VEGLIA

MUSEO RISO - CAPPELLA DELL'INCORONAZIONE, PALERMO - 2018

 

According to the exhibition planning of the RISO museum in Palermo, Bizhan Bassiri ”Wake”, 2018, and ”Celestial Body” 1993-2016 plastic works’ exhibitions will start on Friday 26, January 2018, at 6.00pm, both under Bruno Corà supervision.
 
Bassiri, Italian Persian artist that represented Iran with a big plastic installation during the 57° internetional biennal in Venice, thanks to this two different exhibitions, arrives in the Sicilian chief town, at Palazzo Belmonte Riso and at Cappella dell’Incoronazione, with two unprecedented visionary narrations. With ”Wake”, 2018, Bassiri establishes at Riso‘s first floor an epic dramaturgy, a solemn ‘Sarcophagus’ in front of a ”Battle”, 2014; with ”Celestial Body” 1993-2016 mekes people ask an implicit question about where can an elaborated surface made of papier-mache and different techniques arrive from. Erected in the room, it is obscure and enigmatic, neither the steel ”Candle holders”,1998, with their lights, can reduce its disturbing presence.
