Ludovica Carbotta: Very Well, on My Own

MAMbo, Museo d’arte moderna di Bologna, Via Don Giovanni Minzoni, 14

Ludovica Carbotta. Very Well, on My Own is a project realised thanks to the support of the Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea of the Ministry of Culture within the framework of the Italian Council (11th edition, 2022), the programme for the international promotion of Italian contemporary art.

The first anthological exhibition dedicated to the artist Ludovica Carbotta (Turin, 1982) in Italy is based on an exploration of individuality and the relationship with public space, both in the tangible sense of the city and in the abstract and infrastructural sense of the institution. The title, Very Well, on My Own, refers to a specific notion of privacy and individuality in which everyone seeks refuge from the intrusion of the outside world and their own psyche. In a world characterised by the overexposure of our subjectivities, which are daily associated with the concepts of ‘performance’ and ‘visibility’, the exhibition proposes a different stance, in which the person and his or her care become generative on both a subjective and collective level.

Throughout her artistic career, Ludovica Carbotta has observed the ways in which cities define our field of action, performing real physical exercises herself in an attempt to destabilise the usual proxemics of the inhabitant and to design new choreographies of the body within the urban environment. Over the years, this investigation has been extended to an imaginary and narrative level, articulating itself in complex systems of works that prefigure dystopian and futuristic images of the urban fabric and that pose a reflection on the potential and risks of a radicalisation of individuality within society.
