NATHALIE DU PASQUIER
Campo di Marte
French artist and designer Nathalie Du Pasquier (Bordeaux, 1957) presents, in the context of SOLO/MULTI, her first major solo exhibition in an Italian museum. Titled Campo di Marte, the show is conceived as a Gesamtkunstwerk — a “silent symphony” in the artist’s words — that incorporates a body of about one hundred works made from the 1980s to the present.
Setting aside the traditional idea of a retrospective, the exhibition comes to terms with the vast size of the space, becoming a single, large, dynamic installation of multiple forms. Working on the walls as if they were immense canvases, the artist transforms the space into a unified scenario where visitors are encouraged to approach paintings, three-dimensional constructions, prints and drawings, juxtaposed according to various logical parameters.
