closed Enzo Cucchi

The show

Enzo Cucchi (Morro d'Alba, 1949), one of the most influential figures on the contemporary art scene, extraordinary inventor of powerful and enigmatic images, presents a new project, created specifically for the spaces of the MAXXI National Museum of 21st Century Arts .

Cucchi's research incorporates dreamlike visions, mystical and religious popular culture of his homeland and art history, with explicit references to classical literature and mythology, and translates into an aesthetic that ranges between time and history. , thus synthesizing individual myths and collective imagination. Enzo Cucchi offers a single work on display: a radical gesture in its rarefaction of a single object, of modest dimensions in relation to the architecture of the space designed by Zaha Hadid, exhibited on a base that itself becomes an integral part of the work. An even more radical gesture, that of marble sculpture, because it is underlined by other interventions in the gallery - small oils on wood, an installation that welcomes the visitor on the entrance stairs - which act as thresholds, notes, Corollary signs and thus reaffirm the uniqueness and centrality of the work.
