A better view / A better layout / A better shower / Softer bed / Not so far from noise / More like home
Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro, Milano
During MIART and Milan Art Week, the Foundation presents a solo exhibition of Anna-Bella Papp (1988), a Romanian-born artist living in Antwerp, curated by Simone Menegoi.
Sophisticated and rigorous, Anna-Bella's work consists of unfired clay sculptures freely placed between abstraction and figuration, image and matter. In the Foundation, she will present a group of distinctly figurative works, all unpublished for Italy: reliefs inspired by the building workers and their tools, nearly metopes of a contemporary frieze. These works will be matched with more aniconic ones, in which you can still read elliptical references to architecture.
Anna-Bella Papp's exhibition renews the commitment made by the Foundation with the initiative of the Project Room, an observatory on the new generations of artists and on the changes in sculpture language, entrusted to the curatorship of Simone Menegoi throughout 2017.
