Katharina Grosse | The many irregularities
Villa Medici, Rome, Italy | 2.2.–29.4.2018
As part of the UNE exhibition cycle devoted to contemporary feminine talent, the Académie de France in Rome offers an unprecedented dialogue between artists Tatiana Trouvé and Katharina Grosse , curated by Chiara Parisi . The many irregularities proposes a joint reflection between the two visual artists on the history of Villa Medici through a versatile approach involving sculpture, painting and installation. Their works are radically different but complementary, revealing a shared desire to push the traditional boundaries between media. Both artists are fascinated by the unstable relationship between inner and outer space, between the past and the present of Villa Medici.
