My heart is empty like a mirror

Workshop with Gian Maria Tosatti. Participants in the round table: Giso Amendola, Alessandra Troncone and Nicolas Martino. Via degli Ausoni 7, RUFA Space – Thursday 14 October from 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm.

Gian Maria Tosatti, invited to hold a workshop with RUFA students, will be the protagonist of a round table in which he will present the latest stages of his work that have led him to carry out a series of interventions in Odessa and Istanbul.

My heart is empty like a mirror, the title of the art project, is an investigation into the crisis of democracy and the consequent disappearance of Western civilisation, born in the Athens of Pericles.

My heart is empty like a mirror

In 2018, Tosatti began a pilgrimage around the world that took him to different cities and countries with the aim of portraying the complexity of their current state. Each work created through this process represents an episode within an ideal visual novel, where visions, prophecies and reality are indistinguishable. The project is realised with the collaboration of The Blank Contemporary Art and thanks to the support of the Italian Council (7th Edition, 2019), a programme for the international promotion of Italian contemporary art of the Direzione Generale Creatività Contemporanea del Ministero della Cultura.

Gian Maria Tosatti, visual artist, has been invited to create the Italian Pavilion at the next Venice Biennial. He was recently appointed Artistic Director of the Quadriennale di Roma.
