefano Causa and Patrizia Piscitello.

Interno con Marmi is made up of materials of various origins, marble and wood, which evoke the domestic environments of Italian bourgeois houses. The work produces an ambiguous and unstable space, played on a few homogeneous colors, with blind spots and narrow spaces, resulting in strong contrast with the symmetry and preciousness of the Ciborium, an expression of the Neapolitan Baroque. Like a monument on a pedestal, Favelli's work brings together fragments of personal and collective memories. At the same time, it compares two aesthetic and cultural models, both devoted to preserving an unknowable mystery.

Travel memories on which an imaginary linked to the Italian province is grafted, which remains a constant cultural reference in Favelli 's poetics.
