On September 13th, Emilio Isgrò, an anthological exhibition curated by Germano Celant will be inaugurated at the Cini Foundation in Venice. The exhibition is structured as a journey through his prolific artistic production focused on the complex nature of language. Isgrò continues this investigation by devoting himself to the cancellation of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, highlighting extinct words and hidden messages. The text will flow on the walls in an immersive installation and will contain within it – as in the belly of a whale – a rich selection of artworks: from the first erasures of books dated 1964, up to the most recent ones of the Ottoman Codes.
The exhibition will remain open to the public until November 24th and will be accompanied by a catalog published by the Treccani publishing house.
