“Back to Nature” at Villa Borghese
“Back to Nature” at Villa Borghese, it will be possible to visit this exhibition of contemporary art in the beautiful gardens of Villa Borghese. This exhibition created in the beautiful gardens of the capital was curated by Costantino D’Orazio. Until December 13th it will be possible to see this fusion between art and nature. In the beautiful boulevards, hedges and paths of Villa Borghese you can immerse yourself in contemporary art.
From the bronze buffalo of Davide Rivalta, to the double Igloo of Mario Merz, with the deer showing the Fibonacci sequence. It will also be possible to admire ten flags by Mimmo Paladino or the Etherea by Edoardo Tresoldi, a transparent and “habitable” sculpture 11 meters high.
Actually the exhibition was supposed to have been realized a year ago, then as we all know the pandemic took over. And for this reason the exhibition has been moved until now. In particular, the exhibition inside Villa Borghese is located in the areas of the Parco dei Daini and Piazza di Siena, as well as the Carlo Bilotti Museum, the Casa del Cinema and the Pietro Canonica Museum.
Here are the words of the curator Costantino D’Orazio “It is an experimental initiative for Villa Borghese. But, in absolute terms, a project so coordinated and thought out had never been realized before. We have involved ten artists who have nothing in common between them, just as nothing links their works. Rather, we chose them on the basis of their sensitivity, personal path and how much they could come into contact with the Villa”.
Among the works in the exhibition there are also the Red Map by Grazia Toderi, a night video installation curated by Alessandra Mammì. The Yarn bombing, knitted sculptures from the Aracne Academy that color the trunks of trees. Wing Project curated by Andrea Mauti, of the giant wings. And finally at the Casa del Cinema, Vitriol by Nico Vascellari, a video work of strong emotional impact, in a “blind” flight over the Cansiglio Forest in Veneto.
Finally, the exhibition has free admission and is the first project coordinated with contemporary art installations as part of a strategy to enhance the historic parks of the capital.
