Oscuramento. The Wars of Fabio Mauri

Hauser & Wirth London, 23 Savile Row,
London W1S 2ET

Hauser & Wirth presents “Oscuramento. The Wars of Fabio Mauri”, an historical solo exhibition of works by Italian artist Fabio Mauri.

Organised with Olivier Renaud-Clément, this will be Mauri’s first solo show in London for over 20 years, and follows a significant presentation of his work at the Venice Biennale and Istanbul Biennial in 2015. Mauri’s practice spans performance, film, installation, found-object sculpture, mixed media works and theoretical writings to question readings of history and the associated power of language and ideology. ‘Oscuramento: The Wars of Fabio Mauri’ focuses on the series Picnic o Il buon soldato (Picnic or The Good Soldier), a sobering, direct and poetically reflective body of work that depicts the repercussions of conflict on collective cultural memory. The exhibition brings to light the political dimension of the image, as it is projected and proliferates throughout contemporary society.

This exhibition presents how Mauri explored the mechanisms of war through three distinctly separate approaches: the manifestation of political power, the private experiences of soldiers and citizens, and how events of war were expressed in the media.
