Mariella Simoni. 1975 – 2018

“Mariella Simoni is a prophetic artist, a painter of infinite movement and consoling thought. At a time when the world seems to be collapsing on all sides, her work rises up before us and gently holds the gaze before the final horizon” Denys Zacharopoulos

The exhibition opening on September 28 at 5.30 pm to Villa delle Rose, Bologna

(Open to the public from September 29 until November 11 – 2018)

With Mariella Simoni. 1975 – 2018, Villa delle Rose stays faithful to its new exhibition philosophy based, since 2018, on international positioning and projects. Thanks to the work of curator Barbara Vanderlinden, the exhibition re-discovers and re-interprets the almost forty-year-long career of an important Italian artist, who has always used her being open to the world and her nomadic attitude as main personal and artistic signature style.

The exposure, that creates a unique dialogue between the installations and the both large and small paintings from different periods, which is based on special affinities and not on chronology, underscores some artist’s recurrent themes: mind, psychology, the issue of “self”, psychology, subjectivity in relation different forms of expression.
