My new video installation Fragile - Handle with Care
commissioned by MAXXI, the museum of contemporary art in Rome and the Soprintendenza Archeologica Belle Arti and Paesaggio delle Marche for the project 'Terre in Movimento' will be on show in the MAXXI from the 11th of May.
A year ago I was asked, together with the Italian photographers Olivo Barbieri and Paola de Pietri, to make a work about the landscapes, the artworks, the ruins and the people of the areas who were affected by the earthquakes that took place in 2016 in the Marche. The project is also documented in a catalogue published by Quodlibet.
Historian and journalist Raymond van den Boogaard wrote a beautiful article about Fragile - Handle with Care
and he published it on his blog
My short film Il Grande Cretto di Gibellina
will be part of the exhibition 'La Ferita Della Bellezza. Burri e Il Grande Cretto di Gibellina' in Museo Carlo Bilotti in Rome. The exhibition curated by Alessandro Sarteanesi and Massimo Recalcati will open on the 22nd of March. The film will also be screened on April 7th at the Munich Film Museum.
On the 13th of October Melanie van der Hoorn presented her book Spots in Shots. Narrating the Built Environment in Short Films
at the Architecture Film Festival Rotterdam. In this book she also wrote a very nice article
about my first short film La Madre, il Figlio e l'Architetto
