Myth and contemporary mythography in the room “Mystery” which hosted the paintings by Italian artist RENATO TAGLIABUE.
Renato Tagliabue was born in Milan in 1940. He lives and works in Giulianova in the province of Teramo, Italy. He has participated in several exhibitions in Italy and abroad and his works are in public collections including: Pinacoteca Comunale di Roseto degli Abruzzi – Daphne Museum of Contemporary Art in Capua – Museum of Contemporary Art in Monreale, Palermo.
Pergamon Altar, Arcadia, Laocoon puzzles are the titles of some works on display and they are part of the cycle of “Anachronisms” by sharing different eras between myth and modernity. Dancers or models, imported from fashion magazines to replace “Caryatids of the Erechtheum” in a sort of makeover or again, dance with ancient statues to the sound of the Pan flute in a dreamy Arcadia. The anachronisms are shards, digital processing, pictures cut from magazines, videos and posters, alongside elements and faces of myth.
