about.

The ADRIAN TRANQUILLI exhibition takes place simultaneously in two locations: in a gallery, the space designated for, and open to, the presentation of contemporary art; and at the Oratorio dei Filippini, a space designed by Borromini, rich in history and meaning, and chosen specifically to encourage reflection on the idea of the sacred, somewhere between the traditional and the contemporary.

Adrian Tranquilli‘s practice aims to identify a language that takes as its point of departure a series of objects often associated, in our culture, with the “female” world. Charged with symbolic value, these objects (roses, fans, lace and fringes) are removed from their context and manipulated in such a way as to make their use and abuse by different forms of power painfully clear – most notably in the case of religion.

Freed from the meanings that have accumulated over time, Tranquilli raises these objects to a new level of awareness, which is only the beginning of an as yet unknown journey. Therein why all the pieces are given the same title by the artist: “untitled”. The common denominator behind this recent work is the use of a variety of containers which undergo an internal transformation, and are thus driven by the very objects they contain to embrace and appropriate the space outside of them.

The sculpture presented at the Oratorio is a cylindrical structure of 6 m. high and 4 m. in diameter, split into seven sections, each of which includes a metal artwork on paper decorated with mixed media. Display cabinets of varying dimensions are exhibited at the STUDIO STEFANIA MISCETTI.

An exhibition catalogue will be published featuring a critical essay by Ida Magli and an interview with the artist by Ludovico Pratesi.
