The monographic exhibition by Italian artist Christian Fogarolli highlights the blurred barriers between contemporary art and the scientific field. Hosted at Musée d’Histoire de la Médecine in Paris and organised by the Galerie Alberta Pane among the others, “Monomania” features a selection of works by the artist which perfectly dialogue with the medical instruments on display from the historic permanent collection donated to the museum by the Faculty of Medicine’s deans and professors over the years. The exhibition culminates on a central site-specific piece, embodying the perfect continuum art-science.
Fogarolli’s research always focuses on the relationship between arts and science, in particular medicine, just as a “monomania”; this leitmotiv runs through all the aspects of his works, from the chosen media to their subjects to the artist’s scientific approach to creation. Featuring the Galerie Alberta Pane, Paris, among the organisers, the monographic exhibition invites visitors to embrace a new point of view on the surgical matter and the collective imaginary about it, through contemporary art.
