The show

The world-famous Belgian artist Jan Fabre returns to Naples with a new project involving four places of great prestige: the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte, the church of the Pio Monte della Misericordia, the Madre Museum and the Studio Trisorio gallery. Tuesday 26 March at 11.30 am at the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte (second floor) the press conference in the presence of the artist and the heads of the bodies involved with a visit to the exhibition.
At the Museum and Real Bosco di Capodimonte, the artist will exhibit a group of works in dialogue with a special selection of works of art from the museum's permanent collection and from other Neapolitan museum institutions. The exhibition, entitled "Oro Rosso. Sculptures of gold and coral, drawings of blood", curated by Stefano Causa together with Blandine Gwizdala, will open on March 30th and will see gold sculptures and blood drawings created by the artist from the seventies to the present, as well as a new and surprising series of sculptures in red coral, made specifically for Capodimonte.
On display, the golden sculptures by Jan Fabre give precious body to the artist's ideas on creation, art and its relationship with the great masters of the past. In the drawings of blood instead we find the deepest motivations of the artist, his experiments, his poetic, physical and intimate manifesto. "The blood today is gold" - says Jan Fabre - and in the exhibition at the Capodimonte Museum the artist stages an entire universe of symbols that speak of art and beauty, of strength and fragility of the human race, of the cycle continuous vitamorte-rebirth. The coral was called "red gold", due to its preciousness and its apotropaic value.
