ongoing MAURIZIO PELLEGRIN

The show

The dialogue between modern art and voices of the present is expressed at Ca' Pesaro also on the occasion of the major exhibition dedicated to the nineteenth-century Venetian portrait, with the contemporary gaze of a great interpreter of our time, Maurizio Pellegrin. Born in Venice in 1956 and resident in New York, Pellegrin divides an exhibition into two parts: the work The Others, composed of more than one hundred portraits from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with the insertion of objects and fabrics, where the human presence appears , not always immediately declared or perceptible.


They are works that in a certain way constitute his ideal self-portrait. The first room presents the artist's reflections on his identity and vision of himself and his own history. The imaginary self-portraits of Pellegrin's head taken in profile alternate with representations of the city of origin, Venice, displayed together with eyes and faces of other memories that emerge from the drawings and notes of the past (104 Eyes and 1 Black Dot, 2011 and Drawings 1984 -2002) While focusing on memory, the work is not a sort of reliquary used solely for the function of memory or historical investigation. The components are the pretext for a new condition of communication; the past thus becomes a reserve of energy that finds its expression in movement and vibration. Displayed together with the portraits are the objects from Memories (The Corsets), a 2021 work that suggests figures and portraits through the signs of the physical and intimate presence of the body.
