Ida Barbarigo: Herms and Saturns

Palazzo Fortuny

19 Dec 201513 Mar 2016

The descendant of an illustrious family of artists, present in Venice for more than three centuries, Ida Barbarigo presents a selection of works from two series made over two decades, between 1980 and the end of the 1990s, at Palazzo Fortuny, in an exhibition curated by Daniela Ferretti.

The Herms and Saturns are the enigmatic witnesses of a complex development undertaken by the artist through painting. The canvas, colours, acids, brushes, punches are simple tools through which her vision takes shape, revealing itself in the material nature of the work.

Seductive and enigmatic, with simplicity Ida loves to recount her constant and passionate commitment to painting, as emerges perfectly in the splendid essay by Luca Massimo Barbero published in the exhibition catalogue.

Born in Venice in 1920 – her mother, Livia Tivoli, was a painter and poet, her father, the painter Guido Cadorin – Ida continues the humanist tradition of a family in which sculptors, architects, painters, scholars and writers have succeeded each other for centuries. In 1949, she married Zoran Music with whom she shared the passion for art. She lives and works in Venice.
