MATTER. The origin of creation

Museo Piaggio
Start date: 
End date: 

On Friday 9th September at 6.30 p.m. the Piaggio Museum will open the exhibition MATTER. The origin of creation by artist Enrico Bacci.

One of the issues chosen by the Piaggio Foundation this year to celebrate the Vespa’s 70th anniversary  is that of Woman and of her emancipation, also through the use of the Vespa.

From 9th September to 9th October 2016 Enrico Bacci’s exhibition places itself in this context with over 40 works including collages, paintings, and sculptures dedicated to the female universe.

Bacci always starts from pieces of paper ripped from billboards. This “de-structuring” of works otherwise destined to oblivion changes little by little, and is recreated into a collage with the addition of colors and scraps of maps, a mixture of paintings and paper that turns into a work with new contents, which is elevated by his artistic sensitivity, and is extremely surprising.

Portraits, landscapes, and abstract visions of great aesthetic and chromatic pleasantness are created, and lead to new social perspectives and considerations.

His works are in public and private collections all over the world, including Barack and Michelle Obama’s library at the White House.
