Figura che divora se stessa

From 24 November 2022

Giulia Cenci joins the RETROFUTURE section, the collection of works by young Italian artists which grows organically with time.

Giulia Cenci presents the sculpture Figura che divora se stessa (2021). In her work, the artist combines natural and synthetic elements taken from everyday life to create hybrid figures, resulting from processes of transformation that reflect on the relationships between the technological, human, animal and plant worlds.
