THE AMAZING SUITE OF THE FACELESS ARTIST
A series of music-inspired works made of industrial waste objects
ALUMINUM VIOLINS, VIOLAS, CELLOS AND DOUBLE BASSES
ARE SCATTERED IN THE ELEGANT ROOMS OF
PALAZZO CHIGI-SARACINI IN SIENA
After a series of important and successful exhibitions in Italy and abroad, amazing M’horó – the enigmatic artist whose face and identity are still a mystery – arrives in Siena with his instruments: thin and lightweight aluminum works the artist assembled from industrial wasted objects (mainly car radiators) to provoke and fascinate with an emphasis on environmentalism. “M’horó suite. Sculptures… for Orchestra” is the evocative title of the impressive production/collection of unique music-inspired works by M’horó that will be on display at Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, from July 6 to August 30. The exhibition is curated by Antonio Falbo, Salvatore Falbo and Minotauro Fine Art Gallery in Palazzolo sull’Oglio (the only gallery that represents the artist).
Among the admirers of the artist’s work there will be Vittorio Sgarbi, who, together with Antonio Falbo – the curator of M’horó’s official archive – will present the first volume of the general catalogue of the artist’s works. M’Horó always amazes the observer, but this time he does it even more than usual, showing the same technical virtuosity of a luthier and revealing the ability to create metal laceworks in which sculpture, iuxta propria principia, combines with the appeal and formal elegance of arches.
THE AUTHOR CONTINUES AMAZING US
WITH HIS TECHNICAL VIRTUOSITY, WHICH
REVEALS HIS GREAT ABILITY TO BUILD STRING INSTRUMENTS
The plastic and gestural becoming of M’Horó’s work turns waste items that are doomed to oblivion into pitching instruments that extroflect like the graceful sounding boxes of musical instruments. His aluminum violins, violas, cellos and double basses will be scattered around the elegant rooms of Palazzo Chigi-Saracini. Visitors will be welcomed by a string trio (a violin, a viola and a cello M’Horó has created on purpose) in the main hall of the palace.
The union between M’Horó and Siena is destined to make an impression, which will also be sealed by the concomitant awarding of prestigious international musicians and worthy students of the master classes. Prizes, which consist in real jewels the artist sculpted for the event, will be given during the gala evening. Contemporaneously, a solo show of the artist will be running in the rooms of the Novecento Gallery, in the historic city centre.
