The show

The French Academy in Rome - Villa Medici is happy to present the exhibition I Peccati by Johan Creten.

Precursor, unclassifiable and countercurrent, Johan Creten is a sculptor artist who has distinguished himself as a strong, enigmatic and intriguing figure in the artistic landscape of recent years.

With an extremely current vision of our society, he has been able to carve out a singular space within the international scene of contemporary creation.

For this exhibition, a collection of fifty five works in bronze, ceramic and resin was assembled, juxtaposed with some historical works by Luca Van Leyden (1494-1533). Hans Baldung (1484-1545), Jacques Callot (1592-1635) and Barthel Beham (1502-1540).

The exhibition offers an exploration of the world with all its individual and corporate torments, through a path full of surprises and emotions.

For the first time, Johan Creten's work is presented in Italy in such a broad way.
