The Italian Cultural Institute in Osaka presents works by Adele Ceraudo as part of the group exhibition “Opera Unica - Opere di quattro artisti da Milano” that introduces works by four Milan-based artists. The exhibition is an official program of the institute’s “Milano Genius 2019” to promote the cultural exchanges between the sister cities Osaka and Milan.
Ceraudo’s Bic pen drawing “Vitruvian Woman” from her series of “The elective affinities” (Rome 2011/2013) reinterprets Leonardo da Vinci’s icon key “Vitruvian Man,” in order to give once again voice and strength to women, making them protagonists in the ancient art, too.
Born in Cosenza in Calabria, Italy, Ceraudo has been active creating artworks in Rome and is now based in Milan. She always emphasizes the figure of the woman in her art, a woman of which she describes all the features, both those related to joy, positivity and seduction, up to the more tragic aspects related to violence and pain.
The exhibition will take place at Spazio Arte, the Italian Cultural Institute, Osaka (Nakanoshima Festival Tower 17F, 2-3-18 Nakanoshima, Kita-ku, OsakaAddress; 大阪市北区中之島2-3-18 中之島フェスティバルタワー17階)
