Montezuma Fontana Mirko: Scultura in Mosaico dalle Origini a Oggi.

MAR

Marcelo de Melo du Brazil était mon artist en résidence en mai. Il avait été invité à exposer son oeuvre pour la grande exposition au Mar sur l’histoire de la sculpture.

Marcelo de Melo from Brazil was my artist in residence in May and he was invited to exhibit his work during the exhibition at the MAR on the history of sculpture…here is his words about the exhibition:

Corpo Musivo Ravennate is finally revealed to the public

In May 2017, by invitation and sponsorship of Suzanne Spahi, I had the opportunity to work in Ravenna as an artist in residence. For the first time in my career, I produced a sculpture specially for an exhibition at the Museo d’Arte della Città di Ravenna (MAR). The invitation by Suzanne coincided with the invitation received from the MAR by the curators Alfonso Panzetta and Daniele Torcellini. I was asked by them to supply an exhibit from my series Corpos Musivos. As coincidences such as these do not present themselves very often, I took the liberty to produce a work inspired by Ravenna itself in line with the conceptual framework of my original series. After three weeks of relentless work, my sculpture Corpo Musivo Ravennate was completed, and I was very happy with the result. I also felt that it was a big deal for me to exhibit alongside Lucio Fontana, Mirko Basaldella and many other talented artists. For that reason, I decided to keep the work hidden from view for several months. The work was stored at the MAR and finally revealed to the public on the 6th of October at the opening of the exhibition Montezuma Fontana Mirko: Scultura in Mosaico dalle Origini a Oggi. My Corpo Musivo Ravennate is a unique sculpture in the context of the exhibition, as it desecrates the medium of mosaic by denying its decorative and ornamental aspects combined with references to religious iconography and science fiction. By breaking with the decorative paradigm of mosaic art, my sculpture offers a new expressive potential to the medium and generate new interpretative pathways.
