Fausta Squatriti “Opera al nero”
A site-specific project by Fausta Squatriti that aims to make us reflect on the value of the sacred and the memento mori through a relational short-circuit between the venue and her artistic practice.
The exhibition starts from the church, where there is a large iron cross and a diptych, and continues in the ossuary where the works quietly dialogue with the existing furnishings. In the ossuary chapel there is a series of drawings created for this exhibition. The title of the exhibition “Opera al nero” is not only a quotation, but also the title of a cycle of works dedicated to Marguerite Yourcenar that Fausta Squatriti created in 2009.
