The exhibition is curated by Lorenzo Balbi with Dublin’s Kerlin Gallery and it is based on the show “Sean Scully: Passenger – A Retrospective“, curated by Dávid Fehér. It arrives in Bologna in a renewed version. Both a wide knowledge of the works by old and contemporary masters and a singular sensibility in obtaining visual and emotional suggestions from actual reality equally converge into Scully’s art.
The exhibition in Bologna, with 68 exhibited works (oil paintings, acrylics, watercolors, drawings and a monumental sculpture), aims at highlighting the continuous dialogue between these two essential components of the artist’s work, by retracing over 50 years of creative experience. From the first figurative experiments in the ‘60s and the minimalist works in the ‘70s, to the current work, “A Wound in a Dance with Love” documents the most important developments of a practice which is always consistent with its assumptions but is also capable of changing significantly over time, in relation with emotional experiences and existential evolutions, affections and sorrows.
