ROBERTO GOFFI, La Casa di Carol

“Carol Rama lives in a house that is no longer a house but a museum. A house blackened by time, of velvety blackness that only smoke can bestow, restoring the depth of bottomless abysses and the receptacles of ghosts; a labyrinthine house of represented and crystallised stories, sealed around the memories, the encounters, the loves…”
Roberto Goffi, 2003

The black and white shots of the Carol Rama’s home-studio taken by Roberto Goffi are now on show in the large retrospective exhibition dedicated by Studio la Città to the Turin artist (1918-2015), and partly reproduced in the catalog published by Silvana Editoriale.
