Romina De Novellis: Amami Alfredə

The Alberta Pane Gallery presents in its new Parisian space the fourth solo show of Romina De Novellis.

Alberta Pane, Paris, 47 Rue de Montmorency, 75003

The artist uses ecofeminist theories as a parameter to analyze and denounce the oppressive realities of our societies and the dichotomies of nature-humanity, femininity-masculinity, north-south, scientific-intuitive, powerbody, and establishment-counter-culture. She intends to highlight women’s and men’s reappropriation of feminine traits to challenge dominant models.

Curated by Marta Ponsa, this exhibition presents two projects: Luna Park (2018) and Del maiale non si butta via niente (2022). Through photography, video and installation, the works open a dialogue around the notions of control, surveillance and judgment that affect our perception of others, in particular females’ bodies and the marginalized.

The title of the exhibition refers to that of Act II of La Traviata by Giuseppe Verdi, entitled Amami Alfredo. The first name Alfredo becomes AlfredƏ with the “schwa” (used in Italian non-binary inclusive writing) and encompasses women, men, and people with a non-binary identity. Amami AlfredƏ is a call for love on behalf of all living beings, an imploration to love and be loved despite non-normativity, and a prayer to embrace queer and be proud of it.
