gloria mundi, solo exhibition of laura zicari

from February 23rd to April 5th

curator Daniele Capra


The transient success of men and the love of the Roman Church hierarchies for customs and rituals. The presence of the death in our lives and the divine disregards of the Vatican ministers’ glittering robes. Laura Zicari’s baroque paintings explode on paper, fabric, silk and pieces of garments.  For her first solo exhibition after the second prize at the Villa Manin Arte Contemporanea painting contest, the artist will present at Studio Tommaseo her latest and fascinating works, based on a visual and anthropological analysis of the high places of the clergy. Bishops and cardinals, preciously dressed in their velvet robes and head gear, now seem to be attracted mainly by  eternal richness and the grandiosity of the temporal world.

opening: Saturday 23rd February, 6.30pm

with the participation of Casa dell’Arte and Trieste Contemporanea
