closed Enzo Cucchi

The show

Enzo Cucchi (Morro d'Alba, 1949), one of the most influential figures on the contemporary art scene, presents a new project designed specifically for the spaces of the Gian Ferrari Gallery at MAXXI, the National Museum of 21st Century Arts. An extraordinary inventor of powerful and enigmatic images, the artist's research incorporates dreamlike visions, mystical and religious popular culture of his homeland and art history (Cubist Animal of the 1900s), with explicit references to classical literature and mythology, which translates into an aesthetic that ranges between time and history, thus synthesising individual myths and collective imagination. Enzo Cucchi proposes a single work on display: a radical gesture in his rarefaction of a single object, of modest dimensions in relation to the architecture of space designed by Zaha Hadid, exhibited on a base that itself becomes an integral part of the work. An even more radical gesture is that of the marble sculpture, because it is underlined by other interventions in the gallery that serve as thresholds, notes, corollary Insignia [Signs] and which thus reaffirm the uniqueness and centrality of the work.
