Inspired by Rome’s collision of the eternal and contemporary, found porcelain figurines are recontextualized and recycled. Their superficial nature is obscured, and when inserted into settings reminiscent of decay and rubble, historical fashions become familiar, yet alien. Placed onto remote-controlled Arduino platforms and driven in the street gives the figurines life beyond their mass-produced, static origins and reinserts them into the life of the city.
Paolo Porelli: Recent Works
The exhibition presents a selection of works produced by the artist and co-founder of C.R.E.T.A. Rome Paolo Porelli in 2017 in Italy and during an artist residency in Jingdezhen, China.
