Ágalma. Pietro Fortuna at Rome’s Quadriennale

Ágalma in Greek is a gift, an ornament. And Corona is Pietro Fortuna’s present to Rome’s Quadriennale – a block of marble that holds a series of small balls, coins, and a bell: objects located exactly where they need to be, as if conforming to a predetermined order. All the art pieces and videos on view at Villa Carpegna tell about the research of the artist-philosopher on a reality that is discharged from the need to have a meaning. The artworks don’t look for a sense outside of themselves, they don’t want to be a representation of reality, but evidence of the present. “Presence is the real theater of my art,” says Fortuna.
