Elisabetta Benassi: Empire

Museo Nazionale Romano, Palazzo Altemps

20 Jun 201901 Sep 2019

The exhibition is the second stage of the project “Empire” by Elisabetta Benassi, winner of the third edition of the Italian Council (2018).

The project reflects the basic building element of ancient architecture, the Roman brick, transforming it into an element with new aesthetic potential and meaning, constitutive of a site-specific installation made of six thousand terracotta bricks impressed with the inscription that entitles the work.
