An Exhibition That Toured the World

Follow the itinerary of CICATRICI

Details of the exhibition (2018)Fondazione Near Onlus

Forty-two statues, forty-two stories. Many more, actually, because every story becomes everyone's story. And every scar becomes everyone's scar.

Each statue is placed on a black plinth, which bears the title of the work and a descriptive text written by the author, anonymously. A labyrinth of statues and plinths, which ends with a wall of faces, portraits, with a mirror in the middle that reminds each visitor that he is also part of the exhibition.

Gradually each statue was discovered by visitors, who immersed themselves in the stories and tales, finding parts of themselves, family stories, emotions and desires.

As well as at the Triennale, meetings with urban and neighborhood realities were also organized at the Galleria d'Arte Moderna in Catania during the opening days of the exhibition, to learn not only about human scars but also to explore those of the territory.
