In front of the mirror. Female Transformations Between Self and Other

13/10 - 17/11/2013
Museo Pietro Canonica a Villa Borghese

The exhibition, which establishes a dialogue with the evocative atmosphere of Pietro Canonica's House Museum, aims to create a path in which visitors can grasp the nature and dimension of the female universe.

The works in the exhibition: sculptures, drawings, photographs, films (slides and video) and site-specific installations, highlight topics such as disappearance, decency and shame, uncertain identities or self non-acceptance, but also a different look at nature, at small things, at shadows and dreamlike fantasies.
