Armada presents “Maschile Romantico”, the first solo exhibition by Marco Pio Mucci. The show includes two sculptures that portray the artist himself. Mucci decided to let other people near him, to catch and shape him – from his body details to the choice of his clothes – for the production of the work. Free from referring to these works as self-portraits, Mucci reflects on the dualism between his private and public persona; in this loop of being “self-portrayed” Mucci tries to achieve the consciousness of his own image, within the paradox of giving a form to a view of the self, through the eyes of someone else.
