Scenic exhibition project dedicated to the animal world: a bestiary depicted by the artist Manuel Felisi on large wooden panels placed in dialogue with the nearby Bioparco, the oldest zoo in Italy.

The Carlo Bilotti Museum is the ideal venue to host the artist's project: the collaboration with the Bioparco Foundation of Rome also allows you to observe live some of the animals portrayed by the artist and protected inside to make further study of nature possible of the species.

1:1, as the title suggests, features 80 life-size works on display, created with the hybrid painting technique - Felisi's signature style - which has always practiced an art of mixing techniques and languages, traditional ways and technological innovation, finding the key to his research in versatility. Felisi tries his hand at representing the animal kingdom for the first time, which he sees together with two-dimensional works, some works removed from static nature through digital animation obtained with digital art interventions.

The exhibition was born in the artist's soul during the first lockdown, in the spring of 2020. In a dramatic period like that of Covid and forced stasis, some photos of animals taken by Felisi during a trip to Senegal suggested a reflection on the dangers that animal species are facing due to the degradation of their natural habitat. Through the mediation of art, Felisi thus creates the idea of an enchanted garden that can protect animals from any danger. The obvious reference is to the biblical Ark. Each Ark is made of wood and the one created by Felisi is no exception, which is why she uses large wooden planks for the works on display. There is no shortage of references to the Contemporary. In particular, the "Bestiary" created by Andrea Pazienza, a collection of drawings, sketches and illustrations by the well-known cartoonist dedicated to the animal world and to the creations for children created by Bruno Munari, in which the shapes of animals play a key role.
