 REFUGIOS, Antonio Girbés -  Agora

Refugios, Antonio Girbés

Topics: 

As part of the cultural activities of Benedicti Claustra Onlus and in conjunction with the 2016  Biennale of Architecture in Venice, in the Officina dell'Arte Spirituale exhibition space at the  Abbey of San Giorgio Maggiore, Spanish artist Antonio Girbes presents Refugios et Misericordia.

Refugios  is  the  brainchild  of “Delirious  city”,  a  series  of  works  from  2006  in  which  the  artist brought together photographic  images of  buildings  by renowned architects  in  several places  in the world.

This exhibition includes a disturbing new development in the work of Antonio Girbés, it is the site specific  installation  Refugios et Misericordia (mercy).  This  artwork  is made  up  of  64  faces  wandering through the  Abbey  of  San  Giorgio  Maggiore  as  if  they  were Pirandello  characters  in  search  of  an author, although in this case their search was focused on a refuge in which to take shelter.

Date: 
Repeats every week every Tuesday and every Wednesday and every Thursday and every Friday and every Saturday and every Sunday until Wed Aug 31 2016 . Also includes Mon May 30 2016.
