I Peccati: the exhibition at Villa Medici reopens

todayJune 4, 2021


On Wednesday 28 April, in the spaces of the French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici, the exhibition “I sins” by Johan Creten reopened to the public and it ill remain accessible until the next 23rd May.

The exhibition, curated by Noëlle Tissier and created with the support of the Almine Rech and Perrotin galleries, collects, for the first time in Italy and on this scale, a set of fifty-five works in bronze, ceramic and resin, alongside some historical works .

The sculptures, some of which of impressive size, were created between 2019 and 2020 specifically for the exhibition and are added to the works that mark his career from the 1980s up until today. Combined with 16th and 17th century prints, tapestries and bas-reliefs from his personal collection, the works represent a reference to his creative process and reveal his personal reflections from an artistic, historical, political and philosophical point of view.

Forerunner, unclassifiable and counter-current, Johan Creten, born in 1963, is an artist who has distinguished himself in the artistic panorama of recent years as a strong, enigmatic and intriguing figure. Equipped with an extremely current vision of our society, he has been able to carve out a specific space within the international scene of contemporary creation, distinguishing himself in particular for the innovative use of ceramics, which he has helped to relaunch in the field of contemporary art.

The exhibition will be open every day except Tuesday and can only be visited through guided tours (only exhibition or exhibition + gardens) in Italian or French, bookable on the website https://www.villamedici. it / exhibitions / i-sins /
