Andreco at Villa Borghese: Back to Nature

foto1

Andreco is one of the ten internationally renowned artists who are intervened in dialogue with each other and with the landscape of the Villa Borghese Park on the occasion of the Back to nature exhibition, a path of installations that, from 15 September to 13 December 2020, involves some corners of the ancient garden, the great green lung of Rome.

Back to Nature. Contemporary Art in Villa Borghese is an unpublished exhibition project curated by Costantino D’Orazio in the context of Romarama. The artists involved are united only by the sensitivity that inspired their works and the need to reflect in unison on the future and to build a new relationship with nature, beyond any artistic expressive difference.

Drops by Andreco consists of seven sculptures that trace the geometric shapes of the Secret Gardens of the Borghese Gallery, which take the form of a drop to distill reflections on the future of the world. He tells: “The group of sculptures, Drops, recalls the process of the fall of a drop of water and the alteration of the shape during that process. Villa Borghese has been designed with great attention to the water, towards the surface flows of the rainfall and the way in which it would channel towards the Tiber. Water is central for this work, which is meant to be a tribute to its importance for the city and for the life of the plants and the Villa.”

The open-air exhibition path is free to enter and can also be visited in the evening, illuminated until 1 am with periodic sound interventions. In addition, starting in the afternoon and at set times, each opera will be at the center of performances and musical performances.

Artists: Mario Merz, Mimmo Paladino, Edoardo Tresoldi, Nico Vascellari, Andreco, Benedetto Pietromarchi, Grazia Toderi, Wing Project, Davide Rivalta, Accademia Aracne
