Golden Age - Fabrizio Dusi

LIBERI, ANARCHY and UTOPIA: These words, spelt out in light and ceramics, punctuate the space at Monte Verità, evoking the iconic themes of the place’s century-old history. Visual artist Fabrizio Dusi has designed a trail running through the gardens and the indoor areas of the Bauhaus-style hotel featuring mantras and symbolic images: for example, a shining sun — a symbol of rebirth — and the naked bodies of the members of the ancient vegetarian colony, devout practisers of natur-ism and sun baths for maintaining a healthy body and mind.
In the centre of the gardens, the site-specific installation Eve and Adam refers to the desire to return to a life close to nature and links to the Golden Age in the Balint Hall, a vast series of fresco-like paintings. Here, the long narrative unfolds against the backdrop of a pristine landscape, featuring scenes of love and people holding hands in a ring: a poetic homage to the Clear World of the Blissful, a historic circular painting on display in the Elisarion Pavilion. The same Edenic vision is de- picted on a large vase with gold inserts added in the third firing, the subjects of which are inspired by the ideal garden of a new golden age. The exhibition is curated by Chiara Gatti.

Opening: Friday 2nd of July at 6.30 pm
