Fausta Squatriti: Opera al Nero

San Bernardino alle Ossa, Piazza s. Stefano, 1022, Milan, Italy

Fausta Squatriti Archive in collaboration with the Galleria Bianconi present the site-specific project titled “Opera al Nero” by Fausta Squastriti at Santuario di San Bernardino alle Ossa in Milan.

The project, curated by the art historian Elisabetta Longari and hosted by Monsignor Luca Bressan (Vicario Episcopale per la Cultura – Diocesi di Milano) aims at making people meditate on the value of the sacred and the memento mori by means of a relational short-circuit between the place and the artist’s contemporary practice.

In the Ossuary tibias, femurs and skulls become elements of decorations and friezes in which the macabre and the beauty are merged all into one.vIn the same way Fausta Squatriti uses this iconography and the symbolic structures of Christian art, combined with the elements of our everyday life, to denounce the sorrow and the pain generated by humanity and at the same time its redemption obtained through absolute values like Beauty and Art.

The exhibition will open on September 14th, a date which coincides with the religious holiday of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. The show will unfold through 13 works by Fausta Squatriti, all focusing on the symbology of the Cross, that will accompany the public towards its highest inside the Ossuary.
