From 4 to 14 September 2020 the artist will participate in the International exhibition of contemporary art – GENESIS” at the prestigious and suggestive location of the Bellini Museum in Florence.
The term “Genesis” of Greek derivation embodies our concept of birth. The central node of an exhibition that leads the artists to reflect on themes ranging from the biblical creation of the world to the physical and spiritual rebirth of each of us. Sculpture, painting, photography, each form of art participates in the dialogue of artists in a time, our contemporary, in which speed and immediacy have taken the place of reflection on our everyday life, on our origins, while a new set of values and ideas is necessary to regain possession of the present.
