Romamor
curated by Chiara Parisi
French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici
1 March – 5 May 2019
official opening 28 February 2019 at 7 pm

The exhibition “Romamor” is the first solo in Italy by Anne & Patrick Poirier. The French couple is part of the generation of artists who began traveling and taking in the world in the 1970s, they became fascinated by ancient cities and settlements, and more especially by the process of their disappearance. Out of this distinctive sensibility emerged mysterious cities, imaginary archeological recreations, a passion for ruins, investigations of the nature of gardens, and a blending of historical works and site-specific creations. These are the sources for the exhibition at the Villa Medici in Rome.
