2014, Taxidermy, Jesmonite

Press release: A modern and contemporary bestiary is the star of the show Zoote, a term used in ancient Greece were given the decorations python or leopard spots, the reasons that the centuries will reach the fashionable assemblies of Christian Dior. The genus animal has had different fortunes. 

Chronologically, the exhibition begins with a Rembrandt Bugatti bronze, star Art Deco, and closes with the last generation, represented by Paolo Grassino with his appearances of deer and dogs and Quentin Garel, son of art whose sculptures evoke the atmosphere of a visionary natural science museum.

Some have used animals between irony and puns, see Aldo Mondino, who pursues a hyper-realism based on an extraordinary technical virtuosity (Bertozzi & Casoni) and who is inspired by the fantastic zoology of Jorge Luis Borges as Nicola Bolla with its crystal sculptures and playing cards.
